In his role as a physical therapist, Doug helps patients suffering from injury or disease to restore function, improve mobility and relieve pain. His specialty areas include balance disorders, geriatrics, manual therapy and vestibular rehabilitation. Doug has been selected for Employee of the Month for several reasons.
