Dear Patients and Friends,

Below are some of the high-level classes and in-field workshops in which I participated earlier this Summer 2021:

- Spinal stabilization to hiking injuries
- Diagnosis and treatment of cold injury to heat injury
- Sports injuries to protocols for helicopter evacuation in the wilderness
- An advanced category of acupuncture used by our U.S. armed forces called "Battlefield Acupuncture"

In my ongoing efforts to further improve patient care and outcomes, I fulfilled these classes in southwest Utah with the Wilderness Medical Society. Acquiring twenty-five hours of Continuing Education, I was privileged to be learning from (and alongside of) some of the best wilderness doctors in the nation.

I continue to aim to provide the best care possible for you, so as to keep you enjoying your active lifestyle, now and in the years ahead. Our usual current hours include Mondays through Fridays, and we continue to accept new patients.

Happy to be helping you and your family to be your best!
