Hear what other Pappas OPT patients have to say.
I joined Pappas OPT in 2017 as a new graduate and could not be more happy with the sense of community and shared passion for patient-centered care that comes naturally to this company. As a new graduate I was given guidance and mentorship that helped me bridge the gap between school and the workspace. Pappas…
I knew Pappas OPT would be the right fit for me when I was here for my first clinical affiliation. The focus on company culture and continuing education is what helped me make my decision to apply. What really helped solidify my decision was when I voiced my desire to build a pelvic health program,…
I have had the opportunity to work for Pappas OPT for the past 10 years. In that time I have been fortunate enough to work with some of my best friends, establish great memories and grow professionally. Pappas OPT exemplifies a culture that puts people first, both their employees and their patients. They want to…
The entire team here makes you feel like family. I can’t believe they completely healed my shoulder. No need for surgery!!! I’ll never go anywhere else for PT. They all stay on the cutting edge of new technology.
I absolutely loved the entire staff! They are all welcoming and caring. They do indeed treat you like family and I couldn’t have asked for a better place. Give Pappas OPT a try, you won’t regret it!
My second time here for therapy, and I think you guys are great. I would definitely refer you all to anybody. Great, friendly and helpful staff.
Great staff and experience! Everyone I have worked with thus far has been extremely professional and welcoming! Dan and his team are flexible and accommodating to ensure their patients get the best care!
This was my first time at Pappas OPT. I have to say it was one of the best doctor/health/clinic experiences I have ever had. I was treated with respect, received a thorough examination and ongoing treatment plan, and was met with a smiling face by every employee.
Pappas OPT Physical and Hand Therapy embodies their mantra of treating you like family. They both took an interest in not only my ankle injury but in me as a person making me feel comfortable and easing all anxieties we face when going through an injury.
My experience was great. The treatment was excellent and it was explained in great detail. My pain and discomfort were eliminated with a diverse exercise program. The whole staff is awesome.
