Patient Care Philosophy:

Tekekee believes that a strong patient-provider relationship impacts the quality of care and improves patient outcomes. This can be accomplished by simply listening to the members concerns, the provider taking the time to explain what needs to be done and discussing how a particular medical decision can improve the members outcome. She believes that these simple acts can help to foster trust in the provider and increases patient satisfaction.


How I stay well:

I stay well with exercising, praying, practicing self-care, and laughing. Life can be a roller-coaster. So why not jump in the front seat, put your safety belts on, throw your hands up, smile, and enjoy the ride called life. Life is too short to not find your own personal happiness.

He enjoys treating a variety of conditions but has a special interest in treating orthopedic and sport-related injuries.

Patient Care Philosophy:

Ricky believes that his most important role in any injury is to guide and educate his patients. He constantly assesses response to care to ensure the most efficient path to healing. He knows he cannot do this alone and physical therapy is always a team effort with the patient. He almost always gives a comprehensive home exercise program so his patients can progress even when not in formal physical therapy sessions.

How I stay well:

To stay well Ricky uses many different activities. His top three are riding his bike through the trails near his home, going to car shows and relaxing at a bon fire with music.

How I stay well:

I enjoy cooking, grilling and smoking foods as part of my balanced diet which includes wild fish, wild game, and other quality protein, with plenty of vegetables both cooked and raw. I also like spending time with my family – hiking in the outdoors, fishing, golf, archery, and tennis.

Family activities and hobbies are my way of dealing with stress, while recharging my batteries at the same time.
