Profile

Personal Bio

Treatment Philosophy

Pain can be a frustrating dilemma and my goals are to quickly identify, treat and return patients to their preferred lifestyle. My philosophy is to minimize the use of invasive procedures and medications, while focusing on techniques that empower patients to be active in their own recovery. This occurs through patient education and proper coordination of the disciplines that serve them.

Personal Interests

I enjoy multiple athletic endeavors including martial arts, running, biking, swimming and tennis. I am also a member of Shakespeare Theatre.
