Rita Miller, PT, MPT, CSCS is the owner and Physical Therapist at Direct Physical Therapy Boise, PLLC.. Having recently relocated to Boise from Kansas City, Rita decided to start a mobile practice that delivers outpatient care to patient’s homes, places of work, or other convenient locations in the Treasure Valley.
