Jisel Saenz, PT, DPT
California Licensed Physical Therapist
Jisel earned her degree in Physical Therapy in 2015 from Azusa Pacific University, CA. She became interested in physical therapy early on after tearing her ACL a few times while playing basketball. Jisel began her clinical experience at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles as an inpatient physical therapist. There she collaborated with Doctors, Nurses and Occupational Therapists to treat patients in the Orthopedics, Oncology and Medical-Surgical floors. It was a very rewarding opportunity that not only gave her valuable experience but also affirmed her commitment and passion for quality and compassionate care. Jisel has continued to progress her career and skill set by obtaining a Specialty Certification in Vestibular Rehabilitation from the American Institute of Balance (AIB). In 2017, she moved back to the Bay Area and then to Key West, Florida with her husband, a Coastie in the Coast Guard. During this time Jisel had the opportunity to establish a Vestibular Rehabilitation Program where she evaluated and treated patients with diagnoses such as BPPV, labyrinthitis and Merniere’s Disease. In this role, she mentored students and served as a resource to other therapists. Being part of a Military family herself, she’s also devoted her skills to assisting fellow military in returning to work through rehabilitation so they could pass their physical tests and return to their prior level of function for work. Jisel is looking forward to utilizing her ability to speak both fluent English and Spanish to serve the San Diego community and provide the best care she possibly can.
Experienced, kind, professional, and most important -- effective. MPT has helped me and my son recover from injuries that required surgery. When Mark told me that I was ready to "graduate" from my four plus months of physical therapy, I was a little bit sad. It was an amazing experience. My recovery was tough, but Mark knew how to help me not only physically but also psychologically. He motivated me to push through the pain, and he was right every step of the way. He has done the same with my son, who is soon ready to return to playing soccer after six plus months of physical therapy. We are so delighted with his recovery. Plus the office staff is great - always friendly and responsive, ready to help....especially Jaimie. Thank you!
