David C. Thorson, M.D.

I am dedicated to providing comprehensive and quality care to patients and encouraging them to be active individuals.  I work with patients who have chronic diseases to develop a road map to achieve better health, and I then travel that road with them.  I promote lifelong fitness and wellness and have a strong interest in sports medicine.  I want to help my patients who are dealing with injuries maximize function and minimize time away from their daily activities such as sports, work, or school.

Range of Practice

Full range of family practice including infants to geriatrics with additional special interest in sports/musculoskeletal medicine.
