ROSS ANDERSON
Clinic Owner/Physical Therapist


Education/Certification:

Ross has a Biology degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, CA and a Masters degree in physical therapy from Chapman University in Orange, CA.

Experience:

Ross has more than 18 years of experience in outpatient orthopedic physical therapy.

According to Ross:

“I like to work with all ages of patients and find satisfaction learning from all generations. It really gets fun when you have an older patient motivating and pushing a younger teen.”

On a personal note:

“I have a lovely wife and we are blessed with two beautiful daughters. I have a passion for running and achieved one of my life-long goals by running the Boston marathon in 2000. I enjoy tennis, hiking, skiing and most other outdoor activities. Being a homeowner has baptized me into “do-it-yourself” carpentry and I have learned many tips. One is that you need the right tool to get the job done right (at least that’s what I tell my wife to justify buying another tool).”

“I enjoy working with patients of all ages and helping them to get moving and return to the activities they love. With my background in running and sports, I like working with those trying to get back to the big game/race. Whether it’s playing a pickup game with some friends and family, or running a marathon.”

On a personal note:

“I am a new resident to Washington, and have been loving every bit of it. I am an avid runner and swimmer, and I enjoy hiking, basketball, soccer, and just about any other sport/outdoor activity. I am always ready to explore new things, and am excited to see all that Washington has to offer.”
