Ryan has been practicing in Gillette since 2008 after graduating from the University of North Dakota with his clinical doctorate in physical therapy. Since that time, Ryan has provided expert-level rehabilitative care in neurologic and vestibular rehabilitation. Through research, teaching, and vast clinical experience, Ryan has become Wyoming’s only Board Certified Neurologic Clinical Specialist and recognized nationally as an expert clinician in vestibular rehabilitation. Although his clinical passion is vestibular and neurologic rehabilitation, his true passion is serving others.
Ryan is driven to improve the current state of medicine to promote optimal patient service. Whether serving on state or national professional committees, advocating for improved healthcare through legislation, or educating colleagues and the community, he is motivated in service. Most importantly, he steadfastly believes in creating partnerships with each patient he treats and is well known for always being a phone call away. He is deeply appreciative of every patient providing the opportunity to practice, and genuinely enjoys interaction with every patient he has the chance to serve.
Ryan and his beautiful wife Nicole have four children with a wide array of interests, and actively seek opportunities to enjoy beautiful Wyoming through any number of adventures, as well as serve our incredible community.
