Rishi Vora, DO

As a physiatrist with osteopathic training, I use a hands-on approach to help diagnose and treat musculoskeletal ailments. Growing up playing tennis and soccer, I have seen the benefits of an active lifestyle which can unfortunately involve injuries. My goal is to help each patient understand their injuries and conditions and partner with them to develop individualized treatment plans that help them return to their favorite activities and hobbies.
