What is your most satisfying therapy experience? “My favorite aspect about physical therapy is when I or my colleagues show a patient that one simple stretch or exercise that can keep the pain away. Or when someone has the most common form of vertigo and after 1 or 2 sessions it is gone - the overwhelming gratitude they share with me and my therapists, after having had symptoms for so long, that’s what makes our job so satisfying.” Where did you study? “I studied 4 years inWits Dental School in South Africa, prior to completing my Physical Therapy degree in 1990.” When did you come to the USA? “Our first child was 7 months old when we emigrated in 1999. We eventually settled in Boca Raton in 2001 where I established my one man PT practice.” Why did you decide to establish Preferred Physical Therapy in 2006? “I have always been passionate about helping others, and when I saw the lack of individualized care in therapy field, I decided to incorporate all forms of therapy (including occupational and speech therapy) into my practice. We now have a team of 11 therapists, and our motto is ‘We treat all our patients as if they’re family.’” What do you enjoy doing in your free time? “Aside from work, I enjoy playing tennis and golf, as well as spending time with my wife and two daughters.”

What stands out in your mind about your Deerfield facility? ”Over the 17 years in my local practice, I together with my 10 therapists, have been very fortunate to treat thousands of local residents from Boca, Deerfield, Parkland, and Coconut Creek. Some have even come from Hollywood and North Miami to see our therapists. More recently, this past year we have helped professional tennis players, a former NHL ice hockey player and coach, and even a NY Giant football line-backer.” • Patient Success Spotlight • Interview From Our CEO • Back Pain Prevention • Discover How To Live Pain Free
