Our Team

It takes a team of driven and hardworking individuals to create an unmatched patient experience.

Our staff is committed to ensuring only the best quality and service by cultivating relationships with the patients we serve.

Advanced Physical Therapy and Preferred Physical Therapy are one and the same. We are a locally owned outpatient physical therapy company that started back in 2004 in Wichita by our three owners, Derry Larson, Brad Dopps, and David Todd. Our company started physical therapy clinics in the Wichita and surrounding areas as Advanced Physical Therapy and moved up into the Kansas City and surrounding areas as Preferred Physical Therapy. Over the years, we have expanded to include both specialties of physical therapy and occupational therapy. Although we have two names, our company has the same overall vision to build relationships for life and improve the wellness of the communities we serve.

Great people wanted to join our team of hard-working therapists and administrative staff.

Every one of our staff members is focused on bettering the lives of our patients. It takes an army; from billing and insurance staff, care coordinators and rehab techs, to the therapists themselves, each member of our team contribute to building the ultimate patient experience.
