The physicians at Orthopaedic Associates of Michigan are important members of the sports medicine team at Hope College and are known among our staff, coaches, and student athletes as medical professionals who provide appropriate, timely, and thorough care to our competitive athletes. From office visits to surgical interventions, the physicians at OAM demonstrate competence and personal attention while being committed to safely returning athletes to competitive activity. It is without reservation that I highly recommend the physicians and staff at OAM for any and all of your orthopedic needs.

Dr. Tom Matelic has been our team physician for more than ten years and has provided the athletes at Cornerstone University with the highest quality of medical care and consistently outstanding service. Dr. Matelic treats our athletes as if they were an extension of his own family and we have been extremely appreciative of his expert care. Our athletics department has gone through many changes in the past decade, but Dr. Matelic has been constant and faithful member of our extended staff through all of it. On behalf of Cornerstone University, thank-you, Dr. Matelic, for all you do.

Dealing with professional hockey players requires us to have the best medical care possible. This is the reason we have partnered with Orthopedic Associates of Michigan since the inception of the Grand Rapids Griffins. From surgery, to orthopedic consultation to x-ray, MRI and Rehabilitation services our needs have not only been met, but exceeded our expectations. As we do have a choice of medical facilities that we can use for our sports medicine needs, we continue to use Orthopedic Associates of Michigan. It is such a pleasure to know that we have a network of Doctors and staff that are genuinely concerned about the health and well being of our athletes. The past fourteen years have been an excellent experience and I look forward to continuing our relationship well into the future.
