My Care Philosophy

I provide evidenced-based and patient-centered care.  The focus is first to understand what the underlying reason for the patient’s complaint of pain.  Then, I work with my patients to determine an individualized plan that has three goals; i) pain reduction, ii) improvement in function, and iii) development of independence.
