Philosophy

I believe that every patient I see is unique.  I believe that personalized approach is essential when treating all patients.  As a caring and compassionate physician, I am dedicated to getting to know all my patients as human beings more than just their pain symptoms.  I believe in the holistic/humanistic approach to medicine.  I will do whatever I can to improve my patients' functionality and quality of life.
