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.
