Established in 1971 by the Congress of Delegates, the AAFP degree of Fellow recognizes members who have earned respect from among their colleagues for service in family medicine, and ongoing professional development. From a personal perspective, being a Fellow signifies not only 'tenure' but also the physician’s additional work within the community, within organized medicine, within teaching, and indicates a greater commitment to continuing professional development and/or research.

He has served as the family medicine provider in the St. Anthony Coon Rapids Clinic for the past four years, and currently cares for patients at the St. Anthony Family Care Physicians Clinic, in Carroll.
