Meet Our Therapists
Bob Quintas, PT, graduated from the Long Beach State University Physical Therapy Program in 1976. He worked in hospitals for 7 years in both Acute Rehabilitation and Outpatient settings before starting Del Mar Physical Therapy in 1985. Bob's "hands-on approach" and desire to learn through continuing education and the study of other professional disciplines have given him the opportunity to develop expert manual skills and a knowledge of the human frame that only comes from working over 30 years in the field. He has developed a technique that facilitates the return of muscle and joint function by applying Kinesiology testing to align the skeletal structure.
Betty Bulich, PT, has been a professional in our clinic since 1987. She is an honors graduate of the University of Southern California. She has experience in many areas of physical therapy. She was employed at a San Diego orthopedic practice for 7 years, Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego for 8 years and various acute hospital settings in the Los Angeles and San Diego areas. Betty's expertise is in her manual therapy skills and holistic approach to rehabilitative care. She is an avid runner and truly understands an individual's struggle with the loss of function at any level.
