  • review rating 5  Move Better is great - organized, kind, compassionate, and skilled. At one point I had an issue that wasn't making progress due to other health setbacks, and I was extremely frustrated. My therapist was so incredibly encouraging and understanding. Being incapacitated is discouraging, especially when you are an active person. Soft skills really are not just nice-to-haves, they are essential. Move Better also appears to be extremely well-managed practice. For context, I recently had occasion to go to another practice. The therapists there were also very good, but I got the sense that the management didn't give them enough time to complete paperwork. My plan of care and the development of a home exercise program at the other practice was chaotic at best. I don't blame the therapists, but I do blame the management. Management does affect care. Excellent management makes a huge difference, and Move Better has that too. To the management: don't ever change except if it's to make your physical therapists happy at work, to offer an encouraging work atmosphere, so they have emotional bandwidth to continue to encourage and provide excellent care for their patients.

  • review rating 5  Alan was very knowledgeable and great in helping me deal with low back pain. He worked with me to develop a strategy to mitigate pain and strengthen the area as well as increase flexibility. Alan is great for people with issues stemming from active lifestyles and athletics or those wishing to get back in the gym. The office was very helpful in offering flexible scheduling. Would highly recommend.

  • review rating 5  Dr. Rodney has shattered the paradigm of what the traditional physical therapist looks like (the meet & greet, canned plan, PT assistant care model, [the not ideal one?]). In stark contrast, there is perfection in Dr. Rodney’s, Move Better approach, “A personal welcome by your certified therapist, a thorough evaluation/examination with undivided attention, an individualized plan, a one-on-one visit with your PT (no assistants), and their informing your doctors/surgeons of your progress”, is absolutely brilliant. Suffice is to say that my experience with Dr. Rodney, has been nothing short of remarkable; from his evaluating my complaint, valiantly attempting to keep me out of surgery, and then taking me through not one, but two hip repair procedures over the past 28 months, has shown Dr. Rodney to be among the very best.
