Philosophy of Care
Some conditions have simple, straightforward treatments while other have multiple treatment options that require an understanding of the risks and benefits of each treatment. That's why I work really hard to make sure you understand exactly what's wrong with your shoulder and thoroughly understand the treatment plan we discussed.
I make sure you understand your options before offering my advice about which option to choose. I like to think patients appreciate my care because I make them feel confident that they are getting the best treatment that will help them get back to their normal activities.
