Heather Linee Bergeson

Assistant Professor


As a sports medicine physician, I enjoy caring for musculoskeletal issues in patients of all ages, body shapes, and sizes. I am committed to the principles of Health at Every Size providing weight neutral and inclusive care. As an experienced pediatrician in our community, I have a special interest in the young athlete and strive to support health and physical fitness at an early age. My goal is to keep my patients active and healthy throughout their lives.
