Wes is a 1997 graduate of the Master in Physical Therapy program from The University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston/UT-El Paso Cooperative Program. His undergraduate studies earned him completion of a BS in Healthcare Administration. He has worked primarily in the Acute Care/Long Term Acute Care settings, both in clinical and management positions. In 2013, he ventured out of the hospital setting and into the Private Practice world. While the learning curve has been steep, Wes has managed to build a stable practice with referrals ranging from wound care to pain management to generalized weakness/debility for the elderly.
Currently, Wes works half of his week in the outpatient setting with an orthopaedic and sports medicine emphasis and the other half of the week in the Skilled Nursing Facility setting. He has successfully integrated the 360/720 model of assessment and practice into both of his current practice settings, and the patient response has been phenomenol.
