Q: What makes you excited to jump out of bed and head to work each day?
A: I love interacting with patients and helping guide them towards their goals. I believe deeply that physical therapists should act in the best interests of their patients, so having the opportunity to do that day in and day out is a really cool experience.
Q: What is one thing you’d like every patient to walk away with from their experience at Optivus Physical Therapy?
A: I try to accomplish two tasks during every patient visit. First, I want my patients walking out the door with more answers than questions. I’m not doing my job if a patient is confused about anything regarding the rehabilitation process. I also want the patients to understand that I am there to help them during their rehab journey and that I will do everything in my power to do so.
