Sports Medicine Doctor - Dr. David Krey
Dr. David Krey: I chose sports medicine because it combines my two passions in life, one being sports and the other being medicine. The most rewarding aspect for me in sports medicine is one, being a family medicine doctor, and being a sports medicine doctor is working with patients of all ages, and working with them to get them better, get them back to doing the things they want to do, whether it's getting them back to sports or whether it's somebody who just needs to get feeling better, so they can go for a walk every day.
One challenging aspect of sports medicine would be... being an athlete myself, the one thing you want to do is get back to sport and activity as fast as possible. One challenging thing, but also rewarding, is working with patients in individualizing treatment to get them better fast, but also getting them back safely and also working on that preventative aspect to prevent injury in the future.
At Sauk Prairie Healthcare, because it's home for me, I'm back in a community and back in the area that has given so much to me. Growing up in this community, I actually did suffer injury. I broke my leg in high school, and Sauk Prairie Healthcare is where I went, and I worked with the orthopedic surgeons there and had surgery, had a great experience. And that's one of those things that I think got me on the road and on my path and eventually brought me home.
