Dr. Donny Chan received his Bachelor of Science from Stony Brook University and received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the School of Health Sciences at Touro College in New York City.

Donny’s clinical experience has involved working with a myriad of orthopedic and neurological dysfunctions.

When working with individuals with neurological dysfunctions, he incorporates the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) model when identifying areas of activity limitations that can be addressed with specific therapeutic interventions to maximize participation with daily activities.
