The McKinney staff is fantastic. The length of my therapy helped a lot and I′ll miss y′all!
I had a great physical therapist, Sandy at Flower Mound. Everyone was great, my injury will take a year or so before I can get back to physical activity, but the staff has provided me with the tools to aid my recovery. Thanks.
Please praise this staff for their high level of professionalism and high level of encouraging their patients to do better. The atmosphere was upbeat, sunny, comfortable and very nurturing of hope & self-confidence.
This is my third time going to the GTC in Arlington. The staffs there are wonderful. They will always be my physical therapy center. The staffs- Chris, Jamail, Frashy, Cory, Shauna and Lisa- thank you for making me feel at ease.
The treatment I had was great and I will definitely use you in the future if needed!
I was a patient at GTC twice in 8 years, and received excellent PT which allowed me to care for my young children on my own again. Sandy and her team were amazing, and I continue to refer friends to her. Thank you!
Shauna and Heather are great. The facilities are top-notch and spotlessly clean. A lot of care has been taken to get the most benefit out of each session for the patient. A pleasure to be here.
