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.

We are here for you at DSSP. We continue to offer Telehealth visits in addition to in-office appointments for evaluation and management of your pain complaints. In accordance with the new CDC guidelines regarding indoor mask use being optional based on the COVID-19 community level in Maricopa, it is now optional to wear a mask at DSSP. If you are sick, at-risk, or live with an at-risk individual, we encourage you to wear a mask. Additionally, if any patient prefers their provider to wear a mask, we will gladly continue wearing our masks during your in-person appointment.
