Philosophy: I believe in a collaborative approach to the orthotist patient relationship. I do not believe that there is one single right approach to medical care. I feel that it is important to come up with a plan and approach which is medically appropriate. This can only be achieved through communication, trust, and honesty which I feel is the cornerstone to any successful orthotist patient relationship.
Bio: After several years working for two chiropractors supervising functional rehabilitation, I didn't feel as though I was fully "giving back" to the patient so I started working for an O&P company. It was here that I learned all aspects of adult and pediatric bracing, as well as finding my passion for patient care. This early career work and now for Boston Orthotics and Prosthetics has truly fulfilled me and enables me to "give back" to the patient.
When not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter. I'm an avid Pittsburgh sports fan, Sundays in the fall are typically spent cheering the Steelers to victory. I enjoy being outdoors either riding my mountain bike or spending time in the woods in my tree stand.
