Lycoming Physical Therapy - The Story
While sitting in class my last year of physical therapy school, I felt a little voice inside telling me that we were being groomed for private practice. As I gained experience in various settings (orthopedics, work related injuries, sports injuries, wound care, home health, etc.) I felt the need to expand and branch out. I managed a satellite center for The Williamsport Hospital which gave me a taste of private practice - what a thrill!! I then became the Chief Physical Therapist a Muncy Valley Hospital for a year- the frustrations grew. Finally, Patti and I answered that little voice inside and investigated the possibilities of opening a private practice. After months of prayer and discussion with family, friends, and business people, we took a huge leap of faith - literally! We opened Lycoming Physical Therapy in June of 1993.
Since that time we have been tremendously blessed with a dynamic friendly staff that takes a genuine interest in our most valued asset - our patients. We work hard to provide the best physical therapy care possible. Our staff often researches new techniques and skills to complement the annual continuing education courses we attend. Communication also plays a critical role in your care - communication with physicians, employers, coaches, etc. occurs regularly. This keeps all parties informed and allows proper efficient treatment to occur. We also strive to keep abreast of insurance regulations and trends - another often overlooked portion of your care.
What do we stand for? Quality physical therapy care based on the latest research given in a friendly atmosphere centering our care on you the patient. On the following pages I offer you the finest staff in the county and a brief glimpse of our extended family. We also offer to you our Core Values, our Vision, and our Mission. If you need anything please do not hesitate to discuss your concerns with me. I thank you for your interest in our practice. I hope and pray for you and your needs.
