Patient Care Philosophy

As a sports medicine physician, he concentrates his efforts at helping return the injured athlete at all levels back to their active lifestyle. “I see the recovery process as a team sport with key players including the patient, the athletic trainers, physical therapists, as well as the physician.  With this in mind, we develop a game plan that takes into account, the diagnosis, treatment options and the rehabilitation process so that the doctor and patient are aligned in their strategy to conquering the injury and getting back on the field."
