Philosophy of Care

My approach to patient care involves gaining a deep understanding of your unique goals and priorities, and tailoring my care to achieve control of symptoms in the ways that are most meaningful to you. I will also focus on educating you about your specific movement disorder, to empower you to gain better control of your condition. I embrace a multi-disciplinary approach to care, having each of my patients supported by a team that works together to best achieve the outcomes that matter most to you.
