Dr. Mandler, a Miami native, has always had an inspiration to pursue a career in physical therapy. Growing up playing Lacrosse at both the high school and collegiate level, Dr. Mandler has had his fair share of injuries. He knows what it takes to recover from an injury, and how to prevent them from occurring. Having recovered from a serious shoulder injury that required surgery, Dr. Mandler grew to appreciate both the importance and impact a good physical therapist could have on the rehab process. From that point forward, Dr. Mandler knew that he wanted to have that same impact on others. This is why he formed Mandler PT.
