    Care Philosophy

    My belief is that the relationship between patient and provider is one of teamwork. It is my responsibility to provide patients with the most accurate information possible about their condition or injury and the patient’s responsibility to take an active role in their recovery. A healthy lifestyle is key to a successful recovery. When a patient comes to see us, they bring more than an injury or condition; they bring their expectations, individual needs, and personal experience. That’s why a caring relationship with patients and families is paramount to everything we do. We have the medical knowledge. The patient has the experience and expertise of knowing their own body. It is my goal to educate the patient and their family as the family is the best source of emotional support and information that can help with recovery. By working together can we improve our patient’s well-being and provide the best possible treatment.
