Gary Abano, DPT, OCS

Physical Therapist

Gary is dynamic, enthusiastic, and ready to adapt to any situation. He’s enthusiastic about experiencing new things, and approaches life with an empathetic spirit, which helps him understand fully what his patients are going through. Gary strives to truly see the person in front of him, rather than just the injury that they have. He has been incorporating this approach in his practice for almost ten years, and believes it has contributed to great relationships with his patients. Having worked with various individuals—from the barista at your favorite coffee shop, to the CEO of a multinational company, to professional athletes—his approach and dedication to each person has been the same. Along with his personal approach and practical knowledge, he brings extensive clinical expertise.

Gary is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, and a board-certified Orthopedic specialist (which is held by less than 5 percent of physical therapists in the US). He ranked 9th in the whole country during his board examinations in the Philippines. Gary supplements his practice with various manual therapy techniques: he earned a certification in Kinesio taping from Utica College, and he is also a Graston Technique Certified Practitioner.

Gary—fondly referred to as “G-man” or simply “G”—is energized by photography, being outdoors, playing soccer, dancing hip-hop or salsa, trying different kinds of food, and most especially by his wife and little boy. He is also fueled by creativity and activity, and is looking forward to gaining more meaningful experiences in life.
