About Us

We are a small and innovative physical therapy clinic that has been established for 10 years. We currently employ 7 people who work as physical therapists, personal trainers administrative and IT staff. The founder of the company is a physical therapist and an instructor for several national seminars and courses. She has grown this clinic from a sole proprietorship to the corporation it is today, and the company is now attracting national attention from other leaders in the field for the innovative approach to healthcare and wellness.

Much of this growth has happened because of the incredible team at Peak Performance Care Physical Therapy.

And simultaneously, we provide a place that our patients look forward to coming back to time and time again.

  • Develop a mutually beneficial relationship that benefits both the client and the clinic
  • Communicate the value of our service with the fee that the client will need to pay for it

  • Provide a high level of customer care that will cause clients to want to come back and tell their friends and family about us as well
  • Ensure that clients coming for free taster/discovery visits or other giveaway sessions convert to a full PT Initial Evaluation or an Initial Consultation with a trainer (when appropriate)

  • Participate in, contribute to, and help develop the in-house educational training program that we want to offer all members of our Provider Team
  • Ensure a streamlined collaboration of necessary providers within the building when facilitating referrals for other services, with the expectation that the client walks away thinking that it was easy and efficient

Measurable Outcomes

  • These measures are a direct reflection of how much we have helped clients in their first 1-2 visits:
  • Conversion ratio from free discovery sessions to initial evaluation greater than 80%
  • Conversion from first session to full plan of care greater than 90%
  • This measure assists in telling us how well we did as a team in communicating the value of our recommended plan of care (and/or how effective we were at keeping the care relevant to their internal problem):
  • Completed plan of care ratio greater than 95%
  • To ensure maximum team efficiency and less repetitive workload:
  • Less than 1% of charges entered inaccurately or omitted
  • This measure is a direct reflection of how content our clients are with their experience with us and their willingness to tell others about it:
  • Receive at least 1 5-star review from social media mentioning your name each quarter
  • In an attempt to create interest in our services from all possible sources:
  • Receive at least 1 new direct referral to Physical Therapy each month

These outcomes are for the purposes of growing the company and nurturing your skillset. If the company cannot grow, there are fewer opportunities for everyone associated with it, both employees and clients.
