Mark’s Philosophy: “As a physical therapist in today’s healthcare environment, I take great pleasure in the creation of a clinic where the patients are the first priority. This is achieved by providing continuity of care throughout the patient’s stay, as well as a hands on approach with treatment. Sessions on average are 45 minutes long, one-on-one with the treating therapist where manual therapy techniques, active exercise, and dynamic stabilization are emphasized.”
