SUMMARY OF I have always believed that constant differentiation in a competitive market is the best
SKILLS: way to ensure success and stay at the top. As a result, I wear many hats professionally.
As a leading Interventional Pain Management Physician, I am recognized as a
national key opinion leader. I incorporate strong diagnostic, management, and
procedural skills and have successfully treated patients that have failed treatments
from major universities and hospitals.
As the CEO and Medical Director of my medical practice, my business model is
built on a distinct reputation for excellence, proficiencies, and ethics. I created and
branded a successful practice in one of the most competitive areas in the US. I
frequently lecture about the model of proper pain management nationally.
As an educator and researcher, I have been a part of landmark publications, one of
which has been on the cover of Lancet Oncology. I am constantly thinking of ways to
improve patient care through innovation. I educate nationally as I believe that those
who have the knowledge to make a positive change also have the responsibility to
make an impactful difference.
As a healthcare consultant, I help create and restructure major pain programs with
hospitals nationally and act as a leader on advisory boards. I integrate policies that are
at the forefront of pain management and wellness. I have worked on global policies at
the World Health Organization in Geneva and serve as an expert on fraud, waste, and
abuse reform within healthcare.
I am very passionate about my work and proper pain management, as it is the
foundation of function. I am an advocate for my patients and practice with the utmost
competency and morals. Physicians are not interchangeable parts like an appliance.
Strict standards of excellence are paramount. The key to any successful outcome is a
physician leader who has a strong education, solid skills, and unwavering integrity.
