Alyssa Shumate

I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and moved to NC in 2017. I finally went back to college in 2018 and finished my bachelor's degree in Speech and Language Pathology from Appalachian State University!

Core values of mine are strong communication and compassion. I strive to create a transformational experience with others, not a transactional one.


“My soul is impatient with itself, as with a bothersome child; its restlessness keeps growing and is forever the same. Everything interests me, but nothing holds me.”
― Fernando Pessoa

To me, most of the patients that are coming into Physio are in a lot of pain and discomfort and although I do not work with them hands on, I want to ensure that the financial side of their treatment goes smoothly so that that is one less thing they need to worry about. I want them to fully focus on getting better!

I handle the billing and coding side of Physio while also overseeing front desk duties. 

I love that everyone at Physio genuinely enjoys connecting with patients and creating a caring environment. We create trust with our patients and see some amazing improvements. I love watching the healing process and seeing the patients happier.
