Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gonzalez-Cota "I believe the human body has a blueprint for self-healing from injury or disease; my job as a physician is to enhance that process with an individualized interventional approach to increase physical function, promote the return to a productive lifestyle at home or at work, and limit the need for future spine, joint, or nerve treatments."
