About

Bio

I specialize in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. The focus of my practice is managing the pain of patients with joint conditions (shoulder, hips, knees, etc.) or neck/back pain. We also provide care for patients who require more extensive rehabilitation, such as those who have had strokes or are debilitated from long hospital stays. To learn more about us visit our website at http://www.pain-rehab.com or to learn more about our specialty, also known as physiatry, visit http://www.aapmr.org.
