Team Physician

Steven Albrechta, MD 

Sports Medicine Physician 

Steven Albrechta, MD provides evidence-based, individualized care and takes the time to get to know each of his patients and their unique conditions. Dr. Albrechta believes that educating individuals on their course of treatment and building confidence in the patient-physician relationship leads to the best outcomes. Because he has experienced several injuries throughout his own sports career, he is able to relate to what his patients are going through.  He loves seeing people improve and return to the activities that they love.
