“I believe it is important to treat the whole person, not just the injury or the location of pain. Every patient is different and there are so many factors that influence and contribute to pain. I think it's important to educate the patient on their diagnosis or symptoms, as I find many people do not know or understand what is happening. Overall, I enjoy getting to know patients as people and making sure they can get back to their normal lifestyle.”
