My Approach to Care
"I approach care with both my patients and their families in mind, and I value the relationships that I'm able to develop with them. I strive to provide care that is optimized for each patient's unique needs and top-of-the-line from an orthopedic standpoint. I'm happy to work with families to overcome barriers to care, and open to trying alternative medicine strategies to complement care at a patient's request. I'm fortunate at Gillette to work every day with such a talented, dedicated group of care providers. I utilize our multidisciplinary setting to ensure that care for all patients is as comprehensive as possible."
