Meet Our Therapists

Since 1995 Century City Physical Therapy, Inc . (CCPT) has been owned and operated by two certified physical therapists: Susan L. Bass, PT, DPT and Stacy Barrows, PT, DPT, GCFP,PMA®-CPT. Together  we have over 40 years of clinical experience, working with some of the finest physicians and surgeons in the Los Angeles area. We serve a number of physicians based in Century City and in neighboring areas such as Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.

We provide a unique style of care in this age of high-tech, low-touch therapy. We believe in individual patient outcomes, so our services are highly personalized. We are not a “shake and bake,” nor a “one size fits all” practice. Our one-on-one therapy sessions are specifically designed to meet the needs and goals of each patient and their physician. CCPT also has expanded their services to accommodate referrals for personal training and exercise to assist with weight management.
