Care Philosophy

My practice is very personal in nature. I tailor treatments that are as individual as my patients' needs. I take a very patient-centered, conservative approach so patients don't waste time on treatments they don't need and can focus on a faster, more efficient recovery. I allow plenty of time for evaluating patients, reviewing scans together, and educating them on all their treatment options in a relaxed setting.Read more
