Meet Our Team

If you are looking for a physical therapist in New York, ATW has got you covered. We have a team of professionals to include more than physical therapists. Our team is built to provide a holistic approach to health and wellness and includes physical therapists, nutritionists, speech therapists and more. Meet the members of our team below. 

Dr. Ginger Oliver, PT, AIB-VR/CON  

Dr. Ginger Oliver, PT, received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Utica College, her Master of Science in Physical Therapy from University of Miami and her Bachelor of Science from Springfield College.  She holds a specialty certification in Vestibular & Concussion Rehabilitation from the American Institute of Balance.

Dr. Oliver, PT has over 25 years of clinical and leadership experience in the Mohawk Valley.  She has held positions as Rehabilitation Manager at MVHS and Director of Rehabilitation at Rome Memorial Hospital. She is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, Private Practice Section, Health, Policy and Administration Section and Global Health Special Interest Group.  Dr. Oliver, PT has spoken nationally and internationally on therapy and global health topics.  Some of her most valued accomplishments have been from her work in Haiti following the earthquake in 2010.
