The goal of every patient encounter to iden­ti­fy the full extent of the clin­i­cal con­di­tion and offer effec­tive treat­ment options. I strive to teach my patients about their diag­no­sis so that can become engaged and active part­ners in their recov­ery process. It is tremen­dous­ly sat­is­fy­ing to work togeth­er with my patients to get them back on their feet.
