Patient Testimonials

  • “Diane Mayo helped me a great deal during my eight visits to physical therapy. The girls at the front desk were friendly and nice. I gave my name once and I never had to give my name again during the rest of my visits. Thank you all, keep up the good work.”

  • “My eight visits to physical therapy was wonderful...Mary Jane was everything a physical therapist should be, and everything a caring and giving person should be. I am impressed.”

    Leonard A. Zivitz, MD

  • “I had Tom Poole for a therapist. He was great. He knew what he was doing. Although I doubted myself, he always encouraged me and he never let me fall. He was always there with me, ready to catch me. If I ever have to have Physical Therapy again, I would want Tom as my therapist again. Thank you, Tom Poole, for never letting me down.”

  • “I saw Kelly Parker who was very friendly. I was nervous about going but she always made me feel comfortable. I had a brain injury and had trouble with memory. So there were times I would cry while I was at my appointment because I felt embarrassed and not very smart when I couldn't remember things. Kelly told me it was ok and that my memory would eventually come back.

    Kelly would do exercises with me and activities that helped with my memory. So there were no tears after, because with all that she taught me, I was feeling successful. She always accommodated my schedule so I could come in after work.

    Kelly was wonderful and I thank her for all she did to help get me back on track with my memory issues.”
