Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kontogianis "I speak with my patients, not at them. Quite simply, my job is to get them back to doing whatever it was that they were doing before they got hurt. I understand what it's like to have to give up something you love doing and hope my patients won't have to."
