Care Philosophy

I work with patients that have physical impairments and disabilities including patients that are living with chronic or acute pain as well as traumatic brain injuries. My goal is to enhance and restore functional ability and optimize quality of life.

One of my goals is to ensure that my patients understand why they are experiencing their symptoms and what they can do about them. I help them understand what the range of treatment options that are available. If this requires further diagnostic imaging or referrals to other specialists I ensure they get the best care I am able to provide.

    Dr Stephenson is a great Dr. he does one thing you will find the most difficult thing to get form a Dr these days, he listens and answers questions. I have found that so many Dr's are just so busy they don't have time or take time to listen to their patients. He is very proactive which I find to be very helpful.
