Great experience w Donna, she is amazing!! But after getting referred here by my doctor and approved by insurance as well as by PT innovations all my appt. were suddenly cancelled and I'm out! So weird..and very unprofessional. 5 stars for Donna 0 stars everywhere else. I would like my co pay back as well! Waste of my time.

Friendly and professional staff.

Donna in Orinda was wonderful. She picked up on my scoliosis right away. The muscle pull will take time, and a trip to Europe did not help recovery. I'll be in touch to resume treatment.

Assessment gave me hope I can get sciatic pain behind me and establish ongoing exercise program suitable to strenghen core. Like holistic approach.

I really y i my visit there yesterday, gave me good advice help me feel a little better then when i came in there but i still have a long way to go until then. O n treater me well n thanks for that.

Thank you

Excellent balance of efficiency and friendliness

The physical therapist was very knowledgeable and professional during the evaluation. The physical therapy assistant did a great job showing the exercises and providing written instructions.


Only had initial visit so far

Therapist, Donna, was kind and patient and seemed knowledgeable. However, location is not ideal for anyone using a walker. Walkway from parking lot is rough and pebbly and catches the walker up. Dangerous unless you go very slow.

Staff went out of the way to deal with insurance forms

Christine is great.

Allen and Thomas were excellent. My referring doctor directed me to ontain pt only from Allen. Allen said that's not how your practice works. I have informed her (Dr Sawires). Confusing

Marshawn was excellent the way she work with my knee, instructed me on cane usage, and even had me taking a few steps... I was impressed

My consultation was on time, the physical therapist (Chris Allen) was attentive, helpful, very competent and pleasant. Her advice was clear and, I think, appropriate.

Excellent as it has always been for me. Chris (Allen) is my savior.

Unfortunately I hurt more after the visit. My neck pain has been activated. Not sure what to do.

I love PTI. I find everyone very knowledgable and dedicated to doing their best for all clients. They are always focused on the best outcome.

Christine is great -- thoughtful, funny, great hands .... And on this last visit, I met Julie, who was also good to talk with as she was doing the ultrasound on my knees. Also, the reception staff have always been cheerful, clear, and generally on top of it!

The people are friendly. During a physical therapy evaluation, the therapist explained my health condition and treatment plan very thoroughly. I felt It's very helpful in my first visit.

Courteous and friendly staff.

Everything that was discussed with me with the Physical Therapist was very positive. I have hope that I will come out on top with lots of work and determination.

Chris is an excellent therapist. She helped me two years ago. I was really looking forward to working with her again. Sadly, after yesterday's appt the next opening with Chris was three weeks away. Seeking therapy elsewhere where I can be seen on a weekly basis by a physical therapist.

Thank you. Very pleased with Christina n staff

An evaluation of current status was thourough and a plan to restore muscular strength an stamina was set for the future. Immediate massage stabilized problem knees.

Excellent treatment

The evaluation was carefully done . The therapy was helpful and considered my personal needs.

I much appreciated being able simply to get a brush-up on my ongoing independent pool exercises without going through a more elaborate reevaluation process. Most helpful! Continuity of care is most important to me, and I've been able to get it at PTI.

Excellent care and very professional.

Julia and Christine were great

Friendly knowledgable personnel. Please clean tables between clients. I was able to detect body odor from previous client

I did paid cash for first visit, I felt it worth every penny. I felt staff are honest and sincere, i will recommend to all my friend and my neighbor. Please keep up with good work. Thank you so much.

Seeing Han has always been a positive experience--the way he listens, assesses the situation, gives clear advice. He's knowledgeable and sympathetic--and always encouraging. Thank you, Han!

Very welcoming environment for first visit. PT and aide were professional and even more importantly did not waste time attending to the diagnosis and treatment for my injury. After some years in sports medicine as a physician I was quite comfortable with the approach and method of treatment. Especially leaving the facility feeling better than when I arrived!

Everyone in the office are very friendly and professional. Lucy evaluated me and very thorough. I highly recommend it!!!

I have always enjoyed PT Innovations, although I was a little saddened that Mina & Christopher are no longer there. I am however, happy that they both are making great choices for their business. I was pleasantly surprised today to meet Austin & to find that he is equally exceptional as Christopher. Great choice.

That Lee guy is really hot

Excellent care over years of different needs on my part. Chris Allen is on time, on target and really listens to me as she integrates the info from my doctor.

All the therapists are highly knowledgeable practioners.

Friendly, professional and could not be happier with the treatment plan and service...
