I had a chronic wrist and arm pain which caused me unable to work in front of a computer. I've had an excellent experience with my physical therapy at Respire Physical Therapy with Dr.Teng!!! After a few sessions of workouts and stretches, I was able to transition from 10 minutes of computer time to 2-3 hrs of computer time! Dr.Teng's care for patient's needs and professionalism made me feel so comfortable and motivated. He gave me a resistance band to work at home and also print out of the workouts/stretches we did during the session. At the end of the session, Helen (receptionist) gave me a cute certificate for finishing the therapy session. Every time I went, Helen and Gritz (the emotional support dog) greeted me so nicely!! Overall, I definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a professional, reliable and outstanding physical therapist.
I am so happy that I found this clinic. The gym are was so clean and I worked directly with a therapist the entire time. My ankle no longer swells when I walk now. Thank you to the staff.
I came to respire after I hurt my rotator cuff throwing a baseball with my son. I was very worried that I would have to get surgery but Kevin paid attention to everything I told him and I was able to throw again without going through surgery. I could not be more pleased with the care I received. I would highly recommend this place to anyone going through an injury.
Dr. Kevin Teng is an amazing and inspiring physical therapist, coach, teacher, and person. After recovering from a broken foot, I had to relearn how to walk and regain strength and flexibility in my foot. When I was searching for a physical therapist, Respire kept popping up as the top search result, so I decided to go with them. OMG—easily the best decision I ever made. Before the accident, I would have told you I was in decent shape. After Physical Therapy (PT) with Kevin, I feel that not only are my foot and ankle stronger and healthier than ever before, but Kevin’s patient coaching and teaching have me approaching the best shape of my life. Kevin devised a plan of therapy that had me slowly and steadily regaining strength and flexibility. When I had problems because my other leg was overcompensating for the weakness in the foot, he worked with me to “balance” things out. When my knee started acting up because it now had to engage in a regular range of motion, he tirelessly worked to help me strengthen it. He listens, and works very hard to make sure you become healthy again. (I honestly cannot say enough good things about him; he is so kind and generous. When I was stressing about getting a face mask during the early weeks of the pandemic, he gave me two reusable masks from his own supply. He gave me resistance bands to keep on strengthening at home. After I expressed an interest in getting my own TENS unit, he gave me a spare that he had and showed me how to use it. Kevin is an amazing person.) Behind the scenes are Helen the office manager, and Griz, the therapy dog and client relations manager. Helen is wonderful. She is so nice and works hard to make patients welcome and comfortable. And, of course, there is Griz, therapy dog and as I liked to joke, the “client relations manager.” In the exceedingly unlikely event that you are mad about physical therapy (which wouldn’t happen because Kevin and Helen are very responsive, professional, and just plain fantastic), I guarantee that petting Griz will make you feel better. (Physical therapy never felt like a chore with Griz running up and giving you a tennis ball to throw for him. :-). Griz’s antics always put a smile on my face; after throwing the ball, he would retrieve it and proudly prance back, showing off the ball and how well he caught it.) The last three months have been such that I have come to consider Helen, Kevin, and Griz good friends. I am glad to be fully recovered from the broken foot, but I will miss seeing them every week. The Respire team definitely deserves 6 out of 5 stars: they go above and beyond to rehabilitate and inspire you.
I had a pinched nerve in my lower back that was disrupting my sleep. I was really worried that I would not be able to go on my hiking trip to Iceland this March. I tried everything from chiropractors, stretch classes, medications and nothing seemed to work. Kevin did a lot of hands-on therapy for my back and gave me personalized exercises. The burning/tingling in my leg went away! I am so happy that I found Respire. If I ever need physical therapy again, this is where I will go.
I was able to call and book an appointment on the same day. I usually expect at least a 15 minute wait time for my appointments but my physical therapist saw me right at the time of my appointment. My therapist even gave me a free theraband for my exercises!
Dr. Teng's very knowledgeable, professional and encouraging. He explained my condition for me to understand and continued to remind me to not lose hope throughout my journey. I can't thank him enough. The front desk staff is also lovely and kind. I feel extremely motivated and cannot wait to return back to golf! I would highly recommend this clinic.
My surgery was 5/21 and this past Sunday I was able to walk about 50 feet without my cane. I am thrilled and can't imagine what you could do better!
Listened to what I was saying and how I was feeling. Kevin is excellent. I have already recommended him to coworkers.
