William Lee, PT, DPT

Hi, I’m Dr. William Lee.

As a physical therapist, my goal is to help my patients achieve independence and higher functioning as quickly as possible. I believe that the road to health and recovery is best done by viewing the individual as a whole person with unique goals and limitations. With this understanding, I assess patients to develop effective treatment programs tailored to each individual, which address the source of the problem and the dysfunctional movement pattern. For example, an adolescent athlete and a retired golfer, even with the same type of injury, will undergo different treatment protocols, including different intensity of targeted manual therapies and different ranges of exercise. I have experience helping a variety of populations, each with their unique limitations, to overcome their pain and movement dysfunctions. They include runners, aspiring and professional athletes, adaptive sports teams, people with amputations, and anyone who moves.
