Hidden Gems: Meet Victor Rusenescu of Orange County Physical Therapy OCPT
Today we'd like to introduce you to Victor Rusenescu.
Hi Victor, we'd love for you to start by introducing yourself. How I started OCPT? July 2018, I got released from my current contract as a director and quickly knew I needed to be an owner to my own physical therapy clinic. I knew I wanted to own long before but didn't have the “balls” to say to do it alone. I still didn't do it alone as my wife pushed me to open. I have worked in the physical therapy environment for over 20 years first as an aide then athletic trainer and then got my Doctorate in 2007. I believe timing is everything but also without risk there is no reward. I took lots of risks to be where I am today. I feel we have been able to sustain and grow even during this past Covid year of closures and more. Having mentors and or one mentor to look up to has helped me as well to be able to talk to about problems and ideas to avoid feeling you're alone on trying to grow a business where there is so much competition.
I'm sure you wouldn't say it's been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road? Struggles is always trying to avoid looking at money and focus on the one thing that gets you money. So my advice whatever you spend your time worrying about the most stop it and focus on the one thing to get you where you want to be for that moment.
Thanks - so what else should our readers know about Orange County Physical Therapy OCPT, Inc? We are an outpatient physical therapy clinic in Newport Beach. We specialize in orthopedics, pain management, women's health, sports rehab and vestibular rehab. We are set apart from other physical therapy clinics because our doctors work exclusively with the patient without use of assistance or aides. One on One approach. I am extremely proud of our reputation and that we have very skilled doctors that not only skilled at their craft but are athletes themselves pushing their bodies to be top shape. Our services are focused and geared for each person. Just because we all suffer for example from back pain doesn't mean we treat them all the same. We look at each person individually and design best practice outcomes to get results in fewer number of visits. We do this through continued skilled practices and measurable studies and practices of yearly educational courses. OCPT is all about higher quality of care in all aspects from interactions with our front desk to their time spent with our doctors. We also offer higher standard of fitness as our trainers work with our doctors to help clients with their fitness goals. Fitness clients are extremely happy to have their trainers working alongside doctors as they feel secure and know they are not just having a trainer count repetitions.
Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us? We work hard in communication with local doctors that refer to us to create goals that are met. We are a practice that focuses on pre-surgical and post-surgical rehabilitation. Our skills and working with surgical doctors of keeping in close contact to maximize each person’s capabilities of reaching full potential of back to normal after surgery. We are in-network with all major insurance companies.
We captured so much fun at our Open House on 1/25!
We are excited to be in Newport Beach.
It has been a dream of OCPT to be in this great community!

Peloton provides a tutorial for basic bike fitting, but does not provide personal recommendations for bike adjustments when experiencing discomfort. As a Doctor of Physical Therapy, I found myself wanting…
