Now Accepting New Patients!
Doctor Duncan brings his physical therapy expertise to enhance every patient’s experience at Foot & Ankle Surgical Associates. He has worked with innumerable physical therapy situations and firmly believes that every patient deserves to reach the highest level of clinical outcomes.
In 2001, Doctor Duncan graduated from Creighton University, where he successfully earned his Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy. Afterwards, he decided to relocate to Washington State to begin his career as a physical therapist at Riverside Nursing Home in Centralia. This is when Doctor Duncan first met Doctor Hess and started to form their working relationship, bounded by mutual respect for patient care.
While in Centralia, Doctor Duncan started to work for Foster Farms in Kelso, treating all work-related injuries for those who were employed there. Later, he started working for Costco in Tumwater, providing similar services.
In 2003, Doctor Duncan took on a new journey and opened a clinic called Physiotherapy Associates, where he was proudly the clinic director who provided orthopedic outpatient physical therapy for his patients. What makes this so ironic is that his clinic was directly across the parking lot from Doctor Hess’s prior clinic, which only sharpened their patient-focused relationship.
In 2010, Doctor Duncan decided that he wanted to be a part of the Foot & Ankle Surgical Associates team, expanding his practice at what he believes is the best association for communication between physical therapists and doctors in the area. In addition, on the weekends, Doctor Duncan started working at Shelton’s Mason General Hospital, where he provides care to the patients there.
Doctor Duncan is incredibly diverse and willing to take on any challenge he faces with confidence and determination. His philosophy is to provide every patient with individual care while obtaining the highest level of manual therapy and therapeutic exercises so they can return to their healthy lifestyles.
I’m from Olympia born and raised, I graduated from Olympia High School and did my PTA program up in Bellingham at Whatcom Community College. I decided to get into physical therapy after injuring myself and becoming interested in healing people as a career. When I’m not nerding out on Marvel Comic books, my hobbies include skateboarding, snowboarding, hiking, camping, really anything being outdoors and active; injuries are nothing new to my friends and I! Physical therapy has and continues to be a fun and fascinating world that I continue to learn and grow from every day. I love our FASA team here and am excited to be part of our family.
