Dr. Dimalanta is driven to help patients return to doing the things in life that they did before their injuries. She specializes in Postoperative Physical Therapy.
Here at Avila Physical Therapy, we strive to create a welcoming and friendly environment for all our patients and staff. Dr Dimalanta finds that the best things about working here are the team-oriented style we have and being able to get to know our patients on a more personal level.
When she is not treating patients here at Avila PT, you can find Dr. Dimalanta traveling and spending time with her family and godchildren. She loves being outdoors (when the heat isn’t absolutely scorching). Don’t let her outdoor side fool you, she can definitely wind down with a quiet day at home, a comfy couch, and a good book or movie.
