Philosophy Of Care

I believe patient care should begin with establishing a relationship based on mutual trust through clear and open communication. Paying keen attention to the patient’s history and exam leads to an accurate diagnosis and early development of a patient-directed treatment plan. I strive to listen to unique patient concerns and understands the desire to return to daily activities, work or sports. My goal is to provide compassionate care no different from how I would treat my friends or family members.
