Luis Zayas, MD, PT grew up in Puerto Rico. After completing his bachelor’s degree in physical therapy, Dr. Zayas perused a medical degree to acquire more mental tools to positively impact people’s quality of life. Dr. Zayas pursued movement disorders as a sub-specialty because he was drawn to a type of medicine that relied so heavily on visual observation to reach potential diagnoses. Dealing with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders allows him to combine his medical training with his physical therapy background to provide holistic care. Dr. Zayas believes the complexity of the human body’s movements, along with its associated diseases, is the most fascinating field in medicine and he sees himself devoted to the field the rest of his life.
