Our #1 growth factor at RISE is word of mouth. So don't just take our word for it, hear directly from our beloved patients!
Dr. Gayed is very knowledgeable, respectful, attentive, and friendly. It is obvious that he loves his work and cares about his patients. I have an extremely busy schedule with long hours of commute and travels and needed a relief from my persistent pain of many months. Jon was able to make me feel better from the first session. He takes the time to systematically diagnose the root problem of the pain by ruling out all other issues through several tests and techniques. He also spends time explaining diagnosis and treatment and works one-one with his patients to achieve the best outcomes. I highly recommend him. I have worked with several others. He is the best.
Jon is wonderful and knowledgeable! His 1 one 1 care and attention to detail for each patient helped me to get back on track! I recommend Jon to everyone!
Dr. Gayed is by far the best physical therapist I have seen. I have had chronic back pain for many years and he was able to relieve my pain in only 2 visits! He is very knowledgable in his field and takes the time to figure out where the pain is coming from and how to properly treat it. He also helps educate his patients on proper stretching techniques and ways to improve the problem at home. This has helped me tremendously with my back pain. It is also a very pleasant and comfortable atmosphere at Rise Rehabilitation. He's great- I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a PT!
Every doctor I went to recommended a knee replacement for me. This place brought my knee back to life with simple techniques. This young doctor is nothing short of brilliant.
Dr. Jonathan goes above and beyond. He found the root of my tricep pain and found other deficiencies in my upper body. I highly recommend bodybuilders, powerlifters, gym addicts to see him
