He is a graduate from the University of California, San Francisco physical therapy program and received his undergraduate degree in physiological science from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). He is a native English speaker and fluent in Mandarin. His specialties include post-operative and sports medicine physiotherapy for patients of all ages, shapes and sizes. Roger's patients have included NBA, NFL, professional and Olympic athletes from around the world.
"Roger is the best physio that I've ever had. In the last five years, I've needed six surgeries due to skateboarding injuries. He helped me come back from an extensive triple wrist surgery and a double knee scope. His one on one attention, motivational encouragement, and extensive knowledge in the field of rehabilitation made each of my recovery periods much easier to get through. I'm happy to say that, thanks to Roger, both my wrist and knee feel stronger than they ever did even prior to my injuries."
"Working with Roger was like a breath of fresh air. China is not a country where proper, modern sports and athletic rehabilitation treatment can be found easily. I felt safe knowing I was in the right hands. Over time Roger and I have become good friends given that he is not only my go to rehabilitation physician, but a member of the Shanghai expat community. I honestly can’t think of anyone else I would recommend or go to in need."
"I was referred to Roger after suffering a serious injury to my shoulder whilst playing football, with some intensive physio sessions and exercises to ale home, Roger had me back to sports after 14 weeks with no surgery required, Very professional throughout and helpful with great advice, the physio sessions were hard work but enjoyable too. Would highly recommend Roger for physiotherapy for anyone who has sustained sport related injuries and wants to get back to contact sports as soon as possible. Many thanks for the support – in more ways than one !"
