Estelle’s Answer

I'm not a PT, but I am a physician and surgeon and work with PTs all the time! I think that they provide a very valuable service to the community with their skill set and get to build a relationship with their patients. Because of these factors, PT's tend to be very positive and supportive of eachother. I think that PTs are a vital part of the healthcare team and I wish you the best!

Cheryl’s Answer

Totally depends on the setting you work in.
keep in mind that this job involves staying up and active on your feet the whole time unlike desk jobs.
Therapy environments are usually dynamic, involves talking to your clients, demonstrating and supervising exercises and printing educational materials for them.

Brittany’s Answer

The answer will vary so much from one setting to another. I think it's generally safe to say it's busy and active. Depending what type of setting you work in, you may work totally 1 on 1 with patients, or have multiple patients at one time. My work place is energrtic, enthusiastic, and very supportive. We work as a team to help our patients do their best and everyone is encouraging.
