PT, Clinic Director | IRG Physical Therapy – Camano Island

The best part of my job is getting to know patients beyond just their injury. People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

Ben’s goal is to get you back to work, back in the game or back to whatever it is that you love!  He has been successfully doing so for 22 years.  Ben's treatment style is to first make sure you understand the nature of your injury, condition, disease or dysfunction and then together work a plan designed to overcome it.  Ben enjoys working with patients of all ages.  He utilizes manual therapy, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, taping techniques, therapeutic exercise, and home program instruction to help patients restore normal function. To relax, Ben enjoys boating, scuba diving, playing guitar, and working in the yard.
