get to know me

I chose my specialty because...

I've always enjoyed working with my hands and building things, from erecter sets to scale models of aircrafts, ships and buildings. I felt that I could translate my perfectionist tendencies in building things into fixing people. Having participated in a number of sports growing up including baseball and attaining a black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do directed my interest towards sports medicine. I could not imagine doing anything else in medicine other than orthopaedic surgery.

I chose to work at Dayton Children's because...

I joined Dr. Albert and Dr. Lehner after a 21 year Air Force career. During my 12 years as an orthopaedic surgeon at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, I worked part-time at Dayton Children's prior to my Air Force Retirement in 2004. Dayton Children's was the perfect size, in a great community, with a superb staff and I knew it was the right fit for me.

Dayton Children's is special because...

of its superb dedicated staff, it's great physical facility and it's just the right size in a wonderful midwest community.

Yeah, I was totally satisfied with the service. However, once we got into the room, and after the athletic trainer spoke to us. It was a good 30 or 40 minutes at least, or maybe more before the doctor come in, and it was a little bit frustrating. Thank you.

We had to wait over 45 minutes to see the doctor.

Our visit with his orthopedic doctor was very disappointing. He did not seem informed on the condition that my son had. He did not know what to what advice to give us, was going to send him for physical therapy. They were times where he sat and stared at us, he seemed like a very nice man but maybe needs to retire and seemed very clueless and confused throughout the entire time. So I actually took my son for a second opinion to see a different orthopedic doctor, in 5 minutes was able to evaluate him, diagnosed him with what the condition was.
