My therapist, Perla, is supremely knowledgeable, compassionate, sensitive, and encouraging. As a hip replacement patient who had experienced complications, I was very motivated to get well, yet cautious about making my condition worse. Perla knew which exercises would help most and just how hard to push me. She has always been positive and professional while being warmly human and cheerful!Kathy
