Pain Management Specialist | Interventional Pain Medicine

661 Goodlette Frank Road N 103 Naples FL, 34102

About

I began my career in pain medicine in1986, before pain management was an accepted specialty, and prior to any training programs. My passion to help those suffering with pain of any type has taken me to many countries both for training and care-giving. I am a commited Christian and believe we must treat the entire person; physical, emotional and spiritual. 

My treatment philosophy is to diagnose relevant sources of pain , and guide the patient to long-term solutions for each problem. I feel patients should be as motivated and invested as their physician, and challenge them to actively participate in their treatment plan.

It has been my honor to treat patients and their families for forty years.
