John is an expert in the management of spinal dysfunctions and orthopedic problems of the extremities. “My 36 years of experience treating patients with musculoskeletal problems has taught me that listening to the patient’s concerns is one of the key elements to providing a successful outcome,” explains John. “I listen actively, so that I understand the problem from the patient’s perspective. Then, using my advanced training and their input, I can accurately assess the extent of the injury and what needs to be done to correct it.”
