Behind the desk: Zachary Haulman


What products or services does your company provide?

Haulman Physical Therapy is Blair County’s first concierge physical therapy company. There is nothing like HPT within two hours of Altoona. We have an orthopedic clinical specialist (Zachary Haulman) and a pelvic floor specialist (Taylor Edmiston). What makes us different is we spend one-on-one time with every patient who schedules a visit at HPT. We are results driven and focused on getting you back to life as quickly as possible.

Who are your customers?

People who are seeking physical therapy services: Athletes, Crossfit athletes, active people, women, postpartum women and post surgery patients, for example.

What is your business day like?

We spend one-on-one sessions with people who are seeking physical therapy services. Located in Dormans Sports Performance, we have top-of-the-line facilities that we use for therapy and exercise to return patients to their previous level of function. We also offer a variety of “body work” options for people just trying to maintain their health.

What is the best business advice you have received?

Financial success is a byproduct of good service. If you put other’s needs before your own, and do the right thing every time, the business part will take care of itself.

What is the most important thing you’ve learned on the job?

The impact that you can make on people when their health is your priority. When you cut insurance companies out, you’re able to get back to the root cause of what physical therapy should be — giving people the best individualized attention to get them back to full function as quickly as possible.

What does the future hold?

I think there will be more people like me who break from the old model of physical therapy to offer a superior product.

What have you read lately that has influenced your business life?

I am a bit of a nerd. I buy a lot of textbook-like books, journal articles and join online mastermind groups in order to learn the latest and greatest ways to influence people through physical therapy.
