Biography & Education

I believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to health and illness. Treatment of a person should involve education, traditional and complementary medical approaches and an emphasis on return to activity and prevention of recurrent injury. I believe in empowering people to take charge of their own well-being by helping them be aware of how health involves not just an understanding of their medical diagnoses, but an understanding of how their conditions can influence and are influenced by their mental health and interpersonal relationships.

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.

I was not stressed to me how serious this problem is. It seemed like something very casual, common, and manageable.
