BiographyMy professional time is devoted primarily to direct care of patients with chronic pain. My areas of interest include chronic spine pain, neuropathic pain, myofascial pain and rehabilitation approaches to treatment of chronic pain.

I am also involved in the direct education of pain medicine fellows where I emphasize musculoskeletal evaluation and rehabilitation approaches in management of patients with chronic pain.
