Dr. Frederick Song

Specializing in Sports Medicine, Shoulders & Knees

"We all live high-paced, stressful lives, and sports are a huge release for people. Being active makes our lives better. If you tell someone, they can't do something for some reason, that's so traumatic. We take that seriously; we truly want people to get back to doing what they love."
Dr. Song
