Senior Physical Therapist Assistant

Vanessa Valdez

I am a licensed physical therapist assistant who graduated from Touro College in 2009 and joined the MSK Rehabilitation Service in 2010. Since then I have been fortunate to work with a variety of patients in both the acute care and outpatient rehabilitation settings. I have taken a special interest in treating patients with lymphedema and received my lymphedema certification in 2013. I am a very passionate therapist who truly enjoys working with oncology patients and am enthusiastic to further expand my clinical skills and knowledge to help make a difference in their quality of life.
