Care Philosophy

I work to develop a partnership with my patients, and this begins with listening. One of the most important pieces of information that I like to hear is how your symptoms affect your quality of life. We will discuss my findings and the details of your diagnosis. I believe that knowledgeable and informed patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. I will then present you with the reasonable treatment options and allow you to select which you would like to pursue. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques. If non-surgical treatments fail or if your injury is best treated with surgery, we will discuss the details as well as the risks and benefits of the procedure. My approach is to handle each and every patient visit with care and proficiency. It is also highly important to us that our Doctor/Patient relationship is open and honest. It is my responsibility to make sure patients are well informed about their conditions and treatment options.
