My main priority as a health care practitioner is to equip patients with the tools they need to make well-informed decisions about their care. I utilize a patient-centered approach, meaning I look at many factors beyond your immediate injury or condition. The individual wants and needs of each patient are vital to consider when determining a course of treatment. While surgery is beneficial in some situations, I believe in first exhausting conservative care to restore as much movement and function possible with the least amount of risk. It is important to me that patients understand their options and are ultimately comfortable with their treatment plans.
I am originally from Long Island, New York. In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my two dogs, listening to live music, snowboarding, and spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy traveling and learning about other cultures.
