Success Stories

Maj. General Mark A. Clark (Ret.)

US Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command

“Rita is by far one of the best I have seen in this field. Very knowledgeable, far ahead of her peers in using leading edge technology for her patients, and is very through in analysis/diagnosis of the problem and always, always finds a solution that fits the need of the patient. Rita helped get me back and running in a short period of time (days) using creative methods instead of months that other PTs would have taken. She achieved great results working on our MARSOC operators allowing them to quickly get back into full operational status. Wish we had more PTs like Rita out there!”
