Our Approach To Wellness And Sports Medicine
The practice was established in 2016 and is shaped by the broad experience and capabilities of our team. Our aim is to offer a clinic environment that is proactive in approach and easily accessible to all ages and members of our community. We provide expertise for acute injury and illness as well as services focused on a healthy lifestyle.
We educate and train our clients to become more familiar with their particular health and wellness conditions through programs in genetic testing, medical history review and physical evaluation; nutrition, diet and micronutrient testing; and physical therapy and exercise reconditioning.
Our overarching goal is to get to know our patients and clients in depth, in order to better meet their health care needs.

This includes cardiac stress treadmill testing, spirometry and audiometry, and imaging capabilities for x-ray, bone density and ultrasound.
Dr. Joseph Moore
Dr. Joseph Moore graduated from the University of Virginia School of Medicine in 1982 and started a Navy career that spanned over 30 years. While doing his Family Medicine Residency at the Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton, CA, he realized the principles of Sports Medicine could more quickly return injured Marines back to full duty. The key principal was early access for injuries, similar to an urgent care model. After his family medicine training, he completed a sports medicine fellowship and worked with the US Olympic Teams in Colorado Spring, was team physician at World Youth Game in Moscow in 1995 and team doctor to the USA Women’s Ice Hockey team before the Nagano Games in 1998. He started the Navy’s Sports Medicine program at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton to train Navy Sports Medicine doctors. The community has gone on to develop over 22 Navy sports medicine clinics both stateside and overseas. Dr. Moore is a clinical instructor at UCSD School of Medicine and lectures at the American Academy of Family Physicians’ National Meeting. He is an ordained Roman Catholic Deacon, and he and his wife of over 30 years, Laura, have four adult children.
