Raymond Hammel PT DPT MS
Ray had an active early childhood growing up in a very big family (1 of 8 kids), in the very small town of Attica, NY. A baseball glove, soccer ball, frisbee, football, tennis racket, or basketball were never far away as a kid raised in a competitive household.
He moved to his Mother’s childhood Town of Tonawanda home just before high school, graduated from Kenmore East (’93) and then Daemen College (’97), and loved it so much he still lives there today!
Personal interests include traveling, family time at the beach or on vacation, raising two (now not so young) daughters with his wife Sue, cuddling with our dog, playing softball, and home improvements.
Ray looks after the financial side of the business in his partner role, but still enjoys working with patients of all types as he has with BRG since 1998. Special areas of focus include vestibular therapy (for dizziness), and the use of manual therapy techniques to help accelerate PT progress and help minimize chronic issues for patients. He has also contributed to clinical research and frequently provides instruction to the next generation of physical therapists.
