“I was drawn to Osteopathic medicine because it focuses on treating people, not symptoms or diseases. While Osteopathic physicians can and do use traditional medical approaches – like prescription drugs and surgery – what sets us apart is this holistic view of the body and the individuals we care for.
“The hands-on manipulation techniques I’ve learned and refined over the years have allowed me to help so many people get out of pain and improve their health. I’ve cared for newborn babies, people in their 90s and everyone in between, often using only the best tools I have… my hands, knowledge and experience. Being able to relieve chronic pain and improve health in such a natural, patient-friendly way is extremely gratifying.”
