Philosophy of Care

I enjoy helping people and working with patients to find solutions to their foot and ankle problems is my guiding principle. I strive to make the most accurate and complete diagnosis, explain my findings and opinions clearly and discuss the treatment options thoroughly with my patients. This approach leads to care that is safe, effective and centered on the goals and needs of my patients.
