John Szajenko, M.D., is a physical medicine & rehabilitation physician who sees patients in Midland, and performs procedures at MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland.
Dr. Szajenko’s interest in the specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation started with his interest in sports. “As I progressed through my studies, I recognized my preference toward the neurologic and musculoskeletal systems,” he said. “I also realized I was much more inclined toward non-surgical treatment, which ultimately led me to the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation.”
My philosophy of care emphasizes the goal of improving a patient’s quality of life. We evaluate and treat individuals with various conditions ranging from sports injuries and occupational injuries to arthritis and neurologic disorders. There may be a focus on returning to sports, returning to work, or resuming gardening activities as examples.
