Patient Testimonials

“I could not be happier with the help the Pro-Motion staff has given me over the past three years, first with my shoulder and recently with my ankle injury. The facility is very clean and orderly. The staff is friendly, patient and knowledgeable. Every time I was there the PT worked with me as well as the assistants. Simply put, I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else!”

– Jill S.

“I have been going to Pro-Motion for a chronic back condition. Everyone there is great. Vinnie, who is the owner, is terrific. He is a very caring, empathetic person and gives all patients his undivided attention when he is with you. The entire staff is attentive and so nice. I would highly recommend Pro-Motion to everyone (and I do).”

– Sharon S.

“Very caring, they know what they are doing. Actually sad to leave when I had reached my goals and beyond. Two separate occasions, two total knee replacements. I’m better than new!”

– Dee K.
