Susan B. Fix, PT, MPT

Physical Therapist

“I am driven by a passion to assist patients in achieving their maximum rehab potential.  I am their guide and teacher on their road to recovery, striving to help them realize the potential they have within themselves to overcome any physical difficulty they face.

I consider myself successful if I can educate my patients and teach them how they can control their destiny during therapy through an understanding of body mechanics, exercise and perseverance.”
