Patient Care Philosophy

In every case, it is essential to learn all of the details that could affect an individual patient's bones.  I then use medical knowledge to design the best treatment plan.

It is important for patients to understand the benefits of activity, nutrition and medications. I spend time educating patients and answering their questions because medical care must be a partnership between physician and patient.
