Andrew Minkley, MD

As a physiatrist, I am focused on restoring function and working creatively with people across the spectrum of ability to help them achieve their goals. My philosophy is to meet my patients where they are and to use education on diagnosis and recovery as a way to empower them to maximize activity and quality of life. I believe that movement is medicine, and that we all need a little help sometimes to feel like ourselves and return to healthy and pain-free activity.
