After completing his education and residency training, Steve returned home in 2000 to open PROMPT. In the years that PROMPT has been open, the clinic has garnered a reputation for excellence, thanks to Steve’s dedication and work ethic. He truly loves his patients and thrives on seeing them overcome obstacles to walk in wholeness and health. When not at work, Steve enjoys gardening, cycling, running, weight training, and spending time with family and friends. He and his wife Mary have three adult children and currently attend Trinity Community Church.

“I’m a yardman at heart. Just like I enjoy using my hands to help people heal, I like working with my hands in the dirt.  I don’t really have a green thumb, but I can always dig a hole twice.”

“I spend as much time outdoors as possible, whether it’s in the yard, at the beach, or in the mountains.  Nature is God’s prescription for refreshing my soul.”
