I had Michael as my physical therapist. I had a knee injury that greatly upset me because i just wanted to get back into the gym and after six weeks I'm in the gym at least 3 days a week, squatting and deadlifting and all! He is so kind and comforting and knowledgeable. He always asks for consent... before touching which is greatly appreciated. Love this place couldn't recommend more!!read more

Everyone at Professional Physical Therapy is wonderful. From the time you walk in until the time you leave, EVERYONE from the staff treats you like you are the only one there. The secretary is awesome. She greets you with the biggest smile and is always ready to accommodate you with appointments... that are in accordance with your schedule. She does this with a smile, even when you need to change an appointment.Then the physical therapists are all awesome. They work so well together. They are a team. If I have one therapist and I’m finished with an exercise, and Autumn (who is totally THE BEST!!) is not available, because she is helping someone else, another therapist will help out. They work so well as a team.The PTs look at the entire person. They push you as far as you can go and they are proud of you for all of your accomplishments. If you’re having a bad day, they understand and work with you.I highly recommend Professional Physical Therapy, because they are so wonderful to work with and are so understanding and friendly.read more

I have had physical therapy sessions with Professional since early this year. They are truly accommodating, gentle and expert therapists, and go to great lengths on behalf of their patients. I worked with them through the ‘dark days’ of a COVID hotspot, when they were able to instruct me via... tele-health. They were always patient as I learned the software and upgraded my camera and digital device. Their expertise is top notch, and I re-gained mobility in my neck through the therapy. I now attend sessions at the facility, and enjoy the same cheerful, patient attitude, and the expertise therapy, as I feel better each week. I recommend Professional highly.read more
