Athletic Trainer, Cleveland Clinic

James O’Leary, MS, ATC/L

Dear Parent:
We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our athletic training services
that are provided to the student athletes at Avon High School.

We will be serving as the athletic trainers at Avon High School. As nationally certified and
Ohio licensed athletic trainers, we are educated and skilled in the services of injury
prevention, injury recognition and evaluation, and orthopedic rehabilitation. We will be
available to evaluate and treat injured athletes as well as provide injury prevention
information. In addition to our services we are fortunate to have Dr. Vikas Patel, DO, from
the Cleveland Clinic as team physician for our school. Dr. Patel treats athletes at his office
and is also present at many Avon High School athletic events. It is also important to
understand that not all injuries can be treated in the high school training room. If an
injured athlete requires additional medical attention, Cleveland Clinic Sports Medicine
can provide priority scheduling with one of our sports medicine physicians.

If you need to speak with us, we can be reached at the contact info listed below.

We are looking forward to the upcoming school year and wish the best of luck and safety
to your son/daughter in their sports season.
