Bio: Robert Snow, PT, DPT, OCS, ATC, CSCS
Robert Snow feels that the practice of physical therapy should be more about the patient care and less about the constant battle with the insurance companies. His passion is to assist private practice owners in finding that time freedom and making decisions that will give them the freedom of time they desire. He uses this mix of physical therapy knowledge and business leadership training to reach new goals with his coaching clients, department managers, and staff. Robert got his DPT from USC in 2002 and his OCS in 05, he’s also a certified ATC and CSCS. He’s been appointed to the APTA orthopedic specialty council.
