Practice Priorities
Patients: "I endeavor to establish a comfortable, supportive and professional relationship with patients to facilitate the diagnostic process and delivery of care. Equally important is patient education which will allow their active participation in the development of a treatment plan."

Specialty: "The full potential of my subspecialty can be realized when integrated into a multidisciplinary plan of medical and surgical practice. This being the case I work very closely with Neurological Surgery, Neurology, Rehabilitation Therapy, and other neuroscience specialties to coordinate treatments utilizing a variety of expert opinions and approaches."
