The real secret to high quality orthopedic care

"I believe experience is the most important aspect in our field.  Each of our physicians has successfully completed outstanding education programs.  But the real secret to delivering high-quality patient care is experience and compassion.  We all take the time to understand our patients and their unique needs."

Maintaining ongoing communication with colleagues

"My membership in professional organizations provides me with vital interaction with my peers.  The exchange of information has been beneficial to both my patients and me.  But I'm also aware that information I share with a colleague, or my patient, may help someone I'll never meet.  That gives me great satisfaction."

Doing the best possible job for every patient

"One of my goals is to match each patient with the right specialist or team within our group.  Because each of us brings unique strengths and experiences, we often achieve the best possible outcome when we work together.  My colleagues and I take pride in the fact that our patients are very pleased with the care they receive.  They continue to refer family members, friends and coworkers to us.  It's one of the things I find most gratifying about my profession and our practice."
