Physical Therapy Services in North Port
About Our Director
Francisco Ramirez is the Director and lead Physical Therapist in our North Port location as well as our new West Villages office. Francisco, more commonly known as “Cisco”, grew up in Charlotte County, graduating from Charlotte High School in 1981. After high school, he started a career in the restaurant business where he learned his customer service skills. Realizing his love for the medical field cultivated by his parents who were both physicians in Charlotte and Lee counties, he completed the physical therapy program at Florida A&M University located in Tallahassee, Florida in 1999. Throughout Cisco’s years of practice, which includes a myriad of settings such as acute and long term care, rehabilitation hospital, sports clinic as well as neurologic and orthopedic facilities, he has found his niche in an outpatient clinic where he has been working for over 12 years. During that time, he has been certified in the BIG program specifically for Parkinson’s Disease rehabilitation as well as IASTM (neuromuscular massage) and Kinesiotaping. Cisco and his family have resided in the North Port area since starting with Fitness Quest Physical Therapy. He is honored to be a part of this growing community and helping the citizens of North Port. One may still see him on the roads of North Port in group bike rides, but lately you are more likely to see him in any of great golf courses that North Port and its surroundings have to offer.
