David believes that patient education is paramount to provide patients with a clearer understanding of their own condition. This approach bolsters patient engagement by providing them with a better understanding of their own medical condition, enabling patients to make more informed decisions regarding their own medical treatment. This concept encourages a more positive state of physical and mental wellness, resulting in better overall treatment outcomes. Enthusiastic about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of multiple foot disorders, resulting from injury or disease I implement the necessary skills to treat conditions impacting on people’s everyday quality of life; whilst developing effective patient care pathways.
