Meet John

I am a graduate from Defiance High School. My father was a physician in Defiance and he inspired me to choose my career path as a physician bringing me back to Defiance my training. I am a Board Certified General Surgeon trained to operate laparoscopically and robotically. I enjoy helping patients and making them feel better.
