Brock enjoys caring for patients of all ages, but has always had a passion for working with young adults and children. Before joining our team, he worked in a busy pediatric orthopedic practice in California for three years. He finds it very rewarding to help young patients recover from injuries and return to their active lifestyle. He also holds an interest in caring for patients with congenital deformities, it inspires him to see both surgical and nonsurgical treatments make a big impact on a young person’s life.
Brock’s interest in sports medicine and orthopedics began in college. After a sports injury, his experience with an athletic trainer inspired him to change his major and become a Certified Athletic Trainer. After working as the head athletic trainer for Portland Timbers Soccer and men’s sports teams at the University of California Irvine, he decided to expand the scope of his practice and pursue a career as a physician assistant.
After a nine-year absence, Brock and his family look forward to calling Central Oregon home again. He loves the sense of community here and exploring the outdoors with his family. They enjoy camping, fly fishing, skiing, surfing, and traveling.
