"Pain counts every second, minute, hour…every day, listen to your pain, don't give up, fight it or it becomes eternal." Let me be the helping hand that cures your disease, that fixes your pain. I am a human being looking to help others, I might have the information and knowledge but you may know more about your disease. I look to build a partnership of trust that goes both ways, the best care happens not only when the doctor understands the patient but when the patient understands the doctor, this only occurs overtime. Together we will fight your condition for a better life with minimal or no pain.
