At the Voice of the Patient, we are dedicated to enhancing our ability as health care providers to truly listen to others and to establish a therapeutic alliance. In some cases, we can benefit from listening to the experience and mindset of other providers, such as Dr. Andrew Rothschild. Dr. Rothschild also shares his story as a patient, before and after undergoing lumbar fusion because of spondylolisthesis.
Dr. Andrew Rothschild, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT, has been a practicing physical therapist since graduating with honors from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Allied Health in 2006. He is a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist and is also a Fellow in the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy. He is one of the few residency and fellowship-trained Physical Therapists practicing in the Richmond, VA area.
Dr. Rothschild and I discuss his journey as a patient and health care provider. We also talk about the value of positive attitude, kettlebells, and empathizing with others who seek health care.
