I believe that everyone, regardless of age or experience, is an athlete in life. As a physician it is my great pleasure to learn about my patients’ personal goals in order to develop a customized treatment plan in order to help them stay active and healthy – whether it is being an elite athlete or to pick up a grandchild.

"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!"
