Practices In: Lombard
Patients Seen: All Ages

I enjoy work­ing with patients from all types of back­grounds. I enjoy devel­op­ing pro­fes­sion­al rela­tion­ships with my patients and take pride in being an active lis­ten­er. I strive to pro­vide qual­i­ty one-on-one time with patients to enable them to obtain the most of their time in phys­i­cal ther­a­py. I feel that pro­vid­ing patients with edu­ca­tion on their diag­no­sis, the plan of care and pre­ven­tion strate­gies is an essen­tial aspect of treat­ment. My goal is to pro­vide patients with the edu­ca­tion they require to even­tu­al­ly man­age their cur­rent symp­toms inde­pen­dent­ly and to pre­vent future episodes from occurring.
