Meet The Team

After a wreck or sports injury, some patients travel to a wide variety of doctors. Unfortunately, doctors aren’t often speaking to each other or even treating at the same time. What if medicine was different? What if instead of pulling a patient in a million different directions doctors worked as a team? No egos. No right way. No wrong way. Just the best treatment for the patient. Our body isn’t made up of just bones or muscles. All of these parts work together, so isn’t it only fitting healthcare do the same?

At Precision Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine we believe healthcare should take a team approach.  Combining the best of sports medicine, physical therapy and chiropractic we provide our patients the most comprehensive, convenient care possible.  Whether it’s whiplash or arthritis, we rely on open communication and collaboration to utilize the variety of resources and expertise available to meet and exceed our patients’ goals.  Our team’s mission is to eliminate pain, restore function and get you back to peak performance without the use of potentially harmful drugs or major surgeries.

Meet Dr. Jeff Raiffie, D.C.

After injuring my low back (disc herniation) in the Marine Corps 28 years ago, I refused surgery at the Naval hospital, and the med board accepted a package to end my military career. I found myself seeking treatment from the same chiropractor I saw as a high school athlete, and as fate would have it, he was also a Marine from the Vietnam era. Well, lo and behold, he single-handedly restored me to 100% peak performance. I never had to have the surgery that was recommended by the Naval doctors. I was so inspired by what happened that I quickly set my sights on helping other people as he had helped me. No harmful drugs or unnecessary surgery was needed for me to experience a complete recovery, and I knew providing effective care with a great patient outcome was my calling.

Since that time, I’ve earned 2 Bachelor of Science degrees (Physiology and Human Biology) and a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree. I have completed adventure races, marathons, and I live a healthy, active lifestyle—one that I think so many people are robbed of when they get addicted to pain pills and areas of the body become compromised by unnecessary surgical procedures, like the one that the Naval medical board had recommended for me.

I made a promise to myself that I would do everything in my power to make sure that no one I came into contact with would go down that preventable path—a path of side effects due to needless, over-prescribed medication and surgeries that often never work and leave many people in worse condition than before.

We started Precision Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine to give Arizonans a look at what medicine can be. Here, patients don’t fall through the cracks or get pulled in a million different directions. I wanted to create a place where doctors work together for the good of the patient. I wanted a friendly and effective place where doctors from different fields combine forces to fix the cause of health issues and teach patients about real, preventative healthcare.

I’m thrilled to have an incredible team that shares this vision, and we’re excited to be a part of your healthcare team!

Meet Amy Wing, PA-C

Amy spent her childhood in the rural southwest (Utah and Arizona) before moving to the capital area in New York in her teens. She was one of six children in a household with a school teacher father and mother who suffered from post-polio syndrome. As such, Amy was exposed to trigger point therapy early in life, as her young mother discovered that addressing trigger points was able to alleviate some loss of function and delay some of the approaching post-polio paralysis she began to experience in her 30’s. Amy returned to Arizona in her early 20’s to attend Arizona State University, where she earned dual Bachelor of Science degrees in Human Nutrition and Exercise Science with a Wellness concentration. Her undergraduate education has informed a focus on the role of lifestyle management in dysfunction and disease. 

Amy’s decision to pursue a career in medicine was based in a desire to work closely with individuals, empowering them to understand their role in their own wellness. Since earning her Master of Medical Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Midwestern University in 2004, she has obtained a variety of experience with different patient populations, with a particular interest in preventive, integrative, functional, and restorative medicine. She enjoys partnering with patients, as part of the treatment team, with the goal of personalized care. Amy brings extensive general medical knowledge to her practice, having spent many years in primary care before shifting focus to physical medicine. Amy lives with her partner, daughter, and two small dogs in Chandler, Arizona.  She also has an adult daughter attending ASU Phoenix. Amy enjoys art, musical theater, live music, travel, and exploring new ideas through audiobooks and podcasts.
