Care Philosophy

As doctors we want to keep people healthy, and as orthopaedic surgeons, we want to keep people happy. We do that by eliminating disability and pain. When something is going wrong with your body, my goal is to discover the cause and make you better... and happier. Whether that means stopping painful numbness, weakness, or arthritic pain, there are often a variety of options to help, not all surgical. Patients deserve an understanding of what is wrong and a skilled caregiver to help them heal.

Patient Comments (2)
in Auburn, WA |
I felt as if I was treated as a number. He wouldn't thoroughly answer my questions, the appointments were rushed-he wanted me in and out to move on to the next patient. (This wasn't just a one time occurrence) and the education about my surgery was very little. He was arrogant. He seemed like he's ready to retire and is only in this for the money at this point. I certainly would not recommend him to any of my family and friends.

If you have a of time to wait the you will be fine.Great Doctor but his staff at Bonney Lake is rather rude. Surgery times in Auburn may change so be aware to clear your schedule for the day.
