Patient Education Resources:
I started going here a few weeks ago and have nothing but positive remarks for this physical therapy clinic! Elana is an extremely friendly, approachable, prompt, and talented PT. I really like her approach to treatment. Additionally, Lissette at the front desk is so welcoming and always ensures a comfortable environment for patients!K.B.
