It's no surprise that kids always seem to bursting with energy. But when should parents be concerned that their rambunctious little one could have ADHD?

Introduction

I grew up in a small town in Wyoming, but moved to South Dakota to attend medical school at the University of South Dakota. I did my pediatric training at the University of Arizona and I followed that with a fellowship in sports medicine halfway across the United States in Buffalo, N.Y.

I am motivated to come to work every day because of the kids. I love working with children and building relationships with their families as the kids grow and develop. I feel privileged to have an opportunity to be a part of families’ lives.

My wife and I moved to Sioux Falls a few years ago, and it’s great to be back in South Dakota. In my spare time, I like spending time outside and playing with our dog.
