The McKinney staff is fantastic. The length of my therapy helped a lot and I′ll miss y′all!
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.
The treatment I had was great and I will definitely use you in the future if needed!
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.
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.
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!

John began working at GTC in October 2016. John has worked in outpatient orthopedics in varying settings with diverse patient populations. He is passionate about sports and working with young athletes, but enjoys treating patients of all ages and activity levels. He is also certified in dry needling and has found significant benefits with the use of dry needling for decreasing pain, improving function, and accelerating return to prior level of function in his patients.
John is married to his wife Kristina, and they are expecting their first child in October. He enjoys weightlifting, shooting, and working on his car.
John’s personal philosophy is: “As a physical therapist, I believe my greatest role to my patients is as an educator. Physical therapy is unique in /the healthcare industry, in that we get to spend much more time with each patient than a medical doctor or other healthcare professional. I do my best to take advantage of this time to help educate patients about the source of their pain, to explain medical terminology in a way that is easily understandable, and to teach them how they can improve the quality of their movement to reduce pain, improve function, prevent injury, and increase athletic performance.”
John is the clinic manager and sees patients at the Greater Therapy Center location in South Lewisville.
