We are beyond stoked to welcome the newest Atlanta Sports Recovery team member, Dr. Kristy Whyte, MD.
Kristy is joining the team as our Supervising Physician and Performance MD, overseeing all of our athletic trainers (different from personal trainers) . She ensures we adhere to the highest possible standard of care and is our primary point of contact if we suspect one of our clients has a medical issue that is not within our scope of practice. Having her on staff also helps make sure that your super bills are reimbursed by your insurance provider.
Kristy’s background is in Emergency Medicine (EM). Originally from The Bahamas, she emigrated to the U.S. at a young age. She moved to Atlanta in 2015 for EM Residency training at Emory University/Grady Memorial Hospital after completing her undergraduate and medical school studies at the University of Miami in Miami, FL.
Kristy is no stranger to the sports world. She was a decorated Division I track & field sprinter at The U (Miami University), garnering NCAA All-American and ACC Champion / ACC Outdoor Track & Field Most Valuable Performer accolades. Furthermore, she was a member of the Bahamian National Olympic Track & Field Team in 2008 and 2009, competing internationally and representing her home country. Kristy appreciates being physically active and has participated in and completed a 100-mile bike race from the Dolphins Cycling Challenge while raising over $3500 for cancer research. Locally, she is a Decatur Strength & Conditioning sports gym member and enjoys providing occasional sports coverage for local university teams. Kristy prides herself on taking excellent care of patients as if they were her own family. She is excited to join the Atlanta Sports Recovery team, returning our athletes to full physical strength and the activities they know and love.
