Physical Therapists work with Cardiac patients?
PT's are the most qualified because we have the proper medical training along with expert exercise knowledge.
Jeremy Voorhees PT CCS, CCRP
Founder of Cardio Physical Therapy PLLC Certified Cardiopulmonary Specialist in Physical Therapy APTA Certified Cardiac Rehabilitation Professional through AACVPR
I have been practicing Physical Therapy for 21 years in various areas of rehabilitation. I've traveled around the country working as a travel therapist. This provided exposure to many health systems and areas of medicine. I settled back in Buffalo in 2009, where I have been working for a large healthcare industry in the area. In 2013, I had the opportunity to develop a cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation program.
I currently sit on the board of the NYSACVPR (New York State Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation) serving as President for two and half years. I obtained a National accreditation in the field of cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation as a "Certified CardioPulmonary Rehabilitation Professional" through the AACVPR (American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary of Rehabilitation). I also obtained advanced accreditation in the area of physical therapy with a "Certified Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Specialist in Physical Therapy".
I'm passionate about my work and live to guide people through their journey. I have worked with thousands of patients and have learned how to work effectively with various personalities. I have developed CardioPT so that I can best manage patients without the extra obstacles that have gotten in the way of good treatment.
I am happily married and a father of three boys who are very active and keep my wife and I on our toes. I'm involved within the community donating many hours to coaching youth baseball, basketball and scouts.
