- Testimonials -
My name is Keith Warman. I have had nine surgeries in the last 36 months for different types of injuries, mostly my shoulders and my right knee. Before I met Jim Romo, and his staff, I was being treated by an assembly line physical therapist company. When that company stopped all active treatment, I stopped seeing them, and found a new hands-on approach that Jim gives every patient, One on One, undivided attention. Jim Romo is responsible for any progress I have made, and I feel good. I doubt that I would be able to do what I can, without his help. So, get out of the assembly line and get the personal attention you should have had in the first place. Go see Reaction Physical Therapy at Smokey Point!!!
The entire staff both full time and part time were more than I expected. They were knowledgeable, friendly, courteous and caring. I have recommended them to several people. They really made my sessions enjoyable, never boring or tedious. I know this may sound strange, but I would actually look forward to going again, if ever needed. They kept me well advised about future appointments. Kept themselves physically fit and the office and exercise areas were always spotless, yet ever so professional. Thank You!
