Patient Care Philosophy

I have found over two-and-one-half decades that pain management is most successful if the provider and patient work together, each participating actively in care. The focus of my treatments is improvement of function, or in lay terms, being better able to do the things that are important to each patient.

Personal Interests

Clinical Interests

Myofascial pain; general assessment; and medication management.

Research Interests

Outcomes research; patient/provider expectations and satisfaction; and long-term opioid use.
