"Excellent Patient Experience"

"I've had the honor of treating patients from all across the United States and Canada. I believe in treating patients with excellent medicine, which includes advanced technology to heal your body while listening to my patients to understand their goals for a more active life with improved mobility and less pain. I recognize the importance of a client-centered medical experience, which inspires me to create strong and long-lasting bonds with each of my patients. It’s a privilege to serve Southeastern Michigan by providing quality medical attention through sound medical advice and responsible diagnoses and procedures.


In 2009, following an influenza vaccination, the left side of my face started to droop. While this condition (Bell's Palsy) isn't serious and doesn't affect any other part of my body, it is something I am often asked about. I believe the residual drooping seen in my facial muscles is a reminder to remain humble and empathetic as I consult and treat patients.

I look forward to helping you get back to living an active, fulfilling life again with a treatment that's right for you."
