Patient Care Philosophy

I enjoy working with osteoporosis and rheumatology patients and find it very satisfying to educate, and empower people about their disease state, self-care activities and health maintenance. For patients with osteoporosis my goal is to prevent fractures and help maintain patient's ability ro care for themselves. It is satisfying to care for patients over many years, and to know you have contributed to their health.
