Benjamin Fontes, PTA

PHYSICAL THERAPY ASSISTANT

A strong dislike of accounting led Ben quickly fleeing from obtaining a degree in business to stumbling across the field of physical therapy. Pair that with a love for sports and fitness, Ben knew becoming a PTA was a perfect match. He originally pursued a career in physical therapy with a special interest working in acute rehab, however, quickly fell in love with the outpatient orthopedic setting along his physical therapy journey. He has experience working with people of all age groups and shares the same goals as his patients’ – to return them to their active lifestyles prior to injury.

Ben finds empathy to be one of the most beneficial communication skills for a healthcare professional, as he sees its importance in eliciting therapeutic change. Ben finds it important for health professionals to understand people’s feelings, opinions and experiences in order to assess their real needs and act accordingly.

Ben is currently enjoying his time as a newlywed and as a newcomer to the PNW area. He loves traveling, playing ice hockey, hiking, and spending time with his dog Brody.  He loves his hometown teams from Arizona and hopes to be accepted amongst the vast sea of Hawks fans (Go Cards)!
