What is the essence of what you do?
To promote life. I believe I help people who are suffering from pain and/or injury. I help people improve or regain their quality of life. And I am very fortunate that people appreciate all my effort and hard work.
What are some of your personal interests, outside of work?
I enjoy playing basketball, bowling, working out and practicing taekwondo. I also enjoy watching baseball. To relax I like to watch movies and being with my family. Computers and electronics catch my attention as well.
What are things you believe in?
I believe in giving your best in everything that you do. This way, at the end of the day, I know I tried my best and I have no regrets. Most especially when caring for people, I always try my best because I will want others to do the same if I am on the other side of the fence.
What do you like most about working for Restore Plus Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation?
I like having the freedom to do what I think is right for the patients. It is not all about the money or the bottom line. It is about caring for people. And working with a group of people who share the same values is very enjoyable. And the appreciation from patients make it very rewarding.
What do you like most about caring for patients?
The feeling that you have helped someone get better, seeing and knowing that you have helped improve their quality of life- that is priceless. It is a great feeling knowing that you made a difference in someone’s life.
Why did you choose to become a physical therapist?
Having the chance to improve someone’s quality of life, that is the main reason why I am a Physical Therapist. People can be alive but still they are unhappy or suffering. I don’t think this is living. As a physical therapist, I have the ability to help them enjoy their life.
What do you think patients like most about you? And your organization?
I often hear the words “conscientious” and “hands-on” as words that patients describe me as. I always try to do what is right for the patient and I am very much involved in their care. I don’t want them to feel like they are in a factory. And as the owner, I believe the company is an extension of who I am.
