Beacon Hill Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation is probably the first new business to open in Whitchurch-Stouffville in 2019. The clinic is located at 175 Mostar Street on the main floor, below WOLF Technology (featured on Page 4). At the forefront is Physiotherapist Phil Genesis – this will be the 2nd clinic he has opened. For Phil, this is a homecoming, as he grew up in the Markham-Stouffville area and has always aimed to bring a premier facility to his hometown community.
Phil graduated from the University of Toronto with a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy in 2012. His clinical internships were completed with distinction for exemplary performance in orthopaedic rehabilitation. He has a strong academic and clinical background and has advanced training within The Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapy, medical acupuncture, concussion rehab, and athletic taping.
The focus of Beacon Hill Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation is, says Phil, “The quick treatment of pain through a full array of physio and rehab services, and offering convenience so the patient can focus on getting better.” He says that the team is available late and on weekend so help schedule appointments. “We aim to book your initial assessment within 24 business hours.” They also offer direct billing to almost every insurance company to eliminate out of pocket expenses.
Phil says that he consciously co-located across the corridor from Beacon Hill Family Practice. “Your doctor is always our partner, it takes a team approach to provide high quality health care. That is why we never take your doctor out of the equation.” Dr. Efosa Igbinovia opened the adjacent family practice in the spring of 2018. They are both accepting new patients.
