“Following shoulder surgery the first part of  February 2013, I began Physical Therapy at Foothills Sports Medicine on Kyrene Rd., Tempe (Formally Performance Physical Therapy), the second week of March, 2013.

All therapy personnel, Carlos, Kacie, Crystal and Daniel have gone above and beyond to attend to my recovery.  They have treated me like family and as if they are my personal trainers.

I have nothing but high regards for their professional demeanor during this extremely difficult time for me.  They all have pushed me, and pushed me to the limit.  It has all paid off !

My Doctor advises that I am recovering at a faster rate than expected.  All of that is due to the attention that I have had and continue to receive from everyone at the facility.

Thank you one and all !!” – Bill C.
