We are a husband and wife team who trained in Europe, graduating more than a decade ago from ULB (Université Libre de Bruxelles). We had our own practice in Belgium, but also did Emergency Room and Intensive Care Unit coverage, as well as donating our time as physicians in the service of the Belgian Red Cross.
After relocating to the USA, we completed Residency in Internal Medicine at LSU. While waiting for the right opportunity to start a practice in Florida, we worked for the Veterans Administration Hospital in Louisiana. Muriel also worked in a Radiation Oncology Center and Steve covered a traditional private practice. We settled in Bradenton at the end of 2002 with our son Alexi, who was 18 months old at the time. In 2004 we welcomed the birth of our daughter Nathalie.
