Jill is great! She makes an effort to make a personal connection with patients. She is also great at sharing knowledge and educating so that you can make adjustments as needed and be more independent, not as reliant on an external person.

Jill is one of the best PTs that I have ever worked with. She asked for a detailed history that considered not just my physical well-being but mental and emotional as well. She explained her rationale behind her line of questioning. Her first evaluation of my injury was very thorough. I never felt like I was asking dumb questions and she answered everything I asked. I highly recommend her.
