"Ben is phenomenal! I've been in and out of PT (primarily for various sports related injuries) since I was 15 years old. Ben is the first physical therapist I've ever had who takes the time to ensure that you understand the reasons behind the exercises you're doing. When I started seeing him at the end of March, I could not play with my toddler, exercise or even lie on my back without tremendous pain. A couple of months later and I'm back to doing all of the things I love. Ben listened to me and came up with a plan and exercises that would help in my particular situation. Ben helped me understand the mechanics, I put in the time and did the work (both at PT and at home) and my ailments improved. I've been discharged and am still utilizing the exercises he taught me to continue building strength. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of PT in the area."

"I have been in PT with Ben for 3 months now for my arthritic neck. My pain has been reduced from severe to tolerable, and my flexibility has been improved. Ben has taught me numerous exercises to help me on non-therapy days, but I look forward to going to therapy because he has what I call "magic fingers". In addition, Ben is an excellent conversationalist, which enhances my sessions enormously. Thank you Ben, for being there for me."

"After just a few week with Ben I have shown much improvement in the strength in my leg so that I am able to return to near normal life. My weakness had me slowing down and begin changing my lifestyle. I am getting older but I can still be nearly as active as I was. Ben showed me exercises I could do and would do with my busy schedule. Thanks Ben, you've been a great help."

"Both my 83 year old mother-in-law and I have had physical therapy with Ben. We appreciated the convenience of having PT where my mother-in-law resided at Creekside. Ben has a great way of working with my mother-in-law who has dementia. He motivated in a caring way to get us back to functionality following our injuries, illness, and surgery. If we need PT in our family again we will work with Ben."

"Ben was able to eliminate the pain and restore range of motion from my unrepairable torn rotator cuff in 5 wks with just exercise. Two thumbs up! "

"I am a 69-year-old man who had a MRI projecting a leaking herniated back disc. To say the least I was in severe pain. Thankfully I was referred to Ben. I appreciate his taking the time to thoroughly understand my diagnosis and plan a recovery. I am 5 weeks into treatment and can say I have significant increased mobility with no back or leg pain! It is understandable we are not all the same but I have a great deal of gratitude that over a relatively short period of time I am a true success story of Merit Rehab!

"I've been in and out of PT for the past 7 years for my lower back. Ben took time to explain how each movement affected my injury and gave me an understanding of what to do and what to avoid. As soon as I understood this and was shown in detail what was going on with my back I now can enjoy some relief " FINALLY " Very friendly staff. Thanks Merit !!!! "
