First time appointment today with RMT Taylor. I was very impressed; she took the time to review and assess my needs. Very friendly, polite, professional, knowledgeable and… a great sense of humour. Their facility is overly exceptionally clean. They take the Covid protocol very seriously hence I feel very comfortable going there. It’s only been approximately two months since I starting attending Moveo, but it feels like I have been going there for years.
I love going here for my Physio! Georgina is very accommodating and welcoming with a big smile. Rob is very smart, knows his craft and bonus he is actually funny. I have seen so many physio but so far he is the “BEST”!! . I highly recommend Moveo.
This clinic is top notch. I’ve had both RMT and physio treatments at this location. Rob (PT) is very thorough, friendly, knowledgeable, and has a great sense of humor (the accent is dodgy 😉 ! Megan (RMT) is fabulous – her technique is great and she has a very caring approach. The receptionist, Georgina, is lovely,…very friendly and welcoming. The clinic is bright, clean, and has top of the line equipment. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for treatments.
Excellent clinic. From the moment you walk in, to the moment you step out the door you will have nothing but a positive experience. My daughter and I see Richard one of the RMT’s and he is incredible. Extremely knowledgeable in way of injury rehabilitation! I have recommended many people to Richard and they have all had great experiences.
I have been fortunate enough to be receiving well needed Physio treatments from Rob. He is totally amazing, very knowledgeable, up on all the latest techniques, and professional to name a few attributes. Another employee with a great sense of humour!! Rob incorporates a variety of treatments that are specifically geared to whatever is needed to enhance one’s healing.
PT Rob is great! He definitely knows his craft. Highly recommended.
I’ve been seeing Dr Turner for years and there isn’t anyone else I would trust more with my health. This is a fantastic facility with very helpful front end staff that.
Physiotherapist Rob is amazing. He accurately assessed my injury & PT need, then developed a successful plan that led to a full recovery.
