Patient Care Philosophy
My role as a rehabilitation medicine doctor is to help people to adjust to major life-changing events and disability and to help people improve function. I believe that by actively engaging patients in their healthcare that I can help them to lead active, healthy and fulfilling lives. My primary clinical expertise is in the rehabilitation of people with amputations and those facing potential limb loss. I feel that taking care of patients during these difficult times in their lives is a privilege and I strongly believe that the patient is the most important member of a healthcare team.
