“The most important asset each of us has is our health. As an internal medicine and pain management physician for over twenty years, I have focused on serving our veteran and underserved population. I have grown increasingly concerned with our health care system and this issue has been at the forefront of our National agenda for some time. While we spend more per capita on health care than any other country, we lag behind many other nations in our health outcomes. The direction that health care reform will take has yet to be determined . My foremost consideration has always been to maximize the health and well being of each of my patients. As a Congressman, I would endeavor to provide the best health care possible for all of our citizens.”
