Get to Know Your Physical Therapist, Justin Feldman!June 7, 2020
We are all really excited about being back in the office, and the ability to see everyone in person again. Over these last few weeks and months of doing only telehealth appointments, you have invited us into your homes, which has been an amazing experience for all of us. We have gotten to meet your spouses, your kids, and your pets! We thought it would be fun to give you a little lens into the side of us that you don’t often get to see, and so over the next couple of weeks, our blog is going to be dedicated to helping you learn a little bit more about us! Up next is John!
John Nunez, PT, DPT
Where Did You Grow Up – Fishkill, NY
First Injury You Can Remember – Serious one? Concussion when I was 15 that put me in the hospital. I still don’t remember the ambulance ride from the ski slope to the hospital. I just remember waking up in the CT scan machine.
What Made You Want To Become a PT – Rehabbing that hamstring. I met one of my teammates growing up and he was an aide applying for PT school. I was unaware of that and it seemed like a perfect fit for me. Healthcare, hands-on, orthopedic settings etc. I enrolled to finish my prereqs the next day.
Other Profession You Would Choose If Not PT – Teacher/coach
What is one thing most people don’t know about you – I used to attend a sleep-away horse camp when I was younger.
