We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and thank you for choosing our medical practice. Our expertise is helping patients suffering from bone and muscle conditions or injuries find relief. We look forward to meeting you, and to providing exceptional care.
The more we know about your condition and symptoms, the better care we can provide. Your physician is an expert on medical care. You are the expert on yourself.
Many people achieve more satisfaction with their health care if they can share the responsibility with their health professionals. While your physician is an expert on medical care, you are the expert on yourself. Often there can be more than one option for diagnosing or treating a condition. By acting as a partner with your doctor, you can help choose the option that best fits your values, beliefs, and lifestyle. This can make you feel more confident about carrying out the treatment you have chosen. Keeping in mind, being prepared for your visit will help you get the most out of your appointment:
