Mark McDermott
Mark grew up in Buffalo and eventually moved out of the city to Springville where he graduated from Springville Griffith Institute. He then attended D’Youville College where he received a Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sports Studies in 2013, and his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2016. While in college, he landed an internship with his favorite team, the Buffalo Bills, in the Strength and Conditioning Department, and he took extra courses to receive an Advanced Orthopedic Certificate. Mark saw how physical therapy was able to help his mother and brother recover from their injuries, and this is what drove him to pursue a career that would enable him to help others. Mark knew right from the beginning of his studies that he wanted to work in an outpatient orthopedic setting and is why he chose to work for Buffalo Rehab Group in August 2016. Mark has played on many sports teams including football, baseball, soccer, basketball, track and field, and swimming, with football being his favorite sport. In Mark’s spare time he enjoys being with friends and family, fishing, cooking, gardening, camping, recreationally playing sports, and learning new things.
