I started PT after a car accident. The staff was extremely helpful not just with injuries from the accident, but also other issues that had been bothering me. They are very good at communicating problems and solutions and are friendly to boot. Can’t recommend enough.
Attentive, responsive, pleasant in communication, knowledgeable staff. I got good results in a short time. Thankful to Dr. Andrew for useful information and for a program of exercises.
Doug Free, the manager at Mercer Island Physical Therapy, has a PhD in PT, and is an amazing diagnostic doctor who explains why a specific injury occurred. He also does fabulous work on your body. His entire staff is knowledgeable and excellent therapists.
I saw Anne at 7 weeks post ulnar nerve transposition. I’ve made more progress in 1 week with her than I did in those first 7. She is extremely knowledgeable and up to date on current research. I’d feel very good about sending my family and friends her way!
Kelly is amazing! I felt very comfortable and she asked all of the right questions, was super friendly, and knows exactly how to help. I always leave feeling so much better, and confident that if I do my exercises, I will heal!

Kaitlynn graduated from Green River Community College with an Associate’s Degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant in June 2017. Before beginning her career with OrthoSport, she worked as a travel PTA, which she says was very fun and challenging. She is from a small town in Eastern Washington that she returns to each year to help help her father with farm cherries. Through that experience, she learned a lot about work ethic. She is very passionate about working with patients of all types. Athletes in particular are her favorites, as she has participated in sports since she was 8 years old. That being said, she obtained her fair share of injuries and became good friends with her physical therapist in high school. She became a PTA because she wanted to help people in the same way that her PT had helped her over the years. In her free time, Kaitlynn likes hiking, rock climbing, farming, visiting family, and exploring Seattle with her sister.
