Patients Seen: Adults

I enjoy build­ing rap­port with my patients and assist­ing them to return to a bet­ter qual­i­ty of life. I believe in pro­vid­ing patients with the nec­es­sary knowl­edge and tools to allow them to self man­age their con­di­tions. I strive to devel­op cus­tomized treat­ment plans and home exer­cise pro­grams that will assist patients in achiev­ing their goals and opti­miz­ing their func­tion. Since I have a strong inter­est in well­ness and pre­ven­tive care, I aspire to edu­cate patients on how to pro­tect their bod­ies and pre­vent fur­ther injury. I also val­ue con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion since it enhances my treat­ment skills and patient outcomes.
