Dr. Andrew Gomez spent most of his early life in Arizona and studied mechanical engineering for his undergraduate studies at The University of Arizona College of Engineering, finishing with honors. After working for a large engineering corporation and starting a small engineering company, he decided to study medicine at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. He opted for postgraduate training at the University of Washington for their family medicine residency program and its broad-spectrum training, focus on research, and strong background in sports medicine. During his years of training, the residency was ranked number one by Doximity and the school was ranked number one in primary care, family medicine, and rural medicine by U.S. News & World Report.
After residency, Dr. Gomez did his sports medicine fellowship at Swedish Spine, Sports, and Musculoskeletal Medicine in Seattle. At Swedish, he was mentored by two Mayo Clinic-trained sports medicine physiatrists, gaining experience with diagnostic ultrasound as well as nonoperative management of musculoskeletal injuries with interventional ultrasound procedures, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC), and many other procedures. In addition, Dr. Gomez provided care to Division I athletes at Seattle University.
Dr. Gomez has coauthored three book chapters and one clinical review on a variety of sports medicine topics. He also has authored and presented two case reports for the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM) Annual Meeting. The AMSSM awarded Dr. Gomez the 2017 Resident Scholarship Award. He is also the recipient of the North American Primary Care Research Group (NAPCRG) and Association of Family Medicine Residency Directors (AFMRD) Resident Award for Scholarship.
Regarding his clinical practice, Dr. Gomez's interests include diagnostic and interventional ultrasound; musculoskeletal procedures, including regenerative medicine; other noninvasive modalities; concussion management; research; sports cardiology; sideline coverage; and exercise and nutrition as methods of preventive medicine. His goal is to help keep individuals and communities fit, healthy, and active.
During his time off, Dr. Gomez enjoys spending time with his wife as well as exercising, being outdoors, cooking and eating, reading, and traveling.
