Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Etminan "As a spinal surgeon and practitioner, I pride myself on being able to offer my patients the full spectrum of care from emotional encouragement , to physical therapy, injections, and surgery if necessary. I want my patients understand that over 90 percent of patient we see are treated with non-operative methods. I, however, believe that care should delivered in a timely fashion."
