Meet the Staff
Jeff is a native of the Puget Sound, raised in the Everett and Mukilteo area most of his life until recently moving to Lake Stevens. He received his Bachelors of Science degree in Exercise Physiology and Masters in Physical Therapy from the University Puget Sound. Graduating in 1990 Jeff began practice in outpatient orthopedics, developing a strong interest in manual therapy and biomechanics of overuse injuries related to running. Early in his career, he completed a two-year advanced manual therapy residency with the Ola Grimsby Institute. Jeff continued to pursue specialization in lower quarter movement and gait analysis for more than two decades, including casting and construction of orthotics. “At some point I realized so many of the chronic tendinitis, degenerative hip and knee pathologies were highly influenced from the ground up.” –Jeff Carlson Jeff’s practice and client base have flourished over the past 26 years at Bellevue Physical Therapy, developing many lifelong physician and patient relationships that come from a very hands-on, high customer service approach. Jeff has now decided to continue his career with a new pursuit starting REACTION Physical Therapy in Arlington, expanding the North end RET Physical group, which now includes REACTION Physical Therapy at Lake Stevens and Smokey Point.

I have been working as a certified athletic trainer for one year. I have worked in several different settings such as the high school and collegiate setting as well as the clinical setting. Having a variety of settings worked in has allowed me to gain knowledge of the different ways healthcare providers practice and I have incorporated these skills into the way I treat athletes to provide the best possible outcomes. Having played sports my entire life, I am passionate about making sure my athletes and patients are able to get back to the activities as quick as possible. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree Athletic Training from Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC.

Hear what other RET Physical Therapy patients have to say.
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!
Michelle has been amazing to work with. She quickly diagnosed the root cause of the issues that continued to plague me after recovering from hip replacement surgery that other PT’s (different companies) could not. She listens, is creative, resourceful, and very knowledgeable. Everyone at the clinic is always very professional and interested in our progress.
I have been going to Summit Therapy for a shoulder problem. I’ve made steady progress and have gotten much pain relief. The staff is very friendly and great to work with. I recently had a sudden problem of vertigo. My therapist knew exactly what to do and performed a treatment that stopped the dizziness.
