Lily McDowell , PT, DPT
My professional philosophy is to always place the patient’s needs first. I take responsibility for scheduling and creating a schedule that best fits each patient. I work hard to advocate for every patient within the healthcare system to ensure that they are given the best all-around care. I continue to educate myself on new topics through evidence-based resources to ensure that my patients are receiving the highest level of care I can possibly provide them.
My patient care philosophy is to create a unique, individualized care plan to fit each patient’s individual experiences and situations to provide the best care as possible. I take the time to practice good listening skills and express empathy to each individual patient interaction. I also believe that the patient plays a significant part in determining their own health decisions and I involve the patient in all decisions regarding their care with physical therapy from scheduling, home exercise program, and the progression of their care.
