Dr. Daniel Probst’s Approach to Care

“As a PM&R physician and active Minnesotan, I understand the importance of functioning at your highest level. I take a conservative approach to the treatment of orthopedic injuries focusing on personally tailored physical therapy, ultrasound diagnosis, and, if needed, injections. From competitive athletes and weekend warriors to those simply looking to lead a more active lifestyle, I work with my patients to help them achieve their goals.”
