Physical Therapists Near Stanford, California

We are often asked for referrals to physical therapists (PTs) knowledgeable about Parkinson's Disease (PD) in our geographic area. Here's a list of some PTs we have heard about or know. We always suggest people ask members of their local Parkinson's support group to get recommendations.

Of course the details below may change from time to time, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and other factors. You must re-confirm all details with the professionals listed.  FYI - DPT is a doctor of physical therapy.
