“Having grown up in rural Idaho, my first exposure to a physician was someone who had to be prepared to deal with a variety of medical conditions as access to a specialist was limited. As I have gone through my medical training, I have held on to the idea that a physician should be able to help a variety of people. Whether it be a life threatening condition or a minor injury, my passion involves getting people back to their goal activity level. From the potato farmer to the elite level athlete, my patients can expect a comprehensive approach to their care and access to a wide variety of treatment plans.”

“I believe that every patient is an individual with a unique set of symptoms, goals and concerns. Careful communication and attention to detail are essential at every visit. My treatment plans include focused time for patient education, personalized therapy, and when necessary, the latest and least invasive surgical techniques. I want my patients to feel engaged as the central component of the team as we work together to restore or improve upon their function.”
