From the Doctor:
My philosophy of care is to first evaluate the patient by listening, then examining the area that is hurting and finally I explain their diagnosis and make sure that they understand the next steps. I approach my patients care with a conservative approach, exhausting all treatments such as rehabilitation and pain management, before finally deciding on surgery.
I have been practicing orthopedic medicine for more than 27 years. I’ve lived in Jacksonville for more than 14 years and am happy to call it home.
