As team physician for local high schools and colleges, he sets policy regarding sports injury management and return to play protocols. He is often on the sidelines at local football games.

Dr. Small graduated from Haverford College with a BS in biology. He received his medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and completed his Pediatrics residency at Montefiore Medical Center. He completed two Sports Medicine fellowships. One fellowship was at Harvard’s Boston Children’s Hospital and the other was with the esteemed Oded Bar Or, MD – who is known as “the father of sports medicine” - at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Dr. Small is now clinical assistant professor at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in Manhattan in the departments of Orthopedics, Pediatrics, and Rehabilitation Medicine. His hospital affiliation is with The Mount Sinai Hospital. He is the former chairman of the AAP committee on Sports Medicine.

Dr. Small has given thousands of lectures on both sports injuries and youth sports concussion medicine both nationally and regionally. He has been named Best Sports Medicine Physician multiple times by New York Magazine, Westchester Magazine, Metro Physician and Hudson Valley Parent and in 2016  by Castle-Connolly. He has been quoted on youth baseball injuries in the Wall Street Journal and has appeared on an NBC news segment on youth sports injuries. He is the author of “Kids and Sports” and is currently  working on his next book.
