Barrie Jo Wambold, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC
Clinic Director / Physical Therapist
“People must feel comfortable and confident in my care. I believe through open communication, active listening, constructive education, and feedback, along with a hands-on one on one treatment approach are the keys to success and meeting one’s goals. I work with my patients as a team to not only improve function but their overall quality of life. It is my patients’ recovery that motivates me every day to be a better Physical Therapist and person.”
Professionally speaking, “my focus is to provide the most cost-effective, evidence-based care to my patients. With advanced certifications in orthopedics and manual therapy, I feel a hands-on treatment approach, along with a personalized assessment and treatment plan, based on individuals need, translates to successful outcomes. I utilize the most up to date treatment techniques in a fun environment to help make one’s recovery faster and easier. This philosophy, combined with hard and efficient work ethic, creates positive rewards for all.”
