"I have a strong philosophy of engaging my patients in their own care. I feel it is imperative to educate my patients on their specific problems, how this affects their function and symptoms, as well as how a formulated treatment plan ties into this process. I believe that an educated patient is more prone to take an active role in their care and is more likely to improve as they understand the complexity of certain problems."
