" To the entire staff at ProActive Thank you for getting me on my knee! :) "
" Demitri came highly recommended by several people. His PT used on me was most helpful. I will not hesitate to return for treatment when necessary. "
" The entire staff cares. I was in so much Achilles pain when I began. After hard work, I feel great. Special thanks to Tunde and Nick! "

" When I reported for my first two visits at ProActive, I didn't know what to expect. I knew nothing about the realities of physical therapy. By my third visit, I felt comfortable with the situation and found the environment to be very professional, pleasant and accommodating.
Now that I have become a "frequent flyer," the atmosphere reminds me of thew "Cheers" TV theme song: "Where everybody knows your name, and they're always gladd you came..."
That theme song isn't playing in the background, but a pleasant mix of tunes is constantly streaming, with a rhythm that ironically seems to match the rhythm of the assigned exercises.
A nice selection of plants compliments the comfortable waiting room decor and the well organizes, open airy therapy rooms. They are so perfect-looking that I assumed they were artificial. However, they are real and definitely contribute to the overall happy, healthy theme. "
" The Proactive experience is truly patient focused. The individual attention I was given helped me understand how to cooperate in healing my injured shoulder. Everyone is warm and encouraging - I have used ProActive each time I required physical therapy and I have always had satisfactory results. "
