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.

Richard Kelly and Dena Aitken, therapists working in the fields of physical and occupational therapy, had a vision of a different kind of therapy environment—one that was relaxed and provided evidence-based treatment in a therapist and clinical driven setting. In the summer of 1997, they acted on their dream by founding the Greater Lewisville Therapy Center.
Encouraged by patients having a good experience and positive outcomes and the enthusiastic support of the local physicians for their concept, Richard and Dena opened a second center in Plano, Texas. Today, GTC operates more than 15 centers in DFW area cities each operated by a licensed therapist and a staff that focuses first on patient needs and comfort. Richard and Dena continue to manage GTC and hope to expand their vision into other Texas communities in the future.
