"The education and training I've received have enabled me to help thousands of people find lasting pain relief, improved function and improved quality of life. Because I stay on top of leading-edge procedures and methods, I can offer a broader spectrum of alternatives."
"I'm always looking for more effective and timesaving surgical and nonsurgical techniques and the latest technological innovations - all with an eye toward how I can continue giving my patients the leading-edge treatment, rehabilitation and preventive care they deserve."
"Despite my extensive education, some of the most important things I've learned about being a doctor haven't come from books. Each patient is unique and has his or her own concerns. Taking the time to listen to those concerns and answer questions is a critical part of being a doctor."
