Adult and Pediatric Foot and Ankle
Practice Philosophy: A patient's needs should be met through a detailed evaluation and treatment plan that is designed to help him or her achieve and maintain an active lifestyle while minimizing pain. Although surgery is often needed, many orthopedic injuries can be treated without surgery. I will use my knowledge and training to provide leading-edge medical care with traditional treatment methods.
