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.
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.

Dr.Co is the best and most caring doctor I have ever had and I have been to many doctors. I know that he always has my best interest at heart and that he actually cares to help me find a solution to get better. He's super nice and I have recommended him to other people. Another thing that is great about him is that he explains the condition so well and listens to me. I love how he brings out the spine to explain things for me to understand. Dr. Co is my favorite doctor and definitely deserves recognition! Thanks, Dr. Co.
Dr. Co is an excellent doctor. He is very caring, and has helped me. He is on the top of my list of doctors.
Dr.Co was excellent.
Excellent listening skills - I feel like Dr Co really hears what I'm saying and responds to all of my concerns.
Can't say enough good things about Dr. Co. My situation is complicated and he listened, offered helpful suggestions and encouragement, as well as treatment.
Dr Co very insightful. Supported my next step, surgery. Discussed Gabapentin as pain med and prescribed it for me
Meeting with Dr. Co was a great experience all the way around. I would definitely return to see him if I need further treatment, and I would recommend him to family and friends.
Dr Co is the best!
Best doctor visit I have had in 10 years. Some of the above does not apply. Very personable and listened to my concerns.
