His focus on improving functionality and enhancing quality of life continues to make a positive impact in the lives of his patients, helping them manage their conditions and achieve optimal musculoskeletal health.

No single test can singularly diagnose the complex array of rheumatic diseases. Instead, I believe in a comprehensive approach. This method involves a thorough evaluation that includes a patient's medical history, physical examination, and analysis of lab and imaging findings. These are the pieces of objective evidence necessary to identify and understand rheumatic conditions. By combining evidence-based medicine, the latest advancements in rheumatology, and a holistic perspective, I strive to provide comprehensive care that not only addresses the physical aspects of the disease but also promotes overall well-being."
