"I always knew I would go into healthcare because I've always had an interest in how the body works. I chose physical therapy after having undergone several orthopedic procedures and being exposed to the field as a patient. When a patient comes in with severe pain or functional limitations, I draw on my experience of being a patient myself. I feel that a being able to laugh, especially during those tough times, can help the patient progress through their treatment process."
"I'm a hands-on, open book type of physical therapist. I want to know what is going on with each of my patients and I present them with the big picture of what it will take to get them back to the things they enjoy. I strive to give each patient my best effort to get them back to their desired function. In addition, I hope that I'm able to educate them on their condition so that if there are future issues they may be able to resolve them on their own. Of course, I'm always there should they need to return."
