After a great therapy experience at Primacare in 2010 and 2012, I was convinced that Dr. Ram Shahani and his team would help me to recover successfully from my two total knee replacement surgeries (right TKR in Oct 2015 and left TKR in Jan 2017). After each surgery, I had pain all the way from my lower back down to ankles. I was using a walker. I was fortunate to have Dr. Ram, Sara Schumer-Plourde and Ninola Balaban as my therapists. They are highly skilled professionals with healing power. They guided me through various routines to strengthen my legs and regain my balance. They manipulated my knee-joints and massaged the knee area to improve the range of motion and enhance the muscle strength. After three weeks, I started walking with a cane and climbed up and down stairs with ease. My therapy ended in May. Now I am pain free and almost cane-free too. Here patients are treated like family. I always get a positive vibe when I enter this facility. It starts with a warm welcome by the receptionists followed by friendly greetings by the therapists. Their dedication, genuine care and encouragement accelerate the recovery process. I strongly recommend this place to anyone who needs physical therapy. I like to thank the therapists Nashon and Deepika for their help and the office staff (Anna, Nedi, Norma and Laura) for appointment scheduling and reminder calls. My thanks to Divya for resolving the insurance issues. Once again, thank you Dr. Ram, Sara and Ninola for everything.

I've been doing aquatic physical therapy with Leigh, and I couldn't be happier. She is very knowledgeable, a great listener, and I always feel like I'm in the best hands. After only a few weeks, I'm seeing great improvement in my pain levels and mobility already. Having had less favorable experiences with physical therapy elsewhere, I highly recommend Primacare. The physical therapists and support staff are always there to provide the best care and customer service.

I am currently working with Leigh in aquatic therapy. She has been an awesome motivator and so very helpful with my chronic back pain. She is all about the entire person, not just the pain. I feel so much stronger in a short period of time just by working with her. I highly recommend her for anyone dealing with chronic or acute pain management . Susan Nasoulis

It give me pleasure to w rite this review on behalf of Mr. Ram . On the very first day I started my Physical Therapy I can truly say Mr. Ram just simply has a healing spirit . As he begin to direct me to each therapy that I had did many time before, it just was not the same. I instantly start feeling better I was hurting very badly when I first started my Physical therapy Mr Ram has the ability to show you what to do and it works most of my therapy has made me feel worse than I did when I begin it . But not here I am able to move a little faster and look forward to come for my work out with Mr. Ram. When I leave I feel so much better although; I know that this is something that I will need for a life time, I am so happy that I got a chance to see that I can really feel better, he has really made a change in my life. If it were possible, I would like to come every day , Mr. Ram Sir. I say thank you very much for giving me some of my life back. I would say I am about 50 or 60% better with the both of your works on my behalf. I feel much better Mr.Ram and Mrs Leigh you are purely God sent Thank you Holly Farley

After foot surgery I couldn't walk properly. Not acceptable for an active 57 year old! My foot and ankle had been still too long. I'd forgotten the mechanics (motor memory) of walking, and I was afraid to put weight on my toes. Primacare Physical Therapy helped me regain muscle strength and mobility and overcome my fears so I could walk effortlessly again. Thank you for giving me my life back!

I had a wonderful experience with my pool therapy with Leigh. She was very professional and genuinely seemed to care about my well being. She took interest in how I was feeling and made me feel at ease and comfortable. I'm glad I don't currently need therapy but if I did I would be sure to return and ask for Leigh. Thank you for your work.

I was referred to Primacare Physical Therapy by my Dr. due to pain in my lower back and right leg. I mostly worked with Ram and Ninola who were both very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. In the beginning I could barely bend or move my leg without having excruciating pain. After a few sessions I started to feel the pain easing away. By the time my therapy was about to be over, I was completely pain free and felt wonderful. The whole office staff was very polite and courteous and I never had to wait for more than just a few minutes. I highly recommend Primacare for all your Physical Therapy needs.

Due to neuropathy I have no feeling in my feet. I am very unsteady on my feet and I use a cane or walker. I have been doing aquatic therapy for the past few weeks with Leigh and I have noticed a lot of improvement in my mobility and the pain in both my knees and (R) hip have subsided from a pain level of 8-9 to a 2-3. Leigh is a great therapist and she provides an enormous amount of support. She is very upbeat and professional. I really enjoy my PT in the pool. I would definitely recommend Primacare Physical Therapy to all my friends and family.

I have been in pain for years due to an injury on my L5 and was finally sent for aquatic therapy with Primacare Physical Therapy. Leigh has been working with me and it is like night and day. I do not leave in pain, I can walk and move again. She is professional, compassionate, and truly fantastic at her job. Leigh's personality and care for her patients puts her above the rest. She has gone above and beyond to make me feel like I am succeeding. I would recommend Leigh to anyone with an injury. Thank you for giving me back my life, Leigh!
I was sent to begin aquatic therapy due to pain after surgery for a herniated L5. Leigh started by assessing my abilities. She developed a program that doesn't discourage and increases to not allow for boredom. She works with me for about an hour and a half twice a week. Leigh also created a program that I can follow on my off days.

Was treated for neck injury after being rear ended in a car accident. The treatments received were very effective and lots of professional attention and care was given to my specific need. The Dr. and staff are very knowledgeable of the therapy that is required to help get patients up and running again.

I have just completed eight weeks of therapy at Primacare. My therapy included both traditional therapy at the clinic and aquatic therapy at a local pool. Primacare provided a caring environment and an effective program to help me with my ongoing pain. The regiment created by Dr. Ram and Jennifer in the clinic was strenuous, and those 60 minutes often seemed to be the longest hour of the day. But the exercises strengthen my muscles and brought me relief. Cindy provided the aquatic therapy, and she, too was just wonderful. Positive, full of energy, encouraging....she was a joy to work with. As a non-swimmer, I was initially intimidated by the pool. Cindy's personality was perfect for assuring me that I would be ok. Her gentle coaxing enabled me to overcome my hesitancy and to reap the benefits of the program that she designed for me. The results became obvious after a few sessions as I quickly began to reap the benefits of aquatic workouts. Even though my therapy at the clinic and the pool has ended, I fully intend to continue many of the exercises at home on a daily basis. And I intend to visit a pool once a week to continue the exercises that Cindy taught me. If I ever need physical therapy again, I won't hesitate to call upon Primacare.

Wonderful experience! After I broke my arm/elbow I couldn't straighten it or move it without pain, I only had 4 weeks of pt and my arm feels back to normal. I'm an ICU RN and I need to be able to use my arm A LOT at work and so far no problems :) I was mostly with Jen, she is great! And Ram and the rest of the staff are friendly and helpful! The facility is clean and neat. You will be happy with their care!
