Jonathan is a motivated physical therapist looking to create a healthy therapeutic alliance with patients through quality care. He graduated with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Touro College in 2016 and had been working in New York prior to becoming a UIC Orthopaedic Resident. While in New York, Jonathan started as a staff physical therapist treating musculoskeletal injuries in an outpatient clinic for 2 years before eventually transitioning into a clinical director role. He has decided to pursue this residency in order to refine his skills as a therapist and to venture into academia. Outside of the clinic, Jonathan enjoys running, playing tennis, and watching Netflix. Being new to the city of Chicago, he is welcome to any places to explore as well as food recommendations!
