Prolonged pain impacts multiple aspects of a person's physical and psychosocial functioning. I believe in an interdisciplinary approach to treating chronic pain, which considers the interplay of complex physical, psychological and social factors. Treating the whole person, rather than just the symptoms, increases the likelihood of increased function and improved activities of daily living.
In 1986, I earned my M.D. from the University of Illinois, College of Medicine – Rockford. My Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency was completed through the Medical College of Wisconsin in 1990.
I am board certified by The American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, The American Board of Pain Medicine, and the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (Subspecialty of Pain Medicine). I also sit on the examination council for the American Board of Pain Medicine, which writes the certification test for pain physicians.
In August of 2004, Midwest Rehabilitation Associates opened as an independent pain management clinic of which I am one of the founders. I have been specializing in the treatment of chronic pain management for over 27 years, 24 of those years have been in the Milwaukee area.
Away from the clinic, I enjoy boating, fishing and spending time with my family.
