Our Mission

PCSM’s mission is simple: Developing lasting friendships through excellent care. Our philosophy is not only to treat the ailment but we address the root cause of injuries to prevent future problems. Our doctors are armed with knowledge in various aspects of internal medicine and pediatrics that can be applied to the broad field of sports medicine. Learn more about our office and our doctors.

The environment of Primary Care Sports Medicine is unlike most doctors’ offices. The PCSM physicians strive to relate to every patient they treat. The entire PCSM team believes that an integral part of care is confidence, trust, and a clear understanding of what is happening inside of each patient’s body. All former athletes, Dr. Patterson, and Dr. Scott know the value of active lifestyles and the importance of effective treatment and recovery. After one visit, our patients become a member of the Primary Care Sports Medicine Family.
