Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Al-Shaikh "From the very first visit, I make a conscious effort to establish a warm, friendly rapport with each of my patients to encourage open and direct communication. I listen to your needs, include them in my diagnosis and treatment decisions, and welcome your input and feedback each step of the way. Any injury causes you concern and anxiety - you may not know what is wrong and what needs to be done to correct your injury. My main approach to helping heal your injury is to keep you well informed"
