In partnership with Sentara, injury clinics are offered weekly at 5 p.m. in the athletic training room. This weekly clinic is an opportunity for Norfolk Collegiate student-athletes to receive a free injury screening from a board-certified sports medicine specialist.
Our experienced physician evaluates sports injuries and recommends what (if any) further treatment is necessary, whether it’s an appointment with a primary care physician, physical therapist, orthopaedic specialist or for additional tests such as X-rays.
Examinations are provided by Dr. Frederick Bagares, whose focus is orthopedics, physical medicine and rehabilitation and sports medicine. Dr. Bagares is a concussion specialist and is board certified in sports medicine, and physiatry, which focuses on how muscle, bone and nerve injuries/diseases affect movement. He takes a whole body approach with his patients, first looking at the injury and pain associated with it and the resulting functional limitations.

When not assisting Collegiate’s community, he works at Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in Norfolk. He earned his Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine from Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. 

His clinical interests include biomechanics, rehabilitation medicine, pain science, spine care, electrodiagnostic medicine, musculoskeletal ultrasound and medical education.

Dr. Bagares’ personal goal is to treat patients as quickly, efficiently and cost effective as possible. He understands that every patient is different so the treatment plan must also be flexible and diverse.

Student-athletes will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis; however, we ask that appointments with Dr. Bagares be scheduled in advance with our athletic trainer.
