Thank you for Entrusting Chehalem Physical with your Patient’s Care

Dear Referring Provider,

Thank you for entrusting us with your patients’ physical therapy needs. We have been serving the Newberg area for over 20 years. Our therapists are well versed in the areas of orthopedic conditions including pre and post-surgical therapy, manual therapy, ergonomic assessment, sports rehabilitation and injury prevention, aquatic therapy, work injuries, and injuries related to motor vehicle accidents. 

We value clinical excellence. Four of our therapists hold advanced certifications in their areas of interest. Bud Heristad, PT, is a Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist. He has a special interest in workplace assessment and rehabilitating injured workers. Katie Severeid, PT, DPT, CLT is a certified lymphedema therapist. She is also a certified running coach through the Road Runners Association. Angela Wu, PT, DPT, MPH, WCS, is a board-certified women’s health clinical specialist with a special interest in prenatal and postpartum care and sports rehabilitation. Maria Tang, OTR/L, CHT is a board-certified hand therapist.

We value relationships. We understand that you, as a referring provider are choosing to trust us with your patients’ care. We understand that our patients have the right to seek care from a clinic of their choice. This is why we take great measures to ensure communication between you, our patients, and our clinicians. 

We value a welcoming atmosphere. We greet our patients by their first names when they come into our clinic and aim to know 5 personal things about each patient before the conclusion of their first appointment. Our goal is to have our patients feel like they are a part of our family from the minute they set foot in our clinic.
