He completed his Master of Science in Nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice at Duke University. Now, focusing on men’s health, his objective is to provide a “whole person” or holistic approach in his care through developing a long trusting relationship with all his patients and including them in the plan of care. He states, “What I enjoy most as a medical provider is helping patients achieve optimal health status and improve their overall functionality, this is why I am here”.
Timothy follows the advice he gives his patients and focuses his overall health on weight reduction and maintenance, exercise, and a heart healthy diet including many fruits and vegetables. He states that there are many chronic health conditions that can be controlled through diet, physical exercise, and stress reduction through yoga, therapy, and meditation. Timothy enjoys spending his free time with his wife and children. They enjoy going on walks in the park, fishing, dining out, making meals together, and vacationing in the Outer Banks, NC and Ocean City, MD.
