I want to let all know that this is a great therapy office. During my time there I began to get a good understanding of the people and what they do for you. For a long time I had very little movement in my shoulders and lower back. Since going to this clinic it is much better for me and I can reach a lot better than I could. Also walking has gotten better somewhat. These people do great work with you and have you feeling a lot better each visit. My time is over and I’m doing better and would’ve like to have had more time with them. I want everyone to know that this is a good place to go for your treatment. Much love to all.
– Reginald Cole
Dr. Huffman and his staff are the best of the best!! I have been a patient of Dr. Huffman for years and I can attest to how professional, helpful, funny and kind that he is. His team, Joe, Mike and Tra, are great to work with. It’s always a great atmosphere when I go to therapy. Hands down, one of the best physical therapy clinics around!!
