Profile
ABOUT ME

I strive to take care of my patients with the same compassion and attentiveness that I give my family members. I believe in providing evidence-based, comprehensive, hands-on care to individual patients, families, teams, and our community. I enjoy taking care of patients of all ages and athletes of all ability levels. I strongly believe in a team-based approach to care and emphasize lifestyle (particularly exercise and nutrition) to promote wellness and to prevent and manage chronic disease. In addition to clinical duties at CFPSM, I am the head medical physician of the Carolina Hurricanes and USA Baseball, and a team physician at Cary High School. I also have particular interest in evaluation and management of sports-related concussions and am the Medical Director of Carolina Sports Concussion Clinic. I am a native of Alamosa, CO. North Carolina has been my home for the last 15 years. My wife, Carie Bloom, MD is a pediatrician. We love spending time with our three children.
