A Personal Note from Lauren:

I have always wanted a career in medicine, even as a little girl. I knew I wanted to specialize in orthopaedics since the first time I visited a family member who happened to work  at OSC. I was in awe of the knowledge, support, and compassion that was shown to each patient regarding their musculoskeletal health. Well here I am, many years later, and I have made that dream a reality! I am so excited to meet you & provide you with the same experience!

It is important to me to spend time with my patients…to get to know them by listening and collaborating together to create a plan of care. My goal is to foster an environment where you can feel comfortable, while together we take an active role in improving your lifestyle. Please let me know how I can help you improve your experience at OSC.
