The only reason I even felt the need to rate a 2 star instead of 1 was only because of Sandy, the PA I saw a few weeks ago and Xavia at the front desk. Both ladies were extremely nice, caring and know the true meaning of patient care.To make a long story short, Shannon Elqorchi, who is the PT I was scheduled to see today to start what I thought was my treatment was disgusting to say the least. As someone in the medical field, I know what it is to care for patients and exhibit empathy and so on but this woman dismissed me because I was confused about their process after spending 45 minutes to an hr with Sandy during my intake weeks ago just for her to want to do the same thing which seemed redundant after already going over that weeks ago and completing intake forms online. I do not plan on retuning and have made my attorney, who referred me there aware of this nasty interaction. Do better!

If you’re looking for a clean, safe, knowledgeable place that will physically get you better and back to your self prior to your injury, then look no further!!!Charmaine has a very professional bedside manner. She is attentive, genuinely cares & constantly checking with her patient’s progress to ensure maximum results even if that mess slowing down. She develops report, always has a smile on her face, please at to work with and talk to. She’s made recommendations to assist me in journey to healing outside of the office to compliment the P.T. She provides. She’s very respectful to both my daughter and I. The staff is great! Xavia. Is a pleasant and funny without loosing her professionalism in the process and will jump in to assist when needed. All of the staff her no matter what their official role are kind and helpful. You can go wrong!I was recommended by my mother who was treated my Shannon,.owner. Bottom line, if you choose this practice to help you on your journey to better physical health., not only will you receive excellent care, but you begin to feel like family even with the other patients. That level of customer service has seem to be a lost art. age in medical care, unfortunately. So I am very glad to report that they have treated three generations of women in my family with no complaints. My daughter had a hard time being sent in many places to to the nature of her sports injury, she has made great process! When we started this journey, she was walking in so much pain, and now she has been able to start jogging, at this paste, she should be able to begin paying her sport one time for the upcoming season.I wish Charmaine, Physical Therapist, all of the luck on her new journey, we will miss your smiling face and tentative ear, and of course your excellent work, it’s been a pleasure !!!!!

My first going to this physical therapy business on second floor. Look for rug with business name. Soon as I walked in the door signed in on the sheet. I did my paperwork through the portal to make it easier. When I arrived at the office receptionist took my credentials and referral. Then I was greeted by Dr.Cindy for patient evaluation. I was pleased with the plan to help me get back on pace with my health and fitness.
