Best place ever. I had at least 4 separate injuries/surgeries where I needed therapy for my knee and back. Each time Tyler, Seth and crew got me back on track. You can't beat their personal attention to your specific needs.
I came to BRPT-Lake at the Lee Drive location after ACL reconstruction and meniscus surgery. Jamie, Donna and YuYi have all been just wonderful! I'll be glad when therapy is over, but I will miss all these ladies.
This place is amazing. The people are outstanding. I love the way they explain what to do and why and will remind you when you forget. They are kind and realize you may be hurting. They are always timely and friendly. I thank all of you.
My pain was so bad it was impacting my running and making my training very difficult and painful. With their help I was able to achieve my goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon! I am so thankful to all the staff for all they did for me and making me feel like I was part of their family. Love you all!!!
