Bradley Roberge | Office Coordinator 

I am originally from Portland, Oregon and have lived in San Francisco for 11 years. In my free time, I enjoy photography, live music, and dancing. I am excited to join the Therapydia team!


Vincent Castoro, PT, DPT | Physical Therapist 

Vincent is a Bay Area native who takes pride in supporting the health of communities. He received his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from the UCSF/SFSU Graduate Program in Physical Therapy in 2019. After completing the orthopedic residency program through Kaiser Permenente in 2020, he became a board certified specialist in orthopedic physical therapy. Vincent values professional development, and his pursuit of continued education has expedited his understanding of musculoskeletal management.

Vincent’s athletic history in ice hockey and baseball ignites his passion for physical therapy and movement optimization. His experiences with personal injuries and post-surgical rehabilitation provides his own patient perspective that informs his approach with clients.

Education and empowerment through movement literacy are Vincent’s strongest attributes as a physical therapist. He uses active listening along with biomechanics informed movement assessments to simplify treatment. 

Outside of the clinic, Vincent enjoys spending his time outdoors with his wife Kealan, son Roman, and dog Zeke.


Spencer McNairy, PT, DPT | Physical Therapist

Spencer was born and raised in the small town of Sonoma, CA, about 45 minutes north of San Francisco. He attended Oregon State University, graduating in 2020 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology before attending the University of the Pacific where he earned his Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy. Spencer believes that physical therapy care should revolve around a patient-centered approach with an emphasis on long-term improvement in general quality of life through empowering individuals to further their health and well-being. A foundation that lies in providing individualized care specific to each patient’s needs with empathy, respect, and kindness. Spencer believes in providing treatment through emphasizing therapeutic exercise and manual therapy with a combination of functional movements and various modalities to target each patient’s specific needs and create a high-quality individualized plan. Spencer also appreciates how patient-centered therapydia is while also prioritizing the health and well-being of their employees. When not in the clinic, he enjoys being outdoors hiking, playing basketball or golf, as well as hunting for waterfowl and fishing for trout or bass. Spencer is also a huge fan of baseball and enjoys going to games with friends and family throughout the summer and spending time at the beach.

What drives my work at the clinic is being able to make other peoples’ day lighter, brighter and more vibrant! Providing attentive, solution-based care has been at the heart of learning how to be a better resource to my patients. I like to employ a down-to-earth, strengths-focused approach in helping all patients upfront, and handling all aspects of clinic maintenance behind-the-scenes so they can focus on their healing and potential! In my downtime, I enjoy reading, practicing piano, seeing friends and cuddling my black cat Sunday.

I enjoy working at Therapydia because I get to witness patients achieve their health and wellness goals every day!

Allison Low, PT, DPT
Physical Therapist

I have always been a fan of Grey’s Anatomy, and I like to imagine if Dr. McDreamy were a physical therapist, he would start every day with the quote, “It’s a beautiful day to fix bodies.” I believe that every patient can achieve their best version of themself. I strive to use my expertise in physical therapy to help patients achieve their goals with various techniques, skills, and evidence-based practice. My goal is to make sure every patient feels heard, acknowledged, and motivated to get back to their best self. To become your best self, a person must believe in themself and be active in their recovery. My role is to guide them through that process and give them the necessary tools for a successful restoration. I treat my patients like family and enjoy creating lifelong relationships in the process of their recovery.

Background in physical therapy:
– Spinal cord injury rehab
