I am a Salt Lake City-area doctor providing internal medicine and sports medicine. Primary Care Sports Medicine has been a professional interest of mine since 1993. Having spent prior years in general Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine, I wanted to direct my skill towards keeping patients fit, healthy and free of the problems that often come from an active and athletic lifestyle. I have worked with Salt Lake Athletic Medicine, The Orthopedic Specialty Group, Olympic Venue Medical Officer, and as a team and event physician for the U.S. Speedskating team.
My clinical practice is at the Intermountain Health and Fitness Institute on the LDS Hospital campus in Salt Lake City. I am the Medical Director for the Institute and have provided consultation to patients here since 1999. I maintain a consultative practice to assist other physicians with their patients and their needs in risk factor prevention, and management and in sports performance and injury care. I have a limited group of executive and active adult patients in my primary care practice.
Working with a multi-disciplinary healthcare team including doctors, physical therapists, exercise physiologists and dieticians, this practice offers a gateway to wellness for patients seeking prevention, performance improvement and disease management services. Key to our treatment plan are resources provided to the patient to take charge of their own health. These include our unique health risk appraisals and our book, "Maintaining the Miracle - an Owner's Manual for the Human Body" (www.maintainingthemiracle.com).
I have been an Olympic physician and team physician over the years. My current sports medicine practice is with Intermountain Sports Medicine Specialty Group on the LDS Hospital campus. I enjoy personal lifetime sports of golf, cycling and hiking. I also enjoy helping others achieve their lifetime activity and performance goals.
