Tasso Papagiannopoulos, MD

I deeply believe that living an active and balanced life is essential for a happy and healthy existence. Unfortunately, at times, the body can face injury which can keep us from participating in the activities that we love. As a physician specializing in musculoskeletal medicine, it is my goal to work with each patient and create a comprehensive and personalized plan to return them to the life they want to live.
