    Absolutely Wonderful

    Testimonial: 2018-08-27
    "Linda and her staff are absolutely wonderful. They are compassionate, caring, patient, supportive, professional and a delight to be around. Physical therapy is hard but I always looked forward to my sessions because we had fun and I knew I was receiving great care. I have a very complicated case and while seeing her after my third surgery I had to make the difficult decision to have a finger amputated.

    She was instrumental in helping me make the right decision then recover emotionally and physically from the amputation. She is very knowledgeable and explained everything to me so I understood my injury, the healing process and how each exercise would help me.

    Each patient gets one on one care every session and given a treatment plan tailored to them individually instead of just a standard set of exercises for a given injury. I highly recommend her for anyone needing hand or upper extremity physical therapy." -   Dina P
