Tony Persampieri, DPT is a native Floridian growing up in Gainesville. He graduated with his Bachelors of Science in Sports Management with a minor in Business Administration from the University of North Florida in 2012.

This realization led to him graduating with his Doctorate of Physical Therapy with honors from The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences.

Tony has taken all the courses for the Manual Therapy Certification and looks to achieve this certification. He has experience with post-surgical conditions, vertigo, and balance deficits. He is an avid golfer who also loves working with golfers to help them reach their goals.
