As a physiatrist with osteopathic training, I use a hands-on approach to help diagnose and treat musculoskeletal ailments. Growing up playing tennis and soccer, I have seen the benefits of an active lifestyle which can unfortunately involve injuries. My goal is to help each patient understand their injuries and conditions and partner with them to develop individualized treatment plans that help them return to their favorite activities and hobbies.

"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!"
