Get To Know Your Doctor
Why did you become a physiatrist?
One of my relatives had an illness when I was younger, and I think that was what sparked my interest in helping people to overcome health problems. I’m fascinated by chronic pain and I really enjoy working directly with patients to help them overcome their pain and regain function.
What is your favorite part of your job?
It feels great when I’m able to help my patients make real, recognizable progress in improving their physical function and pain levels. It’s always really rewarding when I know that I’ve helped someone enjoy their life more.
What’s something you would like people to know about pelvic health?
Treating pelvic pain isn’t just about addressing the physical symptoms and musculoskeletal issues, it’s about addressing all aspects of lifestyle and health that could be contributing. That means factoring in things like diet, exercise, and any underlying issues in the patient’s medical history that may be impacting their experience of pelvic pain.
