Sports Medicine

Most sports injuries are in fact not surgical, so the Hall Health Center Sports Medicine staff can be ideal to care for your problem. Our staff works closely with the orthopedic surgeons of UW Physicians and can refer you if necessary.

No. Although the clinic is staffed by physicians trained in dealing with sports-related injuries, we also see work related injuries, falls, overuse injuries, and spine problems.

Family Health, Primary Care and Sports Medicine Physician

Dr. Kleemann has been a board certified family physician since 1998, with a special interest in sports medicine.  He grew up in northern Wisconsin, earning his undergraduate degree from Marquette University, and his M.D. from the Medical College of Wisconsin.  He was chief resident of his family practice residency in Norfolk, Virginia, then moved to Puget Sound.  He practiced 13 years in Federal Way before joining University of Washington's Hall Health Center. 

Patient care philosophy

I like to engage my patients in their care and work side by side for better health.  Patients who understand their medical concerns are more empowered to get better, so I often will be found drawing for them or teaching one-on-one. For UW students, I do my best to provide care that will ease their worries far from home and promote their academic success. I feel fortunate to work with the dedicated staff at Hall Health, caring for the wonderful diversity in the UW family and community.

Personal interests

Kayaking and hiking in the summer;  when the weather turns wet, I enjoy software design, woodworking, and cooking.

Clinical interests

Musculoskeletal Injury care and prevention, pediatric care, dermatology, mental health, and medical informatics.
