Philosophy of Care

I believe in providing options for patients to control pain and improve function during everyday life using procedures and minimizing medication use are my goals for successful treatment. It is important to understand that patients who seek care before their pain is debilitating and those who are open to less familiar therapies attain the best outcomes.
