Because it HURTS!! It is difficult to watch people struggle with pain. He tries to help people get rid of their pain or at least learn to manage and cope with it. This may involve medications, exercise, physical therapy, psychological counseling, medication management, x-ray guided procedures, or surgery. Ultimately the goal is to help the patient reach their own goals which may be playing a round of golf, cooking a full meal, riding an ATVs, watching a baseball game, or simply getting to the mailbox and back without falling down. Each patient has different needs and goals, each patient gets a personalized approach to try and achieve those goals. An amazing wife and 6 kids keep him busy. In his own spare time he enjoys a wide variety of hobbies, such as fishing, hiking, astronomy, wood and metal working are a few of his current hobbies.
