Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Krishnamurthy "As a Physiatrist (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Doctor) and Pain specialist, I evaluate to find out what is causing the pain and limitation in function, and offer treatment to make it better. When a condition cannot be reversed, I endeavor to make it manageable. While many of my recommendations involve injection and therapies, a lot could be accomplished just by knowing what the issue is."

Dr K. is friendly, smart and caring. He uses anatomy books to show diagnoses and treatment options. I have seen many specialists, he is impressive at a time when many Dr's are not. Injections were easy and quick.
