Patient Care Philosophy

My role in the health care team is centered on treatments to improve a person’s functional capacity after a disabling injury or disease, to allow meaningful participation in life. I have a deep respect for my patients’ autonomy in their health care decisions and strive to empower them with strategies to support effective self-management of complex and chronic disabling conditions. I enjoy learning each patient’s perspective and life circumstances, which help me provide individualized care. I believe in health promotion and active partnership with my patients and their care team to maintain the best possible health across their lifespan.
