The art of medicine involves listening to patients in detail and fully examining them. My goal as a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist is to use these fundamental skills to help improve functionality for all ages. From the veteran golfer to the working mom and everyone else in between, individual goals vary. My focus is to help individuals live a healthy life and continue to do what they enjoy the most.

"My fellowship at Desert Spine and Sports Physicians was such a wonderful experience! I learned so much about the nuances of treating the spine and delivering quality patient care in the setting of a real-world, private practice. My mentors and colleagues not only offered their guidance, but were always open to answering all of my questions. Furthermore, the warmth and support of all of the staff made it a joy to be a part of DSSP, one big family!"
“Your staff is wonderful. From the receptionist in the front to your skilled, kind and considerate medical staff in the back. Those individuals who cared for me before, during and after the procedures … showed considerable skills and concern.”
"I have been a patient here for over a year and every time I come for an appointment I am received as a VIP. Thank you."
"OMG! You guys are awesome!! Thank you!"
