My Approach to Treating Patients
My practice focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder and elbow injuries and conditions. I chose these specialties because I am interested in the complexity of these joints as well as the nuances of various treatments for their pathologies. It is very rewarding to help my patients increase their physical activity and participate in activities that fulfill their lives. I strive to empower my patients with information and answer any questions they may have.
