Meet Frank Seratch III, MPT (Co-Owner)

Since co-founding our business with his wife, Sarah, Frank has enjoyed working with boys and girls to enhance their lives. He is a knowledgeable therapist, a master of Physical Therapy degree from Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science. Additionally, he is a respected alumnus of Pennsylvania State University (Penn State), where he earned a bachelor's degree in health science.

Frank, in partnership with Sarah, opened our first office in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, in 2000.

Now, he can be seen at all of our clinic locations, but he mainly works at the office on Broad Street in Hazleton. He specializes in treating orthopedic ailments, especially those of the shoulder.

In addition to working full time and co-owning our business, Frank spends quality time with his wife and 3 children. He also loves traveling and playing golf.
