Our goal is always to provide the highest level of friendly care for all patients. Every patient’s complaint or pain is “real” and is, therefore addressed seriously. Each patient is treated as an individual, and as I would a member of my own family.
I practice conservatively, and as such will use the most non-invasive, least painful treatment modality first whenever possible.
I believe in educating every patient about his or her condition and all possible treatment considerations.
Whenever possible I like to keep the patient’s activity level as normal as possible.
A detailed history and physical exam including a discussion of the relationships of symptoms to various activities and, unfortunately, the reproduction of the pain is the most powerful diagnostic tool.
Many individuals with no symptoms may have abnormal laboratory results, and similarly many symptomatic patients may have normal results. Therefore test results must always be viewed in proper perspective.
