Philosophy of care
I want to empower patients by helping them learn how to self-treat or manage their conditions.
Why Michael went into therapy
I received physical therapy as a patient when I was in the Air Force. After that, was inspired to pursue PT as a career.
Favorite advice to give patients
You can do this. ‘It’ will get better.
Outside of work I enjoy fat tire biking, road biking, kettlebell training, Yoga/Pilates, spending time with my family, reading and working on home projects.
I have a deep respect for the PT’s role in the health care team, but also a very strong appreciation for the contributions of all other team members. Our care should be patient-focused, with contributions from the team as a whole.
