What People Are Saying:
"Brown Rogers is a business that truly focuses on quality of care and well being of patients and staff members. The therapists at Brown Rogers were some of the most talented individuals I have ever seen work, a rare compilation of talent and skill. They are kind and compassionate while possessing and understanding of the human body that is well beyond the average scope, and are able to provide true 1 one 1 care."
RH, Travelling PT, DPT, OCS
"The staff is amazing! I'm extremely inquisitive and they were very patient."
"Brown Rogers was recommended to me by a family member, and when I told my doctor, he said I had made an excellent choice. I found this to be absolutely right. I was fortunate to have Marieke for my therapist. Her expertise and encouragement was largely responsible for my progress. She realized that my age contributed to my having to rest, but we always had a full workout. Each time I left tired and felt it was worth my effort."
"Amber showed me exercises I could do at home. She was organized. Care, Knowledge and Professionalism is what you will find at Brown -Rogers!"
"Professional services and care. After two visits, the treatments are working."
"Brown Rogers has been instrumental in identifying and treating pain I have experienced for the past 10 months. I had already gotten an MRI, went to a different PT clinic, saw an orthopedist, and a chiropractor. My pain was so intense I was having trouble walking, Angelle identified and treated a leg length inequity, with an inexpensive solution: a heel lift. In 2 visits I was better. I cannot thank Brown Rogers enough for their outstanding care! I recommend them highly!"
"Andrew is so kind and patient with his patients. I’ve watched him work with individuals from a distance while doing my exercises. He walks and talks, helps and aids all that he is involved with, explaining and always giving great positive assurance and comfort. This is a great place to come and get healed and move with greater mobility. I would definitely recommend BR for healing."
"Therapy is not something that we can do alone. It takes the guidance and skill of dedicated staff and a caring environment. Justin and Marieke gave me that. Thanks again for being there when I needed help. I wish all of you well and will not hesitate to recommend Brown Rogers to anyone in need." J. B.
"Y’all are awesome. Change Nothing. Thank you, Kristen!"
""Your staff is so professional at the Airline office, and I will miss them when my sessions come to an end!"
"My pain has minimized a lot and it's because of the time, patience, and helpfulness Jaime gives me on each visit."
"Claire is so committed to helping patients. Her energy is contagious!"
"I appreciate all the hard work you have done. For the first time I understand what a good therapist does, and there may be some light at the end of the tunnel."
"Kristen, Thank you for helping me with the water exercises. I saw my physician last week and she feels my knee and back are much improved."
"I can't thank you enough for helping me with my shoulder pain. Your compassion, professionalism and genuine concern was greatly comforting!"
"Jaime is great- actually everyone I encounter is awesome!!"
The knowledge, compassion , and kindness of the staff will be the main determining factor for recommending B-R. However, the cleanliness and order of the facility also play a big part of my satisfaction and a 10 rating."
