Patient Care Philosophy

I seek to partner with my patients to help them stay healthy and active and achieve their competitive goals -- from a run around Green Lake to competing in the Olympics.

As a primary care sports physician, I employ non-surgical interventions and rehabilitation to overcome and prevent injuries, returning athletes of all abilities to peak form. When the need for surgery arises, I feel fortunate to partner with some of the best orthopaedic surgeons in the country.
