He seemed to be in a hurry but was great. I am RN & my husband who was with me & an MD, we assumed he had surgery & was running a little behind. He is a great man & very positive & kind. I trust him 100%.

In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
