Patient Care Coordinators and Physical Therapy Technicians
At Fremont Therapy Group, not only do we have highly trained therapists, but our care begins the moment you walk through our doors. We pride ourselves on making the patient experience comprehensive and welcoming from your first appointment through to recovery. Our Patient Care Coordinators (PCC) and Physical Therapy Technicians (PTT) are invaluable support staff.
These invaluable people are the first point of patient contact and ensure patients feel welcome, comfortable, and part of our caring team. Please take a moment to learn more about our outstanding PCCs and PTTs who will work with you every step of the way.
