Michelle Camarata, PT, DPT
Physical Therapist, Clinic Director
One comment I can share about being a Physical Therapist is I love going to work every day! To be able to help patients return to the activities they love is most gratifying. I can truly empathize with my patients as I have been oe myself. One of my strongest convictions is that my purpose in life is to heal the human body. I have dedicated myself to life-long education and strongly commit to striving to be the best. My treatment philosophy is that I ama the coach and my patient is the athlete. It is my duty to help my patients win a gold medal no matter what their condition. This includes the patient taking an active role in their rehabilitation with my guidance on how to succeed. My greatest joy is to discharge a patient who has returned to their highest functional level and can once again fully participate in the lifestyle they choose. Winners Win!
