Personal Bio

Treatment Philosophy

Pain is a disabling condition that can not only impair one's physical function and capabilities, but also have an effect on the mind and spirit. My philosophy is to use a whole body and multi-disciplinary approach to the management of those with painful conditions as well as other conditions impairing function via therapy modalities, medications, patient education, and injections along with other interventional procedures.

Personal Interests

In my spare time, I enjoy cheering on our Chicago sports teams as well as playing tennis and basketball. I also enjoy music, trying out new restaurants and cooking.
