About

Bio

The goal of my practice is to provide the best foot and ankle care for my patients in a friendly, respectful and non-intimidating environment. My areas of expertise include trauma, sports injuries, foot and ankle arthritis, treatment of adult and pediatric flat foot, and diabetic related disorders. Keeping my patients healthy and active on their feet are my top priorities.

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.
