Following a career as a professional dancer with Ithaca Ballet, Bob graduated from SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse in 1991 with his degree in Physical Therapy.  In 1995 he formed his own company in Manhattan, Turner Physical Therapy PC, where he specialized in Performing Arts and Dance Medicine serving many professional dance companies and Broadway shows.  Combining efforts with his wife, Kim Gibilisco, in 2000, they began to offer Pilates as a continuum in the patient experience of rehabilitating from injuries. This collaborative effort sparked his intense desire to improve the quality of the rehabilitative experience so that their patients and clients returned to work as stronger, more intelligent movers who understood how to prevent injury through awareness.

Bob earned his Board Certification in Orthopedics by the American Physical Therapy Association in 1998 and was re-certified in 2008.  Interested in further developing his clinical practice, Bob began his studies in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. He graduated from Tri-State College of Acupuncture with a Master’s Degree in Acupuncture in 2004, followed by his Master’s of Oriental Medicine in 2005. Bob graduated the transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy program at Arcadia University in May 2017.

As a life long learner, clinician, educator and leader, Bob’s passion is in developing creative opportunities for professionals to enhance their patient outcomes and maximize their own professional growth.
