“As an NCAA All-American and multi-sport athlete myself, I have sustained many acute and chronic injuries over the years… I know what it’s like to miss the sport you love, be overwhelmed with treatment options, and be under pressure to get it right. Whether you are a professional athlete trying to get off of injured reserve, or … you just want to be able to walk your dog without that painful knee giving out on you, as your sports medicine physician, I am honored to be entrusted with your care. I will work with you to… achieve all of your goals. I look forward to …getting you back on top of your game as fast and as safely as possible.”
