I believe that everyone, regardless of age or experience, is an athlete in life. As a physician it is my great pleasure to learn about my patients’ personal goals in order to develop a customized treatment plan in order to help them stay active and healthy – whether it is being an elite athlete or to pick up a grandchild.
