About Us

Behind the awesome service.


Randy S. Hicks, MPT, Owner

Randy’s involvement with Sports & Orthopedic Physical Therapy started long ago as an undergraduate at Fresno State. While completing his Sports Medicine B.S. degree, Randy received an internship at the clinic and following completion was hired as a PT aide.

As part of the esteemed Fresno State University Sports Medicine program, Randy was the head student athletic trainer for the 1999 Fresno State football team where he had the privilege of working alongside world class physicians, providing on field care for athletes and traveling the country with the team. Upon completion of his B.S., Randy was accepted to the Fresno State Master of Physical Therapy program and completed his MPT degree, Magna Cum Laude, in 2004.

After working in two outpatient private practices as a staff therapist for several years, Randy was fortunate to acquire Sports & Orthopedic Physical Therapy in 2012. Since that time Randy has been dedicated to building a first class facility, expanding the practice, and growing the excellent reputation Sports & Orthopedic Physical Therapy has established for decades.

When Randy is not in the clinic, he is spending time with his family. Randy, his wife, and two boys enjoy any activity on the water but nothing more than wakeboarding and tubing on Millerton Lake. Randy also enjoys cycling and BBQ 12 months a year!


Michelle L. Donovan, DPT

Michelle began her education at Fresno Pacific University, where she competed in Track & Field for 3 years. She graduated in 2011 with her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology: Pre-Physical Therapy. Prior to applying to graduate school, Michelle worked as a Track and Field Coach, focusing on long jump and triple jump events. She then completed her doctorate degree at Fresno State and graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2016. Her prior education and experience has led her to accumulate experience in various settings: outpatient orthopedics, acute-care, neuro-outpatient, and aquatic therapy.

Michelle’s passion for physical therapy comes from her lifelong love of participating and competing in sports (track & field, swimming, gymnastics), working out and helping others to reach their own goals.

When Michelle isn't working, she enjoys rock-climbing, reading, and spending time with her husband.
