Loren, Jessica and the entire team were incredibly professional and friendly. They actually made me feel like I wanted to come to physical therapy. And I can't say that for all PT partners I've chosen in the past!
The other good part is that when My back started feeling better/stronger, and they knew I could do the exercises at home, they graduated me. They didn't keep asking me to come back for appointments to increase their profits. They were honest and told me I needed to be a "big girl" and do it on my own! And they gave me the tools and the knowledge to do so.

I decided to go to KODA Physical Therapy on the advice of my orthopedic doctor who said Loren was one of the best physical therapists in Petaluma. I have not seen others in Petaluma, but I can say that I have had an excellent experience here.
Loren is great at explaining how your body works and the reasons for doing certain exercises. The building and equipment are really nice and he definitely will take as much time with you as you need. He also gets the job done and doesn't require you to come back for more therapy than is needed.
It's really nice being able to trust your therapist when doing certain exercises.
