Greetings from Seattle!
I'm Dave, a Family Medicine resident physician at the University of Washington and medical analyst here at Bleacher Report. I graduated from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine in June 2013, and following residency, I plan to pursue fellowship training in Primary Care (non-operative) Sports Medicine.
I started analyzing injuries in 2010, and I joined Bleacher Report in 2012. My goal is to shed light on injuries and medical topics as they affect the collegiate and professional sports worlds, and at present, I focus primarily on the NFL. The Professional Football Writers of America graciously granted me membership in Dec. 2013.
Follow me at my Twitter account to stay updated on my articles and musings on sports, medicine and the world in general: https://twitter.com/DaveMSiebert. I can also be reached via email at: DaveSiebertBR@gmail.com.

Just to be absolutely clear, all of my tweets, articles and posted comments represent my own independent opinions or analysis and do not in any way reflect those of my residency program nor any persons affiliated with it or its university, hospitals or clinics. Nothing I write is (or should be taken as) medical advice for the player in question—or anyone else, for that matter. Finally, I do NOT have access to the personal medical records of the athletes about whom I write. My analysis represents only my best educated speculation based on available information and consults with experts and/or specialists.
That said, my writing is made possible only by the knowledge I have been fortunate and privileged enough to acquire from some of the best medical educators on this planet, something for which I will be immensely grateful for as long as I live.
Haha, no worries, Dave. I thought that was a good one!
Hey Dr. Dave, my name is Dan. My first year of medical school I did a little writting too, on a CBSsports blog. Bleacher Report was in its infancy then, and they approached me about trying to write with them instead. After that first year of school I stopped sports blogging but would love to get into it with more time now. I'm in my last year of school, interview season is done, and I've got 6 months to enjoy now. How'd you get into it?
Sorry for the delay in getting back, Dave, but you're certainly weclome — and kudos on reaching the 1M milestone. You must be doing something right,eh?
Congrats on 1,000,000 reads! Wow!!
You're welcome, Dave!
no problem, Mr. Doctor
And you = The Doctor, Dave!
Teamwork is great, Dave! Glad to help.
Hi Dave. Congratulations on your shoutout for the Randall Cobb piece!
Hi Dave! Always glad to help.
