As physiatrists and rehabilitation providers, our approach to patient care is always focused on establishing positive doctor-patient relationships that lead to enhanced function and quality of life. Getting people back to a healthy lifestyle that includes work and play is important to us. Whether you perform heavy physical work or sit at the head of the boardroom table, we will work together with you to get you “back in the game”. Once your pain is appropriately treated, we will help you establish a level of fitness that gets you back to the things that you enjoy most such as traveling, playing sports competitively or recreationally or playing with your children or grandchildren. Our treatment team is committed to providing the highest level of care and service to our patients.

The ultimate goal of treatment is to reduce or alleviate pain through education, hands on therapies, appropriate injection therapies using cutting edge technologies, coordinated rehabilitation and exercise therapies, while avoiding the use of potentially addictive medications. We achieve this by combining the most up to date traditional and alternative therapies to achieve maximal outcomes.
