PATIENT SUCCESS STORIES
Patients have trusted us to provide an exceptional and effective approach to physical therapy.
Eric Vargas was my PT. He was incredibly knowledgeable, went through exercises and stretches with me, not only telling me what to do but also what muscle groups were being targeted and why. He truly was a miracle worker.
I’ve been dealing with knee pain for over a year and a half, to the point where at its worst, I didn’t want to move. I went to countless doctors appointments, had two MRI’s, went to multiple physical therapists, and got my knee injected way more than I’d ever want to. I had resigned myself to no more. No more long walks. No workouts with impact. But today I finally ran a full mile without pain and it’s all thanks to Eric. I could not have done it without him. He truly is one of the best physical therapist around!!
I was having pretty substantial lower back pain at work for several months, and as a dentist it was difficult to work. I tried going to a chiropractor several times but they only provided short term relief and the pain never fully went away. I went to Dr. Vargas once a week for a month and did my at home physical therapy and my back pain is completely gone. Highly recommend Dr. Vargas.
Dr. Vargas has been a life saver for me!
I came to physical therapy looking for relief from arthritis, degenerative disk and fibromyalgia. I had been to various doctors, pain specialists, chiropractors, massage, and practiced various exercise routines that either didn’t help at all or only made the pain worse. I had major depression and a major lack of motivation.
At 65, instead of feeling as if all I had to look forward to was more pain, Dr. Vargas empowered me to take control of my body through learning the correct exercises and how to keep myself motivated.
Thank you, Dr. Vargas!
