Dr. Elena feels strongly that the relationship between the doctor and each patient is unique and confidential. She encourages patients to ask questions about their condition and treatment. Further, Dr. Elena encourages each patient to participate fully in their recovery, during the course of treatment and beyond, so that each patient is more able to lead a healthier and richer life.

With this in mind, Dr. Elena instructs each patient in a complete spinal rehabilitation program so that after the pain is gone, the spine may be corrected, stabilized, and strengthened so that the pain does not come back!

In the event that additional care is indicated, Dr. Elena will refer you to the health care specialists. Among these are specialists in physical medicine, internal medicine, Ob/GYN, gastroenterology, neurology, orthopedics, homeopathy, massage therapy and many other fields. If medication is needed for your pain, or other forms of treatment are required, Dr. Elena will discuss a consultation with your medical doctor.
