"My philosophy of care is to deliver compassionate, convenient care of exceptional quality, while educating the patient about their specific injury or condition. I work with every one of my patients to formulate a treatment plan specific to their needs, whether that is return to sports, recreational activities, work, or even 'simple' everyday activities. My goal is to help patients recover their lost function and minimize their pain, while giving guidance to prevent a recurrence so they can perform optimally in all aspects of life. Although some patients require surgical intervention, I recommend starting with conservative treatments, like physical therapy after a thorough examination, with appropriate imaging like X-ray or MRI."
