Dr. Jay Rook is the Integrative and Athlete Wellness physician with Heritage Life Fit/Heritage Victor Valley Medical Group in southern California. He provides nutrition and fitness oriented primary care to athletic-minded individuals aged 18-64. He also offers integrative, longevity and non surgical injury therapies as a sub-specialist with a focus on athlete performance and recovery.
While his training is in Internal Medicine & Pediatrics, his clinical and practice background is Emergency medicine, Perioperative Medicine, Integrative Medicine and Wellness. He also has a degree in Public Health and extensive research background with authorship of several peer-reviewed, scholarly articles ranging several topics.
When not at work you will find him either charging down the gnarliest line of a trail on his mountain bike or on the soccer pitch in the wing position. He also loves hanging out with his wife (BITE Coach Liz Rook) and their two children. We are thrilled to have Jay as a regular blog contributor!
