Doug grew up in Marlboro, NJ. After being accepted into Seton Hall University’s (SHU) 3+2 Dual Degree program he received an undergraduate degree in social behavioral sciences. During this time he worked with all of SHU’s Division I sports teams, while also working as a resident assistant for SHU’s housing and residence life staff. Later he earned his Master of Science in Athletic Training from SHU as well. While in graduate school, he worked at various clinical locations, these included; Rutgers University, The Pingry School, Fairleigh Dickinson University, and Seton Hall University’s Sports Medicine and Strength and Conditioning Team.

Doug is a huge believer in a total body approach to rehab by identifying and correcting all deficits a patient is having. For this reason, his main goal is to get people mentally, physically and emotionally into the best shape they can be, while using the most current evidence-based research.

Doug’s future plan is to provide advanced rehabilitation techniques to countries abroad. He hopes to bring the skills of an athletic trainer to populations of people that are not receiving appropriate therapy. In his spare time, he loves to workout, hang out with friends and family, plays with his poodle as well as fold origami.

Doug is awesome and is so knowledgeable about work outs and stretching. I came in for shoulder pain and he ended up assisting me with a dog bite that was very swollen and bruised. He did not have to help me with this but went out of his way to provide me with support!

I’ve been here since 2013 and the clinician to patient care has always been astounding. The two clinicians that I always work with (Dr. Monika and Douglas) are always great and encouraging. I look forward to coming in everyday and I always feel better after each session. I recommend Old Bridge Spine and Wellness to any patient who is in pain.

Everyone is extremely helpful and caring! I have been working closely with Monica and Doug for the past few months for TMJ and concussion side effects. The exercises Doug showed me has truly helped me with easing the pain regarding my TMJ and opening my eyes to the side effects of a concussion. He is great to work with and he takes the time to explain each exercise and why it is beneficial and I appreciate that! Monica has been awesome with TMJ treatment. Massaging the jaw and showing stretches to ease pain have both been helpful. After every visit with her, I feel much better and at ease. Spending the time with both Monica and Doug have really impacted my everyday routine. My symptoms have truly improved over time and I am grateful for their help. Highly recommend !

Doug is an amazing AT! He’s personable & exude’s positivity. It’s like training with your best friend, (and nothing is better than that). He has incredible knowledge & knows how to get your body to where you want your body. I look forward to my appointments because with Doug’s ingenuity & ability to create activities that have you feeling like your just having fun makes time fly & gives you a grade A workout! before NJSW I was at a plateau and now in a month I lost 12 lb I feel energized and healthier Doug is 1 of the many great 1 on 1 people you will work with. Who doesn’t like making new friends? So whether age, ability, or disability, Doug will be there to help you on the road to recovery, rehabilitation, or to help you achieve your physical goals!

Christine S (4/11/18)

Wish I found this place sooner !!! Came here after living with neck and back pain for 4 years. After working with Dr. Monica. Dr Raquel and Doug they relieved my pain in a few short weeks. They take the time to show me all excersises to do at home. And work with me closely. There all truly great people. And will never go anywhere else when I need PT. I recommend this place to everyone. And give it 5 stars.

Too bad I cant give more than 5 stars. My 6 year old son came in with hip pain, not sure what caused it but I was concerned because summer camp was around the corner ans he was limping with pain. After ONE session with Dr. Mike my son was feeling better! Dr. Mike noticed some other issues and at first I was sceptical that my son was just TOO YOUNG for physical therapy and that the environment and workouts would not be age appropriate….well, I couldn’t be more wrong. No matter what the age ALL of the clients get treated with the same amount of care and enthusiasm…even the 6 year old! My son has a great time while working out and making his hip and body stronger. I am so impressed with Dougs enthusiasm and care while working with him. Always a big smile and encouraging my son to do his best making the work out productive and FUN! Dr. Mike and his team are the best in the business, I will be referring everyone I know.

Doug is extremely friendly, insightful and thorough with his work. He makes sure that each patient understands the purpose and reasons behind each stretch and exercise. Doug is part of an excellent staff at NJ Spine and Wellness Center who all do a phenomenal job.

Doug makes sure everything in my body is lined up and I do the most comfortable but effective stretches and workouts for my lower back. He is very engaging with his patients.

Rebecca M (6/27/18), Your Content Goes Here

He’s very knowledgeable and he has spend lot of time with me, and taught me new exercises to over come the pain. He never rushes me during my sessions. I highly recommend Doug.
