Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pereira "My goal is to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care for patients. An important part of that is educating patients on their condition and treatment options so that they can be actively involved in their own care. I firmly believe that the most effective treatment plan is one in which the doctor, the patient, and the physical therapist all communicate and work together as a team."
