Very helpful and effective!
I consulted John regarding the chronic knee problems that I’d been having. I had consulted multiple physiotherapists previously, but none of them were able to identify the multiple causes behind my knee issue, including the structural problems, or articulate it in a way that made sense. John’s feedback on the ultimate root causes and recommendations on what I can do the improve my situation were helpful, direct and on point. Thank you John!

Over the past six months, I have been undergoing treatment for Tennis elbow. It didn't help at all. John Steven was referred to me by one of my friends. Without hesitation, he set up a video call since I live out of state, then he offered to provide service even on weekends. John was an amazing help and support to me during my stay. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Rehab specialists to anyone with joint or muscle pain. John explained everything very well and helped me to do the exercises at home. Everyone at Rehab specialists is very kind and willing to help.

I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy in Oct. I did the 5 days of medicine that the hospital recommended. That did nothing and John got me in ASAP and after a few treatments with him and the amazing staff I am back to 100%. My Dr. did not recommend physical therapy but it works! So thank you again John and Alicia!!

A massive thank you to John Stephen for all his amazing works .. We have been using various therapies from him for the past 4 years . I should say he got some magic in his hands that I got relieved of my acute shoulder and neck pain after undergoing his therapy ..Also I can’t thank him enough for the wonderful therapy he did to cure my wife’s vertigo too . He is very professional and friendly .. I would strongly recommend him for any form of Physical Therapy.

This is the greatest place especially with joint and muscle pain from injury or aging!!!! I have seen John and worked with many in his office including Joe and Lauren this time around. They have helped me become absolutely pain free after several week of their therapy and home exercises. They are just very nice people who pay close attention to detail and are willing to work with each complaint as it arises through each session. I believe they are southwest Michigan's BEST PHYSICAL THERAPY CENTER without a shadow of a doubt.

Dr. Stephen was recommended to me by several people who had come down with Bells Palsy such as myself. What John did to get me back to a normal life in such a short period of time was totally unbelievable! Johns compassion to get me in to be seen as quick as possible will always be appreciated and this gave me the opportunity to start the healing process immediately. Thank you John for not sugar coating things with my diagnosis and for pushing me to make a full recovery within 2 1/2 months!

Dr Stephen was very knowledgeable promising me from the beginning that if he couldn't help my problem he would tell me and not waste my time.. I went to him for help with Trigeminal Neuralgia but from the moment he saw me he knew that I had a long standing issue with my neck and was able to greatly improve that problem along with the Trigeminal pain.

John is extremely thorough and focused on what he does. He takes the time to understand your daily routine and generates a rehab plan based on that. I went in with a back injury that was affecting my work and daily grind. Unfortunately I was unable to ease off work during this period, but John and his team put a plan together to not only get me back on track but also ease my existing discomfort. I feel significantly better and a whole lot of credit goes to John and his team.

Rehab Specialists exceeded my expectations for: *a reduction in pain due to several spinal conditions * the attention given to a changing pain intensity as well as location-- they do not treat from a rigid protocol, rather a flexible one ( unlike a previous and lengthy treatment routine I experienced at another p.t. venue) * The whole staff was positive, well informed and handled my own suggested changes thoughtfully and professionally. * I am so happy to have found Rehab Specialists !

I was referred to Dr. Stephen by another excellent pt who had treated me for persistent pain in the hip area and down my leg. His reason for referral was that Dr. Stephen could take it further than he had. He was correct in that assessment. After 13 sessions I am in much better shape. I still experience some pain at times, but I now have a good understanding of how to alleviate it. Dr. Stephen has left me in good shape, and I know that I can call upon him again if I need to.

I was referred to John by my internist to address a shoulder impingement. The condition had been present for about two years. After the second visit, I noticed significant improvement. John focused on having me utilize optimum posture and shoulder strengthening exercises to stabilize the joint. After 8 visits, my issue had been resolved and I am now pain free. Better yet, I know what to do to prevent reoccurrence! John and his team are excellent practitioners.

I have had bells palsy twice affecting both sides of my face. This was very devastating and Dr. Stepens gave me hope. He accomodated my work schedule for appointments. With his knowledge, experience and a lot of hard work I can wear contacts in both eyes and have my smile back. I highly recommend him if you know anyone who is affected with bells palsy.

If you are having any muscular issues, Dr. Stephen is the person to see. I'm in better condition than before my injury! The expertise, time and genuine care to get you back to being your best is something you don't see very often. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Stephen or the rest of the staff at Rehab Associates.

Dr. Stephen provided excellent professional, individualized attention while treating my condition. He carefully assessed and listened to my description of symptoms. His expertise, knowledge, and treatment assisted greatly in my recovery. Throughout treatment, Dr. Stephen explained the how and why for methods of treatment. He provided me with informational sheets that visually demonstrated homework exercises. As treatment concluded, Dr. Stephen coached me on continuing the exercises.
