As a physical therapist, Michael enjoys helping patients solve problems in ways they never thought were possible, as well as teaching both patients and physical therapy students. He has benefited from strong mentorship during the course of his career, and gets great satisfaction in passing that knowledge on to students just beginning their journey. Michael believes that the field of medicine is really a lifelong quest of knowledge & discovery that never ends.

Aside from mentoring students in the clinic as a clinical instructor, during his residency he had the pleasure of assisting Dr. Maria Meigel, PT, DPT, OCS, CFMT, CSCS in instructing both Cervicothoracic Integration (CTI) and Lumbopelvic Integration at Touro College.
