Hi I am Reshawn Devendra, Hi I am Reshawn Devendra, I am the lead physiotherapist here at Willowdale physiotherapy clinic. I have been practising physiotherapy since 1999 in both long-term-care and in outpatient clinics. I originally trained as a clinical psychologist, however, during my placement I stumbled upon physiotherapy and found the whole experience totally rewarding, so much so that I retrained as a physiotherapist. General physiotherapy is what I practice, but also I have a keen interest in geriatric physiotherapy. My occupation takes me now to many long-term care homes across Ontario, where I take care of elderly residents by supporting them with assistive devices, pain management, post-operative rehabilitation, and wellness exercise therapy on a daily basis. We hope that you two will benefit from one or two of our services that we provide here. Thank you. You may confirm my college status here https://www.collegept.orgRead More

Charlotte CaoPhysiotherapy Assistant (Team Leader)
Hi, my name is Charlotte. I chose to study physiotherapy because I had a keen interest in medicine. I studied a two-year program at Georgian college. My major was in physiotherapy-assistant and occupational-therapy-assistant. I have WHMIS certificate; CPR with Health Care Provider and First Aid Certificate. The most enjoyable part of treating patients is communicating with them. I am always glad to hear that they are going to be getting better during the treatment. There was a senior lady who broke the bone of her wrist half year ago. She felt pain then came to do the treatment. She could not squeeze a soft ball at the beginning. But she was able to hold 1 lb weight to do wrist flexion after only few sessions. Be professional and confident, trust in yourself, and then patients will trust you; when the patients trust you, they will be healed quickly soon after. Thank you!
Agnes Ramos., B.Sc. Physiotherapy.Physiotherapy Assistant (Lead)

I had an extensive experienced in a variety of settings including inpatient, OP, rehab, retirement home and long-term care health primarily working with the geriatric population. Helping with patients to improve, regain or retain their functional abilities I truly enjoyed. I think the best treatment to be given to every patient is to show them a happy smile with genuine kindness. I am fluent in English & Tagalog, can speak intermediate Spanish too.
Vidhya Devendra., B.Sc. RN.Registered Nurse. Clinical Director.
Hi, I am Vidhya, the clinical director at Willowdale Physiotherapy and Centerpoint Medical Centre. I originally trained as an accountant, however, I realized that my true passion was in nursing. When I started working with my husband; his profession being physiotherapy, and working in long-term care with large numbers of seniors, and my tagging along with him in order to help him, that is when I truly realized how rewarding nursing can be. Soon after I chose to re-train as a nurse, and hence I completed my nursing degree in 2015 at York University. I split my time between Toronto General Hospital (TGH) and here at our clinic. Please do feel free to say hi if you see me at the clinic, or if you have any questions at all, I look forward to speaking with you. Thank you.
