Philosophy of Care

“My care philosophy is to listen to the patients’ problem, examine their total health history, and try to tailor a treatment plan to solve or lessen the problem, starting with the most conservative approach. I thrive on helping my patients reduce or eliminate their pain, and become active again. It is very rewarding to watch someone come in to see me with a significant problem, work with them over a period of time, and see them return to their prior level of activity.”
