Primary Care Sports Medicine

Philosophy

We emphasize a team approach to sports medicine. Primary care physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, physical therapists, trainers, and others work together, allowing us to utilize available resources and maximize benefits when treating athletes. We believe this is the best way to approach sports medicine.
