What People Say About Dr. Julianne Smith, DPT

I went to Dr. J after suffering from some persistent neck problems. By the time I got to her, I couldn't turn my next left very far. From my first evaluation, she sat with me and empathized with my pain, and most importantly, really helped me understand the root of my problem. She's clearly incredibly knowledgeable, and I instantly felt like my issue would be resolved. I'm a fairly active 40 year old mom and I plan on being active for a long time - the best part of working with Dr. J is that she both "fixed" me in the short term but also set me up to think about my body in the long term. You'll leave your appointment feeling so much better about your body/problem, and so grateful to have been in her presence. After years of going to various chiropractors and PTs, Dr. J has my business for life. Get an appointment with her ASAP - don't wait a minute longer!

I was referred to Dr. Julianne Smith due to balance and gait issues. During my evaluation appointment with Julianne, she was able to identify conditions that were affecting my balance and gait. She very clearly explained how these conditions all worked (or in my case were not working) together to achieve balance. Through exercise and core strengthening, as well as physical massage, Julianne helped me a great deal. Many of my issues stem from arthritis and stenosis in my neck. She taught me that, although PT could not eliminate my conditions, there are many daily stretches and exercises I can do to alleviate my pain. I also needed to change my sleeping position, because stomach sleeping is not great for my neck. Julianne was very patient with me as I tried to find the "right" pillow and leg wedge to accomplish comfortable sleep. Over a 3 week period, I brought in many possible options until we found the right one for me. I now sleep well and usually wake up pain free! She's great!!

I cannot imagine seeing another PT after working with Julianne! I saw her for 4 months to treat my chronic lower back injury and left feeling strong and confident, knowing that I am prepared to handle any future pain reoccurrences. She is a compassionate person who actively listens and confidently address her patients’ needs. Not only is Julianne extremely knowledgeable about the human body and how to treat it, but her personal experiences with injuries gifts her the ability to relate to her patients and create their best treatment plan. Her manual soft tissue therapy has saved my life on many days where my muscles were spasming and I was in horrible discomfort! I truly could not be more grateful for her support and encouragement throughout this process and recommend her to anybody in the area in search of an outstanding PT.

Julianne is an amazing Physical Therapist and an expert in ACL rehab/recovery. I worked with her for post-op rehab as well as Sportsmetrics™ return-to-sport training and could not be happier with the results. Julianne is extremely knowledgable and very personable - she cares for the whole patient, not just the specific injury that they’re in for. Expect a warm greeting when you walk in and trust that she’ll remember how your last session went and what you talked about. She adapts each session to where you’re at and what your needs are for that day. Her explanations and reasoning are clear and informative and the training is tailored to your sport/lifestyle specific needs. With her help I’m stronger than I was before my injury, more knowledgable on how to prevent re-injury, and confident in my ability to return to normal activity. I cannot recommend her enough. Thanks for getting me back to the Good Life, Julianne!

Only 500 characters huh, that will be tough. Julianne is THE BEST in every way of PT. From the very first to the very last visit. She studies up on you & your reports. She's very compassionate, listens & encourages. She would always tell me what she was doing, what it does, & why she was working on it. Her knowledge of the human body & how it works is incredible! I am back and feeling great! She has a rare gift and is a rare gift! I will definitely recommend & be a regular of Dr. Julianne's.

Dr. Smith is a level above. I’ve never encountered such a knowledgeable medical professional. Her demeanor is caring and compassionate. Her treatment determines the real root cause. She’s passionate about movement. As a professional athlete I wouldn’t go anywhere else. A level above...

Julianne is hands-down the best therapist I have ever had. She is always extremely pleasant to talk to and work with. She took my interests of yoga and hiking and applied those to the exercises she came up with, combining conventional practice that she knows very well with her own sort of holistic twist that helped me an insane amount. My case was very unique and potential results unknown, but I am incredibly happy with the amount of healing she helped me to accomplish. She has a true gift.

Dr. Smith is a wonderful physical therapist. It is evident that she is passionate about her work and that comes through in the quality of care and time she spends with her patients. I would recommend her to anyone needing a physical therapist. She is quite simply amazing! She responded to my particular needs. My case was probably an average case but she treated me like I was an Olympic athlete that is she gave me excellent care and the kind of attention you get from high level professionals.

I've had 5 joint replacement surgeries in 10 yrs and Julianne Smith is the best therapist I've ever had! Would follow her to the ends of the earth because she listens , is highly knowledgeable in her field, and is very caring. She's all about making you the best you, you can be! I trust her knowledge base and training.. but she goes beyond that. She's about what's best for u and has the best healing hands I've ever been around! She's a gift! Always greets u with a smile and confidence!

Shes more then a physical therapist. Her knowledge of the human body is nothing short amazing.She truly cares about each individual patient.Now combine those attributes in a physical therapist an you'll find that you the patient can achieve more then just positive results in your recovery.I suffered a back/neck injury. Her manual therapy along with her guidence in gym has given me the tools needed in establishing a strong foundation. Thus giving me the best possible chance in a positive recovery

I was referred to Dr. Smith in 2013 after surgery and was immediately impressed with her talents. First, in her ability to quickly and effectively diagnose my Physical Therapy treatment plan through a series of questions and answers which were presented in a clear, systematic format. Second, through her high skill level in executing my Therapy program. She not only repaired the physical component, but her unusual likability factor and down to earth nature made for for an enjoyable experience.
