Patient Testimonials

Kasia is incredible at what she does…

I called Focus Therapy because I was dealing with a prolonged knee injury I suffered while playing basketball. Not having much experience at all with PT, I was hesitant whether it would achieve any success. I was matched up with Kasia Kilijanek, who immediately took a professional approach to fixing my knee issues. What I appreciated about Kasia was she was willing to try new things to work on the issue at hand. Kasia is incredible at what she does, and is incredibly passionate about helping you return to your normal self. As well, she is incredibly personable and makes PT fun! I cannot recommend Kasia enough. She is an incredible physical therapist.

For Kasia and Kyle

I wanted to thank you both for helping me recover. You both gave me a sense of control over my recovery. Importantly, you both counseled me to chill, but push when it felt good to do so. That balance was really key to finding myself where I am now.
Although I’ll always probably live with some tightness and discomfort, I’ve been able to get back to doing what I love and find new meaning in it. I had a trip to Patagonia where I didn’t know if I’d be able to walk into the mountains, but I was astonished by what my body was capable. I am SO SO SO thankful to the two of you for guiding me through the post-HW removal phase of recovery. I was a sad lost puppy when I came into Focus PT and I left with an organized path forward.
Thank you both so much for your support! Brad
