Internship Testimonials

"Coming into the internship, I was very unsure about what I really wanted to do after college was done.

During my time with Yoshimoto Physical Therapy, I not only got to see the way things were run, but I got hands on experience working with the patients. I was able to help patients with their exercise programs, while also increasing the knowledge I had about the rehabilitation process.

I'm so thankful to have been welcomed into such a great environment and to be given the ability to work with and learn from a great, knowledgeable staff."

"Upon entering Yoshimoto Physical Therapy as an intern through the Kapili Oihana program, I was at a loss for direction in my career goals. I stumbled into the program by chance, but luckily it was just where I needed to be. Although I was hesitant at first, Dean and Kristen provided me the same patience and encouragement they express towards their patients. They allowed me to become as involved as possible and really get a feel for what physical therapy is all about. Whether it was loosening up a shoulder so a patient could golf again, or strengthening a patient's muscles so they could play with their grandchildren, I watched Dean and Kristen help patients get their life back again in a matter of weeks. My internship with Yoshimoto Physical Therapy not only gave me the opportunity to enhance my communication skills, develop professionalism, and apply my studies to a real world setting, but it ultimately inspired me to become a therapist myself. I think I learned more over my summer internship than from an entire year in biology lab! It was definitely one of the most valuable experiences I've had thus far in my education and I'm so fortunate to have had the chance to shadow such great therapists."

what people say about us
“My physician initially stated that my shoulder was torn and that I would require reconstructive surgery. I elected to receive physical therapy instead of surgery and my physician referred me to Yoshimoto Physical Therapy

I am very grateful to Dean for extensively rehabilitating my shoulder and enabling me to avoid surgery.

I have recommended my close friends to Dean and would recommend anyone to try physical therapy with Dean Yoshimoto.”
