Dr. Patrick Bray is the Founder and President of Bluegrass Doctors of Physical Therapy. He founded this company with a radical different vision for physical therapy care. Thinking outside the box is what has allowed him to help many patients from a wide variety of backgrounds overcome their physical challenges. He believes that everyone should have an individual treatment protocol regardless of diagnosis and has implemented this philosophy successfully across multiple disciplines.  

He attended the University of Louisville for his undergraduate studies and received his Bachelors in Exercise Physiology. He then subsequently went on to achieve his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Wheeling Jesuit University.

He has been nominated for the Hall Render Leadership in Healthcare Award for 2016. He was also been recognized as one of the top 16 Physical Therapy providers 3 years in a row (2016, 2017, and 2018). Dr. Bray provides patients with the latest manipulative therapy, laser therapy and dry needling techniques to help alleviate muscle, joint, and nerve pain.
