Aaron Stapleton - Dodge City Ambucs Therapist of the Year!
We are proud to announce that our own Aaron Stapleton is the Ambucs Therapist of the Year!
Aaron has worked for Western Plains Therapy Services for the past two years. Aaron was also a student physical therapist with Western Plains for 12 weeks during his final year in school.
Aaron is originally from Dodge City, graduating from Dodge City High School. He attended Dodge City Community College initially then transferred to Wichita State receiving his bachelor’s degree. He then was admitted into the WSU Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program. Upon graduating in 2019 he came back to this area taking a position as staff Physical Therapist.
Aaron is an excellent physical therapist. He has grown over the two years he has been practicing, expanding his knowledge and skills. He has become certified in dry needling and provides great care to the athletes that come to therapy with his passion for sports medicine. Aaron has been able to help other more critical patients in the hospital setting as well. Recently Aaron has taken a position with a pediatric special needs clinic in Dodge City as well - helping to serve a group of patients with unique needs.
"His personal attributes that I feel make him a good nominee for this award are his dedication to science and using proven, evidence based treatment techniques. He sees all types of patients with all kinds of diagnoses - treating each and every one with courtesy and respect. He individualizes his treatment plans to each patient’s needs and personal goals. He routinely goes “the extra mile” to make sure each of his patients is well taken care of and has a thorough care plan," said Amy Dunn, Director of the Therapy Services. "We, at Western Plains, feel very fortunate to have Aaron on our team. He is well educated, talented as a therapist and truly cares about taking care of the people of this community - a community he was born and raised in."
