Scott Peterson, PT, ATC

Scott began his education at Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho where he attended one year before leaving college to serve a 2-year mission for his church. He returned to Ricks College and earned an Associates degree in Health Sciences. He then transferred to the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and continued his studies in sports medicine and athletic training until being accepted into the physical therapy program. He graduated in 1987 with honors earning a Bachelors of Science degree in Physical Therapy.

Following graduation, Scott accepted a position in a large hospital in Las Vegas, but quickly learned that his real interest was in outpatient orthopedics and sports medicine. In 1988, he moved his family to Medford, Oregon where he was involved in a private practice for over 10 years. During that time Scott developed his skills and specialty in orthopedic rehabilitation. Not only was he busy in the clinic, but he gave volunteer time to the local high schools and was part of the athletic training program at Southern Oregon State University.

Meghann Fleming, PT

Meghann grew up in Michigan where she had dreams and aspirations of becoming a physical therapist since the age of 13 when she was treated for a knee injury. She attended Grand Valley State University and received her Bachelor's in Health Science, was a member of the varsity tennis team and a member of the Delta Zeta sorority. She continued on with her education at the University of Michigan-Flint where she made her dreams come true when she graduated with her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2005.

Meghann knew that her life wasn't meant in Michigan, so she packed up her car and drove to Arizona where she has now established herself as a physical therapist in Surprise. She enjoys sharing her knowledge and compassion for the profession with her patients. Over the years she has worked with patients of all ages and activity levels. Her strength is to tailor a program specific for each of her patients and their conditions using the many skills that she has accumulated through the years as she guides them back to a full recovery. A good sense of humor, the ability to show compassion and a positive attitude help her in her efforts to help her patients return to their active life styles.

In her spare time she enjoys playing with her three shih tzus, taking hikes in the white tank mountains, attending live music shows, traveling and playing tennis.
