The practice is exclusively catering to traumatically injured patients who have ongoing personal injury and medical legal concerns.

In many scenarios the personal injury oriented practice may have a less than favorable connotation but in our practice environment we have an established reputation of being fair, honest and patient centered before any considerations of the medical legal concerns. This philosophy has carried on for over three decades and is a good fit for a physiatrist that wants to do quality work, change patient's lives and have unlimited potential for growth, beyond the opportunities available in the current declining health insurance climate.
