Our office motto is, "Compassionate Comprehensive Care with Fiscal Responsibility." We have each been patients and have sometimes have felt like just a number. Our office strives to provide a level of care that will meet the goals of the patient. Each patient, even two who have the same condition, will require unique therapies designed to meet their desires and needs. We have a full spectrum of diagnostic equipment (X Ray, MRI, and ultrasound) and therapeutic options (orthotics, ingrown nail care, surgery, sports medicine and etc.) so we can treat the patient and not simply the disorder. As a member of a large Orthopedic group we can offer fully integrated care for other joints, muscles, etc. of the body.
I did not always want to be a doctor. I began my college years on a vocal music scholarship. However, a biology professor introduced me to the excitement which the study of human biology. I still stand in awe its function. It is extraordinary. While I have been in my practice for over 20 years, I love to continue to learn, new treatment, new research, etc. I have a busy life outside of the office. My wife is a Registered Nurse and we have four wonderful children. We run, water ski and bike together.
