Welcome to San Diego Sports Medicine and Family Health

San Diego Sports Medicine and Family Health center started in 1980 with a vision to not only give excellent quality medical care, but to also allow our patients to achieve optimum health and fitness.  Health is much more than just absence of disease.  Our goal is to not only treat diseases, manage injuries, but to also educate our patients on how to realize their true potential.  We have a wide variety of services, as well as board certified, award winning physicians to accomplish this goal.

The programs we have are:

-Family Medicine   -Sports Medicine

-Physical Therapy  -Acupuncture

-Preventive Medicine  -Wellness Programs

-Aquatic Therapy   -Sports Event Coverage

-Clinical Studies



For most insurance carriers, preventive services such as physical exams, well child checks and well woman exams are a covered benefit.

This is to advise you that if you wish to address a medical problem (new or ongoing) during your preventive visit, your insurance carrier does not consider that part of the preventive physical exam.  Your insurance may determine that a copayment is due for those services.

Certain vaccines such as Zostavax or Tdap may not be covered through your medical benefits and it is recommended to check your pharmacy benefits (Part D for Medicare) for coverage.

Charges for your visit are not finalized until all charges are submitted to your insurance.  Insurance coverage varies by health plan, group, employer, service and diagnosis.  If you have any questions, members of our Business Office staff are available to assist you at (619) 229-3920 ext. 774.



Most insurance carriers pay for well child checks and vaccinations as a preventive service.  Insurance carriers generally follow the CDC guidelines for vaccine schedule administration.

Parents who choose to vaccinate their children on an alternative schedule usually result in an increased number of office visits.  Insurance carriers generally do not recognize these additional office visits as preventive visits.  This may result in a copayment due for each additional office visit, or may result in your insurance denying coverage for the additional office visits.  You will be financially responsible for amounts not covered by your insurance.

If you have questions regarding this information please discuss with your physician or our business department staff at (619) 229-3920 ext. 774.

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy at the San Diego Sports Medicine and Family Health Center is to provide the San Diego Community with exceptional medical expertise and unparalleled personal care in both Family Medicine and Sports Medicine.

Our Mission

We are a highly competent medical team specializing in family practice and sports medicine dedicated to improving the quality of human life and to helping our patients realize their fullest potential through the maximum development and integration of body, mind and spirit.

Controlled Substance Policy

As of June 1, 2014 we have implemented a new policy regarding chronic narcotics and controlled substances prescribed by the physicians and providers at San Diego Sports Medicine and Family Health Center.  Each patient requiring chronic narcotics and controlled substances will be required to sign a contract which will further clarify the rules and requirements of receiving these medications.  The patient will be required to sign the contract, designate a specific pharmacy that will be used, and make regularly scheduled visits in the office to obtain appropriate amounts of these medications.  We are required by the Medical Board of California to perform regular evaluations in the office on all patients using these controlled substances.  We will no longer be able to provide any refills by phone or on evening and weekend calls.  This policy is consistent with the American Academy of Family Physicians best practice guidelines.  We also believe this policy will better enable us to provide excellent and safe clinical care to our patients.
