Jose Elias Avalos, PTA

To Whom It May Concern:

I work well with various type of patients and have worked in both outpatient and inpatient setting. My past work and school experiences have prepared me with the skills to work in a team environment while being able to work independently when needed. I have 13 years of experience working as a therapy aide before going to PTA school and earning my Nevada and Oregon PTA license. In PTA school, I had three clinical experience settings in a private outpatient clinic, at a skilled nursing facility, and hospital inpatient orthopedic and trauma units.

I have a lot of first-hand experience administrating therapeutic exercises and modalities and well as building and executing treatment plans. I have experience with communicating with medical staff, physicians, support staff and other multiple disciplines regarding patient care, status, and concerns based on assessments in both English and Spanish. I have included contact information of therapy professionals that can vouch for my work experience and skill sets. I look forward to a personal interview to learn more about the position and to talk about how I can be a great asset to the company team.
