CEO & Founder

"The PTA Center team members are the ones that create the excellent image of our practice. Our physical therapists are specifically trained and qualified for a wide range of treatments, and we are committed to continuous education and sharing knowledge with each other.

Equally important is the work of our doctors, who provide precise examinations and treatments in their fields. Their many years of experience and motivation to offer the best possible treatments are fundamental to the well-being of our patients.

Our professional and attentive staff will make your visits to the PTA Center pleasant and refreshing."
