"I heartily endorse Athletes Care and in particular Mathew McGrath. While the rest of the traditional Health Care profession were scratching their collective heads, Athletes Care came up with practical solutions to improve my health and quality of life. Because of their care and instruction I am able to do things I haven’t done in years. In the words of the twitter generation; #grateful!" - Frank Bruni

"I began seeing Dr. McGrath several years ago for a sports injury that just wouldn’t fully heal; looking back this was the first symptom of a rare, genetic disease that affects my joints and connective tissue. Through much, head scratching and research on his part it was Dr. McGrath who first suggested that I be investigated for Ehlers-Danlos, a condition that often takes decades to have diagnosed. I’ve learned more about how my body works, or doesn’t, from Dr. McGrath than any other clinician I’ve worked with; he always takes the time to answer my questions, explain his approach, and give me a picture of what’s going on in my body. He is a great resource for complex care, and I feel fortunate to have his expertise to draw on when I have issues arise."" - Jenna C."
