Dr. Fitzherbert Harry, DPT, CMTPT, Cert-DN
Doctor of Physical Therapy
Dr. Fitzherbert “Fitz” Harry, a native to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, has always been passionate about helping others since a young age. Dr. Harry began his career as a biology and math teacher in high school and university settings. After earning is doctorate in Physical Therapy he eventually became disappointed in the current healthcare model. He believes that patients should be treated like family, not just as a typical patient. It was because of his desire to get away from the more common “physical therapy mill” approach that he started his own business, Harry Physical Therapy and Wellness, LLC. Here, unlike any other mobile practices in Florida, the patient comes first, they are part of every step in goal-setting. And, with Dr. Harry’s support they progress faster, and in the convenience of their own home.
Fitz’s experience with teaching has transferred over in his way to adapt his methods to people of all different learning types. His passion for health and fitness inspire his patients. His love of science and learning means that he is constantly keeping up with the very best evidence-based practice research. By doing so, he can improve patients outcomes more quickly and efficiently. Dr. Harry is also certified in BIG therapy: an evidenced based program proven to improve function in Parkinson’s patients. He is also a certified myofascial trigger point therapist helping to target pain in patients. Fitz has done countless educational programs in balance disorders, fall prevention and geriatrics. Fitz fully believes that physical therapy should be engaging and enjoyable. Each session is tailored to patient’s needs and goals.
When Fitz is not practicing physical therapy he enjoys watching sports, tending to his garden, exercising, and spending time with his lovely wife.
