Rachel Douglas, PT, MPT, CLT, APTA
To schedule a physical therapy appointment, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center patients need to be referred by a Fred Hutch physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner. Patients who have secondary lymphedema can be seen at the Fred Hutch clinic by one of our physical therapists specializing in oncology.
Rachel graduated from Mount Saint Mary’s College in 1996 with a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy. She has gained experience in a variety of settings including acute and orthopedic rehabilitation, hand therapy, and pelvic floor rehabilitation.
In 2001, she became a certified lymphedema therapist and since that time has focused on working with oncology patients. In recent years she has traveled overseas with a health volunteer organization to work in third world country hospitals.
Rachel finds fulfillment working at Fred Hutch as part of a holistic medical team. Her patients inspire her daily with their motivation and strength while making positive changes in their physical health.
