Diplomate of American Board of Podiatric Surgeons
I have a simple professional philosophy – I advise and treat my patients the same way that I advise and treat my own family. It’s my commitment to provide you with all the information and facts about your condition and its successful treatment. I’m privileged to take on the toughest cases of non-healing wounds and help patients preserve their lifestyle by avoiding amputation. If surgery is the only option, I provide the latest techniques and the best care and rehabilitation available today.
