Meet Ericka Maldonado, DPT

Philosophy of Care

My interest in physical therapy stemmed from following the rehab journey of one of my favorite basketball players after an ACL injury. I strive as a therapist to provide compassionate high quality care to all people. I listen to each patient and try to really understand what it is they need from me and how I can guide them to get to where they want to be. Always prioritizing educating my patients so they feel confident in taking control of their rehab journey and have the tools to continue being successful when PT is over.  I like to encourage and celebrate each success and goal met along the way together.

Personal Interests

In my free time, I enjoy live music and explore new restaurants. I also like to stay active going on hikes, bike rides or playing pickleball. I love to travel whenever I can and go visit friends and family in different places.
