Biography

Treatment Philosophy

Treating the whole person and restoring him or her to a state of wellness – physically, mentally, vocationally, spiritually and within the family system.  I believe that this almost always requires a multimodal approach to pain.

Professional Journey

My mother and grandmother were registered nurses and I was interested in medicine and science at a very early age.  When I was in college I traveled to Nicaragua and witnessed the total lack of medical care.  This confirmed for me my choice to pursue a career in medicine and public health.
