About Me

It is my practice philosophy to help each patient return to their lifestyle goals through non-surgical treatments whenever possible. To reach this goal, I begin with a thorough patient history to help better understand the factors influencing the patient's condition. This review of medical history is followed by a physical examination for further anatomical detection of the pain source.

Knowledgeable and willing to share information which I find many doctors do not do. Willing to go into detail as to what would work and why other options would not. I was pleased with the doctors manner and would recommend him.
