Congratulations to Kirby Barkley for being chosen as the Long Beach Clinic Patient of the Month! Kirby is a teacher’s assistant for the special education department at Quarles Elementary School. He came to Encore after he tore his ACL a couple months ago and has been in rehab at for 3 months now. Kirby enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, basketball, and paddle-boarding.
When asked why he chose Encore for his physical therapy provider he said, “Everyone I asked said Karen Merkle was the best PT there has ever been. I want to get back to 110%.” Kirby is making great progress in his therapy and will be 110% in no time!
