Patrick A. Tino, PT, DPT
Patrick A. Tino, PT, DPT, is a physical therapist who has been practicing for 23 years. Throughout his career, Pat has worked in settings ranging from acute care to skilled nursing to outpatient and to home health. Additionally, he has worked for six years as an assistant professor and lead instructor in pathophysiology, rehabilitation techniques, and therapeutic exercise. During his years teaching, Pat has had the privilege of being asked to be a regular guest lecturer for the nursing and physician assistant programs on the topics of ‘orthopaedic trauma’ and ‘vestibular assessment and treatment’. For over ten years Pat has been fortunate to simultaneously work consistently in the aforementioned settings. That opportunity has allowed him exposure to a tremendous amount of academic and clinical information which he has assimilated and put into practice while teaching his students and evaluating and treating his patients.
Currently, Pat has streamlined his clinical exposure to acute care, outpatient and home health settings where he is allowed to specialize in patients with orthopedic dysfunction who require surgical interventions such as total joint replacement, fracture repair, as well as non-surgical conservative physical therapy. Pat is proud to be actively involved and part of the orthopaedic team at a very large medical teaching hospital with a level 1 trauma designation where he evaluates and treats routine and complex orthopaedic surgical and non-surgical cases. Again, he is fortunate to follow patients through the continuum of care from acute to home health to outpatient settings. He serves as a mentor to new staff as well as a clinical instructor to several students per year. He also is a credentialed clinical instructor and a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and part of the acute care, orthopedic, and neurology sections. Pat is married with 3 children and lives and works in the Tampa Bay Florida region.
