Hear what other HPRC patients have to say.
Having this be my first experience with PT for my neck and back I am truly amazed at the results. It has been an eye opening experience that PT can make the difference in healing from injury.
Ms. McCook has been wonderful in helping me regain more mobility and comfort and in experiencing much less pain in my daily activities. I continue to be able to do more that I had given up on after having been so very active all my life.
Kelly is a exceptional physical therapist and I would recommend or refer her to anyone needing PT.
Kelly is awesome! I have improved by leaps & bounds!
I have several bad disks in my lower back. I was to have an epidural shot to ease the pain and create mobility. After 4 sessions with Dunny, I feel maybe the shot can wait. Thank you for the excellent treatment!
I was treated with professional care and with respect & kindness. I would go to this office again if my doctor referred me. Thank you for all you did for me. I am much better now.
Dr. Kyle is awesome. Kind, gentle and effective. Without his help, I would be in a nursing home. Nicole at the desk is also courteous and very helpful.
