Dr. David Geier


Does this sound like you?

You feel a pop in your shoulder while lifting weights, and you don't know if you should go to the emergency room at a local hospital or to an urgent care facility.

You step awkwardly playing soccer or tennis and hurt your ankle. You don't know if you should see your family doctor or if you should make an appointment to see an orthopedic surgeon.

You twisted your knee at work or playing with your kids. You see an orthopedic surgeon who tells you what your injury is, but you don’t understand. Now you don't know what to do, and you don't know if you will ever get back to jogging.

Waiting too long to see a doctor can have some difficult consequences. Don’t let these scenarios happen to you!

Knee and leg pain
  • You wait to see if your pain gets better. Then 3 or 6 months go by, or even a year, and you still hurt and can’t do what you want to do.
  • You put off seeing a doctor because you are scared that he will tell you that you need surgery. Or that you have to stop running or playing your sport. But the pain keeps getting worse, and now you could have a problem that is much more serious than it was when you started having trouble.
  • You have a nagging pain while you are training for an upcoming race or competition, but you put off getting it checked out. It keeps getting worse, and now you face the possibility of not being able to compete at all.
  • You spend hours and hours looking up information on different websites. You watch videos on YouTube or read articles on various doctors’ blogs or medical organizations’ sites trying to figure out what your injury could be and whether it could be serious. All of that time and effort only leaves you more confused than ever.

Seeing a doctor who isn't best for you or your injury can waste time and money and leave you confused.

  • You might go to an emergency room or urgent care and pay several hundred dollars but leave frustrated that you still don’t know what your injury actually is.
  • You undergo tests, like an MRI, which can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars, and you might not have even needed them.
  • You don’t know any orthopedic surgeons in your town. You have seen some TV commercials for one group, but you have no idea if one of the doctors in that group is right for your problem.
  • You end up seeing a doctor that you don’t feel comfortable with. Now you have to find another doctor or surgeon and spend even more money.

Frustrated patient

The office visit with a doctor or surgeon can be very overwhelming. Don’t let one of these outcomes happen to you!

Frustrated woman looking online
  • You are told you need surgery, but you don’t know if other treatments would help you get better without undergoing the knife.
  • You see a surgeon who doesn’t explain your injury and treatment options well, so you leave just as frustrated and confused as before.
  • You might see the doctor's P.A. or nurse practitioner and never see the doctor himself.
  • You call the office repeatedly to try to get more information from the doctor’s assistant.

Getting back to sports or exercise after an injury can be hard.

Let me help you through the process of seeing a doctor or healthcare professional so that you can get back to what you love to do! (as quickly and safely as possible!)

In Your Injury Evaluation, you will learn:

  • Why looking online for a doctor can be a bad idea - or a great one
  • Why a doctor who has a P.A. or nurse practitioner can be good for you - or bad
  • Why the specialty of a doctor or surgeon can impact your outcome from the injury
  • Why the courtesy of the medical assistant and office staff matters
  • Why x-rays and MRIs from other doctors can be crucial to your visit
  • Why so many patients fail to ask the right questions about their injuries

Don’t wait months (or even years) fighting pain in your shoulder, knee or anywhere else! But take steps to see a doctor the right way!

Your Injury Evaluation will teach you...

  • The two main mistakes athletes and active people make after suffering an injury
  • 15 of the most common questions patients wish they had asked when they saw a doctor

The average orthopedic surgeon sees 22 new patients every week in addition to his or her follow-up patients.

That means you probably won’t have much time with your doctor. Learn how you can get the most out of the little time you will have.

You don’t necessarily have to see an orthopedic surgeon.

If you sign up for Your Injury Evaluation, you will learn 4 other types of healthcare providers who might be perfect for your injury.

  • Athletic trainers - These skilled health professionals can do much more than tape your ankles!
  • Physical therapists - You can see them before seeing a doctor, not just after!
  • Your primary care doctor - Think that your family or medical doctor can’t help you for a bone injury? You might be wrong!
  • Primary care sports medicine physicians - You might not be familiar with these sports doctors, but there is a lot they can do for you!

How can you find the doctor who is best to treat your sports or exercise injury?

  • Think online review sites give accurate information about doctors? Wrong! I’ll show you how they often give incomplete information!
  • How to find a great doctor if you just moved to your city and don’t know anyone
  • Do you assume the doctor of a professional sports team is the best orthopedic surgeon in your city? And the best for your injury?

Don't let seeing a doctor for your injury make you nervous. Let me teach you...

  • What should you know before you step into the doctor’s office
  • What your friends can tell you about their doctors
  • What role your insurance company plays in who you see for your injury
  • What information you should bring to the doctor
  • What a P.A. or nurse practitioner can do for you
  • What to watch out for when interacting with a P.A. or nurse practitioner

A word from the creator of Your Injury Evaluation

“I receive hundreds of questions every week from readers dealing with bone and joint injuries. 

Most people don't know if they should see a doctor, or they do see a doctor but don't understand what the doctor told them and what it means. You might struggle with these problems too...

I want to take the mystery out of going to see a doctor so you can get back to sports and exercise as quickly and safely as possible!”

Why I created Your Injury Evaluation course

I'm Dr. David Geier, orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine specialist. I provide information and education on sports and exercise injuries for athletes and active people, much like you, so that you can stay healthy, recover from injury and perform at your peak.

Let's face it. Injuries don’t just hurt our bodies. They force us to miss out on time with our friends and teammates. They keep us from de-stressing after a hard day at work. They can even make us gain weight because we can’t train.

I completely understand. And I want to help.

I've been helping athletes and active patients in my practice and online for over a decade. That's why I'm excited to tell you about the Your Injury Evaluation course.

Injuries can be scary. 

I want to help YOU...

  • Find a doctor that you like and trust
  • Know how to prepare for your visit with a doctor or surgeon so that you leave feeling fully informed and confident in your diagnosis and treatment 
  • Get all the information you need to recover quickly and safely 
  • Leave your doctor’s visit with peace of mind 
  • Make an informed decision that is best for you 
  • Save valuable money by avoiding a trip to an emergency room or urgent care if you don’t need it 
  • Save valuable time by watching one course that takes you through the entire process instead of watching videos and reading articles from random sites with inconsistent advice

Your Injury Evaluation course contains everything you could want to know about seeing a physician, surgeon or other healthcare professional for your sports or exercise injury.


For some injuries, going to an ER or urgent care is a good idea. It is important to know what those doctors can do for you and what they can't.

Who can benefit from the course?

This course is designed to help anyone dealing with injuries that limit their ability to play sports, exercise or even work. You might be an athlete who plays a competitive sport like soccer, basketball or baseball. You could be an active person who just loves to run or lift weights. Or you might have pain that didn’t start in sports or exercise, but it keeps you from working or doing your daily activities the way you want. Or you could be the spouse or parent of someone with such a problem. Regardless of what it is or how the pain started, this course can help you!

How is the course organized?

Your Injury Evaluation course consists of a series of 23 videos organized into 4 basic modules: When to go to an emergency or urgent care facility, What type of doctor or healthcare professional to see, How to find the best doctor or surgeon for you, and How to prepare for your doctor’s visit. I think that watching the videos in order can best answer the questions that most people have. Many people, though, skip around and look for videos to address their needs at that time. Watch them any way that works for you. You can even come back to the videos weeks or months later!

How long do I have access to the course and bonuses?

You have access to this course and the bonus content forever. Watch all the videos right away, or watch one per day for a month or two. Refer back to the videos as you prepare to go to the doctor or before you undergo surgery.

Can I watch the videos on any device?

You can watch the Your Injury Evaluation lessons on your desktop or laptop computer, your tablet or your phone.

Do I need any medical knowledge?

No! In all of the videos, I discuss the information in easy-to-understand language. You don’t need any knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics or medicine. I explain everything you need to know!

Why would I pay for a course when I can just see a doctor instead?

You’re right! I’m not at all discouraging you from seeing a doctor. I want to help you know what type of doctor to see. I want to help you avoid seeing a doctor that doesn’t explain injuries well. For the low price of purchasing this course, I think I can help save you valuable time and money from making the wrong choices.

Does this information represent specific medical advice?

In the Your Injury Evaluation course, I try to explain the entire process of seeing a doctor for evaluation after injury. It is intended to help you select your own physician or healthcare professional and get the most out of that visit. I haven’t seen you, examined you or looked at diagnostic tests, like x-rays or an MRI, because I am not your doctor. I feel strongly that the information in this course can truly make your experience with your injury less stressful, as you will be better prepared for your doctor’s visit (and maybe your surgery). But this course is not meant to replace a doctor’s visit or provide specific medical advice. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy and Medical Disclaimer on this site for more information.


Why continue to be frustrated about what you should do for your bone and joint injury?

You can watch the Your Injury Evaluation course right now! The course comes with a 30-day, money-back guarantee of your satisfaction.

“Order Your Injury Evaluation, watch every video and read the bonuses. If you don’t feel more confident about when you should go to an emergency room or about what type of healthcare professional you should see, if you don’t understand how you can find a terrific doctor who is right for you and your problem, if you don’t understand how you can best prepare for your doctor’s visit so that you leave with all of the information you need to make the most informed decision for you, then I refuse to keep your money.”
