Matt D. Paulakonis, MPT
Over the years, I have had clinical experience in a variety of settings, including acute care, home health, skilled nursing, and outpatient. Most of my career has been spent in the outpatient setting primarily treating orthopaedics and sports medicine injuries. I specifically enjoy sports medicine and pre/post-operative rehabilitation. I take an evidence-based approach to treatment with an emphasis on manual therapy. I am a certified Astym therapist, addressing a variety of soft tissue injuries. When I am not at work, I enjoy maintaining an active lifestyle and spending time with my wife and three children.
Ratings and Reviews
The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider related questions on our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Learn more about our survey process. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score. Patients who see some types of providers receive a different version of the patient satisfaction survey. Those results are not available on DukeHealth.org.
