Patient Care Philosophy

It is my belief that the best way to diagnose and treat patients with complicated musculoskeletal disease is to combine a patient’s description of their symptoms with physical examination and an analysis of their laboratory and imaging data. The goal is to then introduce the most appropriate treatment regimen, including medicine and non-pharmaceutical options.
