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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
The McKinney staff is fantastic. The length of my therapy helped a lot and I′ll miss y′all!

Career experiences: My experience is primarily in outpatient orthopedics and sports medicine. I’ve had a wide range of clinical experience ranging from working with farmers and ranchers in rural Nebraska, to working at a training center where I worked with athletes from the NFL, US Olympic team, foreign national teams and youth sports. I love working with patients of all ages and with various orthopedic conditions but have a particular passion for working with recreational athletes.
Personal interests/hobbies : I love being active and exercising. I played football, basketball and high jumped growing up. Participating and training for these sports led to a passion for weight training and led me to pursue a career in physical therapy. When I’m not at work I enjoy spending time with my wife Amber, friends, family, participating in recreational sports and church activities.
Personal statement: I absolutely love getting people out of pain and back to the activities they love and enjoy! The body has an extraordinary design and has an amazing ability to adapt and I thrive on getting to show patients what they can be capable of again, when recovering from injury or surgery.
