My train­ing at the Hos­pi­tal for Spe­cial Surgery in New York, a lead­ing orthopaedic hos­pi­tal, cre­at­ed a strong desire to edu­cate my patients regard­ing their neck and back con­di­tion, as I believe a well-informed patient can bet­ter par­tic­i­pate dur­ing a joint deci­sion-mak­ing process. I am focused on max­i­miz­ing the over­all patient expe­ri­ence and stream­lin­ing high-qual­i­ty spine care for my patients.
