Alejandro “Alex” Gonzalez
Doctor of Physical Therapy
PARC started as the dream of its founder Alejandro “Alex” Gonzalez. Alex grew up playing a number of sports, this is where his passion for exercise, training and health began. While playing high school basketball, he began feeling chronic pain in the knee due to his extensive training. He was referred to PT, where he immediately fell in love with the profession. He decided right then and there that he would someday become a physical therapist.
In 2007, he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences and immediately began the Doctoral program for Physical Therapy.
In 2010, after three years of graduate school, he attained a degree of Doctor of Physical Therapy and immediately began working in an outpatient rehabilitation facility. Following his love for health and exercise science, he worked as a personal trainer throughout his years at FIU and continues to follow that passion of health and fitness today.
In 2012, Alex founded Premier Athletic Rehab Center (PARC) with the intention of creating a rehabilitation and wellness facility, that would provide premier physical therapy and wellness services and empower the community to take command on their health. Today, he continues to serve his community, providing a hands-on and client-centered approach to physical therapy and wellness that is second to none.
