Aalok was born and raised outside of Philadelphia, PA. He completed his undergraduate, medical school, and residency in Florida where he trained in Family Medicine from Saint Petersburg Hospital. Aalok's interest in sports medicine started when he was a kid growing up in Philly watching the Eagles and Sixers and being inspired by the athletic staff. This interest was solidified when the serious effects of concussion affected his own family. He chose a sports medicine fellowship to hone his skills in ultrasound, concussion management and diagnosis, and musculoskeletal complaints.
