“I believe in providing patients with education to live a healthy lifestyle, as well as providing them with exceptional clinical care. I like to work closely with patients to set physical goals which will result in the best quality of life possible for each patient. I focus on educating them about the pathology of neck, hip, shoulder and knee injuries to achieve pain management. I also talk with them about fitness and nutrition as a part of orthopedic health.”
