The staff at Preferred Rehab are just incredible. After 12 years of an injury, I have dreaded physio and have typically not received quality care. Since my surgery this past June, I have been treated by Ryan and he has made my experience nothing short of amazing. My recovery has been going so well these past few months, let alone I feel extremely motivated and enthusiastic about doing my physio sessions! Harkomal has also assisted me at my appointments, and she also been so kind, been a great help to Ryan, and has helped me feel comfortable throughout my rehab. They also go above and beyond to push me as a recovering athlete and even squeeze me in for appointments despite their busy schedules. Even the staff who are not treating me are always smiling and kind from the moment I am greeted at the door to the moment I leave. I highly recommend Preferred Rehab for those injured or seeking any basic medial support - they truly are the best team for anyone.
