Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Nora "My philosophy of care is to listen and understand the concerns and symptoms of each patient. We will first explore nonsurgical treatments to alleviate the pain. If those are not effective, then we will look at surgical options to improve the patient's quality of life. I would like each and every patient and their family members to leave my office with the comfort of understanding the next phase of their care with all questions answered. "
