Clinical Interest for Patients
I have expertise in clinical pain management techniques, including: back pain, sciatica, headaches, joint pain, shoulder pain, Complex Regional Pain Syndromes, myofascial pain, neck pain, cancer-related pain, and neuropathy. My interventional pain techniques include: Lumbar and cervical epidural steroid injections, nerve root blocks, and lumbar and cervical facet blocks, joint injections (Hips, Knees, Shoulders, Carpal Tunnel).
I was drawn into pain management because I like the challenge of discovering a patient’s underlying pain condition and being able to help them overcome it. I have a great deal of compassion for my patient’s pain experience - how their pain began, why they have it, and how it affects their life, their work, and their family. My communication is open, friendly, and personalized. Patients have told me they feel comfortable asking me questions without feeling embarrassed or intimidated. My goal is to provide quality care to each patient. I want my patients to be assured that they have come to the right place to feel better.

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
Being dual board certified in both Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine was a critical part of my pursuit to be the most effective pain management interventionalist my patients need. They are always comforted in knowing that I perform my pain management techniques with minimal complications, or side effects. I pride myself on having exceptional patient-relation skills, calming patients who are stressed, and never compromising my ethics in patient care.
