Scott Duncan, DPT
Scott graduated from Creighton University with his Doctorate in Physical Therapy in 2001 and moved to Washington State to start working as a physical therapist. His first job was at Riverside Nursing Home in Centralia, where he first met Dr. Hess and started their mutual respect of patient care. While in Centralia, Scott started working for Foster Farms in Kelso and treated all their work-related injuries. This led to him working for Costco in Tumwater and treating work related injuries there. In 2003, Scott left the Extendicare corporation and opened a new clinic for Physiotherapy Associates as a clinic director providing orthopedic outpatient physical therapy for the patients. Ironically, this was across the parking lot from Dr. Hess' old clinic, which furthered their close relationship with patients. On the weekends Scott started working at Shelton's Mason General Hospital providing hospital care to the patients there. Finally, in February of 2010, Scott started working for Foot & Ankle Surgical Associates. Scott's philosophy consists of providing individual care for each of his patients while providing the highest level of manual therapy and therapeutic exercise. Scott believes it is important to look at the whole patient in incorporating their return to normal activities. Having worked in many, varied physical therapy situations, Scott believes Foot & Ankle Surgical Associates has the best communication between physical therapist and doctors in the area resulting in patients reaching the highest level of clinical outcomes.
