A sports medicine specialist is a physician who is trained to diagnose and treat injuries and conditions caused by participation in athletic activities.
These doctors are generally employed by professional sports teams to care for the athletes who are injured. They have extensive knowledge of the types of injuries that athletes are most susceptible to, such as stress fractures, sprains, concussions, muscle cramps, ACL injuries, and shin splints.

He's a people person and a really good doctor. I wish that I'd met him earlier when I first started having health problems. I don't think that things would have gotten as bad as they did. He has been awesome and has compassion for his patients.
Does not do what they say they are going to do in a timely manner, if at all. He's seems like a nice doctor that is well educated and caring. I just wish that the time management was better. It should not take a week to do a referral, if you are going to prescribe a medicine you should not make a patient wait (and consequently suffer) over a week to get the medicine that they need. If someone calls in the morning you should call them back before 600pm, when normal people are eating supper.
I been going to Dr.Johnson since 1995 when I had my first child.Now when Dr.Murthy came to join his practice when I need an emergency appt I saw Dr.Murthy mostly in the same day or the next day. He was awesome me and my daughters have saw him and when Ci'Erica been in the hospital he has been there also, he is wonderful also he explains everything to you so you can understand it.Him and Dr.J do their best to help you anyway the can to get you better, they do the testing,the labs, and everything they need to do to help you.And Anne,Willa,Jerri,and Anne-Marie and the whole entire Team are Wonderful...

Dr. Murthy and his staff have been my primary care Doctor for the past 6 years! I have never had a Doctor and caring and passionate about the people that he cares fro. I have recommended him to all of my family and friends. Not just to Dr. Vasu Murthy but his wife and father as well. I have considered myself blessed to have found him! The awards that he has been given makes me so proud to know a man such as himself.
Nice man. Shady Business practices. I went in for a physical and got charged for diagnostic and follow up. They took the first visit off of my account because they made the mistake but would not resubmit the claim as wellness, so i had to pay for my ONE wellness allotment for the year. the last doctor that i went to for a routine physical called me with blood work so that i didn't have to come in for follow up because (what i know now) is that you have to pay for follow up. Shady Shady. My husband's doctor sends follow up info by mail to save customer's money. So be warned. He wants you $$ more than he cares about your health.
