How would you describe your role at Capital Region Integrative Pain Center?
– My title is “PA” which officially stands for Physician Assistant. However, I feel that these letters also represent my role as a Patient Advocate. One of my goals is to empower patients to manage their symptoms through self care. Along with the other providers and staff at Capital Region Integrative Pain Center, I hope to be a resource to help patients discover the best combination of management strategies to fit their individual needs and symptoms.
Why did you choose Integrative Pain Management?
– I am in awe of the complexity of the human body, being comprised of the many interconnected organ systems. No organ system functions in isolation. This is why I believe in an integrative approach to health management that evaluates factors such as nutritional status, unmanaged stress, emotional health, sleep quality, exercise and ergonomics.
