Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Poulter "I believe every patient deserves the best possible outcome. That's why I obtained the highest possible training for my specialty, going over and beyond what is required of a general orthopaedist. Our staff also goes the extra mile so that you spend more time with me, and less time waiting for me. This allows me to customize a treatment plan that fits the way you want to live, work and play. The best medicine is practiced when doctor and patient connect with each other in a meaningful way."

Dr Poulter has operated on me twice now and could be happier. His bedside is just as good as his surgical abilities as I'm back at work being a Firefighter?paramedic when I was told by other Doctors I would never be able to do my job again. Thank you
