In this installment of our ‘Day in the Life’ series, we’ll explore the dynamic world of Matt Godofsky, a physical therapist and co-owner of Renew Physical Therapy in Renton. Matt’s transformation from a recent graduate physical therapist to a clinic owner is both inspiring and enlightening. Let’s delve deeper into his pivotal role at Renew Physical Therapy. 

Matt’s journey into ownership began with a stroke of fate when he connected with Erik and Renew Physical Therapy after moving to Seattle. Matt was drawn to Renew Physical Therapy’s ethos of community service and patient-centered care, aligning perfectly with his own values. As he advanced within the company, Matt’s dedication and passion led him to become a managing partner, overseeing the expansion of Renew Physical Therapy into Renton.

Matt’s daily schedule is a testament to his commitment to both patient care and clinic management. “My days are a blend of treating patients and managing clinic operations,” he explains. Despite his administrative responsibilities, Matt ensures that patient care remains his top priority. Each day brings a mix of one-on-one sessions with patients, responding to emails, supporting staff members, and strategizing ways to enhance clinic growth.

However, Matt acknowledges that balancing these responsibilities isn’t always easy. “It can be challenging to juggle patient care, documentation, communication, and clinic growth,” he admits. Yet, it’s this very challenge that drives Matt to continually innovate and refine his approach, ensuring that Renew Physical Therapy delivers the highest quality of care to its community.

When he’s not immersed in the world of physical therapy and clinic ownership, Matt prioritizes self-care and relaxation. “I enjoy taking walks with my wife and our dachshund, Duke,” he shares. As a sports enthusiast, Matt also finds joy in cheering on his favorite teams and spending quality time with family, both near and far.

Despite the challenges, Matt’s favorite aspect of his job is clear: “I find immense satisfaction in helping my patients progress and improve their quality of life,” he explains. Being a part of their journey, from the initial consultation to discharge, fills Matt with a sense of purpose and fulfillment that drives him to excel each day.

Matt’s story is a testament to the passion and dedication of physical therapists who not only provide exceptional care but also take on the responsibilities of clinic ownership. Through his commitment to patient well-being and clinic growth, Matt embodies the core values of Renew Physical Therapy, making a positive impact on the lives of countless individuals in the Renton community and beyond.
