Seattle Top Doctor 2020 Badge

It is very rewarding to see the quality of a patient’s life significantly improve with proper diagnosis and treatment of spinal conditions. My approach to treating the spine is to start with the most conservative modalities. I spend considerable time listening to and examining my patients to accurately determine the cause of their symptoms. When surgery is indicated, I explain the procedure to my patients and make sure they feel comfortable throughout the process. I am devoted to educating my patients about their spine so they can make more informed decisions.

I have strong moral and ethical character. I take great pride in my work and accept no less than perfection. I stay current with the latest advances in treatment options in order to provide my patients with the highest level of care. I strive to provide my patients with exceptional care, and I am honored to have the opportunity to improve their quality of life.
