My experience at pt Health was a positive one in every way! My physiotherapist was friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about what I needed. She was very patient with me as I became familiar with the exercises and made me feel comfortable asking questions. The front desk were welcoming and friendly every time that I visited. I/’m happy to recommend the services of this clinic – they are the best!

Lynn C – Google Review





I found the staff to be very friendly and welcoming. All staff that I encountered showed a very high level of professionalism that made me feel confident in the care they were providing. I found this center through my own research but would have no problems recommending it to family or friends (and have already done that). If the need should arise again would definitely use their services again.
