Alex is the best! I'm certain my recovery from a knee transplant has been great because of this massage techniques and physical therapy. I attended sessions every week for 6-9 months, and my knee is doing great. He also helped with a torn tendon in my ankle. I'm having the other knee fixed surgically in February, and I will be going back to Atlas for post-surgical therapy.

This was the second time I used Dr. Lanton's PT services (the first was back in 2013 following back surgery). As before, Alex and the team at Atlas were very professional and friendly and provided me with excellent support and advice, helping me quickly achieve my rehab goals. They were great in explaining both my medical condition, as well as the best exercises, etc. I would highly recommend both Dr. Lanton and Atlas Physical Therapy.

Alex was personally invested in me as his patient. He talked to me and listened to my concerns and did not talk to me from behind a lap top. Alex pushed me, encouraged me, emotionally supported me in my recovery and celebrated with me small steps so i was able to make bigger steps! Alex earned my confidence to the point I never doubted his treatement. I highly recommend his professionalism, expertise and compassion as a therapist!

Best physio! I had issues with my knee for ages- Alex was the only one able to solve them! Then I had a dislocated elbow and he did all the rehab for it - didnt need surgery and I bet is because I saw him first.. Have had family come over to see Alex because he is such an amazing physio - the best!

Alex is a phenomenal physical therapist with a vast wealth of knowledge on how to effectively & efficiently treat countless types of injuries ? including those nagging aches & pains that have bothered you for years. Alex is a consummate professional, extremely courteous and very friendly ? he?s what one calls ?good people?. I worked w/ Alex for over 3-4 months, addressing a number of interrelated injuries that I couldn't seem to work out on my own. I highly recommend Alex for all your PT needs.
