Alyson Dorfman Ambassador.jpg

Alyson Dorfman

Founder/Business Development

Alyson originally stepped into the health care industry with a degree in Marketing and Entrepreneurship from the University of Washington Foster School of Business. When Alyson joined a premier sports rehab consortium in Seattle, the business consisted of 3 clinics (varying by brand and services offered). Alyson initiated and implemented strategic policy-driven change within the Company. Since her start there, she took on additional roles, from marketing strategy to business development, branding strategy, hiring/termination, developing and managing employee metrics and forging key partnerships, to name a few.

Later as the Company's Chief Operating Officer, she facilitated expansion into 4 new markets overseeing project management, build out, marketing, logistics, budgeting, timing, hiring, facility design, growth management 

Before founding Radius, Alyson took on corporate clients through a national musculoskeletal provider group. Supporting employers such as Costco and Nordstrom,  she implemented programs which systematically reduced companies' health care spend by 40% in the musculoskeletal category. Savings was realized through claims data analysis, and steerage of members toward less invasive, more effective care pathways. In addition to health care spend dollar savings, partnered companies measured positive changes in presenteeism and absenteeism.

Alyson sought to create a health care group that truly stood for patients first, not profits. In 2017, with a focus on clinical outcomes, patient experience and cost, Alyson founded Radius Physical + Sports Rehab in Grass Valley, CA. 

Outside of healthcare, you'll find Alyson at yoga, CrossFit, enjoying the Yuba River or out running with her dog, Lyla. She's thrilled to be back in Nevada City after 10 years.

Prior to joining Radius, Dr. Dickerson managed a team of doctors in Seattle where he helped patients recover from pain and injuries ranging from plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder, and rotator cuff tears, to low back pain, hip pain, and rehabilitation of post-surgical conditions. He follows the latest evidence and peer reviewed research to guide the care he and his team deliver. Seattle Met Magazine recognized Dr. Dickerson as a Top Doctor in his category. With an effective care model and countless patient success stories, in 2017 he moved from Seattle, WA to Grass Valley, CA to deliver high-quality care in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

Dr. Dickerson earned a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Arizona State University and earned the prestigious Academic Excellence award during his doctorate program at Palmer College in Iowa. While a member of the Sports Council at Palmer, he minimized injuries in athletes through pre- and post-event treatment. As Vice President of the Palmer Package Club, he excelled in training others in chiropractic techniques, orthopedic and neurological examinations, and rehabilitation/exercise protocols. And, through Palmer, he provided chiropractic care in Salvador, Brazil as a humanitarian aid worker, where he gained an acute awareness of the cultural disparity in healthcare. He graduated from Palmer Magna Cum Laude with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. After graduation he co-managed patient care in collaboration with a medical doctor outside of Chicago, IL.

Dr. Dickerson is originally from the Chicago metropolitan area. As an avid enthusiast of healthy and physically active living, you’ll find him anywhere he can get outside and move. He has particular interests in yoga, CrossFit, golf, basketball, volleyball, running, hiking, and mountain biking.
