Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Behl "Treating patients with respect and compassion is the cornerstone of my approach to patient care. People come to me with pain and limitations in function, and I feel it is important to empathize with them and treat them as I would want to be treated. I also think it is important to always be available. It means being there on the sidelines and in the training room, on the weekends and late at night, making myself accessible whenever possible. the sooner I can treat a patient, the sooner I can get that patient on the road to recovery."
