"I strive to provide empathetic and compassionate care to a wide variety of patients with musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. Having been a lifelong athlete myself, I have experienced many similar injuries and understand the frustration with setbacks of everyday life and lifestyles. I center my care on education and want every patient to understand their diagnosis and the treatment options available to them. This allows us to jointly make decisions about what is best for their individual situation. I want to tell patients what they can do, not what they can't do."
