Kyle Wentz, DO

Physical ailments can affect anyone at any stage of life. From participating in sports to spending time with grandchildren, functional limitations can impact our ability to engage in various activities we love. As a Physiatrist, my ultimate goal is to restore function and improve quality of life for my patients. I believe that a comprehensive approach and tailored treatment plans often involving intensive therapies, state-of-the-art technologies, and judicious medication management can empower each patient to return to a life they enjoy.
