Our Medical Team

Peter Rippey, MD

Peter Rippey, M.D., is originally from Missouri and began his medical career as an occupational therapist before returning to obtain a medical degree from the University of Missouri. He completed his family medicine residency and sports medicine fellowship training at Halifax Health in Daytona Beach, Fla. He has experience practicing in multiple settings including private practice, hospital-based practice, and emergency medicine. He served as team physician for collegiate and high school athletics, as well as covering community sporting events.

He has passion for treating the athlete as a whole instead of focusing only on the immediate injury. Rippey teaches that injuries do not only involve the athlete’s muscles or joints. It can affect their mental health, be caused by training errors, and even result from problems with nutrition. These issues need to be considered and addressed when caring for athletes and achieving the ultimate goal – injury prevention.

Dr. Rippey heads our procedural training as well as our point-of-care ultrasound training. He is an Assistant Professor and Sports Medicine Fellowship Director at the University of South Alabama Dept. of Family Medicine.
