My office provides outstanding service in a compassionate, friendly and inviting environment. I strive to treat each patient as an individual, with the same quality and attention I would like for myself. I want your experience with me, however long or short, to be a pleasant one, where you walk away feeling better and having learned more about the condition for which you presented. Pain is usually the last symptom of a bigger problem. I teach and practice using the 5-facets of Health: Diet/Nutrition, Sleep/Rest, Exercise, Positive Mental attitude and Preventative Medical Care. I look at the whole person in an effort to get them well and keep them healthy. I do my best to explain everything to my patients, educating them along the way and always giving them choices about what treatments are available for their condition. I believe in honesty, and if their condition requires a referral to a more qualified physician, I will be the first to let you know. Your health is my priority.
