Hi, I'm Dr. Metzl
I’m a sports medicine physician at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, where I’ve cared for more than 25,000 patients over my 20 year career.
Every day in my office I care for all types of athletes, from 8-year-old gymnasts just starting out to 80-year-olds who are running marathons. The common factor among all my patients is they’re looking to return to their field of choice. It’s my job to keep them healthy.
