Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pastor "My care philosophy is best summarized by Dr. W.J. Mayo, M.D., who said that "The best interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered".  I try to focus my care to improve the overall outcome of my patients.  I use new and evidence-based surgical and non-surgical techniques to treat all factors that may hinder a patient's overall outcome.  Some of my newest techniques include using virtual reality and electric muscle stimulation to control post-surgical pain.  "

Dr. Andrew had gave me a thorough diagnosis on the inflammatory of my inner knee. He did a few test with the knee movement to ensure that nothing seriously damaged. And he make me feel at ease about the pain. Very professional in his area.
