"I am a personal trainer and always refer my clients to this clinic as well as use their services for myself. They are extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and effective. I know myself and my clients will be in good hands. I have yet to see someone go here for physio and not have a positive experience or see great results."
"An amazing, knowledgeable team! Someone is always with you and checking up on you. The physiotherapist put a lot of care into treatment, research and changes things up when needed. Feels like home - a great feeling when dealing with an injury and WSIB, to have someone care and help you!"
