For more information please visit www.RPetrieMD.com
Dr. Petrie is a native of Cape Town in the Republic of South Africa. His family includes three generations of physicians: his grandfather, both parents and Dr. Petrie. His family moved to the United States when he was a toddler and he grew up in Rochester, Minnesota in the shadow of the Mayo Clinic. As a child he would accompany his father during school holidays on rounds at the Mayo Clinic, and this early exposure set the tone for his adult career.
As for his specialty in sports-related knee and shoulder injuries, he says, “I liked sports and ended up in doctors’ offices because of them. What is gratifying is to return someone to their life’s passion by fixing what is wrong. That, to me, is why I’m here.”
Dr. Petrie lives in Newport Beach. He enjoys cycling, scuba diving and surfing.
