He is also a Consulting Physiatrist for Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital in Grass Valley, CA. Dr. Richnak received his medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine in 1999 and went on to complete his residency in Physiatry at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York, NY in 2003. He has been board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation since 2004 and earned his Sports Medicine sub-specialty board certification in 2013. Since completing his residency, Dr. Richnak has consistently pursued additional professional training, driven by his strong interest in regenerative medicine and its ability to help the human body heal itself.

In 2015, he was brought on as a Regenexx affiliate – the foremost regenerative medical company, offering the most advanced stem cell and platelet procedures. Since 2003, Dr. Richnak and his family have lived in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California. He is an avid outdoor sports enthusiast, with experience as a climbing and back-country ski guide. He and his family spend much of their leisure time cycling, running, backpacking, and skiing the mountains of the Sierra Nevada.
