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.

You cannot get better care and treatment than you get with Gigi and her staff Considerable improvement in my mobility in my neck. Can’t say enough good about Gigi!! She is incredible.

“My doctor recommended a physical therapist who had been successfully treating Lymphedema. I was in terrible shape; my left leg & foot were 2 & 1/2 times larger than normal. Could not wear a shoe, slacks or capris. Gigi began treatment immediately. After 7 weeks of massage and wearing a compression cast, my leg & foot returned to normal. Gigi is well educated, up-to-date on new methods, knowledgeable, compassionate, kind, and thorough. The office staff is organized, efficient & friendly.”
