~ DPT Danielle states,
“As a PT for 10 years, working here has been the most compliant and ethical clinic I have worked in to this date. Having the opportunity to spend 1-on-1 time with patients, staff that supports your clinical decision making and opportunity for growth within the company has made this a long term career opportunity. With the diverse patient population, complaint documentation and billing practices and great staff, I would recommend joining our FYZICAL team, especially if looking to relocate to FL, as they helped me make the transition from NJ very easy.”

~ DPT Emily states,
“Working here has provided me a great opportunity to specialize in Balance & Vestibular Therapy by having access to FYZICAL College along with hands-on training and an open line of communication with FYZICAL’s National Director of Balance Training and Education. The knowledge I’ve gained has allowed me to improve the quality of life of my patients and without any cost to me.”

~ PTA Jen states,
FYZICAL has a lot to offer. I was able to attend my first national FYZICAL Brand Triumph in Orlando with my team and it was amazing! Not only was it an eye opening experience into FYZICAL as a national brand, but to all the new technology and treatment options to further assist our patients. It was a beautiful opportunity to unite our ‘home’ families with our ‘work’ family on an epic work vacation. Next year it’s in Dallas!”

~ CCS Bri states,
“It has been a pleasure coming into work knowing that there is a positive atmosphere amongst all team members. This positive atmosphere facilitates effective communication, creates a sense of camaraderie and mutual respect. It is a place where sharing knowledge and getting input is welcomed and not judged. I personally feel that this work environment positively impacts my ability to be more effective and upbeat at the front desk with not only my team members, but with patients as well.”

~ Physical Therapist, Clinical Director and Owner Michael Willett states,
“With growth comes the need for additional like minded clinicians who wish to be a part of something bigger than themselves. We welcome those who are looking to make a difference, seek a career path that grows ‘you’ and have fun doing it! I admire my staff, grateful to have them by my side and joining me with the thousands of like-minded FYZICAL therapists across the country to better the overall physical therapy experience."
