David practiced rural family medicine and anesthesia for over 10 years prior to joining the CAPRI Clinic in 2016. Since then he has received much additional training in assessing and treating chronic musculoskeletal conditions, in particular spine conditions. Working with Dr Burnham and being mentored by him has allowed him to get experience in all types of musculoskeletal and spine interventions. He does imaged guided procedures with both ultrasound and flourscopy.

When not working, David most enjoys spending time working on his hobby farm, hiking, fishing, camping and spending time with his wife and 5 children.
