Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Irby Jr "I believe in treating every patient as I would want to be treated. Often surgery is not needed. I try conservative treatment first, surgery should be the last option. For those requiring surgery, these surgeries are often done under epidural anesthesia as an outpatient."
