Folsom

PHYSICAL THERAPY Folsom, LA

As of 2018, we have been voted Northshore’s Best for 6 years!!

 

History:

Our Folsom clinic was our second location, after Covington, opening up our doors in 2003. Prior to that we found that patients were driving the 30 minutes from Folsom to our Covington location. We wanted to make it easier for people in the City of Folsom to have access to top quality care. Since opening in Folsom we have since expanded into a larger space, ensuring plenty of room to take care of our neighbors.

The main focus of our approach in Folsom is our one-on-one care. Jerome has been our Clinic Director in Folsom for over 10 years. He has become known in the City of Folsom for his willingness to spend as long as is necessary to educate his patients and to provide the care that they need to reach their health potential.

Jerome has been a nationally ranked Kickboxer, but you wouldn’t know it. His manner is gentle and kind and clearly just cares about helping everyone he meets. He is known by physicians throughout Folsom and Covington and is frequently referred to by these physicians for his expert, caring physical therapy.
