Meet Our Partners
Preferred Physical Therapy and Advanced Physical Therapy are one and the same. We are a locally owned outpatient physical therapy company that started back in 2004 in Wichita by three friends, Derry Larson, Brad Dopps, and David Todd. Our company started physical therapy clinics in the Wichita and surrounding areas as Advanced Physical Therapy and moved up into the Kansas City and surrounding areas as Preferred Physical Therapy. Over the years, we have expanded to include both specialties of physical therapy and occupational therapy. Although we have two names, our company has the same overall vision to build relationships for life and improve the wellness of the communities we serve.
