Betty Brown of Fayette shares her rehab experience at Encore Rehabilitation-Fayette:
In February 2017, I came to Encore Rehabilitation for physical therapy on my right shoulder after a rotator cuff repair. In June 2018, I had shoulder replacement and I knew where I was going for physical therapy. My surgeon agreed and highly recommended Encore! The staff’s knowledge and caring shines in all areas of your therapy. I feel welcome when I enter the door. I’m always greeted with warm smiles! I feel the pain of therapy is bearable due to the staff’s caring attitudes. I know I’m in the hands of the best! It’s calming to have faith in the ones caring for you during your therapy. I’m thankful and blessed by the Fayette Encore Rehabilitation Staff. I felt like Encore was the place for my physical therapy. I LOVE my Encore Staff!“
