The rehabilitation team consists of Tony Tassone (registered physiotherapist and managing partner), Tim Blundon (registered physiotherapist), and Jessica Carson (registered kinesiologist). Each professional is a member in good standing with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario and the College of Kinesiologists of Ontario respectively. In addition, we have physiotherapy assistants who, under the direct supervision of a physiotherapist, help to implement the treatment plan for patients. We all bring a vast array of knowledge, experience and specialized skills to the team that has collectively allowed us to become a long standing, reliable, well established, and respected physiotherapy clinic.
As members of the healthcare community, we try to share our expertise by offering learning opportunities through the provision of student placements at all educational levels (high school cooperative education, college diploma, and university degree programs).
