Today’s spotlight shines on Dr. Fitzherbert Harry who is the owner of Harry Physical Therapy &Wellness founded July 2017 with the mission to help keep adults as active and healthy as possible without the need for injections, medications, or surgery.
Harry Physical Therapy & Wellness provides physical therapy in the convenience of the patient’s home or office. Some of the services provided for helping patients are:
Workplace injuries Carpal Tunnel and more
Dr. Harry recognized the Orlando area had a great need for his services. He wanted to make sure he wasn’t just another health care business, but instead a provider who see’s patients as family. Although, there are larger physical therapy chains, Harry Physical Therapy & Wellness offers one hour one on one personalized care in home and unlimited access for questions via text or call. Unlike his competitors, Dr. Harry is certified in reducing pain and treating Parkinson’s patients. In the future Dr. Harry hopes to expand his company by hiring physical therapists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and trainers to do the job. He said “the need is there and it would help many who are unable to leave the home.”
One of the challenges Dr. Harry has faced as being a black business owner is “being black.” Dr. Harry shared a story about meeting a neighbor who was Canadian who said to him “When we first saw you we thought you were like the rest of them.” Dr. Harry later discovered the Canadian and others in the community had a bias towards black people. “They think all we do is steal and that we are uneducated” said Dr. Harry.
Dr. Harry says he likes Black Business Orlando because he is “able to network with so many amazing people. It is also a great place for me to find services that I or my patients may need in one convenient location. I am in the patient’s home for an hour and they often bring up services that they may need. This group helps by giving me a group of resources.”
Networking with Black Business Orlando has helped my business by Introducing me to like-minded people in my area that I am able to connect and grow with.
