A Word From Kelly Armstrong, MD

I work every day to help make the lives of patients with disabilities easier. My patients inspire me on a regular basis and make my work incredibly enjoyable. One of the hardest things to accomplish as a doctor is to communicate with patients about their disability on their terms. I love being able to do this and form wonderful relationships with my patients through their own education. As part of this site, I hope to help make your understanding of disabling conditions better. Fear and anxiety in medicine are usually because of not completely understanding what's wrong. Together, we'll work to remedy that problem!
