CORVALLIS — Matthew Taylor, M.D., is the newest provider to join The Corvallis Clinic’s Orthopedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Department. He offers non-surgical treatments for pain and injuries related to sports and other exercise, along with preventive measures. To schedule an appointment, call 541-754-1276.
Dr. Taylor comes to The Clinic from WellSport Sports Medicine and Midland Urgent Care in Midland, Mich., where he had practiced as a primary-care sports-medicine physician since 2012.
He is certified by the American Board of Family Medicine with a Certificate of Added Qualification in Sports Medicine. He completed a fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine from Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine in Kalamazoo, Mich., in 2012.
“It’s very rewarding to help people get back to doing what they love,” said Dr. Taylor, who has a special interest in concussion management. “It gives me the opportunity to be part of a team and be on the sidelines providing medical coverage.”
He said his goal is to get people back to the activities they love without drastic intervention. “If we can make simple changes to training regimens, lifestyle, or foot wear, and patients feel better – that’s a win. I try to do as much as I can conservatively and then refer to our surgeons when needed.”
Dr. Taylor completed a Family Medicine residency at MidMichigan Medical Center in Midland, Mich., in 2011 and earned a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Hawaii-Manoa John A. Burns School of Medicine in 2008.
He likes to camp and hike with his wife and four young children.
