My goal is to help patients recover from pain and injury in order to return to the active lifestyles that they enjoy. I believe strongly in promoting wellness and injury prevention, and the importance of educating patients in order to empower them in their health care decisions. In these times of exponentially increasing health care costs and diminishing benefits from third-party payers, I see a need to provide an effective alternative to clinics dependent upon insurance reimbursement to pay for services. I believe that patients deserve quality for their money, therefore, all my sessions are one-on-one with plenty of time to thoroughly investigate the nature of the patient's injury and design a customized treatment program to meet the patient's individual needs. I am also committed to ongoing continuing educating as well as peer interaction to promote clinical and professional growth.
I am committed to continual professional and educational development in order to provide the highest quality care to my patients and advocate wellness to the community at large.
I am dedicated to providing thoughtful and evidence-based rehabilitation of Orthopedic and Sports Injuries.
