I appreciate that pain is a very individual and subjective experience and is best managed through a tailored treatment plan using a multidisciplinary approach. I’m committed to supporting my patients physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I also believe through health education patients can be empowered to make informed decisions and better manage their health.
