The RFPT Story

Just like any PNW story, it started with a cup of coffee. Owners Kim Bisson and Susan Jankelson were working at a large corporate clinic together in the Puyallup area and, after meeting over coffee, decided that they wanted to break away from the normal physical therapy setting. They wanted a place that was not stagnant or boring, but instead was lively, fun, and a highlight to a patient’s day. After a year of hard work and a lot of patience, Rainier Family Physical Therapy (RFPT) opened in May 2008!

RF Physical Therapy

Now in our 11th year since opening, RFPT has met some of the best people in the PNW and continues to serve the Puyallup, Graham, and South Sound area. RFPT has seen tremendous growth since opening but has not lost its identity. Our team continues to provide high-quality care in a comfortable, friendly, and fun environment.
