Exercise is the best medicine, for everyone young and old. My background in Family Medicine and specialty training in Sports Medicine allows me to understand the needs of my patients and allows me to partner with them not just for their injuries, but also for improving their overall health and wellness. I consider it a privilege to assist my patients in realizing their full potential in everything they do on and off the playing field.
In my free time I enjoy running, yoga, tennis, cooking and spending time with my daughters.
Conditions & Procedures
Primary Care Sports Medicine,
Resident and Doctor were extremely condescending. They looked at my record and saw I had a history of anxiety and depression, then talked to me and asked questions that referred my pain as a manifestation of my anxiety. I was teary when describing the impact of my pain on my daily work, and they attributed my tears to my depression. They actually told me my pain was disproportionate to what they felt I should be experiencing. Said my patella was like a giant funny bone, and that it was like I was over-exaggerating. When discussing physical therapy, they got the impression I was not interested in participating or unwilling to comply and asked me if I was to be walked over to the physical therapy room, if I would participate right now. Essentially, I felt unheard, talked down to, and bullied into accepting the only solution to my pain was physical therapy (which I have participated in MANY times before), with no answers as to how I may keep myself safe at work in order to prevent further injuries.
