About Me

Care Philosophy

The vast majority of my patients end up markedly improved without needing to succumb to surgery. And, if surgery is needed, I would certainly opt for the least invasive, rather than accept the modern trend of more involved, which only increases risk without raising the rate of successful outcomes.

Dr. Jamaris did an outstanding job. After other doctors tried and failed to identify and correct the problem - requiring an investment of thousands of dollars (after insurance) by me for tests - Dr. Jamaris ordered two conventional tests which clearly displayed the problem.
