Physical Therapist

(716) 458-1990

Graduated from: Daemen College
Degree: Doctor of Physical Therapy

Chris was born and raised in Depew, NY, where he currently resides. He graduated from Daemen College in 2018, earning his Doctorate of Physical Therapy. He started his career with Buffalo Rehab Group shortly after.

Like many in the profession, Chris’s interest in Physical Therapy started with a personal injury — a broken ankle while in the eighth grade. After attending Physical Therapy, Chris returned to sports and also knew he would one day become a Physical Therapist. He enjoys treating baseball- and other sport-related injuries, as well as getting to know the unique stories of his patients.

Outside of work, Chris loves spending time exploring Buffalo — whether it’s hiking trails or trying new restaurants. He also enjoys playing slow-pitch softball, fantasy football, and spending time with his family, friends, and wife, Molly. He is a self-identified “Bills Die Hard” fan.
