Patient Care Philosophy
I believe that patients can best participate in their own care if they understand the cause of their foot or ankle complaint as well as the purpose of treatment recommendations. My goal is to keep patients active and help them make good decisions about how they care for their foot problems. I am particularly interested in biomechanics and know that often use of orthotic devices or a changing the type of shoes that are worn makes a difference and can alleviate foot and leg pain. Other problems are recurring, requiring periodic care, physical therapy or surgery. I strive to provide patients with an understanding of their choices and then provide the care that is needed.
