Dr. Noe ("Noah") Sariban was born in Boston, MA, but moved 2 weeks later to Belgium for 19 years, and moved back to the US at the age 19. 

He went to the University of Maryland for his undergraduate studies and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. He then went on to graduate from Duke University's School of Medicine with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2013. He met his beautiful wife, Natalie, during orientation at Duke University, and started dating the first week of class. They have been married since 2014.

Noe has been working as a Doctor of Physical Therapy in Sports and Orthopedics since 2013, and enjoys helping athletes of all skill levels return to their prior level of function in order to compete in the sports they love. Noe has always been interested in Sports Medicine as he grew up playing multiple sports. After going through Physical Therapy school, he developed a strong interest in Manual Therapy, and has been training through the Spinal Manipulation Institute under Dr. Dunning to become an expert in Spinal Manipulations. In addition, Dr. Sariban completed his Dry Needling Certification, which has added another dimension to his practice, improving his outcomes with patients. Dr. Sariban is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and is certified to administer the Functional Movement Screen. 

Noe has played sports all his life, but none as much as Basketball, in which he competed at the Junior College level. Other sports he loves and enjoyed playing growing up are tennis, soccer, ping pong, racquetball, golf, badminton, skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, mountain biking, and rock climbing to name a few.

Noe started playing pickleball in early 2017 and hasn't played anything else since! He found it combined skills (anticipation and reaction time, side to side movement, speed and quickness, agility and power, finesse, strategy and teamwork) from so many different sports that it made his transition to the game seem natural. Noe is Sponsored by Engage Pickleball as well as a Certified Pickleball Teaching Professional through the IPTPA. He travels around the USA as a Doctor of Physical Therapy, and teaches lessons and camps around the country. For lessons and clinics, please contact: thepickleballdoctor@gmail.com

As of October 2019, Noe was hired as the official Team Engage Physical Therapist and will be present at tournaments to assist top pros throughout the tournaments with injury management and court-side treatments.

Noe is currently the Pickleball Director of Indian Ridge Country Club in Palm Desert, CA.
