Toppenish Physical Therapy has been providing services in Toppenish for over 25 years and under the Direction of RMTS since 2013. We work with the physicians in our community as well as those in surrounding communities. Through our relationship with physicians, we are able to provide a quality outcome and patient education focus to clients. TPT works with the community, area employers, school districts and student athletes and their parents and coaching staff to assist in a positive outcome. Under the Direction of Angie Meloy, PT, and a great support staff, the clinic has reached out and become a partner facility to the community.
