Panayiotis graduated with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Prior to UMDNJ, he received his Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Psychology from Ramapo College of New Jersey.
His personal experiences with orthopedic injuries, interest in the body, and passion for helping people led him to pursue a career in physical therapy. Upon graduation from UMDNJ, he continued his physical therapy education by completing a Manual Therapist Certification (MTC) through Evidence in Motion. While at EIM, he learned the most up to date research and hands-on techniques in patient care with many physical therapy residents and fellows across the country. Panayiotis then went on to become Board Certified by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties as an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS).
Panayiotis enjoys treating patients across all age groups with a variety of injuries. However, he has particular interests in the application of manual therapy techniques and therapeutic interventions in helping patients achieve their personal goals. He was born and raised in Bergen County, and feels fortunate to have the opportunity to help people with functional limitations in his community.
When not working with our clients, he enjoys spending time with his wife, family and friends. Panayiotis and his wife enjoy traveling, especially when they travel to Greece to visit family. In addition, Panayiotis continues to maintain an active lifestyle by running, working out, and playing in a local open men’s soccer league for Vikings FC. He has experience in playing highly competitive soccer at the high school and college level.
