Here what our clients are saying...

"What makes you better than other PT places I've been is the warm caring atmosphere where everyone there makes a special effort to get to know you and make you feel welcome and comfortable. Everyone there really does go the extra mile to provide personal service. In addition, I think Debbie is top notch, always listening and adjusting plan as needed, always providing clear thorough explanations, always very friendly yet remains professional. If I need PT again in the future, I'll be back!"

“I have been to Mark on many occasions over the past years, I am always very satisfied!!”

“I have told many that the reason I choose Atlantic Sports & Rehab is because when I need Physical Therapy for an injury it always improves!! Thanks for that!”

"Wish I had started PT earlier.  Will definitely return if I have additonal problems."

"It was really nice to have a therapist that understood what was needed to get me back on my feet. They were great about fighting the insurance companies to make sure my health came first. My therapist was open minded, thought outside the box and really listened to what I had to say. I couldn't imagine having my road to recovery anywhere else."

Atlantic Sports & Rehab is my go-to physical therapy and rehabilitation facility. I have used their services for nearly four years for different physical therapy needs, specifically: back, shoulder, and ankle. Stephanie, Debbie, and Tim will treat your specific needs and get you "back on your feet". The front office personnel were always professional and courteous. They handled any discrepancies quickly and with no-hassle to me. Thank you for all your professional assistance!"​
