Patient Care Philosophy

In my practice, I strive to create an environment of compassion and empathy in what can often be a difficult time after traumatic injury or neurological diagnosis. I understand the importance of working with my patients and their families in a collaborative manner in order to build a treatment plan well-suited to their individual needs.
