Located near Evergreen Hospital in Kirkland, our treatment philosophy is a “hands on” approach with an emphasis on patient education and understanding of his or her condition.

As you improve, your physical therapy exercise program will progress to fit your needs for coordination, balance, endurance and strength training.  You can expect your rehab experience to be unique and allow you to meet your individual goals. We are able to assist you with transitioning from exercise for rehabilitation to exercise for health maintenance, cardiovascular improvement, return to work and enhanced athletic performance.

Our goal with every patient is to return him or her to full functional capabilities and to continue a home program of exercise and a “think before you do” attitude.

“ I love coming each week! Have been coming to Totem Lake PT for years and recommend this place every chance I get. ”-Leslie
“ I have had extensive treatment from Totem Lake RET and the therapist and support staff have helped me to improve my movement physically.  Without their help and patience I would not be able to have as much movement in my lower back and legs.  I would recommend Totem Lake Physical Therapy.  ”-Lois
“ All the staff at Totem Lake PT are amazing.  They know everyone and greet them by name.  The staff is very attentive and personable and make it obvious they care about their patients.  ”-Sheila
“I was scheduled for a double knee replacement on December 31st, and began intensive PT both at Totem Lake and at the Aquatic center. Surgery was a success, and it was not long before I was back  for weekly PT where I continue today. I cannot begin to say how incredible the staff has been at both sites! Lisa Ramos, my talented PT at Totem Lake Physical Therapy and Debbie Huisingh- Doyle at the Aquatic Center are fantastic. Everytime I walk in, it's like walking into Cheers (minus the alcohol of course)! All of the staff greets me by name, tells me how great I look and how well I am doing. Talk about a huge spirit lifter! They continue to motivate me to push harder and remember where I was, where I am now- and to keep looking forward! I often feel like the Little Engine that could- "I think I can, I think I can, I know I can!" This is all because of the entire staff at Totem Lake and the Aquatic Center. I am deeply grateful.”-Bobbie
