My Mantra

The simplest solutions are generally the best. Unfortunately, medicine in general has become overcomplicated and overtreatment is common. I like to find the simplest solutions to problematic injuries, to ensure my patients are able to return to an active lifestyle as soon as possible, with no unnecessary intervention.
