My approach reflects my values
Craftsmanship: impeccable attention to detail. As my patient, your successful outcome is my work of art.
Innovation: Never satisfied with the status quo, if there's a better way to help somebody, I will be the first to adopt it
Holistic Approach: the body is not just one system but a complex interaction of many systems and environments and should be treated as such.
Focus on Longevity: while most PTs are content to have you leave and feel better for a few days or week, I'm not happy unless i can call you randomly a year from now and you're still doing great after your PT has been complete.
Evidence-Informed Care: as an avid reader of research, I'm constantly integrating new information and treatments into my practice.
Dedication: Unlike many PTs, I don't want to just get you to 80% better. I want to get you better than you were before an injury.
