Hear from a Happy Patient
Lester is one of the best for physical therapy! He doesn't just show you an exercise sheet and say 'now do these in front of me' and then send you on your way. He actually treated my Achilles with therapy I could not do at home. This is rare!!!! After the first 2 visits he gave me some exercises that can be done at home, but continued treatment in the office for the things I could not do. This has been so helpful. I've seen many PT’s and I will not go past the first visit if a PT merely shows me exercises and tells me to come back 3 times a week just to monitor how I am doing the them. To me it means, don't waste my time. Lester is the BEST! Thank you for your help Lester.
