Orlando joined the Tidewater Physical Therapy team in 2012 after graduating from the State University of New York at Stony Brook with a bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences with a concentration in Health Care Management. After earning his undergraduate degree, he immediately returned to his alma mater to complete physical therapy school, ultimately earning his Doctorate of Physical Therapy.
“I’ve always been interested in exercise and wellness,” Orlando said, “I was looking for a profession in healthcare that could help people, and had always been interested in the way we move and the mobility of the human body.”
As a former high school tennis player himself, Orlando enjoys treating recreational athletes, specifically, patients who play any variety of racquet sports.
As Clinical Director, Orlando will continue to treat patients, but will also oversee the management of the clinic, its clinical team and will spend more time in the community participating in speaking engagements (community education seminars) and instructional sessions with school systems.
“I’m most excited about having the accountability of making a difference in the clinic and its future,” he said. “I’m looking forward to having a bigger hand, not only in the treatment of patients, but the clinic as a whole.”
The Red Mill Clinic offers comprehensive physical therapy outpatient services as well as a variety of specialized treatment options, including an orthopedic clinical specialist, a temporomandibular disorder treatment program, dry needling, vestibular rehabilitation, and balance and fall prevention programs.
