He primarily works with Dr. Thompson and assists in surgery provides hospital care for inpatients and has a full clinic schedule. He sees the whole spectrum of patients in the clinic including new evaluations, follow-up visits, pre-op or post-op visits, and orders and interprets diagnostic imaging like MRIs and X-rays.

I believe that inviting patients to participate in their medical care is crucial to the successful treatment of any medical condition. Having surgery, let alone spine surgery, can be a daunting experience and my goal is to help patients feel as comfortable as possible, make sure their concerns and questions are heard and answered, and do my best to ensure they are receiving excellent care. A mentor once told me, "You never regret going the extra mile for your patients; only when you could have, and did not." I really believe this is true.
