About

Bio

I am a board certified pain management specialist. My practice is focused on improving quality of life and physical functioning by reducing pain in selected, appropriate patients. Take comfort in my care. I utilize a multidisciplinary approach combining neuromodulatory medications and interventional procedures. I address a strong lifestyle modification approach using evidence based nutrition and exercise modalities.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
