David Lessman, MD is fellowship trained in non-operative Sports Medicine for patients of all ages. Though he enjoys seeing all active patients from a weekend warrior to professionals, Dr. Lessman specializes in acute and overuse injuries of the adolescent athlete. He also has specific training in ultrasound and ultrasound guided injections used for the treatment of arthritis and tendon injuries. He recently moved from Chicago where he developed a thriving concussion clinic for the largest medical system in Illinois. He prides himself on communication from explaining the diagnosis to involving the patient in their treatment plan. He is passionate about returning his patients to what they love doing as quickly and safely as possible.

Dr. Lessman is a team physician for the Seattle Thunderbirds hockey team and works with athletes from high schools and colleges throughout the Seattle Metropolitan area. Outside of medicine, Dr. Lessman enjoys spending time with his wife and two young boys. He's been active his whole life and loves baseball, dance, watching all sports, and being in and on the water.
