Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

Pain is soul destroying. As a Pain Medicine Physician, I have the distinct privilege of treating the most devastating of illnesses, chronic pain. No one should have to endure unrelenting pain that interferes with basic activities of daily life. There are many options that can help and while a cure is difficult, appropriate management can minimize its impact on daily life and interaction with others. Pills alone are not the answer and should be used as complements to other modalities.Read more
