WHO WE ARE
Patient Centered Care
While I was in chiropractic school, a common theme we were taught was that it was necessary for patients to follow extensive care plans in order for the doctor to be successful. Now that I am in practice, I just want my patients' ailments resolved. I am deeply passionate about finding the root cause of my patients' pain so that we can see results quickly and reduce the need for repeat visits.
