Dr. Rohrer has provided medical coverage at numerous sporting events including the Ironman World Championship and the Thunderboat Regatta, and for events at the U.S. Olympic Training Center and San Diego State University (SDSU) Aztec Athletics. He currently serves as a Team Physician for the SDSU Athletic Department, San Diego Christian College, the U.S. Olympic Training Center in San Diego, and La Jolla Country Day School. He also maintains academic teaching positions with SDSU and the University of California, San Diego.
As one of the well-trained and experienced physicians at SDSM’s Executive Health & Corporate Wellness Center, Dr. Rohrer demonstrates his passion for wellness and preventive medicine through a personally customized approach to patient care. He incorporates the principles of teamwork, dedication, and discipline into the foundation of his pursuit of medicine. Dr. Rohrer takes a one-on-one approach to patient care: discover what makes someone tick, motivate them to take charge of achieving optimal health, and tailor a plan to fit their needs.
Dr. Rohrer participates in outdoor activities from cycling and trail running to fishing and camping. His belief that exercise is medicine, and the best cure for disease is prevention, keeps Dr. Rohrer committed to a regular fitness routine. He enjoys trail running because it gives him time away, without distractions, to think and pray about what is important in life. Dr. Rohrer’s pursuit of horticulture and landscape design also provides stress relief.
Dr. Rohrer likes the “small town” feeling of San Diego, but most of all the coastal areas, beaches and local wildlife in America’s Finest City. Dr. Rohrer is happily married and has three daughters, ages six, three, and one.
Health care maintenance is all about the little choices we make every day. These choices form the habits that ultimately define our health. Making every effort to change the things we can control is the beginning of good health.
