“My goal as a Physician Assistant is to work with the LOC Spine Team to develop comprehensive education and treatment covering all aspects of spine care. I believe patients should be actively involved in decisions and take ownership of their care. By doing so, they will better achieve a fundamental change in their lives and the best possible outcome.”
