My Mission As A Pelvic, Visceral, And Ortho Doctor Of Physical Therapist Is To Help Educate Patients About Their Body (Especially The Intimate Parts!) And Provide A Safe Environment To Discuss And Treat Abdominopelvic Issues At All Ages. My Objective Is To Provide An Outlet For Patients To Seek Medical Treatment And Advise On Issues That Often Go Undiagnosed Or May Not Be Effectively Treated With Current, Widely Practiced Management Strategies.

I Have Followed In My Mother’s Footsteps As A Physical Therapist And Strive Every Day To Serve Those Not Only In Need Of Skilled Medical Treatment, But More Importantly Compassion And Understanding.

All Patients Deserve To Understand And Develop Control Over Their Body Through Physical Therapy.
In 2010, I Began Suffering From Constant Stomach Pain, Burning, And Bloating, As Well As Weight Loss, Diarrhea, Constipation, And Fatigue; All Of Which Started Affecting My Academic Performance And Ability To Play College Basketball. I Was Given An Opioid (Narcotic) Pain Reliever By The Local Md, Which Resulted In A Miserable Hospital Stay For Severe Constipation (1 Week).

I Was Then Subject To Numerous Invasive Exams (One That Involved A Balloon Being Filled While Inside My Rectum, Eek!). I Was Then Told By A Doctor (Who Was In And Out Of The Room In 2 Minutes) That I Had Crohn’s Disease. Of Course, I Had No Idea What That Meant! I Was Scared And Totally New To The World Of Chronic Bodily Pain And Discomfort.
