Patient Testimonials

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!

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. Gayed is an amazing PT! Very knowledgeable and is determined to figure out where the problem is coming from so he can come up with the best solution and plan to attack your problem areas. Highly highly recommended!

Dr Gayed provided me with exceptional, personalized care that was above and beyond any other PT experience I have had. He is an extremely knowledgeable clinician with great energy. As a physical therapist myself, I highly recommend a consult with Dr Gayed for any orthopedic needs you may have!

Just after one simple hour with Dr. Gayed, his skills in this industry were on full display. The diagnosis he gave was swift, but more importantly, correct. He did a fantastic job, and it would not make sense to seek my specific athletic medical attention from anywhere else!

I’ve been going to Dr Gayed for my chronic back pain. I’ve gone to multiple PTs before seeing him and tried some things on my own such as traction and a posture strap. His treatment program has by far given me the most relief and in the shortest number of visits! He will see you one-on-one for the entire treatment session which makes a big difference. Would highly recommend him!
