Read What Customers Are Saying About The Doctors of Physical Therapy

DPT has improved my quality of life and activity tolerance. The staff is passionate, kind, knowledgeable, and professional. Prior to starting therapy, I had become “dependent” on the use of trigger point balls, deep massage with elbows, and over stretching. All of this would only give me temporary relief. Since starting treatment, I don’t obsessively need daily relief tools because I can hardly feel my pain. I am also able to Increase exercise without as much fear of aggravated the pain. I highly recommend them! Worth every penny spent!

I've been working with Dr. Stephanie for the past few months after being referred to this practice by a friend. It's really refreshing how they provide a personalized approach for each patient that they work with, you can tell they genuinely care about helping out their clients. I've been to other PT groups before and almost all of the other groups felt unpersonalized and rushed. I couldn't recommend this group enough to anyone in the Valley.

This is a really good PT shop. I have tried more than one. You receive direct, customized help from a PT. No assistant hand offs like many places. Highly recommended.

Background, when I began my Physical Therapy (PT) with The Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPT) I was a 59 year old active male with a torn Rotator and a torn Labrum in my left shoulder and was in the middle of a series of PRP injection treatments from a local Naturopathic Dr. who referred me to DPT.My softball, golf and boot camp activity were seriously affected by these tears. Between the PRP injections and PT, I was hoping to return to normal levels of participation in these activities ASAP. The Dr’s at DPT were very diligent, informative, caring and reassuring with their instructions, direction and guidance. The Dr’s would provide detailed action plans for me to follow between my appointments and would ensure that I knew how to perform each activity/exercise “correctly”. After each appointment, they would update the plan to provide new exercises to continue to repair and strengthen each of the muscle groups surrounding the injured shoulder.6 months after the PRP injections began and 4 months after the PT began, I have roughly 95% complete range of motion again with NO limitations. I recently started playing softball again – PAIN FREE in the shoulder!!Thanks to the great Dr’s at DPT for their efforts in getting this old man back in the game!

I have received physical therapy from many different providers over the years and I can say DPT is BY FAR the best yet. Most recently I found DPT after receiving treatment from two other local physical therapy clinics that could not get to the root of my problem. I struggled for nearly 1.5 years with knee pain and hip tightness. I could not squat, lunge, run, or walk up stairs without significant pain. The staff were all very welcoming and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. At DPT you are seen 1 on 1 with your Therapist which I found very helpful. Changes or additions to my treatment plan took seconds instead of days or weeks. I also received follow-up phone calls between visits to ensure no treatment adjustments needed to be made. I would HIGHLY recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy. Upon completion of my treatment I can once again barbell squat below parallel, run 10+ miles at a time, and hike... all without any pain or discomfort! I personally saw Dr. Stephanie Mundt, who was exceptionally knowledgeable and learned in the realm of Physical Therapy. My very first visit with her I received a care plan tailored to my specific injury. I felt VERY confident in her ability as a provider to hone in on the root cause of my ailments. After years of physical therapy experience including herniated discs, strained muscles, and strained tendons walking into DPT was a breathe of fresh air. Dr. Mundt, Dr. Tom, and all the providers at DPT know their stuff! This is the place to go hands down.

As a competitive bodybuilder, nothing frustrates me more than being sidelined because of an injury. Now that I've worked with Dr. Tom and Dr. Stephanie, I don't waste time being in pain because they get me back in the game. After a painful knee cartilage tear and PRP treatment, I was healed, BUT had developed a limp that I couldn't lose, even though I no longer needed to limp. Dr. Tom worked with me by teaching me how to correct my gait, and it worked! He video'd me walking, from the side and from the front, so I could see exactly what I was doing. Then he taught me exercises to strengthen my stride, and helped me practice walking correctly. It was a great experience! Athletes! Don't waste time being injured and hurting!! Go see Dr. Tom and Dr. Stephanie!

Over the last 2 years I have been working to get myself back in shape which included me doing yoga, Crossfit, and some personal training. The problem I was having during this time was that despite how much stretching and foam rolling I did, it was physically impossible for me to do certain yoga poses or lifts while weight training. I went to the team at DPT to see if they could help and they found that the reason I had trouble doing even basic squats was because my ankle mobility wasn't great. I also had issues with a weak hip and shoulder, I'm only 30 years old! I was extremely impressed with DPT's ability to figure out why I couldn't move the way I wanted, especially after seeing a number of people such as chiropractors and other PTs for the same problem. I am continuing to improve my mobility and strength and finally getting closer to the results I've been looking for the past 2 years! Thank you DPT for being such a great team to work with!

6/5. 10/5. I have one regret. I didn't go sooner. 13 years of back pain (i'm 29 by the way). Soft tissue related. Hips out of whack, back pain constantly, sleeping with a pillow between my knees every night. Just 1 week in with Dr. Tom, he's assigned a routine of low back, deep abdominal, and hip exercises to strength all those muscles, which have been ignored for 13 years, or really my whole life. I can't wait to see how the next 9 weeks develop. Thank you Dr. Tom, I feel hope for the first time in...well 13 years

I left my first session with Dr. Stephanie feeling confident that my problem of pain and limited movement could be resolved. In fact, I have gone through a series of treatments that have proved to benefit me physically so very much. Not only did Dr. Stephanie get me back into tennis, she helped me improve my game very significantly. I highly recommend DPT. While I want to experience no further injuries or pain, that may be an unrealistic hope. I suspect I will maintain a long term relationship with DPT for check ups and further assistance with strengthening and flexibility. I am so impressed with Dr. Stephanie’s kindness, knowledge, expertise, and efficiency in improving my physicality. Thank you DPT and Dr. Stephanie, in particular. Steven Hirdes, Ed.D.

Following knee surgery I was not able to straighten my leg. I was released from my doctors care after six 1/2 hour sessions with staff physical therapy since my insurance would not cover more sessions. I sought help from a personal trainer. Over the past 7 years I improved but continued having severe pain in several areas. Dr Tom provided me with hope that I can walk and exercise normally again. He quickly diagnosed my problem and established measurable goals. Dr Tom released major trigger points so that I could make progress with exercises to do on my own. Best of all he taught me techniques to reduce pain in my home between visits. I’ve never experienced such improvement within one hour.

I have been going to Dr. Tom Padilla for physical therapy for the past 6 months. With his knowledge and expertise I am able to continue with the physical activities that I enjoy doing. I was referred to the Doctors of Physical Therapy by my CrossFit coach. Knee pain was limiting me in my workouts. My daily activities were also restricted, I had difficulty getting in and out of a car. I’m a woman on the go and I didn’t like being slowed down. Dr. Tom was able to evaluate my knee, analyze my movements and teach me exercises to strengthen my weakness. I was able to practice the exercises at home and my knee pain has been reduced. The facilities are top notch, scheduling is easy. It’s not any easy fix, you have to do your part and work hard to get better, but with Dr. Tom’s patience, motivation and great sense of humor, I am back at CrossFit and living life.

I have been dealing with horrible pain in both of my knees for over a year . Of which during that time I found out I had torn meniscus in both knees. I couldn't walk very well, walk up and down stairs or get up and down on the floor. I work 8 to 9 hrs a day five days a week on my feet. Months ago I was recommended by my son whom is a chiropractor to have Dr. Padilla do some PT for me. I was hesitant for a while since I live 4hrs away. After several months went by and another recommendation from my son and another specialist I was seeing, I finally decided to try it. With the first visit I was hooked. Not only did I feel results on the first day, I also was thoroughly examined and given great information on how your body reacts and can be treated with physical therapy done right. As well as exercises to go home with, which is a huge plus for me.I have been seeing amazing results each time I go. I am half way through my PT sessions and I can walk without limping and even walk up and down stairs much better. I am able to do squats and get down on the floor a lot easier than before. In the past two months I have seen both Dr. Tom Padilla and Dr. Stephanie Mundt. Both are the most amazing and knowledgeable doctors ever. I have a goal and that is to be able to keep walking so I can keep up with my kids and grandkids. I still have a lot of life in me and I'm not ready to quit now.I highly recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy. They will help you get on the right track to getting your physical ability back.Thank you Dr. Stephanie and Dr. Padilla. Your both amazing.

I have been going to DPT for a couple months now. I am an avid runner with a history of 3 knee surgeries. I also run obstacle course races and tore my rotator cuff last year. I attended two workshops with Stephanie and loved her. She was very informative and helpful so I decided to see her in the clinic 1:1. Stephanie is able to evaluate injuries/concerns and then give specific exercise to aid in rehabilitation. I will say (depending on what your goal is) it does take some work at home, but Stephanie provides the proper education and tools to complete this. Since then, I have been able to run longer distances without pain, attend classes at orange theory and am working towards getting back to obstacle course racing. I feel they truly understand the demands that come with being a competitive athlete and are able to work towards activity specific goals. I cannot thank the team at DPT enough.

I was experiencing lower back pain that wouldn't go away and continually became worse. I've always been active and the pain began to limit my ability to work out. After several attempts at self diagnosis, nothing seemed to relieve the pain so I made an appt with DPT. During that first visit Dr. Tom was very thorough and walked me through exactly what was happening and explained the approach to correct the problem. I experienced some immediate relief after starting a series of exercises. Over the next several months, my body became stronger and I was able to get back to doing all of the things I had done previously. The entire team at DPT was extremely friendly and helpful. They were very responsive and answered all my questions. I feel fortunate that I found DPT and would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a great physical therapist.

I came to DPT because my body was all kinds of messed up from my first pregnancy, which was making my second very uncomfortable. Pelvis pain, back pain, etc. With my first visit at DPT I saw immediate results where I could get out of bed so much easier (which used to be a group activity with my husband). After having my daughter we had a few more sessions and I can happily say I'm back to my old self! No pain, better mobility, and with my functioning body I'm losing all my baby weight. Couldn't have done it without my crew at DPT.

I am extremely impressed with my experience at DPT. The staff is professional, efficient and welcoming. Dr. Stephanie was able to greatly reduce my shoulder pain in one visit and has continued to do so each time I have seen her. It’s wonderful to have pain free, full range of motion back. I had slowly been having to reduce my actives to accommodate the pain I was having, but now am able to everything I want and used to enjoy! I would recommend DPT to anyone needing physical therapy or who is just ready to live their lives without achesand pains!

I attended the Low Back Pain workshop by Drs Steph and Tom. It was the most informative information on low back pain I have ever been exposed to, and I had orthopedic courses in my training!! They gave information that transforms the way that I interact with back pain in office, getting people off of their medications and having them simply do some simple testing to find out what is actually the cause of the pain. I recommend that all practitioners who see people who have back pain attend this workshop. Their workshops are very informative and give you the ammo you need to be a solution to low back pain, not perpetuating the issue by trying to ineffectively treat the issue. Thank you Tom and Steph! You guys WOWED me!

I severely pinched a nerve, It was so bad it got to the point I was unable to properly flex/contract my Pec or Tricep. I have been a gym regular for years, and it has been a large part of my life. So being unable to really engage my right side was devastating. I went to a couple doctors in the hopes of getting this fixed, with no luck. Finally ended up at DPT and so happy I did. Not only were they able to diagnose the issue right away they also worked very closely with me and developed a plan to get me back to 100%. Didn't take long for me to be able to use those musicals again! Armed with the knowledge gained from my sessions I am regaining my strength. No words for how grateful I am!

I suffered a mtn biking accident resulting in near loss of function of my whole left arm and hand and significant pain. My neurologist told me it would take 18 months to see improvement, yet at 4 months since the accident, I am already 75% better with near full range of monitor of arm and significantly less pain. I am able to get back into the gym, do yoga with modifications and hike with my dogs. As a physician I have already referred several patients here and will continue to do so. Everyone who works here is kind and enthusiastic and knowledgeable about anatomy and how to get to the root of the problem. I will continue my therapy here and will be back for future issues.

I Recently had the opportunity to attend a back/ hip pain workshop that was hosted by the Doctors of Physical Therapy. I was amazed by their professionalism and knowledge of the body! The workshop was a great balance of learning what causes the back/hip pain and then practicing a few exercises to learn how different muscles operate during different movements/ activities. I have experienced lower back pain for years and have been thru many forms of treatment where I would experience brief moments of relief but the pain and symptoms would always come back. It was not until I attended this workshop that I discovered why these treatments never held. The DPT are not just looking at the acute pain in the back, because often that is only a symptom and the cause of pain may be caused by something else all together. The DPT takes an in depth approach where they want to get all muscles into alignment and then work on getting those muscles to operate as they are intended. At the Doctors of Physical therapy their passion for their work and how they put their patient's care first is extremely evident. I would highly recommend attending a workshop if you want to gain some insight on why other forms of treatment in the past haven’t worked for you and to know that there could be a solution out there that does not involve pills, injections or surgery! Thank you Again!!

I have been going to The Doctors of Physical Therapy for 3 months and can't say enough good things about the staff and service! I had been suffering from chronic low back pain and hip problems for years and had seen numerous physical therapists and was not getting any relief. My back would "go out" 3x per year and I would have shooting pain upon waking. After the 1st month on my plan from the Doctors of Physical Therapy my shooting pain went away and I am now able to exercise and do my daily activities without discomfort! I am SO happy I found them and am continuing to see them once a month ongoing to keep my body in top shape!

Dr. Tom has made a huge difference in my life, letting me be much more active! After hip replacement surgery, I wasn't quite back to the strength I had before even after pt with another therapist. Dr. Tom gave me a course of exercises that made me stronger. Then, right before a scheduled trip to Italy, my ankle began to bother me terribly. I was limping like crazy and worried I wouldn't be able to do everything I wanted on our trip. Dr. Tom got me right in, and worked with me to get back to where I needed to be enjoy my trip. I walked almost 60 miles on the trip. I could not have done it without him.If you have any issues that are slowing you down, check with Dr. Tom Padilla and the Doctors of Physical Therapy to see if they can help. You won't regret it!

Dr. Tom and Dr. Stephanie truly are the best. My husband and I had a trip planned to hike Machu Pichu and after struggling for years I finally found DPT. There was no handing me off to some assistant as I had experienced in the past. They worked with me one on one to get me to a place that I could regain my life back as it once was. After only a couple of months I was texting them from the summit of Machu Pichu. Not only do they care about my physical therapy but are interested in the whole person. We are lucky to have this group in our area and I would recommend them to my friends, family and anyone in need of help.

Excellent diagnostician(s) Noticed I was dragging left foot when I walked. PT exercises strengthening my right hip has solved the problem. Great communication with my primary care physician. Initial visit was done on recommendation of my personal trainer. Location is convenient as it is located in the fitness center where I work out. Good coordination with DPT and my personal trainer regarding follow up and exercises

I was in hip pain for three years; the throb, pinch, and tightness was all day and night. I stopped exercising as well as unable to sleep on that hip! Last month I was blessed with a referral to The Doctors of Physical Therapy. After only a few sessions (along with strength exercises at home)...I can’t believe that I’m pain free! I’m back to spinning, hiking and best of all, sleeping like a baby!I highly recommend DPT to lift your spirits again. The staff is knowledgeable, kind, and empathetic. They teach you how to live and stay pain free, for that I’m grateful!

The Doctors of Physical Therapy are amazing! I was having hip pain that kept me from progressing with my fitness goals. I chose DPT because I knew that they would treat the cause of my pain, not just the symptoms. With just 5 sessions of seeing the Doctor's of Physical Therapy, I not only had relief from some of my pain, but I now know why I was having so much pain, and they set me up with a treatment plan to get me back to running and squatting at the gym pain-free. The staff at DPT know their stuff and are able to communicate the details in a way that makes sense to someone with no medical knowledge - I would highly recommend them for any of your physical therapy needs!

I have had lower back and sciatica issues for the past 10 years. I’ve tried everything from traditional physical therapy and chiropractic to cortisone epidural injections. None of which lasted very long term and I always end up back in pain. Since being recommend to DPT and starting therapy, my back pain is almost gone. Before my first session I couldn’t even bend down and touch my toes, get dressed in the morning without pain, sneeze or cough without pain every time. By the end of the first session, I could bend over with minimal pain! From that moment, I knew I had finally found the solution to my pain and my quality of life was about to turn around. After 2 months, my pain is almost completely gone and now I have the resources (stretches/exercises) for those days I do have some pain. I can’t thank the doctors of physical therapy enough for giving me hope for a pain-less future!

I've been seeing Dr. Stephanie for a couple months now, and I can't say enough about her and my experience at this clinic! For the past year, I have been dealing with hip instability which has caused my hips to click every time I try to do a simple squat in the gym. After months of ignoring this problem and avoiding treatment, the clicking soon turned into major hip pain. I was referred by a friend to see Dr. Stephanie at The Doctors of PT, and she exceeded my expectations! From the moment I walked in the clinic, I was warmly greeted by Rhiannon (receptionist), and was in the doctor's office within minutes, which is hard to believe because in my past experience I would have to wait for 30 min to 1 hour before seeing any doctor. Dr. Stephanie took the time to assess what was going on with me in detail. With every assessment, she explained exactly what was causing my pain/clicking and how WE were going to fix it. At that moment and every appointment after, I have felt like she has been my teammate in getting back me back to my healthy/painless-self. Stephanie is kind, knowledgeable, and hungry to get patients back to their full capacity. I would HIGHLY recommend this clinic, the Doctors here are professional, committed, and take personal interest in each patient's progress. Thank you, The Doctors of Physical Therapy!

I have had various back and neck issues. Partly from a whiplash and scoliosis contributes to my back issues. I now have osteoporosis. As a result of this I had 3 compression fractures. After 3 months in a brace and using home PT care it was time for outpatient. I could barely drive and could not bend over or turn my body. I was lucky enough to find Doctors of Physical Therapy. I have never (I've had several) found anyone to have the knowledge to help me in the way they have. It has taken a year but they have me back dancing, able to walk distances, travel, bend over (yes that took awhile to do after back break) take care of myself and my house. I am stronger than ever. I am grateful that I could find them because I don't think I would be doing as well if I had not had this type of therapy.

I am a Competitive UltraRunner and former Mtn.Bike Racer. I have been competing heavily in Ultra Races since 2013 and have had extreme Hamstring and Gluteal pain and even tears. I have undergone PT Rehab specifically for these injuries by others yet I continue to have pain and problems. I have had most treatments, therapies, modalities and professionals work on my issues but NONE of them Really Helped Diagnose and Treat my issue like Tom Padilla, owner of Doctors of Physical Therapy. I have had 4 out of my 5 sessions with him and on session 4, IT clicked! His new assistant on staff helped video my gait and explain my dysfunction so I could visually see what I needed to change and why. With the corrective exercises prescribed by both Docs, I am running w/less pain and am astonished and shocked I just did the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim and my problem areas were not problems. Very impressed and will continue treatment.

Tom Padilla figured out what was wrong with my shoulder and neck area after one appointment. I lived with that pain for months and he diagnosed it accurately in minutes. He is freaky smart which makes him extremely effective at his work. He is also confident about how much time it takes to have his patients become pain-free, functioning again and then building strength and moving forward, respectively. He kept his word on all counts. I am very thankful for him.

Dr. Tom is not like any other physical therapist we have ever met or worked with. He is exceptional in all he does. My daughter suffered from pain EVERY day for 2 1/2 years from hamstring tendonitis that 6 other do tors could not figure out or resolve. After exhausting every other treatment method one can possibly think of, we were recommended to Dr. Tom. Well... within 20 min of her first visit, Dr. Tom figured out her issue and by the third visit, my daughter was virtually pain free. Dr. Tom individualizes every plan, every session and spends one on one with you. He is kind, understanding, and interested in figuring out what is going on! His assessment skills and observation is absolutely SPOT ON! He has changed my daughters life. I would suggest that you dont waste any more time or money if you are having issues and make an appointment. He is one of a kind, AMAZING.

Shoulder pain - SOLVED! Dr. Tom helped me restore my shoulder back to working order. He was able to identify what was causing my discomfort and taught me how to fix it. After a few short sessions with him, I am now pain-free.Dr. Tom is true professional. He is extremely knowledgeable, talented, and honest. I look forward to continuing to recommend him to all of my friends and family who have any needs that can be met with physical therapy!

Dr. Tom Padilla is beyond awesome! I woke up one morning with intense low back pain, which progressed to being barely able to walk or work - I hurt so bad I couldn’t focus. An MRI showed NOTHING. My naturopath highly recommended him - she knows other doctors that go to him and said he’s different from other PT offices. It’s not the typical 3x a week PT like most offices. She was right! He spent at least an hour with me on the 1st visit, evaluating what was going on. He tested and worked with me, sometimes revising his assessment, and gave me exercises to do at home. He really listens and knows what he’s doing!! He can magically point to (or work on) a spot and pinpoint where there are related issues or pain, often where I didn’t even know something was up! I started getting relief almost immediately. From there it’s been a visit every week or so, with longer gaps in between, adding new exercises as I progressed. At one point early on, I was hurting so bad I couldn’t walk (we think because of an exercise I wasn’t doing correctly), and he walked me through a stretch over the phone to give me some relief. Long story short, in 5 visits over only 7 weeks, I’m SO much better! I have very little pain, am MUCH more flexible, and can now go back to the gym (with a specific strength, core, & mobility routine from Dr. Tom) and start doing light yoga and hiking again!! I can’t recommend Dr. Tom highly enough! He’s worth every penny!

Dr. Tom is magician! I️ learned more about why body was hurting the way I️t was and how to prevent I️t in a cpl one hour sessions then I️ could have ever imagined in a life time! Dr Tom is extremely well educated, as I️t shows through your the entire session. He is extremely passionate at what he does and truly gives I️t his all in order to get you back to doing what you love in no time. He’s also a stand up guy and someone that I️ think everyone would love to call they’re friend. I️ would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Tom Padilla to any of my friends family, or anyone that is in need of the BEST Physical Therapist

There aren't words to describe how truly impressed I have been with the DPT and how thankful I am to have found them. The staff is incredibly professional, easy to reach, and responsive. Not to mention that the quality of care here is phenomenal. When I arrived, I hadn't been able to raise my arm over my head for nearly 7 months. I have all but the tiniest bit of my full range of motion back and am almost completely pain free. Saved me from getting surgery (the initial reccomendation I was given). Would be 10 stars if I could rate it that high.

After just a few months of working with them, my problem seemed pretty much resolved, and I am super excited to feel my body getting stronger and better instead of more dysfunctional all the time. Dr. Tom is so encouraging and knowledgeable in so many areas. Highly recommend!

Recently I hurt my shoulder doing parkour and was not sure what I injured. I was referred to Dr. Tom and so glad that I met him. At first he started doing some tests to pinpoint the actual pain/injury. I was not sure what he was doing but after a few motions he pulled out a digital skeleton and pointed out where I had injured my shoulder. Once he diagnosed the problem he set me up on a plan to improve my injury. It was personalized care with a plan that was meant for me and my needs. Thanks Dr. Tom for the excellent service!

If you want to get back you life and doing what you love, you need to go to DPT! They address your issues getting to the root cause not just the pain. They take to time to explain what they find and listen to you. Do yourself a favor and call these guys.

Best physical therapist around! They really know how to get the core of the problem rather than treating symptoms. I've had multiple whiplash injuries and 3 concussions that lead to recurring neck problems and headaches. Not one were they able to give me relief but the therapist gave me exercises and trigger points that I can use to keep the problem from coming back.

I had to see many physical therapists for my knees for many years and no one can be compared with Tom Padilla, he really knows what he's doing, he can explain to you what's going on with your recovery and what you need to work at to be better. I really miss him now that I'm recovering from my last surgery, but the good thing is that I still remember some tips that he gave me from the previous one. So if you need a really good therapists just go with Tom and you'll be in the best hands.

I am a previous patient of Brandon and have also had the pleasure of working along side of him as a physical therapy aide. When I tore my meniscus about a year ago, I got to work with Brandon and his doctoral student to rehab my knee back to health, as well as resolve some SI joint pain. Brandon was very knowledgeable about my injuries and was very thorough in explaining everything from the details of my injury to the rehabilitation plan and answered any questions that I had along the way. He also took into account my goal of getting back to a running program and would analyze my gait to ensure that I had proper mechanics that so that I wouldn't risk injury from my running form. Brandon is extremely caring and passionate about helping his patients get better. While working with him, his patients were always coming up to us and telling us how much they had enjoyed working with Brandon and how much he had been able to help them. I have been injury-free now for about a year, and was able to come back to all of my activities feeling stronger than before. I highly recommend Brandon for physical therapy and am excited to see the opportunity that him and his partners have brought into Scottsdale.

I have actually had the pleasure of working with Dr. Tom Padilla. What I can say is that I have worked with many physical therapists over the years as a PT aide and I have never met someone who delivered on so many levels when it comes to treatment. He evaluates you on your first visit to see what would be the most efficient treatment and is diligent about monitoring actual progress. He treats patients the way that he would want to be treated. He is patient and does a great job explaining things in a way you will understand. Lastly, he is personable and friendly! Trust me, he is worth a visit! His previous patients miss him here in California and wish him only the best of luck in Scottsdale!

This is a very nice office space. The Doctors are three highly trained professionals, they listen attentively to your concerns and create a recovery program specific to your challenges and ability. It was quick and easy to get an appointment.
