Dr. Rosa M. Pasculli, MD, MBA

Dr. Rosa M. Pasculli is a non-operative Sports Medicine physician. Dr. Pasculli graduated from Barnard College, after which she completed medical school at New York University (NYU) School of Medicine and received a Master of Business Administration from NYU Stern School of Business with a specialization in Leadership and Change Management. She completed her residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at NYU and a fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine at Emory University. During her fellowship year, she served as the team physician for Emory University and Dunwoody High School. She also provided medical event coverage for the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Dream, Atlanta Track Club, and Atlanta Ballet.

Her practice is guided by the wise words of Dr. George Sheehan that “every patient is an athlete… just in different stages of training.” As a former competitive dancer, Dr. Pasculli’s primary clinical area of interest is performing arts medicine; she serves as a physician for the Atlanta Ballet and is a faculty member of the Female Athlete Program. Her other clinical interests include diagnostic and interventional musculoskeletal ultrasound, and sport-related concussions. She is certified to practice acupuncture as a complementary treatment for acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries. She also enjoys exploring the pillars of lifestyle medicine with her patients and discussing healthful eating habits, ways to increase physical activity, and stress management techniques.

She enjoys yoga and weightlifting, spending time with her husband and their two dogs, and exploring new restaurants in Atlanta.
