Clinical Interests: David takes a multifaceted, individualized approach to patient care with a strong focus on education, manual therapy and functional training. He became interested in a career in physical therapy through his own experience as a patient:
“The therapists that treated me always took the time to listen carefully to my problems and explain my condition in terms that I could understand. They educated and motivated me in ways that I could help myself to relieve pain and restore function. My sincere hope is that every patient that I have the pleasure to work with has the same positive experience in rehab that I did.”
