Emilio Lasam, Physical Therapist
What is the essence of what you do?
As a physical therapist, I aim to empower patients and clients to develop the competence and knowledge to heal their bodies through movement and physical therapy. It is my duty to help patients perform wide range of activities associated with their own specific goals and lifestyle.
What are some of your personal interest outside of work?
My lifelong dream is to visit and explore countries and cultures around the world. I love travelling as it opens up opportunities to learn about people from different parts of the world. Travelling also helps open my mind to different perspective, allowing me to stay grounded as a human being.
What are some of the things you believe in? It can be a favorite quote or words of wisdom, etc.— something that identifies you.
“Do things that feed your soul, not your ego”
What do you like most about working for this organization?
The whole team of Restore Plus works well together towards the same goal–to help the patients get better. Nothing beats a team with the same virtues and values. And I found it here at Restore Plus!
What do you like most about caring for patients?
To be part of their healing journey is really the best feeling in the world.
Why did you choose to become a physical therapist?
Growing up, I’ve always wanted a career that helps people. I found out about Physical Therapy through the internet, and I fell in love with it ever since. Sharing special moments with the patient as they take their first step, or reach overhead, or climb stairs again is something that you cannot find in any other careers out there.
What do you think your patients like about you? And your organization?
Patients love that they are treated with respect and empathy here at Restore Plus. That we understand their challenges, pains, struggles, and we are here to help.
