Areeb Chator, MD

Dr. Chator received his residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Michigan.

His hobbies include kayaking, traveling and board games.

Emma Desjardins, DO

Dr. Desjardins’ interest in medicine started through movement exploration and injury prevention as a professional dancer. She received her medical degree from University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in Biddeford, ME where she was selected as an Anatomy Fellow and spent an extra year teaching anatomy, physiology, histology and clinical skills to medical students. Her post-graduate training started at Berkshire Medical Center where she completed a Medical Internship. She then completed residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Rusk Rehabilitation, NYU Langone Medical Center. She is excited to join the Burke family to continue her training as a Sports Medicine Fellow. As a physiatrist with a background as a dancer she is dedicated to the ideas that movement is integral to health and that function can always be improved. Her clinical interests in PM&R include sports medicine, performing arts medicine, and women’s rehabilitation. When she is not in the clinic she enjoys hiking, yoga, the arts, and spending time with her two daughters.
