Dr. Ryan Boggs

impact eweb ryanDr. Ryan Boggs is originally from Niagara Falls, NY and decided to pursue a career in Physical Therapy following a knee injury during a hockey tryout in high school. He attended physical therapy for some time afterwards and was amazed with the human body and the rehabilitation process. The patient experience is important to Ryan because Physical Therapy is one of the few health care professions that allows him to spend quality time with his patients and their families. He appreciates the opportunity to work closely with each patient to achieve their personal and clinical goals. Ryan selected Advanced Care Physical Therapy because of the best in class care he witnessed while completing a clinical rotation as part of the Daemen College DPT Program. As a student, he was impressed by the overall reputation, and a commitment to giving back to the community. Also as a student, he was able to develop a solid foundation for his future clinical rotations and current clinical knowledge because of the education he received from the skilled staff at Advanced Care Physical Therapy.

Ryan has been a tremendous asset since joining the Advanced Care Physical Therapy and brings a unique perspective of research and understanding the patient experience.  Dr. Andrew Willis
