About Gary


Bio

Helping students understand Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology is a passion of mine. I graduated with a degree in Physical Therapy from SUNY Stony Brook in 1997, which was followed by completion of a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) in 2003. I am presently a faculty member for Carolinas Rehabilitation's Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency Program. As a faculty member, I serve as a mentor for physical therapy residents and I am the primary instructor for the Soft Tissue Mobilization,...

Helping students understand Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology is a passion of mine. I graduated with a degree in Physical Therapy from SUNY Stony Brook in 1997, which was followed by completion of a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) in 2003. I am presently a faculty member for Carolinas Rehabilitation's Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency Program. As a faculty member, I serve as a mentor for physical therapy residents and I am the primary instructor for the Soft Tissue Mobilization, Hip, and Shoulder classes. I completed my OCS (Board Certified Specialist in Orthopedics) in 2012. In 2015, I became a Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Specialist (Dry Needling).

I have 21+ years of clinical experience, which includes serving as a clinical instructor for students. I have eight years experience teaching and mentoring physical therapy residents. I use props and diagrams to help students understand how the body moves and works. I guide students by helping them problem solve and improve their clinical reasoning skills. Providing clinical examples also helps students relate what they are learning in class to the health care world. In addition to tutoring, I can also offer Job interview preparation, and help prepare those taking the orthopedic clinical specialty examination.

My expertise is in musculoskeletal, neural, and abdominal visceral anatomy. Numerous continuing education courses have prepared me to assist others in identifying and palpating bony landmarks and soft tissue structures.

Please contact me to see if I can assist you in improving your comprehension of these subjects. I will respond quickly to your inquiries. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions or to schedule a lesson.

Knowledgable

Gary is very helpful. He has helped to gain a better understanding in multiple classes for my PT program. He gives very good analogies that help me to connect the information better.

Knowledge and great personality

Gary helped my daughter's study for anatomy and physiology. He was very knowledgeable and his personality was friendly. I look forward to working with him again.

Anna, 3 lessons with Gary

Great!

Once again a very clear, helpful, thoughtful, step by step session where Gary saw exactly what my areas of weakness were and helped clearly and slowly break it down until I could explain it myself. Always done in a patient and fun way! Terrific

Gary is a very nice guy and has a passion for what he does. He taught me about the human anatomy, the muscular system. I highly recommend Gary for any anatomy and physiology students. I will be sure to use him in the future. My test was today and I did great.
