Meet Dr. Marc Papantonio

Taking a Proactive Approach to Health

dr-marc-longDr. Marc had a passion for health and wellness at a young age, and was inspired by his father, an emergency room physician. His dad believed in a holistic approach to health care, emphasizing the prevention of injury and disease. Dr. Marc also believed that the future of healthcare should not depend on medicine, but on proper diet, exercise and preventative maintenance.

His proactive approach to health led to a successful career as a multi-sport athlete and coach (soccer, basketball, volleyball, track and golf). It is this combination of academic and athletic experience that allows Dr. Marc to accurately diagnose and treat numerous sports/repetitive use injuries.
