Owner/Founder of Red FOX Physical Therapy, PC

Sara A. Mohagen, PT, DPT


“People shouldn’t dread going to physical therapy. They should look forward to it. They should enjoy themselves, and know that they are investing in themselves and practicing good self-care. They should know that their practitioner values them and is invested in helping them reach their goals. That can make all the difference for them to overcome their challenges and be able to fully enjoy life. I hope the medical world can start seeing people like people again instead of numbers.”
— Sara A. Mohagen, PT, DPT
