Michael Dohm

Assistant Professor


I follow the philosophy of Dr. Francis W. Peabody who wrote in 1927 that “the secret of the care of the patient is caring for the patient.” I work with patients in a process of shared decision-making in which we look together at the best available evidence to come to an informed preference for musculoskeletal care. I believe it is important to follow the outcome of each patient and the end-result of that decision-making to deliver best practice.
