Philosophy of Care

As an experienced and well-rounded therapist, I have been involved in all phases of orthopaedics from acute care and home-based rehabilitation, to high level sports rehab and injury prevention. I enjoy treating a wide variety of patients and can easily connect with our pediatric and elderly patients. Through compassion and listening to my patients needs, I can objectively design an individualized, comprehensive plan of care that emphasizes patient education and their return to function.
