I have been in the Acute Care area for over 21 yrs. I have been a Physical Therapist Assistant for 17. During this time I have increased my knowledge base, and skills to provide expert, individualized care. I believe in putting the patients, and their needs, first. However, I have enough experience to realize that you can't make every patient happy. I take my job as an acute care Physical Therapist Assistant very seriously and allow few refusals. I continue to enjoy my field of choice and know that I will continue to improve my professional capabilities.
