Really great first impression.
Krina was very helpful and understanding with the shoulder problem.
I was experiencing pretty bad shoulder pain for several months before finally scheduling an appointment with Krina (this was my first time going to PT). She was able to quickly discover the area that was causing me pain and immediately provided treatment and exercises that helped me feel better. After a few weeks of appointments, my shoulder was (and still is) pain free. Krina was awesome and she's also super nice- highly recommend her!
Krina was fantastic, took the time to explain my shoulder issue and talk about realistic outcomes with therapy. More importantly, the exercises and treatments she planned out for me seem to go far and above the average PT place-- I've had many injuries over the years and PT usually consists of a table with 10 other people in the room doing basic exercises you can probably do at home. Krina's treatments are private and one-on-one and she is incorporating a basic PT foundation with fun stuff like pilates for strength and yoga for flexibility. Great therapist, great facilities, great front desk.
Krina Desai is fantastic. The facilities here are great and I didn't have to wait at all!
Krina and her colleagues have been very accommodating and helpful over the past few months of appointments. They are flexible with scheduling and billing. Still seeing her and highly recommend!
