Dont wait for the right opportunity

Martha – “Encore was A-MAZ-ING!”

A-MAZ-ING! copy

“A-MAZ-ING!” That’s how Martha describes her experience at Encore Rehabilitation-Center Point!

Encore Rehab Physical Therapist Mallory Riggs is passionate and knowledgeable. She really cares for her patients, not only how they are doing with their rehab but also how they are feeling. She just makes you feel special. Mallory works well with all ages of patients and really develops a rapport with everyone-teenagers, middle-aged, and the elderly. I’ve told my doctor how amazing Mallory is! All of the staff are wonderful, Mallory, Katie, Sanquenetta, and Spencer.

I’ve had physical therapy in other places but this experience with Mallory and the staff at Encore has been the best rehab experience ever!”

Martha is currently participating in the Wellness Program at Encore Rehabilitation-Center Point after being discharged from physical therapy. “Now that I’m in the Wellness Program, Mallory continues to look out for my best interest and monitors me to make sure I’m doing my exercises correctly. She makes it fun which makes me want to do the program. Mallory has also helped me to set-up a written exercise schedule on the calendar so that I will stay better committed to my wellness plan.”

When you find someone this good, you want everyone to know. You need 1,000 of Mallory!

Thank you, Martha, for your kinds words. We are glad that you chose Encore Rehabilitation-Center Point!
