Kelly Loraine Dauer Pham, MD

"I was trained with the ideal of cura personalis, which means care of the whole person. I believe that rehabilitation truly illustrates this value in the multidisciplinary care that we provide to our patients. My goal in caring for the whole person with disabilities is to improve overall functioning and by doing so improve their quality of life."
