Philosophy Of Care

As a fellowship trained physiatrist in interventional spine and musculoskeletal medicine, my goal is to improve pain and function through evidence-based non-operative treatments and interventions. I believe that improving the understanding of musculoskeletal conditions and involving the patient in their treatment plan leads to the most effective outcomes.

Dr. Graham is a very good listener. He always takes time to answer questions and explain possible treatments.
No Rating Given
Dr. Graham spent a lot of time going over the pros and cons of the treatment I had decided on. He referred me to a surgeon if my condition worsened or didn't respond to the steroid injections. But he emphasized that surgery would be the last option and he would do whatever he could to lessen my pain first and foremost.
