Gary Taylor is used to providing advice to others when they come into Go! Running, but when Dr. Michael Cassat came into his store, the roles quickly reversed. Gary asked the sports medicine doctor if he could help with a lingering Achilles tendon problem, and the doctor’s response was, “Sure, come see me.” Dr. Cassat prescribed physical therapy, a night splint, and modified training.
A few months later, Gary was in better running condition than he had been for several years. While selling running gear, Gary now readily refers others to Dr. Cassat, a family physician with an emphasis in sports medicine at UAMS, explaining how his passion, caring and expertise made a difference in his life.
“The first thing you notice about Dr. Cassat is that he obviously cares and has a real passion for what he does. With the backing of an institution like UAMS, you know you’re in good hands. They make a great combination for the Central Arkansas fitness scene.”Gary Taylor, Little Rock
