New Orleans Lakefront

PHYSICAL THERAPY New Orleans Lakefront, LA

History:

We opened our New Orleans Lakefront / Gentilly location in 2014 due to a high demand for quality physical therapy services in this area. At least 7 of our Physical Therapists have worked in this clinic, usually filling in for when the main Physical Therapists are on vacation.

So often we hear from our Physical Therapists that the patients are amazing in this clinic. They are a diverse group and are so kind, polite and have a wonderful, happy approach to life.

The main focus of our approach in this location is our one-on-one care. We have quickly become known amongst the physicians in New Orleans for our caring approach and the time we spend with each of our patients. Our patients have a great time when they come to physical therapy in Lakefront / Gentilly, largely because of the joie de vie that our staff promotes.
