Meet Ben Smith, PTA

Ben is from Lake Havasu City, AZ. He attended Mohave Community college where he earned his PTA degree. He has been practicing for 9 months now at Southern Oregon Orthopedics. I was a lifetime construction worker until I decided to go back to school in my mid-thirties to be an example for my children. I wanted to show that you can do anything you want if you try hard enough, and you don’t have to take the path of least resistance. I am a believer in PT and that makes it easier to be in this profession of daily basis. I enjoy the personal connection you get from helping people though something that they may not have the knowledge or will power to do on their own. It is all about the patient for me and I am very grateful for the fact that they trust me with their ailment and their well-being. I have a beautiful wife of 10 years, and three wonderful kids, 2 rambunctious boys, 1 very loquacious girl. They are the light of my life! I enjoy the outdoors, sports of all kind. I also enjoy doing things like maintaining my garden and chickens. I recently moved to the Rogue Valley and I love it here.
