Aaron received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Ithaca College in 2013. While attending Ithaca he minored in Exercise Science and Coaching with a concentration in Athletic Training. He also rowed on Ithaca Colleges crew team where he received the novice hustle award his freshman year; senior year he received the Robert B. Tallman outstanding oarsman award and was also a Captain. Before joining the Dansville staff he gained physical therapy experience in acute and subacute rehab and inpatient hospital acute care on a cardio/pulmonary care unit, dementia care unit, and medical intensive care unit. Aaron found his passion for physical therapy in outpatient orthopedic clinics where he had the opportunity to learn advanced manual therapy techniques. He had the opportunity to study under our Pittsford-Mendon Clinical Director Dustin who is a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist. Aaron hopes to as well become a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist and additionally specialize in peripheral nervous system pathologies and the shoulder complex.

I enjoy coming into work everyday and using a hands on manual therapy approach to help make patients goals a reality.
