“I know that when you come to see me, you have a problem that needs to be solved. Often it is more than just pain or injury. Self-care, return to work, return to sport and other issues can also be a concern. In addition to providing you with orthopedic expertise in your diagnosis and treatment, I will address your other valid concerns. I will work to help you understand your pain and injury and will involve you in the choices of treatment that will work best for you. I want you to leave my office with an appropriate plan in place and already feeling better.”
