Tim Bivens, PTA

Timothy Bivens is a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant with sixteen years of healthcare experience, including seven enlisted as a Hospital Corpsman in the USN. His enlisted time offered access to a life goal of a career in physical therapy. Thirteen years of using evidence based research has refined his skills of administering efficient therapeutic interventions. Timothy’s inspiration for his empathy toward others is founded in principles taught by his parents, “Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.” Multiple years working in the healthcare industry painted an abstract view of health at the various levels within our healthcare system. Those pictures has guided his interest in combining basic knowledge of body function to the impact that has on our community’s health. The strength of a community is the individual, the individual is the community’s strength.

Mr. Bivens is married to his beautiful wife Patricia and they are proud parents of three beautiful amazing children. Outside of work he enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, hanging out at the beach, cooking, eating (mostly eating), playing games, working out and supporting his children’s various sporting activities.
