Philosophy of Care
I have more than 27 years of experience treating complex foot and ankle concerns, both conservatively and surgically. Having been a patient myself, I personally understand how frustrating, and at times, how debilitating foot and/or ankle pain can be. Each patient is unique and requires individualized care to best address their specific concerns. Treatment interventions are "evidence-based," meaning the use of scientific, peer-reviewed current musculoskeletal research is commonly applied to assist in the selection of the best course of care.
I care for the entire population Ė newborns, children, adults, elderly, weekend warriors, elite athletes, etc. I try my best to be a good listener, which is essential in creating and maintaining high quality physician-patient relationships. My patient satisfaction scores in independent surveys are consistently high. I strongly advocate that patients, and their family members, be actively involved in their care and rehabilitation.
Iím constantly updating my skills by participating in quality continuing medical education. I find volunteering for medical missions overseas to be very rewarding. Iím available by phone and email through My Health Online for my patients.
