Calvin is very professional. He helped me to feel better immediately. He understood how I was feeling. He didn’t judge me for quitting my exercise routine during the pandemic and never returning. He listened to my complaints and I am very happy with him as my therapist.

The reasoning for my score was based on the treatment, the open ended questions we had back and fort on how on what we were going to work on first. The analysis of my examination with Calvin was very detailed and he explained everything as he worked with me. After our session Calvin explained if he was not available there were other physical therapist who could see me as well.

Calvin cuts to the chase. My original diagnosis was a right inflamed glute. He massaged it. Then instructed a series of moves. Led exercises. Built upon the therapy of his colleague. Handed me my work, all of which we did during the session. Today’s session logically extended the therapy. All explained in detail and outcome expected.

I'm 73 years old. I been very athletic over my 73 years. As a result, I've seen more than my share of physical therapist: pulled or torn muscles, rotator cup injury, torn meniscus, bulging disc etc. etc. I never had a more professional, knowledgeable or competent physical therapist than Calvin. I would rate him in the top echelon of all the therapist I've ever see. I would recommend him to my immediate wife, even my mother, who she is a real skeptic.
