About Me

As a physician assistant with experience in both orthopedics and spine surgery, I possess a wide range of experiences to offer my patients the best care possible. From common back or neck pain to complex spinal disorders, I understand that my most crucial role is to listen attentively to my patients. Patients know their bodies better than any studies, and the key to diagnosis and treatment lies in listening to their concerns. This is particularly true in spine care, where treatment is highly nuanced, targeted, and individualized. What I find most rewarding about being a clinician is establishing genuine connections with my patients. I strive to lead by example in promoting a healthy lifestyle, which I believe significantly contributes to overall well-being. Outside of work, I engage in endurance and strength training. Despite any necessary adaptations, I firmly believe that exercise plays a crucial role in the overall health puzzle. Additionally, I enjoy baking, exploring new restaurants, and traveling with my wife.
