Testimonials

Steven was the difference maker in my post surgical recovery (total hip replacement). He is so friendly and easy going and was able to address all my questions and concerns with a confidence from having seen and worked with so many patients. Moreover, he personalized my recovery plan and adapted the plan to my changing abilities. I would recommend him without any hesitation or reservation. He will be the difference maker for you too!

Harry

This year my knee failed me and I suddenly couldn’t walk – let alone swing dance, my favorite pastime. With Steven, I received custom, 1-on-1 care. Massage, strength building exercises, dance drills, empathy, humor, optimism, and total support of my lifestyle goals – Steven gave me everything I needed well beyond my expectations. Now I am dancing again armed with the self care skills I need to stay mobile. Go see Steven Lavender! He is a rare breed and has my highest recommendation.

Sarah

I’m currently working with Steven to rehabilitate an ankle injury that’s complicated by MS spasticity issues, and to rehab several other MS issues in order to improve my ability to walk safely. He’s got expert knowledge about my particular issues as well as a delightful and encouraging disposition. I have already made significant progress in just the first few weeks that I’ve been working with him, and I’m definitely excited to see how much more I can improve over the next several months.

Lisa

Steven is extremely well-versed in his field. He is caring, wickedly funny, answers questions thoroughly, and addresses concerns immediately. He has used techniques that are new to me despite the fact that I’ve had many years of physical therapy. I have already seen improvement, even though we’ve been working together only a few weeks.

Pat

I have been to many physical therapists. It is such a relief to finally find a one like Steven Lavender. No-one in the past has been able to explain in such caring detail what my physical problems are until I started going to him. Steven is the first therapist to spend the entire time working on my neck and back with amazing results. Not only that, he has helped me understand how to handle my issues at home without overburdening me with cumbersome routines. I am lucky to have found him.

Jo

Steve Lavender has incredible insight, and is a truly gifted PT. He takes the time,and has the ability to understand how to move things forward in a positive way. He has already made a big difference for me in dealing with chronic problems in terms of gait and more. And I always leave smiling.
