Biography & Education

I believe dance, athletics, and physical activity improve the lives and minds of young people far beyond the immediate health benefits. That is why my practice is centered around listening to my patients, gathering the whole story, and trying to get to the root cause of the issue. Whether it be as simple as an acute injury or pain from improper training; or more complex pain and weakness from poor technique or a previous injury to that, or a different part of the body. I then like to work with the individual to come up with the best treatment and therapy program to get them back to their sport, performance, or activity level as quickly and as safely as possible.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.
