About

Bio

Primary care sports medicine physician and Head Team Physician for the University of Washington Huskies. I enjoy seeing active individuals and athletes interested in getting back to their active lifestyle and sports. I see adults and kids. I enjoy skiing, golf, and music. I am an associate professor, teaching medical students and other doctors. I have physical exam videos posted on youtube at johnokanevideo.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
