Compassionate ... Advanced ... One-on-One Care for Effective Results

EMPT Staff

Mark and Cheryl Fowler opened their first clinic in Moriarty during August of 1995. They were already East Mountain residents and it made sense to work close to home. They expanded to Edgewood in 2005 and Cedar Crest in 2006. Each visit includes quality time with a licensed physical or occupational therapist who will direct your treatment and provide hands-on care during each visit. The physical therapy technicians who assist the therapists are all very experienced and friendly, and you will be treated with respect and utmost attention from the time you walk in the door. Here's a look at our staff:
