Dr. Utkarsh Patel, DPT
DIRECTOR OF PHYSICAL THERAPY
FOUNDER/CEO ACTIVE REHAB AND ACTIVE THERAPY (HEART CENTER)
BIO: "I moved to the United States at the age of 8 years old. I grew up locally - Fruitland Park. I did my elementary school, middle school and high school locally.
I went to University of Florida for my undergraduate degree and then went to Nova Southeastern University for my Doctorate degree.
Upon completion of my degree, I worked in the Villages. We started Active Rehab in 2014 and both of my businesses carry one simple fact:
I strive on excellence when it comes to patient care and I treat each of my patients as my extended family. I truly care for each one of my patients and have created a caring/warm environment for my patients to progress through rehab.
The human body is a wonderful creation and is resilient; I’m blessed to be able to treat and heal patients to allow them to return to their optimal level of function."
Dr. Tiffany Pitre, DPT
DIRECTOR OF CARDIAC REHAB
BIO: "I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy. I have been led by God to provide Physical Therapy services to all people from the age of birth to over 100 for 15 years already. The time has flown by, and my joy to help others heal, recover and live their best lives and reach their maximum potential never ceases.
Outside of the Clinic, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my Daughter and Husband. We enjoy watching movies, playing games, and going to new places to experience spontaneous adventures.
Fun Fact: I grew up in Germany and went to German school until 7th Grade! I am also new to Florida, having moved from Texas after living there for over 20 years!"
“I was not able to stand up from a chair and walk without assistance, until I met Dr. Payman and Dr. Patel. They explain, discuss and listen to their patients. I have improved by over 50% in strength, balance and stamina.”
“The physical therapy prescribed by Dr. Patel and implemented by all of you has had me make steady improvement. I will highly recommend Lady Lake Active Rehab to anyone needing physical therapy. The service is the best I have ever been involved with.”

“Thank you for your treatment. Today I have no pain which is wonderful. When I first visited you I wanted to get in a wheelchair and be inactive. Since my therapy I play golf and very active in daily activities. Thank you.”
