Carol Wilder MD
Choosing to be a sports medicine physician was a natural progression for Dr. Wilder. It combined her medical training in family practice with her love of sports. She enjoys taking care of active people of all ages and abilities who are motivated to better themselves!
As a Division 1 level swimmer in college, she experienced firsthand the commitment involved in high level sports as well as the physical toll it can have.
After practicing primary care for many years, she learned to appreciate the importance of physical activity on controlling many chronic medical conditions and giving people a sense of wellbeing. Practicing sports medicine draws upon her primary care training but allows her to specialize in musculoskeletal disorders.
Her practice can range from young kids with soccer injuries to 80-year olds with arthritis wanting to get back to pickle ball to local ultra-runners with overuse injuries. She has a special interest in musculoskeletal ultrasound and PRP injections.
After earning her medical degree from Medical College of Wisconsin, she completed her internship and residency at St. Anthony Family Practice Residency in Denver Colorado. She completed her fellowship at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center, in Sports Medicine.
She volunteered at the Ironman Medical tent in Kona for several years and provides medical coverage for numerous local events both in Washington and Oregon including Enduro mountain bike races, marathons and high school and college sports coverage.
A native to the Pacific Northwest, she loves the outdoors. When she’s not working, she is snowboarding, mountain biking, or on the river with friends and family.
