Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Joshi "My goal as a physiatrist is to maximize functional improvement in my patients.  Whether it be patients with back, neck, or musculoskeletal pain or patients whom I have had the pleasure to work with on the acute rehab unit I want them to be able to complete their activities of daily living without pain or additional assistance/modifications.  Our clinic provides an excellent patient experience and my commitment to this experience is to provide a thorough visit with an extended amount of time to individualize treatment plans to each specific patient/problem.  Our staff does an excellent job in navigating the healthcare system if additional referrals are needed and our participation in the Mercy Spine program provides a one stop shop for a wide variety of services for back/neck pain."
