Patient Reviews

  • Melissa made me feel very comfortable during my recovery. She explained everything so clearly and her medical knowledge was impressive. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an at home physical therapist!

    Chris S.

  • I have always played sports, mostly pickup basketball leading to my share of injuries. In my 30s I finally decided to properly rehab my injury and Melissa my PT made my recovery simple. Not only did she meet me at my home for my initial evaluation, but she gave me my exercises electronically on my phone. Now after 6 weeks I can play basketball again and I am extremely happy with the results.

    Luke R.

  • I contacted Melissa while I was eight months pregnant and in a horrible amount of pain working from home. Melissa was patient in listening to my woes and incredibly clear when presenting solutions. Not only did Melissa solve the problems at hand, but she left me with additional exercises that I could begin postpartum. This attention to detail and foresight sets Melissa apart and I cannot recommend her enough.

I created Optimal Recovery and Therapy with the top priority of putting patients first. I've seen too often a healthcare system that treats patients like products instead of people, moving through each case like an assembly line to maximize profits instead of improving patient results.
