What Our Patients Say

Great experience! Joe Elmer is personable and unhurried. Knows his stuff! Very calm, laidback clinic. Highly recommend!!

Debbie Wright

I started seeing Dr. Elmer only yesterday.. For the first time in 3 years I was able to get out of the bed with no pain!! I usually cry every morning from the pain, but this morning I cried tears of JOY. It was such a relief to simply get up out of my bed!!!

Amy Kelton

It is the people here that make this place so special. From the time you walk through the door till the day you graduate, you are made to feel at ease. I enjoy each day I go to therapy here and they always push me to do better myself.

Michael Hughes

The best PT experience I have ever had. They got me from not being able to raise my leg off the table, after a complete knee replacement, to moving at will. Great experience from walking in the door to going out the door.
