My commitment to podiatric medicine is to provide the best possible care considering the patient need and desire by maintaining honesty and integrity through care and compassion. I want to build long-term relationships with my patients and their families by earning their respect and trust.
Podiatry is a field of medicine that is devoted to the study and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, knee, and hip (collectively known as the lower extremity).
As a doctor of podiatric medicine, I aim to improve the overall health and well-being of patients by focusing on preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions associated with the foot and ankle, specifically.
