I was raised in Tuttle, Oklahoma. I graduated college from Southwestern Oklahoma State University with a degree in Biology while working as an E.M.T. Eventually I went on to finish my certification as a paramedic before starting medical school at The University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Missouri. It was at medical school that I met my wife, Dr. Lydia Dennis, and we both went on to complete a family practice residency at Via Christi in Wichita, KS.
I have been practicing in the Mustang-Yukon, Oklahoma area for approximately fourteen years. I recently began to appreciate that the standard “sick” model of healthcare (where patients are placed on more and more medicine) does NOT make patients better and have decided to make a practice change to correct course. There is vastly more opportunity to get people well in a direct primary care setting where time is not constrained to fifteen-minute appointments!
I am passionate about health and fitness and practice what I preach. My desire to practice medicine in the context of wellness led me to become one of only a few doctors in Oklahoma certified in Anti-Aging Medicine. As a self-proclaimed “bio-hacker” I try to stay up to date on the latest research for achieving optimal health. I took that pursuit of knowledge to a new level when I started my podcast titled “Fit RX.” My passion for testosterone replacement therapy has led me to become one of Oklahoma’s leading experts in the field.
When I am not exercising, sitting in my sauna, or reaping the longevity benefits of sitting in a cold pool, I enjoy being with my family, hunting, playing guitar, and watching movies with the volume turned up loud!
