Care Philosophy
As a diagnostic and interventional radiologist, I use imaging techniques to diagnose illness and perform image-guided procedures in the musculoskeletal system. I work hand-in-hand with orthopedists, rheumatologists, pain management specialists, and other colleagues to provide assistance in understanding and relating imaging findings to patients.
