Rick is an ABC-certified prosthetist/orthotist with more than a decade of experience in the field.
Rick specializes in prosthetic care for all ages, from pediatrics to geriatrics, and truly enjoys the challenge of working with patients to restore independence in their lives. His approach centers on creating care plans as unique as the individuals he treats.
Rick attended Pennsylvania State University, University Park Campus, on a United States Navy ROTC scholarship. After receiving his Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, he entered the U.S. Navy where he enjoyed the honor and privilege of serving. Upon completing his service, Rick worked with special populations as an exercise professional where he built a foundation for helping people achieve optimal health. This newfound passion ultimately led him to the field of orthotics and prosthetics (O&P), and he never looked back.
After earning his post-graduate certificate in O&P from the distinguished Newington Program, Rick began his career as a prosthetist and later received his master’s degree in O&P from the University of Hartford. He now practices as a certified prosthetist/orthotist at select Hanger Clinic locations in Pennsylvania and Delaware.
Outside of work, Rick enjoys hiking, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, playing with his children, and home improvement projects.
