Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Matthews "" My care philosophy is to listen to the patients' problem, examine their total health history, and try to tailor a treatment plan to solve or lessen the problem, starting with the most conservative approach. I thrive on helping my patients reduce or eliminate their pain, and become active again. It is very rewarding to watch someone to come in and see me with a significant problem, work with them over time, and see them return to their prior level of activity".
