All Imagine Physical Therapy offices close for four hours each quarter, and come together for continuing education to learn and practice. Clinical practice takes place in order to master techniques and to validate each patient’s plan of care. Our Clinic Managers work daily to mentor and educate the therapists in their office on best treatment techniques. Please take a moment to meet our Clinic Managers!
VERY happily married to the MOST beautiful woman in South Carolina-wait, most beautiful in the world!- since 1991 resulting in four exceptional children. John and his family love being members of Seacoast Church. John served as an enlisted “grunt” in the United States Marine Corps Reserves. After graduating from MUSC, he was awarded a direct commission in the US Navy Reserves as a physical therapist (go figure). He retired in 2007 after 27 total years of military service. John’s passion is to see people free from the burden of pain, despair, and disability. Replacing hope and wellness for hopelessness and brokenness. His other professional passion is to train PT’s to be highly effective in restoring health and wholeness. If you’re broke, John would love to join with you to facilitate the fixin’.
Dusty was born and raised in East Tennessee. He received his Bachelors degree in Chemistry, and later his Doctoral degree of Physical Therapy from East Tennessee State University. He moved to the Lowcountry in 2011 for his first Physical Therapy internship at Imagine PT at Park West and immediately began work with Imagine upon graduation. Dusty is a huge sports fan and grew up playing baseball and football. Outside of work, he stays active by playing softball and flag football, kayaking, and hitting the beach. Dusty and his wonderful wife Kellye are members of the Church at Lifepark where they help with the youth ministry. Dusty believes the best part of his job is getting to know and help people be their very best. Recovering from an injury is not always a fun process, but being in a fun, happy place amongst friends makes rehabilitation much easier (and often even enjoyable!). Dusty feels that he is blessed to be a blessing and hopes you will come see him at Imagine’s Old Village clinic.
Davis has been a part of the Imagine family since his first clinical rotation as an MUSC student back in 2011. He began his professional career with Imagine after receiving his Doctoral degree in Physical Therapy from MUSC in 2013. He enjoys spending his free time exploring Charleston with his loyal companion, LEO, who he rescued from a local dog shelter. His love for physical therapy has deep roots, as he grew up playing sports and spent time as an injured athlete. During his time in physical therapy, he came to appreciate the caring bond a therapist can have with a patient. Davis has known he wanted to be a PT since high school, and he doesn’t consider coming to work a “job” because as he says making people feel better for a living is a blessing not a chore.

Just a country boy from Bishopville, SC, Ryan grew up playing any sport he could. He loved football above all else–that is until he met his future wife, Susan, in the 10th grade. Both went to Newberry College where Ryan lettered in football and graduated in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Biology and a Chemistry minor. He moved to Charleston in 2007 to attend MUSC, and after graduation in 2010, decided to make the Lowcountry his new home. In 2011 Ryan joined the Imagine family at the Park West clinic. Later on that year, Ryan and Susan welcomed their son, Liam, into the world! The Hills’ love being outside, attending Newspring Church, and rooting for the Clemson Tigers. When you step through the doors of Ryan’s clinic, you can consider yourself part of his family!
