looking for a primary care doctor in Scottsdale. background in sports, ortho, weekend warrioring. Younger and of the generation where fitness is part of lifestyle, or at least someone who is used to treating non-pro athletes who like to go hard. Also able to do all the general practice stuff like blood panels, grab my nutz and make me cough etc. as well.

do you like your doc? does he\she make getting scrips and xrays easy? when you tell them you broke your finger hitting some gnar do they shame you, or do they ask you how they can help get you back on the bike? my former pcp was a college athlete, runner, mid-40s, fit, down-to-earth professional without a god-complex.

ok...y'all get what I'm looking for now.

thank you.

Dr. Medoff is good- had him a few years ago.

My favorite is not is Scottsdale- but is at 7th St and T-bird which is not far away and gives a great excuse to go ride T100 after your appointment! Her name is Dr. Lynn Pirie D.O.- she is a former Ms. Universe from the 80's. She understands sports injury and joint and movement injury AND recovery. She is in an independent office and accepts many insurance. The best- she has her own PT and facility attached to the office who is just as well versed.

A couple of instances really made me believe she knew what she was doing
-In 1984- my father seperated his shoulder. Even though there was some new surgery techniques sho opted for rehab and lett it heal on its own. My father has not had any trouble with the shoulder since.
-In 2004- I seperated three ribs from my sternum in a MTB ride. Race season started in 5 weeks and it was to be my year to go for it. I could not even talk softly without real pain. First she did not give me any pain meds. Her reasoning was that if I dulled the pain, I could move wrong and hamper the healing. I did three PT sessions a week and finished 4th in my first race out.
-She also done spinal alignments which helped on another crash that tweaked my neck.
-Warning- you may be sitting in the waiting room well past your appointment time. The reason is she takes what ever time it takes to treat the patient currently in her office- and she will do the same for you when its your turn. No 15 minute-to-Ibu800's HMO crap here.

I get my benefits from the VA (free) now but if I injure myself in a way that I think she would take care of it best- I will gladly pay out of my thin pockets to have her take care of me.
