Out of all the typical physical therapy places that have physical therapy assistants. I would say that Court and Bueller is definitely one of the better ones. I've actually been to this area twice because it happened to be conveniently in the same building as where I work. The first time I went for my lumbar or a lower back pain. And the second time I went in for thoracic outlet syndrome or neck scalene pain with some numbness and tingling in the hands. Both times. My therapist was William Bill roper. I would say of all the main physical therapist I've seen at any location. He's definitely one of the best ones. He has a humorous goofy dry wit, but I can tell he's both very smart but also very adaptable. On both my low back and neck he can put a lot of pressure on the very tight muscles and comments were it's particularly bad for me and can think of good stretches to do. Whenever Bill wasn't available for the appointment times I wanted the usual replacement I got was Benjamin Ott who was also pretty good and one that bill personally recommended. Occasionally I had to get other therapists and they were fine but not as memorable. Maybe it it was because I usually came on early mornings when it was slow but unlike other physical therapy places with assistance, usually when I got to the part when the PT assistant would have to guide me through my exercises. Actually thought those are one of the better experiences I've had in that regard. Usually at most they would work with two patients at a time, but most of the time I got the full attention from the assistant, which is something I appreciate that. Sadly, a lot of other physical therapy places I've learned do not do. The main reason I'm giving this place a four star and not a five star or a couple of reasons. 1) this place is one of the most strict at not starting physical therapy without insurance approval. You can in theory start a out of pocket PT payment, but if you want to use insurance this place straight up won't start treating you, which may leave you high and dry for at least a week if not two weeks. 2) this is more of a nitpick and might have something to do with my thoracic outlet syndrome which is hard to treat. But I found other physical therapy places that have one to one physical therapist to patient therapy with no assistant. I've come to much prefer those because you get to be more intimate with the physical therapist and in my case also act as an occupational therapist on the side to actively help with things like proper posture and alternate ways to do things to avoid pain. Sadly at Courey Even with the best therapists, they only see you for like 10 to 15 minutes before they move on to someone else, meaning they don't have much time to help you with the smaller things. Otherwise I don't have too much to complain about, if you have a issue and you think you would be fine with having a physical therapy assistant help with the exercises I think Courey is one of? If not the best place to get that type of physical therapy treatment. I'll just much prefer places that are one to one physical therapist to patient relationships only.
