John completed his medical training at the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine and his undergraduate degree at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Massachusetts. He earned his doctorate degree in Biomaterials Engineering from the University of Florida. He has a background as an executive and in doing research in materials science, biomaterials, orthopedics, cardiology, and urology.

Married with three children, John is an amateur chef who loves to garden and has a passion for diabetes care, diet, and nutrition. He also enjoys woodworking, fishing, and boating.
John believes healthcare is built upon a trusting relationship between the provider and the patient. “Taking the time to get to know the patient as an individual (what they spend their days doing, what their home and family life is like, what their interests and goals are) often provides better information about their health than any test.”
John is welcoming new patients at our Pittsfield practice, located at 470 Somerset Avenue. Call 487.5154 to make an appointment.
