“I support all athletes' desire to play their sport, but I value their long-term health the most.”

My Approach

I try very hard to tailor my care to each patient I see. Each child has a unique story, background, and family. I hope to provide care that's respectful of this diversity.

I highly value the trust that patients and their families place in me. At times, it can be hard to deliver bad news about a certain injury or problem that affects an athlete. I'm proud to be trusted by my patients to guide them through their medical care, especially during these difficult moments.

I value, respect, and support all athletes' desire to play their sport, but I value their long-term health the most. Patients and families should know that I do not shy away from difficult decisions, and I strive to help patients make choices that allow them to compete safely without jeopardizing their future health and lives.
