About Samantha: “I believe in a patient centered approach to physical therapy, where the patient and physical therapist work on a plan to achieve the patient’s goals. I believe a mix of specialized manual therapy and exercise specific to the patient is the key to a successful recovery. I want to give patients tools to help manage their condition after our physical therapy session has ended so they can continue to achieve their goals. I treat each patient as an individual and love the connection I get to make with patients.”
