Access to care is one of the central tenets of high-quality cancer rehabilitation. What good is a residency, board certification, etc. if people can’t actually get your care?

Answer: It’s not. It’s worthless.

We’ve talked previously on the podcast about meeting patients where they’re at, improving accessibility, but today’s guest is taking a unique approach that you need to hear.

Dr. Ryan Shelton, PT of PhilanthroPT has curated a healing environment that is truly accessible for patients: not just 7am-7pm hours, accepting a couple Medicaid contracts…truly accessible.

And more importantly, he’s sharing how it’s working & how PhilanthroPT is continuing to provide amazing care even through a lot of ongoing challenges.
