Mederic M. Hall, MD


"Sports medicine, much like the athletes we treat, is very much about a team. You need to surround yourself with good people to get your optimum patient outcome. We have phenomenal orthopedic surgeons, great athletic trainers, physical therapy, primary care sports medicine staff, and even support staff. I feel like we have an excellent team that we have put together that allows us to treat the patient and get them back as quickly and safely as we can." — Mederic M. Hall
