Dr. De Noyelles


Dr. De Noyelles completed his residency in Advanced Orthopedic Physical Therapy at Sacred Heart University. He is a graduate of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY.  Seeking more intensive training and a higher level of skill led him into the Sacred Heart University Orthopedic Physical Therapy Residency Program. It is here where he discovered his love for teaching and working with students in his role as an adjunct professor in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program. His love for teaching is evident in the clinic, as Dr. De Noyelles is devoted to communicating with and educating patients during their path to recovery.
