Clinic Director, PTA – New London

Originally from the Basque region of Spain, I played professional Jai-Alai for 18 years prior to pursuing my PTA degree. I received my degree as a Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA) from Housatonic Community College, where I awarded with the graduating Class of 2000 PTA Leadership Award.

I was also awarded with Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Other recognition/awards include Employee of the Year award at St. Francis Hospital.I’ve been with Carlson Procare for over two decades.

My core values are honesty, loyalty, hard work, and teamwork.

In my role at the company, I am dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of orthopedic issues and sports medicine conditions. My expertise encompasses a wide range of musculoskeletal disorders, focusing on bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. I am particularly skilled in assisting athletes and individuals with sports-related injuries or orthopedic challenges, ensuring optimal care and recovery guidance. I have a special interest in treating extremity conditions, especially those involving the shoulder. I am committed to transforming the physical therapy experience for my patients, who often come with pain, fear, and doubt, into a positive and trust-filled journey towards a confident and pain-free recovery.

I enjoy the great staff, company’s vision and patient population. Carlson Procare has become my second family.

Patient Testimonials

The best Physical Therapist I have ever encounter. They are caring, treat it’s patient with dignity and respect. Can’t ask for a better group of therapist in the area. I have only had to deal with two therapist (they are genuinely kind and caring people), at the Shaw’s Cove site. Their logo about caring is not mere words but truthful, the aids are also helpful and pleasant. Great Teamwork! May God bless all of them.

I have used Carlson Procare for a previous injury and the staff was absolutely superb. They do a great job assessing your needs, your strengths and your weaknesses. Along with giving you the tools to help you return to a normal life. They really take good care of you. I have previously returned for their assistance in helping me through a serious fall which involves several injuries. There are truly right on top of it.

This is the to go place for physical therapy. From the receptionist to the therapists is completely professional. My daughter had a fantastic experience with great results and so far my experience is the same. I cannot say enough about Carlson Procare -New London.
