Peter Rippey, MD

Assistant Professor, Fellowship Director

Dr. Rippey is originally from Missouri and started out his medical career as an Occupational Therapist before returning to obtain a medical degree from the University of Missouri.  He completed his family medicine residency and sports medicine fellowship training at Halifax Health in Daytona Beach, FL.  He has experience practicing in multiple settings including private practice, hospital based practice and emergency medicine.  He has worked with both amateur and professional athletes and served as team physician for collegiate and high school athletics as well as covering community sporting events. 
He has passion for treating the athlete as a whole instead of focusing only on the immediate injury.  Injuries involve not just the athlete’s muscle or joint but can affect their mental health, be caused by training errors, and even result from problems with nutrition.   All these issues need to be considered and addressed when caring for athletes and achieving the ultimate goal - injury prevention!  
Dr. Rippey is married with two children.  He enjoys running, weight lifting, paddle boarding, and hiking.  His older daughter participates in equestrian activities and he and his younger daughter practice the family tradition of beekeeping.
