Carlee was just superb.
She took the time to tailor the treatment exactly to my needs, she was very skilled and knowledgeable, and she treated the underlying problem--a bunion--in a way that resulted in an outcome that a podiatrist told me could not happen (the effects of the bunion have been lessened significantly, and I have exercises that I will continue to use to keep it that way). All the staff were so nice.
Carlee is a great listener
She takes time and is inquisitive in pinpointing the issue. She's knowledgeable and has prescribed great exercises that are actively addressing my problems. And she's just fun to be around too. Feel lucky she's my PT.
