"It is essential to provide continuity of care from the four walls of the traditional clinic onto the patient's environment either being work or home.  Seeing the patients in the clinic and transitioning them back to their environment is vital to a full recovery."

 Kris Vanderwall, DPT

I was born and raised just outside of Seattle, WA (GO SEAHAWKS!).  I followed in my father and mother's footsteps in going into healthcare (and specifically) PT field.   Academically, I have a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and received my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. My healthcare experience has ranged from working with an EMT license in the field and an ER in the Seattle area, to multiple settings in Physical Therapy all of which I believe help me provide care to people with varying diagnoses.  I am into an active and healthy lifestyle which I promote to patients along with giving them excellent care.  kris.vanderwall@hops1.com
