Who I Am
Dr. David Harvitz, DPT
Dr. David Harvitz, DPT is the owner of ReNew, your concierge physical therapy service in Pensacola. Dr. Dave has spent the last 10 years working in various orthopedic settings refining his manual therapy skills and now brings those skills to your doorstep. He received a Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise Science in 2007, and then a Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2010, both from the University of Pittsburgh, the #1 ranked school in the country for physical therapy. Since then, Dr. Dave has taken his orthopedic and manual therapy continuing education seriously, progressing through the Manual Therapy Certification track through the University of St. Augustine. He specializes in treating the issues other healthcare practitioners struggle to identify and treat properly. Dr. Dave utilizes a unique treatment approach that relies less on traditional tests and measures and more on your response to specific manual techniques. This approach tends to be much more specific in identifying your actual dysfunction or pain syndrome, allowing for a shorter duration of treatment and fuller healing.
ReNew Pensacola PT is something that was born out of Dr. Dave’s love for his patients and frustration with the constraints of the current medical system. For 10 years now he has worked for either big companies or corporations that mainly care about the bottom line. They also refuse to operate outside the box and they continue to bow to the whims of insurance companies and government over-regulation. He refuses to do that. No more cut corners or compromising the quality of care just because insurance companies demand it. ReNew is completely cash-based and no insurance is accepted. This means freedom. Freedom to heal, freedom to perform, freedom to be pain-free. Dr. Dave will personally come to your home, evaluate and diagnosis your specific pain syndrome or movement dysfunction, and set up a one on one treatment plan for you. There’s no need to start with a referral from a physician.

What People Are Saying
"Dave has treated me for multiple injuries due to a major car accident. First with my neck, his recommendation required less work and visits than my chriopractor said would be needed so I decided to go with his plan and he was exactly right. My neck was back to normal way sooner with way fewer visits which saved me tons of money. Next up has been the ongoing treatment for my hip. Dave has extensive knowledge that I just was not getting in a clinic with more traditional Physical Therapy. My progress under Dave's care has far surpassed all expections of my surgeon and doctors. You can trust Dave from ReNew Concierge Physical Therapy with your own healing journey."
"Dave is one who I can say truly cares about the work he does. He’s not one who’s in a rush to get to he next patient but rather has a passion to get to the root problems of people’s pain. He take his time to thoroughly examine you and he is one you can trust. Highly recommend Dave. You’ll be in good hands."
"Dave is probably the most knowledgeable and professional DPT that I have had the honor to work with. Dave takes the time to make sure his patients understand why they are in physical therapy, why physical therapy is so important in their recovery and what they can do to see the greatest outcome from physical therapy. Dave makes sure that not only while he is performing the physical therapy on a patient he is explaining to them what he is doing and how they are benefiting from it. This is not a common practice that you see anymore. Dave has the best bedside manner when working with patients he treats them as if they were part of his family. The knowledge that Dave has when using manual therapy techniques is something that not a lot of therapists have and it can really help patients with chronic pain.. We still to this day have patients that come in and specifically request him as their therapist. You cannot go wrong using Renew Concierge Physical Therapy for your therapy services. You or your family member will be in the best hands possible when working with Dave."
