When you are experiencing the effects of illness or injury, nothing is more important than finding a partner in your recovery who believes in you and wants to see you succeed. That is exactly what you will find in your Sheltering Arms physician.

We could not be more honored to lead the talented team of doctors at Sheltering Arms. We each have our own unique areas of expertise within the field of physical rehabilitation and we are all intensely passionate about caring for our patients.

As the leaders of your medical care at Sheltering Arms, our physicians are fully committed to you. We will treat you as a whole person, not a specific ache, pain or symptom, and we will work with you to identify recovery goals and develop a treatment plan to help you meet them. We are surrounded by an expert team of nurses, therapists and support staff who partner with us in this process.

With advanced certifications, extensive experience, the latest equipment and modern facilities, your treatment team at Sheltering Arms is equipped to provide the best rehabilitative care available. Moreover, you will find our dedication to you to be truly unparalleled.

Our team works hard and we strive every day to help our patients exceed their own expectations and find the power to overcome. It is our privilege to be here for you.
