Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Belongie "I treat a broad spectrum of patients and their orthopedic problems. I value contact with my patients and personally see them at office visits before and after surgery. I embrace conservative treatments when appropriate, and surgery when these other options have failed. And I do not hesitate to help arrange appropriate referral for problems which may be out of my scope of practice. I'm very open to other cultures, and I speak Spanish fluently for those more comfortable in that language. Yo soy fluente en espanol si le es mas comodo hablar en su idioma."
