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 very good at listening and understanding, he hears what I have to say about my back pain. I also appreciate the diagrams and explanation of which nerves are being affected.
dr. co was wonderful! he spent lots of time making sure I understood everything. one of the best experiences I have had with a doctor.
Dr Co is fantastic.
I have recommended Dr. Co to several people, and will continue to do so. The last Ablation I had didn't work; in addition, I had developed a puzzling new set of symptoms. Dr. Co is so familiar with my MRI that he didn't even have to look at again- he remembered every relevant detail, and after a brief exam made a diagnosis, and as he has in the past, explained the source of the pain by by showing me on an anatomical replica how the treatment he had selected would reduce the inflammation that was causing my pain.
*Dr. Co is friendly, personable takes time to listen & responds with easy to understand vocabulary. Excellent!
He spent a lot of time with me explaining my options. I really appreciated it. He gave me hope.
I couldn't recommend him more highly. Easy to talk to and very informative.
*Dr. Co is truly exceptional, very caring doctor!
