Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a native of Kansas City, Missouri, and love providing care for the entire family. I prefer a hands-on approach, using evidence-based medicine guidelines to deliver care to my patients. I provide primary and preventive care for adults and pediatric patients, chronic disease management, primary care sports medicine, nonoperative musculoskeletal care for all ages, concussion management, and simple fracture management. In addition to being one of the founders of Carolina Family Practice & Sports Medicine in Cary, I'm also the co-team physician for Athens Drive High School in Raleigh and also the assistant physician for the Carolina Hurricanes and the Carolina Ballet. I sit on the medical advisory board for SunTech Medical of Morrisville, North Carolina. I'm married to Tricia Gavankar and have a daughter, Marysa. I enjoy spending time with my family and am interested in art, music, swimming, and running.
