“I’m on my second knee surgery and I’m very impressed by the attitudes and professionalism of the staff there! Everyone, (especially Jeff, Michelle, and Itamar) are very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about the therapy that is right for you. The clinic is large, organized, and very clean. The staff is caring and always remembers my name. My PT Michelle answers all my questions about my injury and other therapy questions. She is always kind and compassionate. I had a choice where I had my rehabilitation. I’m glad I chose Foothills.”
“Just “graduated” from Foothills and I cannot say enough about my experience there. From the moment you walk in the door, you are made to feel as though your care and well-being are their top priority. The staff is empathetic, thorough, and never rushed. Every exercise, treatment, and concern is explained. It’s weird, but I looked forward to my sessions and seeing everyone. Even those not assigned to your case seem to take a real interest in your progress. Thank you, Foothills!”
