What Our Clients Say
I have almost completed my second set of treatments for total knee replacement (left knee in 2019 and this is right knee). I cannot imagine a more professional, effective program! I have worked with Larry and Mike and his staff for over a year. I started out by receiving therapy with Mike and his associate Priscilla. My wish was and is that to delay knee surgery. Mike and Priscilla have made my wish come true. They put my knee in place and I have been able to function most normally without further therapy or cortisone shots
I was so at ease and happy with the staff including the ladies in the office that I continued using the facility with their wellness program
I actually look forward to my visits that run around three times a week. If I have any problems that may occur with my leg, Mike is very open to a new exercise— and it works! There is always a greeting when I arrive. Everyone including the clients has formed a congenial group. We laugh and joke with each other
But the staff also takes their jobs seriously. They listen to us , they show real empathy to our problems. AND they make us better
Thanks for being there. I look forward to working with you for a long time
