I cannot say enough positive things about Luke Carlson and his staff. They are friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and professional. From my first visit to my last it was obvious that Luke and his staff were committed to getting me the PT I needed to get back to a normal routine. He definitely cares about his patients and their well being. I would highly recommend Luke Carlson.

This is a down to earth and friendly environment. The staff is inviting when you walk right in the door and very caring about your needs. My experience in the past with physical therapy places this one is one of the best in my books. I had surgery about a year ago was very scared to go to physical therapy because of my past experience. When I started to go to Luke Carlson I knew this was the right place for me! 100 percent recommend “Luke Carlson Physical Therapy”! You will not be disappointed!

I cannot sing high enough praises of Luke Carlson! I have been to many different doctors throughout the last 10 years for neck, shoulder, and back problems. Dr. Luke has helped me the most. He takes his time, is unbelievably knowledgeable, and is an expert in his field. He has alleviated so much of the chronic pain I have been suffering. He also has educated me thoroughly on the problems I have, the causes, and how to treat them at home in addition to seeing him. He is the BEST!! :)

I had a condition that was very unique. After consulting with my physician it was determined that I needed physical therapy to help resolve my condition. After coming here a few months my condition has improved and outlook is bright. Staff are great to work with and treat you with respect and compassion when working with you. Keep it up!

This place is not like any other. The staff is so friendly and down to earth. They truly care for you and your needs. I have been coming here for a while now because I had to get surgery. When I first started I felt like it would be awkward because I didn't know any of them. But it was truly the complete opposite. They treated me like I was apart of them and made me feel very welcome. If you are thinking of Physical Therapy, come to Luke['s! You won't be disappointed.

My wife has worked in the physical therapy industry for over 15 years, so I have had lots of experience with many therapists. I can't say enough about Luke and his staff. Their approach to patient care is unlike anything I have ever experienced at any other clinic. You can tell they truly love what they do and that they genuinely enjoy working with each other. They not only treat your condition, but they also educate you, and make it fun. You are family when you are there. First class clinic!

Luke started off well with me, but as time went on he was very tired and rude. I was always required to wait long before my appointment and it was very inconvenient. His workers seemed rude and it didnt seem like they enjoyed working there.
