LOCATION: SPT – Bellevue 

I earned my doctor of physical therapy degree from Columbia University, specializing in adult neuro-rehabilitation while maintaining a deep interest in sports rehabilitation.  I grew up in the South-East of England and studied in London, earning a bachelor’s degree in biology, a master’s degree in neuroscience and a PhD in developmental neurobiology. Looking for a new challenge and experience to live abroad I moved to New York city to work as a research scientist at Columbia University, where I worked for eight years analyzing the eyes of fruit flies. While I was coaching and playing with the Columbia Medical School rugby team, I suffered a serious knee injury that needed surgery and a long bout of physical therapy to recover. It really was a life-changing moment for me. While laying on the treatment table as a patient, I became so interested in everything related to physical therapy that it led me back to school and into a new career. After working as a therapist for 4 years in NYC, surviving the initial lockdown of NYC and getting married using Zoom, my wife and I decided to escape the concrete jungle and move to the open spaces and mountains of the PNW, and we are loving it so far. Outside of the clinic I love photography, travelling, going on road-trips and exploring the national parks with my wife, spending time with family and watching rugby, football (soccer!) and the occasional pint of ice cream.

Personal Quote:

“As a former patient myself, I understand the importance of effective physical therapy and being able to resume normal physical activities as soon as possible. Using evidence-based practice and individualized rehabilitation programs, I’ll provide the knowledge, support, and encouragement you need to help you achieve your goals.” -Yannis
