I was born in Boone County Hospital (now NARMC) in 1962, graduated with honors at HHS (’80), honor societies at University of Arkansas (’83), and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (’87) in Little Rock. After starting residency in 1987 at Area Health Education Center – Fayetteville (extension of UAMS), I joined Dr. Bob Langston (dad) part time in 1988 and then full time in 1990.
I married Cindy in 1983 and we have 3 children and their families. For more information on them, ask me in person. I like to hike, garden, travel and attend Goblin and Razorback athletic events. I have two brothers who also live in Harrison – Bill and Jim (the surgeon with whom I am regularly confused).
After practicing 28 years in Harrison fulltime in the same location, I needed to make a change to a less stressful situation with a little more margin in my schedule for grandchildren, slowing down, and travel. I had planned to retire but didn’t feel I could leave all my long-term patients in a lurch, so I decided to try a solo practice with some new technologies – trying to meet the significant needs of seniors while still being able to see patients that have acute illnesses and injuries. Managing long term chronic illnesses (associated with aging) well is the challenge of the future, and we’re going to give it our best shot.
