Anthony Bisaccia

My name is Anthony Bisaccia and I am proud to be the director of the California Rehabilitation and Sports Therapy Clinic in Irvine (Spectrum). I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a Major in Biopsychology and a Minor in Exercise and Health Science. I went on to get my Masters in Physical Therapy from Western University, where I finished at the top of my class. I have been a Board Certified Physical Therapist for more than 15 years.

At California Rehab we will always provide our patients with excellent care. Each patient will be treated as an individual throughout their experience with us. We will work closely with physicians to see that we improve the patient’s quality of life as quickly as possible. In addition to therapy appointments, we will provide each patient with exercises and activities to do at home to ensure a speedy recovery and to prevent future injuries. We are always available to answer any and all questions you may have about your treatment and therapy goals. We look forward to working with you in the future.

Kim Rieff

My name is Kim Rieff and I have been licensed as a Physical Therapist Assistant since 2004. I received my BA in Criminal Justice from Chapman University in 1992 and played three years for Chapman’s Women’s Basketball team. While I was working in the criminal justice field in the early ‘90’s, I herniated my L4-5 disc and had to go to physical therapy in an out-patient orthopedic setting. It was at that time that I felt physical therapy would be a great field for me to be in, especially since I sustained numerous injuries in the years I played sports. I felt my experience as a patient would enhance not only my skills, but also empathy towards the patients I would see. I started out as a physical therapy aide in 1995 in our Irvine clinic. I got accepted into Cerritos College’s Physical Therapy Assistant program in 2002. After graduating with Highest Honors in 2004, I was licensed by the state of California as a PTA. One of my favorite aspects of being a clinician is getting to know the patients that I see and working with our physical therapists to come up with the best treatment plan for our patients.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going to the gym, playing golf, and reading.

I graduated from USC with my degree in Occupational Science in 1992. After working in various settings and with different rehabilitation populations, I continued my education and received my Certification in Hand Therapy in 2002.

At Cal Rehab we pride ourselves on individualized care and treatment plans to assist each patient to meet their goals. As a hand therapist, I specialize in the care and rehabilitation of hand, wrist, and elbow injuries.

Marianne Neale

My name is Marianne Neale. I obtained my Physical Therapy qualification in South Africa. After working in a busy hospital for two years, I decided to do clinic work and became interested in joint issues, sports injuries, chronic pain, and the post operative care of patients who had undergone orthopaedic surgery. I subsequently relocated to California and took the State Board exams in 2004. I have worked at California Rehab in Irvine since 2005, where I have been able to continue my work in Outpatient Orthopaedics. I am also a Clinical Instructor and serve as a mentor for DPT students from Chapman University. Patients often comment on the good atmosphere at Cal Rehab. I believe this comes from a team approach and staff members who enjoy their work and care about their results.
