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!

If you’re looking for an extremely knowledgeable therapist who is so attentive and customizes every detail of your therapy/training to your unique needs, look no further than Dr. Gayed. To give him 5 stars is an understatement.

Dr. Gayed is extremely knowledgeable and personable. As a physical therapist myself, I went to Dr. Gayed knowing I would receive excellent care. He took the time to listen to what was going on, was able to pinpoint and treat the issue, and I walked out feeling great! I would highly recommend Dr. Gayed to anybody needing Physical Therapy. I returned to Gayed for another issue and was once again so extremely happy with his. Highly highly recommend.

I had my first session at Rise yesterday and I was very impressed with Jonathon’s level of understanding and knowledge of my areas of concern. I have been to a few other physical therapy clinics in the past, but never felt any progression with my pain. One session with Jonathon was more rewarding than countless at other clinics. I highly recommend Rise and will certainly be back for any issue that arises in the future.

I am incredibly grateful for the exceptional care I received, my knee problems have significantly improved. I highly recommend for anyone seeking effective physical therapy.

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.
