On Extending the Physical Therapist’s Reach . . .
As a PT assistant, my job is to follow through with the treatment protocol designed by the patient’s therapist. I’m an extension of the physical therapist. My philosophy in that role is very simple: to do the best for each patient to make them feel as comfortable as they can.
On Working in a “Learning” Organization . . .
I enjoy working at MOI because I’m always learning. There is constant communication between the different therapy specialist’solving treatment problems, sharing resources’and the end result is that treatments are more effective.
