I believe that sometimes it is the little things that can make a huge difference in a person’s life. I find it rewarding to hear that a patient has enjoyed their experience at Pantops Physical Therapy and that their pain has also diminished. I enjoy making a connection with patients and forming long lasting relationships.

Having the opportunity to work in a variety of medical settings, I have learned through my peers both medical treatment techniques as well as the importance of relationships between patients and co-workers.  It is great to give, but only better to receive.  Helping others, no matter what the task, brings us only closer to better patient care as a team.Jennifer Collins, MS ATC
