I’ve worked with Eastside for 16 years as a prosthetist and orthotist. I studied prosthetics and orthotics in Los Angeles and Chicago. Being an amputee myself I have a good rapport with and empathy for all of my prosthetic and orthotic patients. My patients always come first and I do whatever I can to improve their lives.
Our work at Eastside is often challenging but always rewarding and I’m always up for whatever challenge I’m presented with. Over the more than 40 years of living as an amputee and my time as a practitioner I have learned how to share my skills with new patients who are just learning how to continue their lives with their own challenges. And along the way I’ve managed to discover a lot about myself as well.
