As a fellowship-trained, board-certified primary care sports medicine physician, Dr. Patrick King specializes in nonsurgical orthopedic and sports-related care, including concussions. He focuses on nonoperative modalities, such as lifestyle modifications, rehabilitation, injections with and without ultrasound guidance, biologic treatments, and further injury prevention. Though he evaluates all orthopedic and sports-related disorders, he is particularly interested in those involving the shoulder, hip, and knee.
Dr. King has been involved in sports since childhood, achieving state and national championships as early as high school. He graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science degree in health science. He then became an independent personal trainer, developing a niche clientele while also completing his postbaccalaureate studies. Dr. King obtained his medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine. During his family medicine residency in Indianapolis, Indiana, he was the team doctor for a National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) team and multiple high school athletic programs, a resident sports medicine liaison, and actively involved in various community outreach programs. He subsequently completed his sports medicine fellowship training at Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) in Asheville, where his love for the local community developed. Dr. King is also a team physician for Mars Hill University and North Buncombe High School.
Dr. King and his family feel fortunate to call Weaverville/Asheville home. When not seeing patients, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, the great outdoors, and local cuisine.
