Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
You will be in good hands because I love what I do. My priority is figure out the most effective treatment option for the fastest results. As one of 2 sports specialist chiropractors (the other is Dr. Kissel in our office) in Burlington and almost 10 years clinical experience I have a unique perspective on best patient care.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
Conditions of the spine (back pain, neck pain, headaches) sports injuries (including concussion rehabilitation) muscle, tendon and joint injuries/conditions
What are you proud of in your practice?
We (Dr. Kissel and I) opened our practice in 2009 with just 2 tables and a curtain in an industrial location...no bells, no whistles, just a dream to be the go to sports injury clinic in Burlington with a trusted reputation for effective results. We have grown every year since 2009 based on that reputation, which we strive to improve with each and every patient we see.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
I enjoy treating patients seeking preventative approaches to their health. Helping eliminate pain and rehabilitating injuries can be highly satisfying, but helping patients lead a proactive lifestyle is far more rewarding.
