DPT’s Testimonials

Take A Few Moments To Hear What Our Clients Have To Say About DPT

Laura, Mid 20’s (knee/neck pain)

“I came in with knee pain and he [Dr. Tom] asked about my medical history, about any falls that I’ve had, he takes into consideration all of my life instead of just the injury I’m having right now. I love DPT because it has given me a new look on how resilient our bodies are. […] This experience has been far different. It’s been very functional, and it makes sense to me, and it’s helped me like nothing else has, so I wan’t to share that with other people.”

Katherine, Early 40’s (hip/low back pain)

“I’m now happy to say that I’m pain free. I have no more shooting pain. I can get up in the morning, and I’m not stiff and uncomfortable. And I can do all my activities and keep up with my kids which is important.”

Doug, Late 40’s (chronic back pain)

“The balance that this has created is phenomenal. The Change in sleeping behaviors. The release that when I am in pain I can do stuff. We’ve traveled through Switzerland, through Italy in may. And that was one of my goals, I wanted to be able to walk around Italy with my wife for her 50th birthday…”

Teri, Late 40’s (knee/low back pain)

“Living pain free really makes me feel like I’m not going to… like i have quality if life to live! Like I think I had reached a point in my life and thought, ‘Okay, maybe… maybe this is it. Maybe I just start aging now.’ And I feel really good, which I haven’t felt in a long time.”

“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 visits 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 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.”

– Kelly H. (pelvis/back pain)

“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!”

– Katherine H. (low back/hip pain)

“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!

– Joey B. (hip/knee pain)

Google Rating: 5-stars/58 reviews

My husband had debilitating knee pain that a surgeon said required a double knee replacement. Looking for an alternative since he's only 50, we found DPT online describing the exact pain and situation as his. After a consultation with Jessie and Justin, we were convinced they could help him and agreed to a customized wellness plan. In three sessions, my husband was able to straighten his knee, something his previous PT said would be impossible. Jessie has not only addressed his knee pain but also his hip mobility and suggested her unofficial opinion for the cause of his lumbar pain. After consulting with a spine Dr., Jessie was correct and he will be having surgery to relieve his 6 year back pain allowing him to finally stop taking morphine! I cannot commend Jessie and DPT enough for their skill, dedication, professionalism and caring. Lesa is a joy, the sweetest and most helpful individual you'll ever meet. Jessie is incredibly intelligent, skilled and dedicated to her practice; she doesn't do anything halfway and the results are so instantaneous that we still cannot believe the transformation in my husband's knees and pain. DPT has literally changed our lives for the better and we refer them to everyone we know, including my 91 year old grandmother who is also seeing Jessie rather than getting a knee replacement!

I first came to The Doctors of Physical Therapy in November of 2020 because I was having issues with my back and hips. The staff was very professional and extremely friendly. They started with an initial evaluation and told me the areas I would need to work on with exercise and therapy. Dr. Justin Becker has worked with me on strengthening my lower back and giving me more flexibility throughout my lower body. These exercises have helped me with my golf swing and I have been able to play pain-free. I would recommend their services if you are having similar type of pain in your lower back and hips.

I have been going to Dr. Tom and the DPT staff for a few years. I was suffering from lower back pain, tingling hands and legs, a burning sacrum, and had seen over 10 medical professionals who could not fix the issue. I am young and love to be active, so fixing the issue was a huge priority to me. Dr. Tom was the only person who could pinpoint the problem and work with me to overcome the chronic pain. My progress was not always linear, but I always felt confident in Dr. Tom and his team that I would get back to my active lifestyle at some point, no matter where I was at in my journey. I am now pain free, and could not have happier with the service I received from Dr. Tom and his team. It was a great investment and I would recommend DPT to anyone who is suffering with pain.

I started with The Doctors of Physical Therapy almost exactly a year ago and I can not say enough good things about my experience with them. I came in suffering from frozen shoulder. I had tried various other PT and medical injections to treat my shoulder for several months before with no prolonged progress. I realized that I needed something better. I love that I received one-on-one physical therapy the entire hour of my treatment. In the past I had been transitioned to working on my exercises on my own, and this was clearly not working for me. All of the staff at The Doctors of Physical Therapy are amazing and truly care about your progress and well being. The Doctors of Physical Therapy worked with my on my challenging schedule in order to get me the sessions I need within my availability. Prior to me starting with The Doctors of Physical Therapy I could barely lift my left arm to waist height due to frozen shoulder, I have now been able to resume all desired physical activity and am continuing to see progress. What I truly loved about the treatment I have been receiving at that the Physical Therapists is that they treat the whole body and listen to me and about everything going on as a result of the frozen shoulder as opposed to only focusing on that one symptom. I could not recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy more to anyone that needs physical therapy, especially to those that have not seen results from other physical therapy treatments.

I had been to The Doctors of Physical Therapy before to do a golf swing consult with Dr. Tom. Recently, I was experiencing pain in my shoulder which was limiting my golf swing. Dr. Tom and Dr. Justin performed a thorough evaluation and put together a treatment plan based on my goal - play golf without pain. The PT's did a great job giving me what I can handle initially then ramping up the treatment plan as my strength improved. I appreciate the flexibility and creativity of the PT's - they continued to give me exercises that built on what I accomplished and challenged me to get stronger. They listen and adjust the plan based on your feedback.From the moment you walk in the door and Lesa greats you, you always feel welcomed and comfortable and something more than just a patient. The facility is clean and well organized.I would highly recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy. My shoulder has never felt better. My strength and range of motion improved beyond a level I expected. And, most importantly, I can play golf without any discomfort!!Thanks Dr. Tom, Dr. Justin and Lesa!!!!

I started 4 months ago with DPT. I tore my Achilles last August. I went to the strip mall PT, which provided very little help. I was recommended by Bill Ross a professional trainer to DPT. What we discovered is that I had many underlying structural issues with the way I walk which contributed to my Achilles tear. DPT basically Dissected all the muscles that a human uses when walking not just the lower legs. Then through PT and home exercises Routines we “rebuilt” my muscle structure and I can do any exercise pain free. While this took 4 months the time and cost was well worth the investment. Thank you Dr. Justin.

One beautiful Sunday morning, while walking with my new pup “Monty”, we came across a family of quail crossing the sidewalk in front of us. That’s all it took! The next thing I knew Monty took off, and I landed face down on the sidewalk in front of me. When I gained my composure, I was able to locate Monty and ventured home. The next few days were unbearable. The pain in my right shoulder was off the charts, nights were the worst. I had a classic rotator cuff injury and after a few weeks in denial I was forced to schedule an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon. After requesting an MRI and a follow up consult my doctor recommended surgery to repair the tear. I was determined to avoid surgery. Terrified at going under the knife, I asked for my options. The next week I began seeing a physical therapist recommended by my surgeon, which I decided to pair with acupuncture to help repair nerve damage. After three months of physical therapy and acupuncture I was feeling better, but the shoulder wasn’t completely free of pain. My shoulder / arm flexibility were still limited. I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for until I found DPT while researching Physical Therapists specializing in shoulder injuries. Dr. Jessie’s personal testimonial was everything I was looking for. I found the specialization I was looking for. DPT is an office that takes a very individualized approach to physical therapy. Each therapy plan is specifically designed for the patient’s injuries, strengths, weaknesses and long-term goals. Dr. Jessie shared anatomical diagrams of my injury based on my MRI and we discussed an in-depth course of action. During each visit measurements were taken to document flexibility and injury improvement. She spent time extensively working my muscles at each visit. As I progressed, my pain decreased, and flexibility improved. My exercise regimen changed weekly to meet my recovery needs. The DPT office is exceptional. Patients are treated like family and the environment is easy and welcoming. They offer videos, tutorials and are free to answer questions any time. So, don’t wait any longer, with each day that passes you’re missing the opportunity to meet and work with a wonderful extremely professional and caring PT group.

I would like to offer my highest recommendation for The Doctors of Physical Therapy! They were recommended to me by a fitness trainer and life coach after I developed hamstring pain and knee pain in a recently replaced knee. My pain was causing me to miss out on many of the activities I enjoy, especially hiking in the AZ Desert and I was feeling old and beat up. I was a little skeptical when they explained this was coming from a chronic back situation, but I decided to follow their advice and do the work they laid out!Voila, about 2 months later I feel like a new woman. I'm back to most of my activities and have the utmost confidence that if I listen to my body and the Docs at DPT, they can keep me patched up and functioning well as I age . Surgery and pain meds are not in their vocabulary and I really appreciate that. I'm constantly amazed at their knowledge of the human body and positive reinforcing direction. I have the utmost respect for all the Docs at DPT and Lesa who makes it run seamlessly.Tara Leicht

This is the first time in my life I feel more equipped to help myself in the future. I came in with pain and dysfunction in my body and was given achievable exercises and a better understanding of my body and how to help it in the future. My pain is gone, the dysfunction is better, and I am excited to see them regarding a few areas of my body that I assumed pain/discomfort would just be my life. Dr. Jessie has been incredible from the beginning, but I've also gotten to work with each of the doctors and love how they all know my story and how to help. Above and beyond my physical experience, their service is INCREDIBLE. Lesa, the front office staff, is so wonderfully friendly that it feels like a family reunion when I enter the offices. I'll be sad when I've finished my treatments and don't see them regularly.

After years of bad stroke technique, I could barely lift my right shoulder to swim. Private coaching, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage helped -- especially the coaching -- but did not resolve the problem. A March 2020 right thumb surgery didn't help. I was ready to give up swimming. As I was leaving the pool one morning in June, I struck up a conversation with one of my pool mates who told me that she had been working with Dr. Jessie for a similar problem. I immediately scheduled a consult. After a thorough examination, Dr. Jessie told me essentially that my shoulder was the victim of issues with my abs/hips. We began work that day. I have had excellent physical therapy in the past, but the focus was always to try to resolve the immediate issue i.e. shoulder hurts, let's make it not hurt. DPT on the other hand, diagnoses the cause of the problem and digs in to help you correct it. I am now doing strength training with Dr. Jessie and am doing things I never would have imagined possible. (You want me to do what???) I feel strong and connected. I can dance without my right hip collapsing (an added bonus). My stroke gets better every day. DPT's entire staff, the doctors and Lesa, are upbeat and encouraging. The doctors' skills unsurpassed. I am grateful to have found them.

I initially went to DPT after not making progress with a hip issue at a physical therapy location recommended by my primary care physician. I had already scheduled a consultation with a hip surgeon for a hip replacement.My wife was going to DPT and suggested I try it before seeing the surgeon. At the time, I could not walk for more that a 1/4 mile before my hip and one knee began hurting.When I went to DPT, the cause of my hip pain was explained to me and I was given exercises to do to help alleviate the pain. The exercises worked quickly, and with each subsequent visit the exercise routine was adjusted to help me improve.When the hip issue was under control, we started working on other joint issues, and I have continued to improve. I can now walk 3 1/2 miles with no problems and I am building up to go further.So, the moral of the story is don't be too anxious to get a surgical consultation because it's very likely that all you need is some good PT.

I have had lower back pain for several years and wanted to get back to spinning classes and out of pain. I had been to several practitioners including another physical therapy practice, chiropractor, and orthopedic doctor with some success but the pain would always come back. My Naturopathic Doctor recommended that I visit the Doctors of Physical Therapy as they have a much more individualized focus than other physical therapy practices. I've worked with two doctors there and am thoroughly impressed with their depth of practical knowledge. They are willing to communicate with other providers to determine what is helping vs. not. The exercises prescribed for between physical therapy sessions are always easily done. I am now back to spinning and much more exercise!

I was referred to DPT by my mother who's pain vanished after working with DPT! After working with Dr. Jessie I too am pain free! Dr. Jessie has helped my body work correctly after years of bad habits. Dr. Jessie is extremely knowledgeable and found the source of my mystery hip pain when no one else could. I am very thankful I found DPT!

I am very pleased with the level of service that I received at DPT! Dr Jesse is so knowledgeable on the muscles of the body, she was able to create the correct exercise pattern to restore the movement in my shoulder. In a matter of a few short months, I have about 90% of movement back in my shoulder, I will be at 100% soon, with the guidance of Dr. Jesse and the team at DPT. I would recommend Dr Jesse and the team at DPT for any issue you have with movement!

A couple of years ago, at age 58, an undiagnosed childhood injury suddenly showed up as unbearably painful, debilitating sciatica… all day, every day. Steroid shots and chiropractic proved useless, and L4-L5 spine fusion surgery was imminent. My scheduled surgery was six months away, which meant six more months of disabling pain, or so I thought. I heard about Dr Tom’s great success with situations like mine and became his patient. He taught me how to do specialized exercises at home, significantly reducing my pain during those long months. After surgery, what came as a complete surprise (to both my Neurosurgeon and me), was my swift recovery. I returned to my normal golf, biking, running routine in just three short months with my surgeon’s blessing. No restrictions and no pain whatsoever! All that targeted pre-surgery PT left my body perfectly primed for a successful surgery and miraculous recovery. Whether surgery is in your future or not, it’s worth investigating Dr Tom’s “pre-hab” methods. They work bigtime!

Started working with DPT due to lower back pain where I could barely bend over to pick something up without extreme pain (with 5 kids, this was a big problem!). I worked remotely with Jessie, and was so very pleasantly surprised with how well things went via Zoom. Over the course of 10 hour-long sessions, there was 1 or 2 short instances where it would have been better to be there in person. Jessie also had lots of different exercises to try in case I didn’t have the exact equipment she had in the gym. I had tried physical therapy with other practices, and was told I had tight hamstrings. After years of stretching my hamstrings, I still had back pain. Jessie quickly identified several muscle groups to strengthen, recommended stretches, and taught me mobility exercises that have helped tremendously. I bend over without pain now! I would definitely recommend DPT - the staff is very responsive and kind, the doctors are extremely knowledgeable and great at explaining things, and most importantly, they get you the results you need.

Wonderful staff and SO much expertise. I worked with Dr. Tom and his ability to analyze movement patterns and isolate potential causes is extraordinary. Targeted prescribed therapy, both in the office and on my own, coupled with regular assessments really showed me the progress being made. I am coming from a weightlifting and general fitness background and pain that I had for years was diagnosed and treated with significant and measurable improvement. My goals were followed and I was a true partner in my own care, which is always important. Walking in, no matter your mood Lesa is definitely one of the friendliest people you could ever meet and she is such a pleasure to talk with. You will definitely be in great hands with these folks and can trust them to work with you to solve your problems and crush those goals! Highly recommended!

I can’t say enough amazing things about the staff at the Doctors ofPhysical Therapy. I have a struggled with ongoing lower pain for years due to my past with being a ballet dancer, and more recently having 2 children which made my pain worsen. Dr. Jessie is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. She takes her time with me every single visit and truly cares about my progress. She has helped me TREMENDOUSLY and my pain is going down less and less with each session. I am beyond grateful to have found this incredible team! I highly recommend this place! They truly care here which is so hard to find.

My friend referred me to DPT because I was complaining about shoulder and back pains. Though my lower back pain was chronic, the shoulder pains were relatively new and were limiting my ability to work out, swim and sleep.I had hesitated to visit them because I have experienced disappointment with some practitioners after their initial consultation. That is not the case with Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie. Their knowledge and 'bedside manners' are an awesome combination of clarity of purpose and ease in practice.Within 6 appointments my shoulder pain disappeared, but had migrated to another area. As these new symptoms appeared Dr. Jessie pivoted and addressed them but never lost focus on whole body movement. I even joke with her that they must be practicing some sort of magic because implementing the exercises mysteriously made pains disappear.Of course, their work isn't a mystery if you do the work, but joking and feeling at ease is an apt description of the environment they created. And the captain of this ease is Lesa. Yes, she is organized and always in front of billing and insurance issues before they ever become anything, but she greets everyone as family. I just love going to my appointments. Don't ever go changing, it's awesome just the way it is. Lol!

This is by FAR the best place to go if you are searching for experts in physical therapy! For anyone who had bad experiences in the past it will NOT happen here! Your fears will disappear with your first appointment! Dr. Jessie is amazing and has helped me so much with lower back and sciatica pain. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring and she is with you the entire session, from checking the areas of concern to ensuring you are doing the exercises correctly which is so important. Everyone at DPT including Dr. Tom and Lesa are so genuinely friendly and welcoming and I highly recommend!

I have been very impressed with Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie and their unique approach to physical therapy. I was referred to them by my chiropractor after I had been seeing another physical therapist for months. I came in for neck issues, but they evaluated my entire body to see what might be causing or contributing to this problem. This was very different from my previous experience with physical therapy, where they were only allowed to consider the part of the body that I was referred for. We were able to identify several issues throughout my body and have been working on each of these during my time here. I also appreciate their willingness to problem solve and try different approaches to get to the root of my neck issues. I am still a work in progress, but I am confident that we will continue to improve the way that my body functions and my quality of life. I am so thankful that I found their practice and would highly recommend it to anyone who might be hesitant to try physical therapy.

I was lucky to find DPT after many years of trying to manage hip pain that kept me from many activities. I had tried many doctors and other therapists but they only offered temporary solutions to keep me active. No one was able to diagnose and solve the real problem. A friend recommended DPT after listening to my frustrations. Dr. Tom was able to determine what was causing my pain and most importantly, what I needed to do strengthen my muscles so that I could be pain free. he recommended exercises and stretches based on my progress after every appointment. We have been working together for several months (first in person and then over Zoom since I'm out of town for the summer) to increase my strength and flexibility. I have noticed dramatic changes in the way I move. I'm able to do things now that I haven't been able to do for years. DPT is not like any other physical therapy practice. Each patient has the compete attention of the doctor for a full hour at every appointment. The doctors pay close attention to where I am and change the program to address my needs continuously so that I continue to make progress. I'm really pleased with the results we have gotten so far and look forward to continuing our work together. DPT has changed my life. I highly recommend letting them help you as well.

For nearly a decade I dealt with back pain that would sometimes put me in the ER and other times ruin my day for weeks on end. I saw several doctors over the years with no real success. My bosses, avid fans of Dr. Tom, recommended him and it was a game changer. Not only did he and his team identify what was causing the pain, they actually gave me useful skills, exercises and support to manage the issues on my own. I have not had back pain since!Even after I was better and started trying new things, Dr. Tom was there to offer help - whether that meant discouraging bouldering on a sprained ankle or fixing my hip alignment for warrior 3.

The Doctors at The Doctors of Physical Therapy are absolutely amazing. I am not one to have pain normally but I woke up one morning and could hardly stand up. I was in so much pain. No idea what happened. I called The Doctors of Physical Therapy to see when they could see me. They got me in quickly and made it so that I could stand straight up without pain just a little tightness. They sent me home with exercises I could do to help it get better and better. I went back several times after that to make sure I was making progress and we worked on other little things I didn't know they could help with. Like the vertigo I had every time I laid down. I was so very happy with my results with them. I tell everyone they should go see them. They are the best. I have not had back pain like that again and if I feel it getting tight, I just do some of those exercises again and the tightness goes away. Love the entire staff at The Doctors of Physical Therapy.

I can't tell you how glad I am that I started working with Doctors Tom and Jessie at DPT. I actually live in Boston, and have only had a few sessions with them in person (when I was visiting my mom in Scottsdale). I was honestly skeptical about trying virtual PT but have been so pleased with my sessions and progress.I have been in and out of PT for the past 10+ years, and have been stuck in a pattern of two steps forward then one (or three) steps backwards and have been frustrated that I was never able to make real forward progress. I met with Tom and Jessie in March at my mom's suggestion, who has been a patient of theirs for a while and I have never worked with a team who has taken such a holistic view of my body and its issues. They took an incredibly comprehensive approach to evaluating my body and explained what was happening very clearly. After 2 sessions I went back to Boston and have been meeting with Jessie virtually since then. I continue to be so impressed with her ability to assess my progress and evaluate my body's alignment, strength and mobility virtually. She develops very thoughtful programs for me that work with my schedule, and I feel like I'm steadily making progress. When I started seeing them I had bad back pain and fairly constant knee pain. Since then, my back pain has almost gone away and my knee pain has decreased dramatically. I also hurt my shoulder a few months ago and Jessie responded immediately, was able to diagnose me over Zoom, developed an effective program and monitored my progress well. I wish they were in Boston but I would work with them virtually over anyone else locally any day!

I feel so thankful to have been recommended to DPT by a friend few months ago! Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie have helped me so much! I have had trouble with my lower back for years, since college and now I'm in my 40s. I would have spells off and on over the years where my back would go out and I would be down for a week or two. I have always been active, and I enjoy exercising and playing sports especially with my family, so it was a continual frustration to be out of commission during those times. Not only that, but regular household tasks like mopping, vacuuming, putting sheets on the bed, etc., became things that would randomly set off my back and put me in bed for several days. Chiropractic would help temporarily but it never seemed to last. The last few years the spells came more frequently and lasted longer, until this past March when my back went out and I was down for 2 months, spending much of the time in bed. After trying massage, chiropractic treatments, X-rays that showed nothing specific, I was ready to get an MRI and see a surgeon. That's when my path crossed DPT's. I was skeptical of physical therapy because of what I'd heard from others' experiences, but I was ready to try anything. From my first visit to DPT, I felt hopeful for the first time in years that I could be active again and get over my chronic back trouble. They found that one of my hips was rotated out of position and probably had been for long enough that certain muscles in my back had stopped working completely and others were working incorrectly to compensate. I was assured I didn't need an MRI or surgery, but simply correction of that misalignment, re-teaching the muscles how to work and work correctly, and then strengthening them. It sounded so simple and made so much sense, and what a relief to learn that I didn't have a lifelong condition that I just had to live with or attempt to fix with surgery, as I had been told before! I have been so impressed by the one-on-one sessions with the doctors at DPT...no handing off of the patient to interns, aids or assistants...you're with the doctor the whole time! The staff is so friendly and caring, and have been wonderful, patient listeners to all my concerns and questions. After less than 3 months, I'm amazed at how much stronger I feel, and at how much I'm able to do now without pain. I'm so happy to be able to get back to exercising and playing basketball with my boys, without having to worry about being down for several days from over-doing it. It has been wonderful to learn that my back issues were not just something I had to live with as a result of getting older! I want to shout it from the rooftops that if you have back trouble, you don't just have to live with it, and don't assume you need surgery...you just need DPT!! 🙂

I’m an avid gym goer and crossfitter who had hurt one of my shoulders. It was a nagging injury but I was stubborn and wanted to “work through it”. DPT was recommended to me by a friend and she had given it a glowing recommendation. I will say I was a bit skeptical with the level of praise, but I was proven wrong very quickly: DPT is amazing. From the very first email, DPT (via Leesa) was professional and asked several questions to understand my background as well as the injury itself. My first appointment there was much the same: DPT showed a genuine care for me as a patient, asked several questions, and really wanted to understand the injury. It was definitely a 5-star experience. After my first session with Dr. Steph, I had zero hesitation about signing up for a bit more comprehensive therapy that would integrate my overall physical goals with my treatment plan. They didn’t just want me to get to “good enough” but wanted me to exceed where I had been before with my shoulder. Having been to PT before, I believe DPT’s desire to get me truly better than I was when I walked in the door set them apart. The doctors (Dr. Steph, Dr. Tom, and Dr. Jesse) at DPT created a progressive improvement plan to get me to where I wanted to be and I’m happy to say it worked! The staff there is not just giving you things to do to get better but they are by your side as you do it.I would highly recommend DPT to someone. If they were hesitant because they hadn’t heard about them, I would relay my initial skepticism and the final result of me returning to the gym at 110% of where I was prior to going in!

When I lost my ability to stand and walk due to severe sciatic pain, I tried everything to fix my leg: back surgery, physical therapy, pain management, spinal injections, spinal eletrostimulation, acupuncture, massage, dietary analysis…. Nothing helped at all. Then I found Dr Padilla, and he gave me back my life! When you go through this, you learn how many things you can no longer do if you can’t stand or walk. Now I’m back to walking 3-4 miles a day; I can lift and hold my grandbabies; I can go to parties without having to sit in a corner; I can go shopping again.What was different about Dr Padilla’s approach is that he carefully analyzed the root cause of my problem. All the other doctors I had seen were focused on alleviating the symptoms. Once Dr Padilla identified problem areas, he worked with me to test his hypotheses and then to fix the specific problems he identified through a combination of physical therapy and referrals to some very unique specialists, including one who could repair muscle tears without surgery and even one who could help me cope with the mental and emotional challenges that I am convinced contributed to the problem.I can’t speak highly enough of Dr Padilla and his practice. They are professional, caring, supportive in every way. I only wish I had seen him before all my other attempts. His method is virtually risk free, and I could have avoided a lot of doctor appointments and needless and expensive treatments, not to mention losing a couple of years to my other attempts.

My experience with Dr. Tom and The Doctors of Physical Therapy was exceptional.  Dr. Tom was recommended to me by my fitness trainer.   I saw Dr. Tom for lower back pain.  This was not my first experience with physical therapy treatment for back pain but I believe it was my best experience.  Dr. Tom quickly accessed my back issues and gave me a set of daily exercises and stretches.   After six weeks with regular office appointments,  I now can move more freely without pain.I would highly recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy.

The Doctors of Physical Therapy are amazing! All of the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.I’ve been working with Dr. Tom to resolve some knee pain issues and I’ve been so impressed that not only has my knee pain gone away, it’s improved quality of life in other ways!DPT isn’t like other physical therapists I have been to - they use functional, practical methods to find a solution to the problem. So worth it to give them a shot!!

The Doctors of Physical Therapy is an excellent organization comprised of passionate professionals! I have been in and out of several other physical therapy practices where I was given the same diagnosis over and over and still failed to see improvement. I was in a constant state of discomfort and pain and was unable to participate in the activities that I loved to do. Overall my quality of living was sub par. When I was introduced to the Doctors of Physical Therapy, they almost instantly identified the source of my discomfort and constructed a treatment plan that was so incredibly specific to my needs, results were almost immediate. I have been able to freely live my life and participate in the physical activities I so choose. Such as; weight lifting, rock climbing, hiking, and every day activities at home and at work. I recommend them to anybody who is stuck where I was, or feels anyway limited. They will help you get your life back!

My boss set up my first appt with DPT and upon completing the consultation Dr Jessie had given me an exercise to relieve my lower back pressure. Before starting therapy I had a hard time walking the grochery store, now I can walk 30 minutes outside without pain. Very grateful to have come across Dr Jessie.

Dr. Tom is simply the best. As a long time runner I realized I had hurt myself, but no idea how. Dr. Tom was able to quickly diagnose my problem, and developed a plan to get me back to where I was. Within a few months I was running half marathons again!

I am writing on behalf of my experience with DPT. When I first went there I was limping and barely able to walk without pain due to a labral tear in my hip and lots of hip pain.Upon entering DPT I was greeted by Lesa, the receptionist. She is fantastic and such a warm person. Then I met with Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie. They are wonderful. They made me feel like I was an integral part of the team there.I was referred to DPT by a friend. It's the best thing that happened for me and my hip. Dr. Jessie has helped me immensely with my hip. I no longer am limping and I walk without pain. I would recommend DPT and all their staff to everybody because of their professionalism, great attitude, and such pleasant people to be associated with.After every session I attend at DPT I am able to walk without a limp and am pain free.

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.

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.

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!

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.

DPT’s Testimonials

Take A Few Moments To Hear What Our Clients Have To Say About DPT

Laura, Mid 20’s
(knee/neck pain)

“I came in with knee pain and he [Dr. Tom] asked about my medical history, about any falls that I’ve had, he takes into consideration all of my life instead of just the injury I’m having right now. I love DPT because it has given me a new look on how resilient our bodies are. […] This experience has been far different. It’s been very functional, and it makes sense to me, and it’s helped me like nothing else has, so I wan’t to share that with other people.”

Doug, Late 40’s
(chronic back pain)

“The balance that this has created is phenomenal. The Change in sleeping behaviors. The release that when I am in pain I can do stuff. We’ve traveled through Switzerland, through Italy in may. And that was one of my goals, I wanted to be able to walk around Italy with my wife for her 50th birthday…”

Teri, Late 40’s
(knee/low back pain)

“Living pain free really makes me feel like I’m not going to… like i have quality if life to live! Like I think I had reached a point in my life and thought, ‘Okay, maybe… maybe this is it. Maybe I just start aging now.’ And I feel really good, which I haven’t felt in a long time.”

(pelvis/back pain)

“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 visits 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 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.”

Katherine H.
(low back/hip pain)

“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!”

My husband had debilitating knee pain that a surgeon said required a double knee replacement. Looking for an alternative since he's only 50, we found DPT online describing the exact pain and situation as his. After a consultation with Jessie and Justin, we were convinced they could help him and agreed to a customized wellness plan. In three sessions, my husband was able to straighten his knee, something his previous PT said would be impossible. Jessie has not only addressed his knee pain but also his hip mobility and suggested her unofficial opinion for the cause of his lumbar pain. After consulting with a spine Dr., Jessie was correct and he will be having surgery to relieve his 6 year back pain allowing him to finally stop taking morphine! I cannot commend Jessie and DPT enough for their skill, dedication, professionalism and caring. Lesa is a joy, the sweetest and most helpful individual you'll ever meet. Jessie is incredibly intelligent, skilled and dedicated to her practice; she doesn't do anything halfway and the results are so instantaneous that we still cannot believe the transformation in my husband's knees and pain. DPT has literally changed our lives for the better and we refer them to everyone we know, including my 91 year old grandmother who is also seeing Jessie rather than getting a knee replacement!

I first came to The Doctors of Physical Therapy in November of 2020 because I was having issues with my back and hips. The staff was very professional and extremely friendly. They started with an initial evaluation and told me the areas I would need to work on with exercise and therapy. Dr. Justin Becker has worked with me on strengthening my lower back and giving me more flexibility throughout my lower body. These exercises have helped me with my golf swing and I have been able to play pain-free. I would recommend their services if you are having similar type of pain in your lower back and hips.

I have been going to Dr. Tom and the DPT staff for a few years. I was suffering from lower back pain, tingling hands and legs, a burning sacrum, and had seen over 10 medical professionals who could not fix the issue. I am young and love to be active, so fixing the issue was a huge priority to me. Dr. Tom was the only person who could pinpoint the problem and work with me to overcome the chronic pain. My progress was not always linear, but I always felt confident in Dr. Tom and his team that I would get back to my active lifestyle at some point, no matter where I was at in my journey. I am now pain free, and could not have happier with the service I received from Dr. Tom and his team. It was a great investment and I would recommend DPT to anyone who is suffering with pain.

I started with The Doctors of Physical Therapy almost exactly a year ago and I can not say enough good things about my experience with them. I came in suffering from frozen shoulder. I had tried various other PT and medical injections to treat my shoulder for several months before with no prolonged progress. I realized that I needed something better. I love that I received one-on-one physical therapy the entire hour of my treatment. In the past I had been transitioned to working on my exercises on my own, and this was clearly not working for me. All of the staff at The Doctors of Physical Therapy are amazing and truly care about your progress and well being. The Doctors of Physical Therapy worked with my on my challenging schedule in order to get me the sessions I need within my availability. Prior to me starting with The Doctors of Physical Therapy I could barely lift my left arm to waist height due to frozen shoulder, I have now been able to resume all desired physical activity and am continuing to see progress. What I truly loved about the treatment I have been receiving at that the Physical Therapists is that they treat the whole body and listen to me and about everything going on as a result of the frozen shoulder as opposed to only focusing on that one symptom. I could not recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy more to anyone that needs physical therapy, especially to those that have not seen results from other physical therapy treatments.

I had been to The Doctors of Physical Therapy before to do a golf swing consult with Dr. Tom. Recently, I was experiencing pain in my shoulder which was limiting my golf swing. Dr. Tom and Dr. Justin performed a thorough evaluation and put together a treatment plan based on my goal - play golf without pain. The PT's did a great job giving me what I can handle initially then ramping up the treatment plan as my strength improved. I appreciate the flexibility and creativity of the PT's - they continued to give me exercises that built on what I accomplished and challenged me to get stronger. They listen and adjust the plan based on your feedback.From the moment you walk in the door and Lesa greats you, you always feel welcomed and comfortable and something more than just a patient. The facility is clean and well organized.I would highly recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy. My shoulder has never felt better. My strength and range of motion improved beyond a level I expected. And, most importantly, I can play golf without any discomfort!!Thanks Dr. Tom, Dr. Justin and Lesa!!!!

I started 4 months ago with DPT. I tore my Achilles last August. I went to the strip mall PT, which provided very little help. I was recommended by Bill Ross a professional trainer to DPT. What we discovered is that I had many underlying structural issues with the way I walk which contributed to my Achilles tear. DPT basically Dissected all the muscles that a human uses when walking not just the lower legs. Then through PT and home exercises Routines we “rebuilt” my muscle structure and I can do any exercise pain free. While this took 4 months the time and cost was well worth the investment. Thank you Dr. Justin.

One beautiful Sunday morning, while walking with my new pup “Monty”, we came across a family of quail crossing the sidewalk in front of us. That’s all it took! The next thing I knew Monty took off, and I landed face down on the sidewalk in front of me. When I gained my composure, I was able to locate Monty and ventured home. The next few days were unbearable. The pain in my right shoulder was off the charts, nights were the worst. I had a classic rotator cuff injury and after a few weeks in denial I was forced to schedule an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon. After requesting an MRI and a follow up consult my doctor recommended surgery to repair the tear. I was determined to avoid surgery. Terrified at going under the knife, I asked for my options. The next week I began seeing a physical therapist recommended by my surgeon, which I decided to pair with acupuncture to help repair nerve damage. After three months of physical therapy and acupuncture I was feeling better, but the shoulder wasn’t completely free of pain. My shoulder / arm flexibility were still limited. I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for until I found DPT while researching Physical Therapists specializing in shoulder injuries. Dr. Jessie’s personal testimonial was everything I was looking for. I found the specialization I was looking for. DPT is an office that takes a very individualized approach to physical therapy. Each therapy plan is specifically designed for the patient’s injuries, strengths, weaknesses and long-term goals. Dr. Jessie shared anatomical diagrams of my injury based on my MRI and we discussed an in-depth course of action. During each visit measurements were taken to document flexibility and injury improvement. She spent time extensively working my muscles at each visit. As I progressed, my pain decreased, and flexibility improved. My exercise regimen changed weekly to meet my recovery needs. The DPT office is exceptional. Patients are treated like family and the environment is easy and welcoming. They offer videos, tutorials and are free to answer questions any time. So, don’t wait any longer, with each day that passes you’re missing the opportunity to meet and work with a wonderful extremely professional and caring PT group.

I would like to offer my highest recommendation for The Doctors of Physical Therapy! They were recommended to me by a fitness trainer and life coach after I developed hamstring pain and knee pain in a recently replaced knee. My pain was causing me to miss out on many of the activities I enjoy, especially hiking in the AZ Desert and I was feeling old and beat up. I was a little skeptical when they explained this was coming from a chronic back situation, but I decided to follow their advice and do the work they laid out!Voila, about 2 months later I feel like a new woman. I'm back to most of my activities and have the utmost confidence that if I listen to my body and the Docs at DPT, they can keep me patched up and functioning well as I age . Surgery and pain meds are not in their vocabulary and I really appreciate that. I'm constantly amazed at their knowledge of the human body and positive reinforcing direction. I have the utmost respect for all the Docs at DPT and Lesa who makes it run seamlessly.Tara Leicht

This is the first time in my life I feel more equipped to help myself in the future. I came in with pain and dysfunction in my body and was given achievable exercises and a better understanding of my body and how to help it in the future. My pain is gone, the dysfunction is better, and I am excited to see them regarding a few areas of my body that I assumed pain/discomfort would just be my life. Dr. Jessie has been incredible from the beginning, but I've also gotten to work with each of the doctors and love how they all know my story and how to help. Above and beyond my physical experience, their service is INCREDIBLE. Lesa, the front office staff, is so wonderfully friendly that it feels like a family reunion when I enter the offices. I'll be sad when I've finished my treatments and don't see them regularly.

After years of bad stroke technique, I could barely lift my right shoulder to swim. Private coaching, physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage helped -- especially the coaching -- but did not resolve the problem. A March 2020 right thumb surgery didn't help. I was ready to give up swimming. As I was leaving the pool one morning in June, I struck up a conversation with one of my pool mates who told me that she had been working with Dr. Jessie for a similar problem. I immediately scheduled a consult. After a thorough examination, Dr. Jessie told me essentially that my shoulder was the victim of issues with my abs/hips. We began work that day. I have had excellent physical therapy in the past, but the focus was always to try to resolve the immediate issue i.e. shoulder hurts, let's make it not hurt. DPT on the other hand, diagnoses the cause of the problem and digs in to help you correct it. I am now doing strength training with Dr. Jessie and am doing things I never would have imagined possible. (You want me to do what???) I feel strong and connected. I can dance without my right hip collapsing (an added bonus). My stroke gets better every day. DPT's entire staff, the doctors and Lesa, are upbeat and encouraging. The doctors' skills unsurpassed. I am grateful to have found them.

I initially went to DPT after not making progress with a hip issue at a physical therapy location recommended by my primary care physician. I had already scheduled a consultation with a hip surgeon for a hip replacement.My wife was going to DPT and suggested I try it before seeing the surgeon. At the time, I could not walk for more that a 1/4 mile before my hip and one knee began hurting.When I went to DPT, the cause of my hip pain was explained to me and I was given exercises to do to help alleviate the pain. The exercises worked quickly, and with each subsequent visit the exercise routine was adjusted to help me improve.When the hip issue was under control, we started working on other joint issues, and I have continued to improve. I can now walk 3 1/2 miles with no problems and I am building up to go further.So, the moral of the story is don't be too anxious to get a surgical consultation because it's very likely that all you need is some good PT.

I have had lower back pain for several years and wanted to get back to spinning classes and out of pain. I had been to several practitioners including another physical therapy practice, chiropractor, and orthopedic doctor with some success but the pain would always come back. My Naturopathic Doctor recommended that I visit the Doctors of Physical Therapy as they have a much more individualized focus than other physical therapy practices. I've worked with two doctors there and am thoroughly impressed with their depth of practical knowledge. They are willing to communicate with other providers to determine what is helping vs. not. The exercises prescribed for between physical therapy sessions are always easily done. I am now back to spinning and much more exercise!

I am very pleased with the level of service that I received at DPT! Dr Jesse is so knowledgeable on the muscles of the body, she was able to create the correct exercise pattern to restore the movement in my shoulder. In a matter of a few short months, I have about 90% of movement back in my shoulder, I will be at 100% soon, with the guidance of Dr. Jesse and the team at DPT. I would recommend Dr Jesse and the team at DPT for any issue you have with movement!

A couple of years ago, at age 58, an undiagnosed childhood injury suddenly showed up as unbearably painful, debilitating sciatica… all day, every day. Steroid shots and chiropractic proved useless, and L4-L5 spine fusion surgery was imminent. My scheduled surgery was six months away, which meant six more months of disabling pain, or so I thought. I heard about Dr Tom’s great success with situations like mine and became his patient. He taught me how to do specialized exercises at home, significantly reducing my pain during those long months. After surgery, what came as a complete surprise (to both my Neurosurgeon and me), was my swift recovery. I returned to my normal golf, biking, running routine in just three short months with my surgeon’s blessing. No restrictions and no pain whatsoever! All that targeted pre-surgery PT left my body perfectly primed for a successful surgery and miraculous recovery. Whether surgery is in your future or not, it’s worth investigating Dr Tom’s “pre-hab” methods. They work bigtime!

Started working with DPT due to lower back pain where I could barely bend over to pick something up without extreme pain (with 5 kids, this was a big problem!). I worked remotely with Jessie, and was so very pleasantly surprised with how well things went via Zoom. Over the course of 10 hour-long sessions, there was 1 or 2 short instances where it would have been better to be there in person. Jessie also had lots of different exercises to try in case I didn’t have the exact equipment she had in the gym. I had tried physical therapy with other practices, and was told I had tight hamstrings. After years of stretching my hamstrings, I still had back pain. Jessie quickly identified several muscle groups to strengthen, recommended stretches, and taught me mobility exercises that have helped tremendously. I bend over without pain now! I would definitely recommend DPT - the staff is very responsive and kind, the doctors are extremely knowledgeable and great at explaining things, and most importantly, they get you the results you need.

Wonderful staff and SO much expertise. I worked with Dr. Tom and his ability to analyze movement patterns and isolate potential causes is extraordinary. Targeted prescribed therapy, both in the office and on my own, coupled with regular assessments really showed me the progress being made. I am coming from a weightlifting and general fitness background and pain that I had for years was diagnosed and treated with significant and measurable improvement. My goals were followed and I was a true partner in my own care, which is always important. Walking in, no matter your mood Lesa is definitely one of the friendliest people you could ever meet and she is such a pleasure to talk with. You will definitely be in great hands with these folks and can trust them to work with you to solve your problems and crush those goals! Highly recommended!

I can’t say enough amazing things about the staff at the Doctors ofPhysical Therapy. I have a struggled with ongoing lower pain for years due to my past with being a ballet dancer, and more recently having 2 children which made my pain worsen. Dr. Jessie is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. She takes her time with me every single visit and truly cares about my progress. She has helped me TREMENDOUSLY and my pain is going down less and less with each session. I am beyond grateful to have found this incredible team! I highly recommend this place! They truly care here which is so hard to find.

My friend referred me to DPT because I was complaining about shoulder and back pains. Though my lower back pain was chronic, the shoulder pains were relatively new and were limiting my ability to work out, swim and sleep.I had hesitated to visit them because I have experienced disappointment with some practitioners after their initial consultation. That is not the case with Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie. Their knowledge and 'bedside manners' are an awesome combination of clarity of purpose and ease in practice.Within 6 appointments my shoulder pain disappeared, but had migrated to another area. As these new symptoms appeared Dr. Jessie pivoted and addressed them but never lost focus on whole body movement. I even joke with her that they must be practicing some sort of magic because implementing the exercises mysteriously made pains disappear.Of course, their work isn't a mystery if you do the work, but joking and feeling at ease is an apt description of the environment they created. And the captain of this ease is Lesa. Yes, she is organized and always in front of billing and insurance issues before they ever become anything, but she greets everyone as family. I just love going to my appointments. Don't ever go changing, it's awesome just the way it is. Lol!

This is by FAR the best place to go if you are searching for experts in physical therapy! For anyone who had bad experiences in the past it will NOT happen here! Your fears will disappear with your first appointment! Dr. Jessie is amazing and has helped me so much with lower back and sciatica pain. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring and she is with you the entire session, from checking the areas of concern to ensuring you are doing the exercises correctly which is so important. Everyone at DPT including Dr. Tom and Lesa are so genuinely friendly and welcoming and I highly recommend!

I have been very impressed with Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie and their unique approach to physical therapy. I was referred to them by my chiropractor after I had been seeing another physical therapist for months. I came in for neck issues, but they evaluated my entire body to see what might be causing or contributing to this problem. This was very different from my previous experience with physical therapy, where they were only allowed to consider the part of the body that I was referred for. We were able to identify several issues throughout my body and have been working on each of these during my time here. I also appreciate their willingness to problem solve and try different approaches to get to the root of my neck issues. I am still a work in progress, but I am confident that we will continue to improve the way that my body functions and my quality of life. I am so thankful that I found their practice and would highly recommend it to anyone who might be hesitant to try physical therapy.

I was lucky to find DPT after many years of trying to manage hip pain that kept me from many activities. I had tried many doctors and other therapists but they only offered temporary solutions to keep me active. No one was able to diagnose and solve the real problem. A friend recommended DPT after listening to my frustrations. Dr. Tom was able to determine what was causing my pain and most importantly, what I needed to do strengthen my muscles so that I could be pain free. he recommended exercises and stretches based on my progress after every appointment. We have been working together for several months (first in person and then over Zoom since I'm out of town for the summer) to increase my strength and flexibility. I have noticed dramatic changes in the way I move. I'm able to do things now that I haven't been able to do for years. DPT is not like any other physical therapy practice. Each patient has the compete attention of the doctor for a full hour at every appointment. The doctors pay close attention to where I am and change the program to address my needs continuously so that I continue to make progress. I'm really pleased with the results we have gotten so far and look forward to continuing our work together. DPT has changed my life. I highly recommend letting them help you as well.

For nearly a decade I dealt with back pain that would sometimes put me in the ER and other times ruin my day for weeks on end. I saw several doctors over the years with no real success. My bosses, avid fans of Dr. Tom, recommended him and it was a game changer. Not only did he and his team identify what was causing the pain, they actually gave me useful skills, exercises and support to manage the issues on my own. I have not had back pain since!Even after I was better and started trying new things, Dr. Tom was there to offer help - whether that meant discouraging bouldering on a sprained ankle or fixing my hip alignment for warrior 3.

The Doctors at The Doctors of Physical Therapy are absolutely amazing. I am not one to have pain normally but I woke up one morning and could hardly stand up. I was in so much pain. No idea what happened. I called The Doctors of Physical Therapy to see when they could see me. They got me in quickly and made it so that I could stand straight up without pain just a little tightness. They sent me home with exercises I could do to help it get better and better. I went back several times after that to make sure I was making progress and we worked on other little things I didn't know they could help with. Like the vertigo I had every time I laid down. I was so very happy with my results with them. I tell everyone they should go see them. They are the best. I have not had back pain like that again and if I feel it getting tight, I just do some of those exercises again and the tightness goes away. Love the entire staff at The Doctors of Physical Therapy.

I can't tell you how glad I am that I started working with Doctors Tom and Jessie at DPT. I actually live in Boston, and have only had a few sessions with them in person (when I was visiting my mom in Scottsdale). I was honestly skeptical about trying virtual PT but have been so pleased with my sessions and progress.I have been in and out of PT for the past 10+ years, and have been stuck in a pattern of two steps forward then one (or three) steps backwards and have been frustrated that I was never able to make real forward progress. I met with Tom and Jessie in March at my mom's suggestion, who has been a patient of theirs for a while and I have never worked with a team who has taken such a holistic view of my body and its issues. They took an incredibly comprehensive approach to evaluating my body and explained what was happening very clearly. After 2 sessions I went back to Boston and have been meeting with Jessie virtually since then. I continue to be so impressed with her ability to assess my progress and evaluate my body's alignment, strength and mobility virtually. She develops very thoughtful programs for me that work with my schedule, and I feel like I'm steadily making progress. When I started seeing them I had bad back pain and fairly constant knee pain. Since then, my back pain has almost gone away and my knee pain has decreased dramatically. I also hurt my shoulder a few months ago and Jessie responded immediately, was able to diagnose me over Zoom, developed an effective program and monitored my progress well. I wish they were in Boston but I would work with them virtually over anyone else locally any day!

I feel so thankful to have been recommended to DPT by a friend few months ago! Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie have helped me so much! I have had trouble with my lower back for years, since college and now I'm in my 40s. I would have spells off and on over the years where my back would go out and I would be down for a week or two. I have always been active, and I enjoy exercising and playing sports especially with my family, so it was a continual frustration to be out of commission during those times. Not only that, but regular household tasks like mopping, vacuuming, putting sheets on the bed, etc., became things that would randomly set off my back and put me in bed for several days. Chiropractic would help temporarily but it never seemed to last. The last few years the spells came more frequently and lasted longer, until this past March when my back went out and I was down for 2 months, spending much of the time in bed. After trying massage, chiropractic treatments, X-rays that showed nothing specific, I was ready to get an MRI and see a surgeon. That's when my path crossed DPT's. I was skeptical of physical therapy because of what I'd heard from others' experiences, but I was ready to try anything. From my first visit to DPT, I felt hopeful for the first time in years that I could be active again and get over my chronic back trouble. They found that one of my hips was rotated out of position and probably had been for long enough that certain muscles in my back had stopped working completely and others were working incorrectly to compensate. I was assured I didn't need an MRI or surgery, but simply correction of that misalignment, re-teaching the muscles how to work and work correctly, and then strengthening them. It sounded so simple and made so much sense, and what a relief to learn that I didn't have a lifelong condition that I just had to live with or attempt to fix with surgery, as I had been told before! I have been so impressed by the one-on-one sessions with the doctors at DPT...no handing off of the patient to interns, aids or assistants...you're with the doctor the whole time! The staff is so friendly and caring, and have been wonderful, patient listeners to all my concerns and questions. After less than 3 months, I'm amazed at how much stronger I feel, and at how much I'm able to do now without pain. I'm so happy to be able to get back to exercising and playing basketball with my boys, without having to worry about being down for several days from over-doing it. It has been wonderful to learn that my back issues were not just something I had to live with as a result of getting older! I want to shout it from the rooftops that if you have back trouble, you don't just have to live with it, and don't assume you need surgery...you just need DPT!! 🙂

I’m an avid gym goer and crossfitter who had hurt one of my shoulders. It was a nagging injury but I was stubborn and wanted to “work through it”. DPT was recommended to me by a friend and she had given it a glowing recommendation. I will say I was a bit skeptical with the level of praise, but I was proven wrong very quickly: DPT is amazing. From the very first email, DPT (via Leesa) was professional and asked several questions to understand my background as well as the injury itself. My first appointment there was much the same: DPT showed a genuine care for me as a patient, asked several questions, and really wanted to understand the injury. It was definitely a 5-star experience. After my first session with Dr. Steph, I had zero hesitation about signing up for a bit more comprehensive therapy that would integrate my overall physical goals with my treatment plan. They didn’t just want me to get to “good enough” but wanted me to exceed where I had been before with my shoulder. Having been to PT before, I believe DPT’s desire to get me truly better than I was when I walked in the door set them apart. The doctors (Dr. Steph, Dr. Tom, and Dr. Jesse) at DPT created a progressive improvement plan to get me to where I wanted to be and I’m happy to say it worked! The staff there is not just giving you things to do to get better but they are by your side as you do it.I would highly recommend DPT to someone. If they were hesitant because they hadn’t heard about them, I would relay my initial skepticism and the final result of me returning to the gym at 110% of where I was prior to going in!

When I lost my ability to stand and walk due to severe sciatic pain, I tried everything to fix my leg: back surgery, physical therapy, pain management, spinal injections, spinal eletrostimulation, acupuncture, massage, dietary analysis…. Nothing helped at all. Then I found Dr Padilla, and he gave me back my life! When you go through this, you learn how many things you can no longer do if you can’t stand or walk. Now I’m back to walking 3-4 miles a day; I can lift and hold my grandbabies; I can go to parties without having to sit in a corner; I can go shopping again.What was different about Dr Padilla’s approach is that he carefully analyzed the root cause of my problem. All the other doctors I had seen were focused on alleviating the symptoms. Once Dr Padilla identified problem areas, he worked with me to test his hypotheses and then to fix the specific problems he identified through a combination of physical therapy and referrals to some very unique specialists, including one who could repair muscle tears without surgery and even one who could help me cope with the mental and emotional challenges that I am convinced contributed to the problem.I can’t speak highly enough of Dr Padilla and his practice. They are professional, caring, supportive in every way. I only wish I had seen him before all my other attempts. His method is virtually risk free, and I could have avoided a lot of doctor appointments and needless and expensive treatments, not to mention losing a couple of years to my other attempts.

My experience with Dr. Tom and The Doctors of Physical Therapy was exceptional.  Dr. Tom was recommended to me by my fitness trainer.   I saw Dr. Tom for lower back pain.  This was not my first experience with physical therapy treatment for back pain but I believe it was my best experience.  Dr. Tom quickly accessed my back issues and gave me a set of daily exercises and stretches.   After six weeks with regular office appointments,  I now can move more freely without pain.I would highly recommend The Doctors of Physical Therapy.

So worth it to give them a shot!!

The Doctors of Physical Therapy is an excellent organization comprised of passionate professionals! I have been in and out of several other physical therapy practices where I was given the same diagnosis over and over and still failed to see improvement. I was in a constant state of discomfort and pain and was unable to participate in the activities that I loved to do. Overall my quality of living was sub par. When I was introduced to the Doctors of Physical Therapy, they almost instantly identified the source of my discomfort and constructed a treatment plan that was so incredibly specific to my needs, results were almost immediate. I have been able to freely live my life and participate in the physical activities I so choose. Such as; weight lifting, rock climbing, hiking, and every day activities at home and at work. I recommend them to anybody who is stuck where I was, or feels anyway limited. They will help you get your life back!

I am writing on behalf of my experience with DPT. When I first went there I was limping and barely able to walk without pain due to a labral tear in my hip and lots of hip pain.Upon entering DPT I was greeted by Lesa, the receptionist. She is fantastic and such a warm person. Then I met with Dr. Tom and Dr. Jessie. They are wonderful. They made me feel like I was an integral part of the team there.I was referred to DPT by a friend. It's the best thing that happened for me and my hip. Dr. Jessie has helped me immensely with my hip. I no longer am limping and I walk without pain. I would recommend DPT and all their staff to everybody because of their professionalism, great attitude, and such pleasant people to be associated with.After every session I attend at DPT I am able to walk without a limp and am pain free.

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.

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.

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!

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.
