Career:

physician placed in a Rural Health Manpower Shortage Area, a government designation of
underserved people where doctors who have signed on with the government are placed to serve time
. The government paid for two years of my medical training, so I “owed them” two years in a Rural
Health Manpower Shortage Area. Clayton New Mexico was where our Federal Government placed
me. I stayed in this Rural Health Manpower Shortage area, and over a 30 year period built, with my
own income, a “University Style” medical center. This facility was so advanced that it was at least
10 years before its time. It had 8 fully equipped medical exam rooms with Ethernet computers and
electronic medical records. It had a 16 slice spiral CT scanner in office for full body CT, but more
importantly Cardiac CT and Cardiac CT angiography. The clinic had full cardiac ultrasound, color
flow Doppler ultrasound, Abdominal, OB, Prostate, Vascular and General Ultrasound in house. I
became fully certified in Cardiac Ultrasound and Vascular Ultrasound. The clinic became the
primary cardiac care center of Northeaster New Mexico.

using CT, Ultrasound. I also was the hospital intensivist, placing all the pacemakers, Swan Ganz
lines, doing all the ICU management and extreme medical post operative care programs. I did this

United States Patent # 5,259,837 November 9, 1993 “Acoustically Enhanced Catheter,” Abstract:
“A percutaneous transluminal angioplasty or atherectomy catheter is acoustically enhanced by
placing at least two ultrasonographically detectable markers, one at the proximal end and one at the
distal limits of the catheter balloon. The location of the catheter in the artery is thereby correctly
positioned by ultrasonographic imaging.”
