Biography

Biography

I strive for meticulousness and attention to detail in all of the general orthopedic and hand/upper extremity care I provide to patients. This has led to fantastic patient outcomes, even in the face of devastating injury and/or disease.

I sub-specialize in the care of the upper limb (including the brachial plexus, shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, and hand) and pride myself in taking my time and utilizing my maximal effort and critical thinking for each and every case. Most importantly, I give patients the time and attention they need, despite the fast-paced "go, go, go" nature of today's health care environment. Treating everyone as if they were a family member keeps my patients exceptionally happy with my treatment decisions. Furthermore, this keeps patients, their family members and their close friends coming back for more of my care that everyone deserves and should expect of all physicians.

Lastly, all patients make a tacit pact with me to comply with our agreed upon treatment decisions, which places the onus on the patient to get better in therapy once they have left my sight. My overall goal is to accurately diagnose your condition and provide you with reasonable treatment options. I welcome you to contact my office for an appointment to discuss all of your musculoskeletal issues.
