Dr. Guerriero has treated athletes at all levels: professional, olympic, collegiate, high school and youth just beginning to enjoy sports. Dr. Guerriero relates, "I love getting athletes back in action because when I was a young athlete, injuries not effectively treated medically kept me on the sidelines too often. It is not all about sports for me though. It is a tremendous feelign to see the look on a older gentleman’s face when his hands work well enough to do card tricks again, or when a patient tells me her knee does not hurt anymore so she can go for walks with her husband again. These are the reasons why I love what I do."
