The Team

Eric Mills, P.T./Owner

I grew up in Klamath Falls, attending Ferguson Elementary, Brixner Jr. High, and Mazama High School. I became interested in a career in Physical Therapy after my best friend suffered a knee injury while we were playing high school football. He had surgery and physical therapy to rehab his knee. I was further inspired to pursue a career in healthcare after taking a human anatomy class in high school. I received a Bachelor of Science at Oregon State University in 1995 and earned my Master of Science in Physical Therapy in 1999 from the University of Montana.

My wife and I chose to move back to Klamath Falls to start our careers and eventually raise a family. She has been a teacher in the Klamath County School District since 1999 and currently enjoys teaching at Shasta Elementary School. We have two beautiful daughters that keep us very busy with various activities all over the state!

During my career as a Physical Therapist I have had the privilege of working with thousands of wonderful people throughout the Klamath Basin. These experiences include working in outpatient facilities and a home health rehab department. I am extremely proud to be the owner of BodyWorks Physical Therapy, where we strive to be the finest physical therapy clinic in Southern Oregon. My passion has always been to connect with my clients and invest in their care in a way that reveals genuine concern for their well-being. We are very excited to offer you a clinic where your care will always be the top priority.

Wendy Hartman, Office Manager

My husband and I have been in Klamath Falls for the past 15 years. We love the outdoor activities we have been able to experience from biking to climbing.

We have two amazing sons and two beautiful grandsons! We enjoy spending quality time with our family and making new memories.

My goal at BodyWorks is to make everyone feel as healthy and comfortable as they can be.

Thomas Bentley, P.T.

My parents moved to this area in 1978 from San Jose, California, just before my first birthday. I grew up
on a small farm along the Williamson River outside of Chiloquin. I graduated from Chiloquin High School
in 1995. I received a bachelor of science degree in psychology from Willamette University in 1999. I then
attended University of the Pacific in Stockton, California where I received a Master of science degree in
physical therapy in 2001.

I began my working career in physical therapy in August 2001 at Luke Klaja Physical Therapy, where I
worked for a total of 15 years. I started working for BodyWorks Physical Therapy in September 2016. I
have worked in an outpatient orthopedic setting for my entire career in physical therapy. I enjoy
working with patients of all ages to help them achieve their goals and recover from their injury or surgery.

My wife, Rachel, and I currently live just outside of Merrill with our 2 boys, Conrad (born in 2012) and
Clifford (born in 2015). I enjoy spending time with my family hiking, fishing, camping, and especially
snowmobiling. I also enjoy running and strength training.

Vincent Paulo F. Panganiban, P.T.

I completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Therapy at De LaSalle University in the Philippines in 2007 and obtained my Doctor’s Degree in Physical Therapy and Certificate in Allied Health Administration from University of Montana in 2018.

I have been working as a PT for 15 years with experience in acute care, skilled nursing rehab, in both home health and outpatient settings. I also have specialty training in Dorn Method and Clinical Neurodynamics. I served as the Director of Rehabilitation at Marquis Care Plum Ridge and Crystal Terrace of Klamath Falls for the past couple of years. 

     Outside of work, I enjoy travelling with my wife and daughter. In my free time my hobbies are: playing basketball, parkour training, playing the guitar, nature photography, and karaoke!

Benjamin Garcia, P.T.A

I was born and raised in Norfolk, Nebraska. I originally pursued and completed my Associate of Arts degree in Business Administration while working as a train conductor for a short-line railroad with a concentration in Management.

After transferring to a state college to complete my BA, I had a change of heart and started to become more involved with exercise and the human body. I took some time off from school and worked in the meantime. I then set up a meeting with the Director of the PTA program at Northeast Community College. After being accepted into the program, I made it a goal of mine to move out to the Pacific Northwest and the rest is history!

I chose this career path after being more involved with exercise and wondering how I could help others with their rehabilitation process. I now plan to stay in the Pacific Northwest with the goal of staying in outpatient orthopedics.

I have enjoyed exploring the various outdoor activities in Oregon. My dog Keno and I love chasing waterfalls together! I dedicate each weekend to exploring the Pacific Northwest and getting acquainted with my new found home.

Kris Hadd, Receptionist

I moved from Arizona to Klamath Falls in 1998 with my family. I’ve worked many different jobs around the Basin and have grown to enjoy customer service.

Outside of work I love spending time outdoors, especially camping and fishing. I also spend lots of time with friends and family. My husband and I have three children and eleven beautiful grandkids!

Emilie Hill, Patient Care Coordinator 

I was born and raised here in Klamath Falls. I graduated from Henley High School in 2019. Outside of work I enjoy lots of outdoor activities like paddle boarding, hiking, and camping.

Most of my time is spent with friends and family, including the newest member, my sweet black lab puppy!
