What Patients Are Saying
… It’s rare that providers take the time to hear your full story, but it’s incredibly valuable when they can weave together all the parts of your health history. [Stacey’s] demeanor is calm and inquisitive, and I quickly felt at ease…
Stacey is compassionate and shines through with exceptional knowledge and understanding. After visiting many healthcare providers, I was amazed at how much progress I made in just a few sessions and also super appreciated her quick communication with me through an organized and effective manner.
Cory & Deena are incredible & really helped me to understand & minimize my pain. They made me feel comfortable & welcomed when doctors had made me & my pain feel invalid in the past. I am so thankful I found 5 Point & can say that I use the PT stretches & advice I learned here every day.
