The History of FHSM

Family Health and Sports Medicine was founded in 1983 by Dr. Al Puerini on Park Avenue, Cranston, RI. As an avid runner, Dr. Puerini's goal was to provide the community with high quality primary care and to promote a healthy lifestyle through exercise and nutrition. Sharing the same passion for helping families live healthier, Dr. Mark Rosenberg joined FHSM in 2003 in its Reservoir Avenue location. Dr. Jeff Wilson brought his expertise in primary care and sports medicine to FHSM in 2005.

Our board-certified Family Physicians are devoted to the health care of patients of all ages. We provide annual physical examinations, well child check-ups, same day sick visits, sports injury evaluations, minor surgical procedures and chronic disease management. Drs. Puerini, Rosenberg, and Wilson have all been appointed Assistant Professors of Family Medicine at Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

Since its inception more than 30 years ago, Family Health and Sports Medicine has grown to include an entire team dedicated to the goal of helping patients live healthier. Our current staff includes a nutritionist, a behavioral counselor, and a Nurse Care Manager. We have earned the prestigious NCQA designation as a Level III Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) which means that our physicians and staff have all been specially trained to coordinate the complete care of each and every patient.

FHSM moved to its current location on Sockanossett Cross Road in January 2015.  Their new office is conveniently located with on site lab and x-ray services.
