GOAL Therapy Specialists was founded in Dallas, Texas by Jason Lewis, PT, DPT in 2014 with himself as the only employee.
Baton Rouge, Louisiana native Jason Lewis, PT, DPT is a Doctor of Physical Therapy who planted his career roots in Dallas, Texas in 2009. Prior to completing his transitional Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Alabama State University, Dr. Lewis received his Master of Physical Therapy at the acclaimed Howard University located in Washington, DC. During his time at Howard, he was the recipient of the Suzanne McClain Memorial Award for perseverance, affability, and commitment to professional development. He was also awarded the College of Pharmacy, Nursing, and Allied Health Sciences scholarship for academic excellence.
While at Howard, Dr. Lewis was granted a clinical rotation at Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC), where he studied under CPT Karen Lambert, PT,MPT, NCS, a pioneer in the area of Neurological and Vestibular Rehabilitation. CPT Lambert had this to say about him: “While receiving my NCS certification at CSM 2006, the keynote speaker stated that “an expert is not one who always knows the answer, but one who is constantly asking questions to seek more information… always asking ‘why’”. At this early point in Jason’s career, it is clear he is on the path to becoming such an “expert”.” Dr. Lewis’s greatest experience was his time spent in the Military Amputee Training Center (MATC), Walter Reed’s state of the art rehabilitation center for soldiers who suffered amputations during their tour. Dr. Lewis was able to accumulate a wealth of knowledge at WRAMC, and attributes his time there as the foundation of his PT philosophy.
Dr. Lewis has always had a genuine passion for helping others that began prior to his time as a student physical therapist. While attending Jackson State University on a Football scholarship, he volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, and also made weekly hospital visits to motivate and inspire the sick and shut in. It was during those hospital visits when Dr. Lewis received confirmation that Physical Therapy was the right career path for him to take.
Now, seven years into his Physical Therapy career, Dr. Lewis remains extremely passionate about the profession. His experience spans vastly across the PT spectrum: Acute care, Outpatient, Home Care, Long-Term Care, Inpatient Rehab, and Wound Care. For the past two years he has served as the owner and president of GOAL Therapy Specialists, LLC, which is a home care therapy services company that provides skilled Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy services to patients across the DFW metroplex. Dr. Lewis prides his company in providing all patients with quality evidence-based treatments no matter their economic or geographical circumstances.
