Philosophy of Care 

"I am an avid sports enthusiast who recognizes the quality of life that activity brings to my patients. In addition to running marathons and triathlons, I played football and lacrosse and have ranked winning three lacrosse National Championships at Princeton as one of the integral experiences of my education. While acknowledging all the physical and emotional benefits of exercise, I also understand the plain fun of sports.

"I maintain a collaborative philosophy of care with my patients.  I work with my patients to assess the advantages and disadvantages of how best to approach treatment and we work together to achieve a common goal. I believe time spent understanding the injury, discussing options and making a fully informed decision with the patient is necessary to optimize the healing process."
