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.
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 McKinney staff is fantastic. The length of my therapy helped a lot and I′ll miss y′all!
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!
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.
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.
Degree and school attended: University of Wisconsin, Madison, Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy

Her continuing education has led her to an eclectic approach to patient care with a focus on manual therapy and return to function through progressive exercise programs. Over the years she has had an interest in shoulders and feet in particular and has attended additional studies in both areas. She has worked with a variety of ages from pediatric to geriatric. Sandy has also had the privilege of serving as clinic manager of three different clinics two of which she helped open.
She is a member of the APTA / TPTA.
Sandy is involved in her church, enjoys spending time with her husband and daughters, loves to travel and enjoys working out at the gym. She also enjoys being a part of her local community and, in particular, the women’s club as an officer.
“I have been blessed to have had a long career in physical therapy watching the field grow and change over the years. What remains is the ever present need for continued guidance of patients in recovery from illness, injury and surgery to obtain optimal functional outcomes. I enjoy being a part of that while getting to know each of my patients. It is said that, ‘What you don’t use, you lose.’ I do think many of the ills we face today are effected by our lifestyle choices. I try to have and encourage others to have an active and healthy lifestyle.”
