My name is Ben and I imported myself to SETX a few years ago from the Northeast. I was born and raised in Upstate New York in a small town called Greenwich, where cows outnumber the town population and agriculture is the main industry. While in high school, I suffered countless ankle sprains playing basketball & soccer, which opened my eyes to the world of physical therapy from the patient’s perspective. After 18 years in Greenwich, I was accepted by Springfield College in Springfield, Massachusetts in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program (DPT). Springfield’s accelerated DPT program allowed me to obtain a minor in nutrition and a DPT after 6 1/2 years.
Clinical affiliations during my DPT education in Birmingham, AL and Chapel Hill, NC gave me a taste of the south and a hunger for more. After graduation in the summer of 2012, I decided to pursue Traveling PT position which landed me in SETX and introduced me to Home Health. I had also experienced Home Health in the Lakes Area and I was employed in a couple of skilled nursing facilities and also in a convent, located in the North Shore area of Massachusetts. The core of values that United Therapy Services (UTS) is founded upon, as well as the flexibility of the mobile work environment, are two of many positive attributes that drive me to provide Southeast Texans with the best quality of care possible. I value UTS for giving me the opportunity to grow as a clinician and turn me into the young professional I am today.
