Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, Fred was very fortunate to get an excellent education thanks to the extremely hard work and sacrifice of his parents. He discovered early on he loved the West and attended college in Denver at Regis University.
With an eye on being in the medical profession, Fred ended up back in Indiana where he obtained a master’s degree in Cardiac Physiology before attending Indiana University Medical School. Based on the master’s program, he thought he would be a cardiologist, but, a long story later … he ended up specializing in Urology.
Being matched for residency in the Urology Department at UNM Hospital and the 5 years of that training program, Fred discovered a love for New Mexico, the land, and the people, although honestly, he did not see too much outside of the hospital walls in those early years.
Fred decided to stay in Albuquerque after residency and opened a Urology practice. The initially solo practice slowly built into a single specialty group that at one time boasted 6 urologists. New Mexico invested wisely in Fred’s medical training as he has remained in NM his whole career. Through his dedication to the Land of Enchantment he has provided tremendous amounts of care to New Mexicans all over the state, including clinics in Grants and Socorro for 17 years. Today, Fred is the longest practicing Urologist in New Mexico. Fred is blessed to have two beautiful sons who both live on the Albuquerque’s West side.
Fred has been a registered Libertarian since 2010. He is motivated by the love of our country, our constitution, and a vision of possibilities beyond the mess our current 2 party system has devolved into. Please join Fred in moving New Mexico forward.
