Dr. Pierre Mikhail
Sports Medicine Physician
BSc., MD, CCFP (EM), CFPC, Dip Sp Med IOC
Coaching high school runners for a decade nurtured an interest in sports medicine.

This provided him with the opportunity to consolidate his knowledge, help athletes and potentially provide medical care at future Olympic Games through the IOC.
Although Dr. Mikhail enjoys seeing a wide variety of sport and exercise medical concerns, he particularly enjoys working with runners and endurance athletes.
Dr. Mikhail has run for forty years on the track, on the road and cross-country. He has been part of three masters cross-country Ontario championship teams and two second place team finishes at Canadian Cross-Country Championships. He has run over twenty marathons including the big three in the US (Boston, Chicago, New York). He coaches cross-country and track at the high school level and helped found Muskoka Algonquin Runners.
