Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.

Healthgrades updates the Recognized Doctor list quarterly based on board certification data. Healthgrades also receives sanction and malpractice data throughout the year, depending on how frequently the state medical boards release updates.
We remove a newly sanctioned doctor from the Recognized Doctor list as soon as we receive the information. However, it is important to note that malpractice information is publically available in only 14 states.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

I hope to create a close patient-doctor relationship based on trust and mutual respect. I believe my patients' medical treatment begins with their complete understanding of their condition. I believe that a patient can never be given too much accurate and useful information. With this in mind, I make every effort to first and foremost- listen to my patient. Then I spend the time necessary to educate them on every detail of the treatment plan. Lastly I am dedicated towards maintaining my orthopaedic knowledge and expertise as cutting edge as possible. I am dedicated to solving problems that cause pain."
