The Sharp Experience

I am passionate about pain management and enjoy making a difference in patients' lives.



Pain sensation is critical to any living thing to protect it from harm; unfortuately, sometimes it extends beyond its meaningful usefulness and negatively impacts a person's quality of life.

Physicians are trained to tackle this problem. However, in this era of superspecialization, one can loose track as to why a patient walks into our office, pain being the chief complaint.

A passionate approach to pain management and the privilege of making a difference in someone's life define the principle of my practice and motive of my profession.
