My Passion for Healthcare

I decided to go into healthcare/physical therapy in college when I switched from an engineering major to medicine/PT in order to have a career that is hands-on and focuses on helping people to heal and function better. Since then I have never looked back and continue to appreciate the ability of the human body and spirit to recover function after injury or illness. I began evaluating and treating patients in nursing homes and outpatient clinics and then specialized in orthopedic manual PT. After further intense study/practice I became a board-certified specialist in Orthopedic PT in 1998.

Services I Provide

  1. Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy
  2. Comprehensive Physical Exam/Evaluation
  3. Hip/Pelvis/Sacroiliac Care
  4. Shoulder and Upper Extremity Care
  5. Cervical Spine/Neck Care
  6. Foot/Ankle/Knee Care, Custom Orthotics
  7. Thoraco-Lumbar Spine Care/Mid,Lower Back

My Clinical Focus

I am passionate about giving high-quality, patient-centered orthopedic physical therapy. I usually have an intern with me in the clinic as I strongly believe that teaching the next generation of physical therapists to become competent clinicians happens with good clinical instruction and experience. High-level rehabilitation starts when the therapist listens to his patient and gives them a thorough physical exam to determine the cause of the patient's pain or problem. The PT helps patients to prioritize problems, set goals and understand how to help heal themselves.
