Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Corbett "My understanding of the relationship between a physician and patient is that we work together to accomplish a desired goal. My principle roll is to provide the patient with accurate information about their condition or diagnosis. That usually includes defining non-operative and operative options for treatment that are available in managing a particular condition. As an orthopedic surgeon, my skills include a variety of very specific surgical procedures which benefit patients with orthopedic conditions. I give my best effort in applying my skills, my experience, advancing and ever changing technologies and my judgment to each circumstance or situation. I strive to provide the highest level and quality of care to all of my patients."

This is by far the worst doctor that I have ever encountered. She was condescending and downright rude. I went to her with an ankle issue. Never again. Don't go to this person for any help or compassion
