"Terry got me "back up and running" much quicker than the surgeon who operated on my foot had predicted. She explained everything she was doing, both anatomically and physiologically, which I really appreciated. She was always on time, super pleasant and always professional.
I'm an active person with a job and kids and I appreciated the time she took during my visits to maximize speeding up my recovery.The only negative thing I can say is that I'm kind of bummed I no longer need PT with Terry as I actually enjoyed going!"
