Philosophy of Care

The treatment of the child with musculoskeletal concern must begin with a physician understanding the concerns of the family. I believe in involving families in treatment decisions and providing them with the information to make these decisions in an informed and empowered manner.

That’s a tremendous amount of screen time that continues to increase every year. Aside from being annoying to parents, tech usage comes with potential health risks to children.
