I have always been passionate about keeping people active. I take care of patients of all ages and from all walks of life, each with a different goal or activity that they want to restart. It's a privilege to help injured and hurting patients return to the things they like to do.
My training in Family Medicine and Primary Care Sports Medicine has given me expert knowledge in non-operative orthopedics, joint and musculoskeletal injections, stress fractures, fracture care, pediatric sports medicine, concussion management, and sports physicals for athletes of all levels.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you become active again.
