"I chose pain management to help my patients live the best life they possibly can. Pain can be debilitating and effects people not only physically but mentally and emotionally. Having helped patients for many years with post-surgical pain, I felt an obligation to apply my knowledge to help people suffering from chronic pain. I vow to provide the most advanced and innovative techniques to treat not only the body but also the mind. In this way patients can live their best life. I want to help patients better their lives and have the opportunity to be a part of their improvement journey."
