I have been seeing Jeanette for almost 4 months now and she has been a tremendous help with my pain and mobility. Not only do I enjoy her assistance with relieving my pain but I thoroughly enjoy her conversation and dedication to my healing. Always a great start to my day. Plus side-she never misses an appointment due to snow or inclement weather!read more
I highly recommend Dr. Richard Barnes to all of my friends. The level of professionalism, compassion, and care I received from his office have been outstanding. On my first visit there on December 2018 I was having morning pain and intermittent numbness in my hands and shoulders. I’m a side sleeper and I couldn’t sleep on my side anymore without waking up with severe numbness. I had tried all kind of pillows, massagers, heatpads, mattress toppers but nothing ever worked to relieve these issues. I was getting a bit desperate and I didn’t know where to turn for relief. One day I turned on my laptop and I searched for a Physical Therapist. That’s how I ended up in Dr. Barnes’s office. He told me he could help me but it would not be a quick fix and it would require consistency and discipline. I liked his straight shooter personality so I decided to give his treatment a try. After 2 months of consistent stretching and some other assigned exercises, my pain and numbness are almost gone. I have a daily stretching routine of 20 -30 min. I’m sleeping soundly on my side and life is good again. He is definitely my hero!!! Dianaread more
I brought my son here to evaluate a sprain and foot pain that didn’t seem to heal. Dr. Richard Barnes and the whole office were superlative in every way, welcoming us in and making us feel instantly at home. Amazingly Dr. Barnes had already observed my son walking in from the parking lot and could see some of his issues already. He kept us laughing while he diagnosed and educated us, and was able to significantly reduce my sons pain (so much so that he is actually playing soccer this same day). The path to healing and strengthening is now clear thanks to Eastside Physical Therapy and Richard Barnes. Strongly recommended!read more
These guys rock! I sprained my lumbar ligaments during rock climbing session and was due to fly home to Australia in three days time. Richard made room to fit me in his schedule for 2 sessions before I left. His diagnosis was spot on, which was later confirmed from a sport doctor back home. His knowledge of treatment gave me the mobility to catch the flight. The whole team really went above and beyond to assist me. They all have a positive attitude and great sense of humour to match. I will definitely be using these guys when I move here in November and will highly recommend them in the future.read more
The specialists at Eastside Physical Therapy did far more than provide a full recovery for my frozen shoulder—they made the long and difficult rehabilitation an engaging experience that I found myself looking forward to every week. It wasn’t just their encouragement, their respectful explanation of treatment, or even the daily brain teasers. It was the depth of caring that they put into every session. The people at Eastside Physical Therapy treated me like family and helped me recover from a painful condition with patience, respect, and dignity.
I would recommend Eastside Physical Therapy to any of my family and friends, and believe or not, I sometimes miss going.
I am so thankful for Mary! I came to her with a sore shoulder, after a year plus of exercise and finally a cortisone shot to stop the pain. Mary took down a serious list of notes, spent careful time examining, and finally brought out the medical book complete with pictures so I could see the structures she was describing to me. She took time to pinpoint the source of my pain, and time to explain to me what she thought and why she recommended certain exercises. With a combination of exercises, taping, ice and stim, and Mary's magic touch making sure I understood what she was aiming for, I could finally feel pain-free, and feel like I was working 'with' my body, rather than against it. Mary made sure I understood what was happening below the skin so I could keep my body aligned and the right muscles stretched and strengthened. - I am so grateful!
This was my first experience coming to a physical therapist. I was delighted with my progress and treatment. I would highly recommend family and friends. This team is amazing!
You are absolutely cooperative, helpful, courteous, and very caring. Always very neat and clean. If we ever need PT, we will come back to you.
