Jeremy Smuckler is an athlete, like so many of the best PTs. He has real empathy for what active people go through when they can’t perform in their favorite sport, train vigorously, or just get a workout at the gym.
That’s why he’s totally on board with the Orthology mission—to get people back to doing what they love. He really can’t imagine not being able to play some hoops!
Jeremy earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Stony Brook University. Friends and family characterize him as patient, which is a great trait to possess when you’re a caregiver. It takes patience helping patients through the recovery process. He knows it’s so important to develop strong relationships with every one he treats, always engaged in ongoing communication.
Because of his record of successful treatment outcomes, he knows that fostering an atmosphere of trust and open dialogue is the key to getting patients on a path to long-term health, free of pain or worry about reinjuring themselves.
Like many at Orthology, Jeremy is naturally empathetic, and it’s clear that he’s passionate about being a caregiver. This is a healthcare professional with real determination. His focus is on the physical, but being a patient guy comes in to play. He understands—intuitively—that great treatment is also an emotional journey. A genuine sense of calm, unhurried communication and perserverance—all these help make him an inspiring practitioner.
What drives him to help patients? We love Jeremy’s straightforward answer: “Doing the best work possible.”
When not working, Jeremy loves sports, hiking and reading. And the Mets, of course!
