Care Philosophy

"It is my philosophy to maintain or return a patient to their desired level of function and activity as quickly as possible. I do not believe in treating a patient based solely on age, lab results, or x-rays, but rather focus on a patient's desire to participate in sports, work, and activities of daily life regardless of chronological age. To accomplish this I work in close coordination with the patient, staff, coaches, and therapists to define and achieve our goals."Read more
