Amber Rhodes, PT
Amber Rhodes is a 33-year veteran physical therapist who graduated from the University of Oklahoma. She is a native Texan but has made West Virginia her home for the past 31 years. Her greatest accomplishment is having raised her children while successfully participating in full-time physical therapy. She has gained valuable experience treating patients across the lifespan in outpatient, home, and acute care settings. Over time, the culmination of her life and clinical experiences has yielded an open-eye approach to many conditions with knowledge of how to address each person from a physical therapy perspective. Most recently, she has expanded her professional growth by incorporating women’s pelvic health to address this underserved population in Kanawha County. Her goal is to make a positive change on each attended physical therapy visit for the best possible outcome in the shortest time for every patient.
