  • Bachelor of Science, Clinical Health Sciences, University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL

  • Orthopedic Certified Specialist

  • Titleist Performance Institute Certified Medical Provider for Golfers

Greg grew up in South Florida playing baseball and enjoying the outdoors. He received his Bachelor's in Health Sciences from the University of Central Florida in 2015. He then went on to the University of Miami where he obtained his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2015. Following grad school, Greg completed a post-grad residency to specialize in orthopedic physical therapy to have greater ability and more specific skill set, including advanced manual therapy techniques for helping his patients return from injury and resume their sport/activity. Following residency Greg stayed within the University of Miami health system as a clinical staff PT as well as an adjunct faculty member teaching orthopedic and sports PT residents. 

In 2018, Greg became the clinic coordinator of a privately owned, outpatient ortho clinic in Davie, Florida where he honed his skills treating athletes from youth levels to professional ranks including pros from MLB and the NFL. Specifically, he gained a great deal of experience treating baseball players and helping them return to throwing and get back on the field following shoulder and elbow injuries. 


Greg has also worked a great deal with golfers in helping to decrease pain and deficiencies in mobility and strength that may be limiting their performance on the course. He is a certified Medical Provider by the Titleist Performance Institute and helping this population has become a real passion of his!

Greg and his family recently relocated to St. Augustine and decided he wanted to provide his new community with a better option for managing musculoskeletal health. After spending years treating athletes and helping them return to sports after injury while enhancing performance in the traditional physical therapy model, Greg aims at evolving how patients are cared for and consistently keeps his patients' goals as the main focus. At Movement Driven, we concentrate on listening to our clients' wants and needs in order to help them achieve their specific goals through our one-on-one movement-based approach.
