Care Philosophy

As a sports medicine physician, I enjoy caring for musculoskeletal issues in patients of all ages. As an experienced pediatrician in our community, I have a special interest in the young athlete and strive to promote health and physical fitness at an early age. My philosophy has always been "exercise is medicine" and my goal is to keep my patients active and healthy throughout their lives.
