PHYSICAL THERAPIST BIO

Emily McLellan joined NPT as a therapist in the Summer of 2018, but practically grew up in the clinic! She graduated from Clarkson with a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in May 2018 with clinical internships in outpatient, acute care, neurologic  rehabilitation settings, and received certification from the American Institute of Balance for concussion rehabilitation in January 2018.
