Meet Dr. Q.
Cleveland Clinic offered me not only hands on experience, but fostered my passion for gaining knowledge by assisting me in the pursuit of my doctorate as well as other specialty certifications. I had a great experience working in Cleveland and expanded my knowledge significantly working with seasoned clinicians. DJ and I did a lot of soul searching and realized that we both wanted to live in Florida. I was offered a position with Florida Hospital Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation which allowed us to move here pretty seamlessly. Living in Florida has also allowed my husband more baseball opportunities.
I quickly realized that working in a corporate PT setting did not allow me to treat patients to the best of my ability. I wanted to have that passion and interaction a one-on-one setting allows you to have which is why I decided to start Dr. Q’s PT. Along with the corporate restrictions, I noticed that young athletes with orthopedic issues are a large yet underserved population. Many people do not realize that pediatric PTs treat developmental delays while orthopedic PTs are not always well versed in the appropriate care of a developing body. I have had significant sports medicine and orthopedic training and experience across the entire age spectrum with a specific interest in youth athletes. With my love of sports and kids, I felt called to serve the young athlete. I am able to spend an entire hour with each patient and treat them the best way that I see fit, not what an insurance company dictates to me. After making the change, I wonder why I didn’t do so a long time ago. I have seen faster, better outcomes much more quickly than I did in a corporate setting. I love that I am able to form a relationship with every person that walks through my door and I can go to bed at night knowing that I am able to do what I love every day and make a difference in peoples’ lives.
