What Our Clients Say

Lee Fay

Early in October I began Physical Therapy after Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery in Atlanta by noted surgeon Robert Titelman, who referred me to Bryant Physical Therapy of Ellijay, and I’m most grateful he suggested the Bryant people. I was assigned to a therapist (Brett) and an assistant (Melinda) who have stayed with me for two sessions weekly for the past 12 weeks.
Both my surgeon and I have been extremely satisfied with the results. My range of motion and my strength have increased dramatically as measured by regular evaluations and I look forward to returning soon to complete regular activities. They have been thoroughly professional, yet personal, challenging yet kind.
The support staff has tailored my sessions to my schedule and the facilities are extremely clean and state of the art. I would recommend Bryant Physical Therapy to anyone who needs Physical Therapy. I am 82 years old.
