"I believe in the importance of a warm welcome to each new patient who walks in the door. Having an injury that interferes with the activities that one loves can be frustrating, and even frightening. My goal is to improve their range of motion, and lessen their pain in the most effective manner possible. I have served as the physician for several sports teams, and really enjoy working with teenagers and young adults."
Dr. Frush treats athletes at all levels and at every age: from the professional level with all four major sports, to the collegiate, high school, middle school levels, and also recreational athletes and weekend warriors. Regardless of age or ability, all patients are treated with same high level of assessment and treatment. It is a team oriented coordinated approach to patient care, and the patient is educated along the way so that they can make informed decisions.
The history-taking is very in depth, including an assessment of the mechanisms of injury, prior sports played, remote injuries, desired activity levels, and functional goals. Patients will find that the physical examination is extremely thorough as well. We don't just focus on the injured segment, as we want to determine if there are secondary problems related to the current issue.
When he is not treating patients, he spends time with his family and serves as a team physician with the Pistons, Madonna University, and Hartland High school. Sports are a very big part of his non-work life as well. As a former multi-sport athlete, Dr. Frush encourages sports participation for his four sons who play football, basketball, and baseball.
