Philosophy of Medicine

"My practice is different than most in that I meet most of my patients after a very traumatic event and injury (usually a broken bone). I attempt to put the patient and their loved ones at ease in this stressful time. I discuss options with them to choose the best treatment plan for them as an individual to help maximize their recovery and return them as close to their prior level of function as possible."
