"Joe was an amazing therapist. He really listened to my concerns and took the extra time to explain exercises. I was feeling hopeless about my knee pain before working with him. Now I am able to do my cycling classes as much as I want."

" I was hesitant to sign up at first because I've done physical therapy before, but this place is different. Joe is professional, compassionate, and patient. He really helped guide my recovery and now I am back to running again! Thanks man."

" I've had nagging back pain for years. When I got my evaluation done by Joe, I could tell he really cared about helping me. Not only am I back to my usual routine, but I feel the best I have felt in a long time. I don't know where I would be if I hadn't picked up the phone and called him. Worth every penny."
