Thomas P. | Feb 01, 2024
Very happy with the services provided by GiGi, Ron, and Wendy. GiGi explained all the steps needed to help me regain my posture, correct methods of balance, exercises needed to strengthen my hips and leg muscles. Ron was extremely attentive to make sure my walking and stair exercises were done on each visit. I was given treatment for my Naprapathy that has improved my ability to walk further without chronic pain. Wendy always made sure that I was notified by texts and handwritten memos for all my appointments. Great group of caring professionals that I will highly recommend to all future veterans to seek their services. Respectfully, Phil Jeleniewski Totally satisfied client.

I have not been to a physical therapist that actually listens, motivates, and pushes you until I started coming here! I have seen both Gigi, and Ron and I have had the best treatment I’ve ever had before. I’ve been in rotating physical therapy for three years now, and I can say they’ve given me the best treatment which has actually helped me feel better! I will always have my referrals sent here as long as they keep giving me referrals to physical therapy.

I'm a disabled combat veteran who has found more than a great physical therapist but some good people and friends. I have been with the VA physical therapy program for years and in many locations, and I've not had a team dedicated to fixing my pain, and fixing my weak spots anywhere else. Thank you all of you.
