Our Team Members

A total of over 185 professional and support staff are employed by POA to assist with your care. This includes 25 physicians, 17 orthopaedic surgeons, 5 physiatrists (physical medicine doctors), and 3 podiatrists.

All of our 16 physical and occupational therapists are experienced and fully licensed, and our practice does not rely on physical therapy aides or ancillary care for therapy, unlike many practices. Many have advanced degrees in therapy, and occupational therapy is also in-house.
