"As a Physiatrist, my ultimate goal is to maximize function, mobility and quality of life so that our patients can live fully with their pain well-controlled. Chronic pain is influenced by many factors from your general medical health to your job, interests & hobbies, emotional & mental well-being, and support system. That is the way I practice - by treating the patient as a whole using a multi-disciplinary approach."
