CLINICAL BACKGROUND AND MY APPROACH TO CARE

I take a great deal of pride in being open and honest with my patients. Allowing the patient and family to have all questions answered prior to undergoing a surgery is of great importance to me. Although we are able to help many patients improve their quality of life after recovering from spine surgery, it is vital that the patient understand the inherent risks and benefits of an operation. I want to ensure that the patient and his / her family is comfortable moving forward with the proposed plan well in advance before surgery is definitively decided upon. As you will come to know, I am a very reachable physician. If there is ever a question or concern you or a family member has prior to surgery, I will be sure to set aside ample time to put you at ease. I look forward to meeting you in person!
