Dr. Benjamin Philip Gerami, PT, DPT
Doctor of Physical Therapy
From an early age, Dr. Gerami has always intended to work within the medical field to serve all people and help them feel their very best. Originally born and raised in the United Kingdom, he completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Los Angeles, earning his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. He hoped to work in pharmaceuticals to develop safer and more effective drugs in treating pain and disease but changed career paths to the field of Physical Therapy because he believed he could be more influential as a Physical Therapist in rehabilitating patients through manual therapy, exercise, and education instead of prescription medication.
He received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from California State University, Long Beach, and was awarded licensure to practice by the Physical Therapy Board of California.
Initially, Dr. Gerami has been treating patients full-time at Better Health & Wellness Center, however, he currently practices part-time at the Center, and works full-time at Mission Hospital, Outpatient Neuro Department, primarily treating patients with Intensive Brain Trauma, in addition to patients with orthopedic injuries.
His preference in patientcare includes a combination of manual therapy with exercise that follows evidenced-based research and meets patient-preferences to optimize success in rehabilitation.
Dr. Gerami believes that by working alongside many different health professionals within Better Health & Wellness Center, his patients have a greater opportunity in exploring multiple avenues of treatment with the highest quality care specific to their preferences.
In his free time, Dr. Gerami enjoys playing many sports including soccer, basketball, golf and tennis. He also loves to play guitar, run at the beach, and enjoy quality time with friends and family.
