My Passion for Healthcare

I chose physical medicine and rehabilitation to help folks improve their function and treat the whole person. I enjoy using my knowledge to serve patients in very practical ways. I often meet patients with medical conditions that result in significant functional impairments.

I find it very rewarding to design creative and unique treatment plans to assist these patients in their efforts to navigate personal hurdles.
