I am a board-certified and fellowship trained primary care sports medicine physician who specializes in treating active individuals with sports related acute and chronic overuse injuries. I have been in practice with the University of Rochester Medical Center’s Orthopaedics department since 2018. I manage a variety of musculoskeletal injuries, including shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip, knee, and foot/ankle pathology, through non-surgical options. I also manage other sports related medical issues, including concussions. My practice includes the use of ultrasound to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal pathology. I specialize in ultrasound-guided injections, with a special interest in regenerative and orthobiologic injection treatments, including platelet rich plasma and bone marrow concentrate treatments.

I enjoy working with active individuals and athletes including some from our local high-school, collegiate, and professional teams.

I love golf and have a passion to help golfers perform to best of their ability with less pain. I am Level 1 Titleist Performance Institute certified and I'm currently working through level 2. Certification demonstrates my ability to improve function and identify keys to injury prevention. I have hopes of eventually establishing a “URMC golf clinic.”

[...] Patient did not sense that doctor was empathizing with concerns, and explanations of possible outcomes were not easy to understand. A sense of caring was lacking.

Dec 06, 2023


Dr. Obourn is great. [...].

Dec 05, 2023


[...] He is condescending. [...] Has not been helpful at all. [...] He always seems totally non chalant . I would never recommend him to anyone.

Dec 02, 2023


Dr P Obourn is a caring person and once you get to know him a nice guy. The initial visit was not the best as he did not listen to my description of the Injury to Include my opinion and research. I ended up being correct in my diagnosis....he eventually came to the same diagnosis. I think he is a little defensive initially and does not have the best interpersonal skill initially. [...] BUT he did dramatically improve in terms of the "wall" he puts up. HOWEVER with all that being said, he's an alright dude and this is a complex case with multiple diseases (LYME and some degenerative knee issues) and I think he did much better as time went on.

The provider made me feel as if I was an inconvenience and was very condescending. [...]

Excellent care

Oct 28, 2023


Reviewed my chart and X-rays as I came into the room and had ultrasound to determine and accurately locate area for needle. Quickly diagnosed and provided pros/cons and assured I understood and asked permission to continue. Very personable yet professional and knowledgeable.

Oct 26, 2023


Always the very best of treatment. Already feel better in the right shoulder. Many thanks for the pain relief.

Oct 22, 2023


My doctor is very thorough andalways goes over my case completely with me.

Oct 09, 2023


He seemed very uninterested in dealing with me

Oct 07, 2023


Dr. Obourn was great at reading over the paperwork and handwritten questions and comments that I brought in. He spent a lot of time with me and was patient while I asked questions. Overall a very good doctor and I would recommend him to friends/family.

Sep 13, 2023


Provider spoke WAY too fast. It was like he was in a real rush to get through the whole procedure or that I was being interrogated with very little time. I had to process what he was saying after he was done saying it because he spoke so quickly it was hard to keep up! [...]

Sep 09, 2023


Very good making recommendations

Aug 26, 2023


[...] I felt like they had very little time and everything had to move along quickly. The doctor spoke so fast I had to ask him to repeat some stuff. It was my first time there, my problem wasn't that severe but definitely affects my lifestyle. He did explain my knee problem and prescribed physical therapy. Kind of what I knew going in. Overall, it was an efficient appointment.

Aug 25, 2023


I have already recommended to 2 people. Would happily return even though 45min from home.

Aug 19, 2023


It was obvious this doctor knew his stuff and was smart but he didn't slow it down and put it in words for me to understand well.

Aug 13, 2023


Since making the appt., I had issues in my other leg that weren't addressed to my satisfaction.

Aug 08, 2023


Dr Obourn did a great job with explanations of pros and cons with hip injections and other alternatives to treat an arthritic hip

Jul 21, 2023


It seems like every conversation was repeated for clarity and understanding.

Jul 15, 2023


[...] terminology was a little confusing at first - No worries otherwise.

Jul 13, 2023


Provider seemed rushed and succinct

May 21, 2023


The provider include the following note in my chart notes but DID NOT have this discussion with me during the visit: "We discussed the role chronic comorbidities and obesity play in complicating this disease and that they can limit treatment options. The patient was advised that strict control of comorbidities and weight are vital for treating osteoarthritis." I understand that some prepared notes may be copied into chart notes, but there should be better review of the notes prior to posting them. The doctor is very knowledgeable about my condition - however, I did not feel that my experience with my condition was shown much concern with the impact on my daily life.

May 14, 2023


He was good but seemed rushed

Apr 17, 2023


Dr. Obourn was condescending and acted like he did not have time for my visit. I am disappointed with this doctor and his examination. I am also disappointed [...] to see this doctor for answers and suggestions to help alleviate serious pain and now I need to start over again.

Apr 13, 2023



Apr 05, 2023


Dr. Obourn is an outstanding provider. Very clear and concise passing along information. He was able to relate very well to my condition and help me make an informed decision about treatment. Outstanding experience all around!

Mar 19, 2023


I appreciate everything Dr. Obourn did and all the support and concern displayed by the staff and health team.

Mar 18, 2023


The only negative about the Doctor is that he spoke VERY fast and when asked to slow down he seemed a bit irritated. Very knowledgeable but a bit dismissive . Speaking slower to the elderly helps with a Bedside MannerThat's all

Mar 17, 2023


Not warm/caring

Mar 13, 2023


So glad this doctor and his team were recommended to me, exceeded my expectations!

Feb 22, 2023


The doctor seemed rushed, uninterested in my concerns and questions. He made no effort to find out anything about me.

Feb 19, 2023


Love this guy, he's very competent and had a great bed side manner.

Feb 16, 2023


Peter Obourn is very skilled in his trade.

Feb 15, 2023


Great visit very thorough with great and professional discussion about the procedure. They gained my confidence and trust. I appreciated that

Jan 28, 2023


Still don't know what cause is of knee swelling.

Dec 13, 2022


[...] He hurried through and seems to just lump me into a broad category. He did not really care much about my personal circumstance.

Oct 31, 2022


Very pleased

Oct 21, 2022


Very good

Oct 18, 2022


I felt that the doctor did not listen to my issues and pain level. He seemed to actually be angry that I was there to meet with him. I felt as if I was wasting him time and he wanted to hurry up with me to get to his next appointment. This kind of treatment makes me not want to see the doctor again and is a detriment to my improving. I certainly hope this was a one time incident because it really turned me off to going to a doctor which is not a good idea with all of my health conditions.

Oct 06, 2022


Dr. Obourn was very thoughtful and caring. He explained my option in detail with easy-to-understand descriptions. He seemed interested in my healing and recovery. I've never had a specialist doctor take such time and show enthusiasm and care about my recovery. I've already told many family members and friends if they need a D.O. That Dr. Obourn is terrific. I highly recommend him.

Sep 29, 2022


Professional, to the point!

Sep 20, 2022


We chose to return to see Dr OBourn for a new injury. My son saw him 3 years ago for a concussion and when he recently injured his hip we were happy to be offered an appt with him

Aug 31, 2022


He was an excellent and very thorough physician. I would highly recommend him!

Aug 23, 2022


You know, Dr. Peter seemed to have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed. I found him combative when I asked questions.[...]

Aug 08, 2022


My doctor is always VERY thorough in explaining risk, treatment, options with me. I couldn't ask for better. I have recommended him to many.

Jul 13, 2022


Dr. Was very thoughtful and responsive to what this writer had to say.

Jun 01, 2022


He has no bed side manor and I had to ask questions in order for him to give me the information I needed regarding my injury, how to treat it and what to do moving forward. I'm sure he knows his stuff, but didn't communicate very well or in a nice manor.

May 22, 2022

He was excellent

Excellent care by Dr Obourn over two years

Apr 06, 2022


This doctor was very personable and honestly wanted to help me in any way he could. He also was very good at talking in "layman's terms" when discussing medical issues. He was through in all he did.

Mar 14, 2022


Arrogant, condescending and uncaring.

Mar 13, 2022


Bad bedside manner. Used terms I didn't understand and I had to ask him to explain. I'm 41 with a masters degree. [...]

Mar 11, 2022


Doctor did an excellent job of informing me of my options and his recommendations. I felt very comfortable wirh his treatment.

Feb 27, 2022


I found this doctor to be exceedingly thorough and he listened carefully to what I had to say. He explained the procedure to me and was very considerate of my feelings.
