Patient Comments (12)
John is funny, pleasant, and extremely enthusiastic about his patients. I spent quite a bit of time working with John, and every visit was an enjoyable highlight of my week. Not only did my condition improve considerably, I felt at ease coming to Recovery PT for treatment. I certainly had a complicated diagnosis, but John persisted and worked with me until we found how to best address my pain. I highly recommend him for PT and will really miss working with him!
In just four sessions with John, I have already seen tremendous improvement. He takes the time to explain why you are doing the exercises, the anatomy and physiology behind it. Seems to genuinely care. Highly recommended.
After going to two different physical therapists that were causing my minor injury to get worse, John immediately put me on the right track and within a few weeks, I saw a vast improvement.
Great experience. Great communication. Always available to answer my questions.
I came in to see John after several years of moderate but sustained knee pain, caused by plica buildup. John taught me, on my first visit, how this pain came to be, how it developed, and precisely which muscles were weakened as a result. He also told me exactly what he was going to do to resolve my problem and how long it was going to take. Throughout my treatment, John sustained a very professional level of confidence, all while sporting a humorous and cheerful attitude....
I walked in with a little pain. The exercise John had me do worked wonders. He showed me how to use the correct muscles and it made a big difference. Big Difference!
John gave me the confidence that my injury would be healed with therapy and he helped me achieve that goal, with the precision care.
Mel guided me through healing and strengthening. He gave me a clear framework and helped me understand how to pace myself after surgery as well as necessary, explicit instructions for exercises.
He's great! Very informative, very friendly, very thorough.
Since I started coming to RTP, I have made tremendous gains thanks to John Wilbert

John is compassionate, professional and extremely knowledgable regarding a multitude of back shoulder and neck injuries. I highly recommend him as he is thoughtful and personable as well.
