Compassionate, Patient-Centered Care – We take the time to listen and consider all aspects of a patient’s needs so we can apply a wide range of tailored care.

Experience – We have helped many patients over the years successfully recover and maximize the quality of life.

Outside the Box – We are open to the use of both traditional and non-traditional approaches, such as mind-body medicine, to treat our patients.

Holistic Care – Rather than focus on a specific organ system, we address the function of the whole patient. Physiatry is about patient-centered care and maximizing each person’s level of functional independence and mobility.
