"Desert institute of PT is awesome. They listen to your needs and provide a treatment plan to quickly treat your needs. Dave is also terrific- he has an incredible understanding of how the body works and what causes pain. His advice went beyond my specific injury and it will certainly help me prevent injuries in the future. 5 stars!"

"DIPT deserves a ten star rating. From start to finish, beginning with Judie at the front desk who is an absolutely master at scheduling your appointment at DIPT, to Dave, who is the very best physical therapist that I have ever worked with, to Joey, who is the master at getting you to stretch, work and build the area that needs work, everyone at DIPT is world-class. Whether you need to rebuild an area from a work, sports, or long-term injury, DIPT is the first and only physical therapy facility to go to. I recommend DIPT without question."

"When I started physical therapy here at the DIPT I could barely walk. I hobbled about like a pirate with a peg leg. Now I am able to walk in a fluid motion without much pain or discomfort. After each surgery I could rely on the staff here to get me back on my feet and walking around. I couldn't be happier with my experience here at the DIPT. I owe it to Dave and Joey for my improvements, it wouldn't be possible without them."
Alexander J from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
May 31, 2017
"Five stars are not enough for Rob and staff at DIPT. I was referred to Rob for hip and gluteal pain .With Rob's expertise, I have gained strength, ease of the pain and a greater understanding of how to manage on my own. He is extremely knowledge , easy to work with and has a gift in his work. I highly recommend Rob and his staff for any type of rehab,."
Ruthann H from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"Before starting my PT, I was experiencing extreme tightness & tension in the muscles in my neck, shoulders and upper back. I had continuous pain and discomfort throughout the day from my neck to my lower spine. Dave was thoughtful and professional in assessing my current status and determining the course of treatment. Everyone I worked with at DIPT was friendly, encouraging and helpful. My improvement was significant! Joey provided copies of all my exercises so I can maintain my health. I will miss coming here!!"

"This was an excellent experience for me. I was treated for some minor shoulder pain that because of my profession I wanted to make sure did not get worse. Dave treated me for approximately two and half months while Joey and Meagan ran me through my exercises. They were all clear and concise with their direction, making it easy to learn and perform the movements.Everyone was extremely personable and the time flew by. One day I woke up without the shoulder pain and was able to start doing my normal full workouts at my gym. On my last day Dave and Joey discussed the various exercises again as I was doing them, to make sure I continued to do them right when I was doing them at my gym. They then gave me a list of the exercises with a pictures, written description of movements, and weight to use. If I every need physical therapy again this will be my first call. Thank you to all the staff."

"The DIPT was very involved with my lower back injury and helped me heal it 100%. They are always on time and very helpful and knowledgeable. The staff is excellent and very nice and they make therapy a very enjoyable experience, to which I would recommend the DIPT to anyone seeking a pain free life!"
Kellen G from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Apr 24, 2017
"I came to DIPT with a two year old shoulder injury that I had just been "dealing with." However, the birth of my daughter made me realize that this was something I need to take care of so I could pick her up without pain. I also wanted to get back to my 5 day a week hot yoga classes! Regina was amazing. I had been to another PT, but Regina used techniques that I had never experienced before. I left my appointments with immediate relief of my symptoms. She was eager to get me moving in the direction of my goal. Well, being a new mom, going back to exercising I accumulated a couple more minor injuries to my knee and ankle and Regina treated those, too. It has been about 6 weeks and I am completely pain free and able to lift my baby no problem. I am able to return to the things I love thanks to Regina. I highly recommend her to anyone, she is extremely knowledgeable and effective!"
Sarah T from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"In the past 8 months Rob, Regina, Dave, Judy, Karen, Diana, and the Techs, Joey & Mitch have redefined Physical Therapy for me. Regina provided dynamic healing for my torn rotator cuff (cuff gone, replacement surgery recommended). She created and implemented a plan of attack to strengthen and mobilize my shoulder muscles, which was tweaked with each session based upon my feedback, to expand the range of motion and flexibility. With her knowledge, encouragement, and gifted hands, the results were off the charts. My Mayo Clinic Ortho doctor was blown away. Likewise, when I tore my right hamstring last July, Rob & Dave implemented treatment to stabilize, repair, and strengthen the hamstring. Again, working with me, not on me, the results were fantastic. Through each experience the whole Team treated me as if I was their only patient, not only the physical therapy side, but also, the inner spiritual side which has a direct impact on healing our bodies. If you want a complete healing experience, throw away most of your pill bottles and check in with Rob and his team. Join the family!"

"After knee miniscus tear surgery, and a slow recovery, I was refered to DIPT by my yoga inst.- thank you Therese! From my initial call, Judy was so nice and welcoming on the phone setting up my appointments. My therapist, Rob was the best!! It was amazing how he could pin-point just what i needed to get back my knee strenght and range of motion. I was very comfortable with Mitch and Joey helping me with my exercises. They know what they are doing! I am so glad I came to DIPT, and will not hesitate to call if I need any other help. DIPT YOU ARE THE BEST!!"
Jaime H from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Jan 12, 2017
"This is my very first experience with physical therapy. I had never done it before and therefore have no frame of reference. That being said, I found that I was given a thorough interview and a thorough exam at my first appointment. I have not had an MRI, so I did not have specific knowledge of what my problem was. I was told that without that they can only make an educated guess as to what my situation was. They prescribed a regimin for me to follow and led me through each maneuver until I was accomplished at it. They watched to be sure that my stance was correct for each application. They recommended various procedures for me to follow after my sessions are over. Each session began with a thorough massage of the affected area along with strenghening movements. Isometric type of movements. I was also given laser therapy for the affected muscle. I can absolutely say that I have seen and felt improvement since my sessions began. I only wish I could continue longer to see what progress I might make. Thank you all for your professionalism and thoroughness."
David H from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Jan 04, 2017
"I had a very long road to recovery and Corrie took great care of me the whole time! She knew when to push things, when to help me recover and when to send me back to the doc. Mitch and Joey were always there with a smile to walk me through the exercises. So glad this is where my doctor sent me for PT!"
Mercedes C from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Dec 29, 2016
"Really benefited from PT sessions. Was able to improve from using a walker, to cane, to no help and even hopping between legs. PT team was fun to joke with which helped alot when dealing with some pain. Regina was great and same with Matt. They backed off the session difficulty appropriately after additional surgery. I've been able to see noticeable improvement after each session. I strongly recommend them."
Mark M from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Dec 27, 2016
"I chose to use DIPT after shoulder surgery since my wife had such a positive experience with them several years ago. It was a great decision. I spent nearly 9 months rehabbing my shoulder after surgery. Dave and Regina were my primary therapists, and Robb and Corrie helped out as well. The supporting techs, Joey and Mitch, were terrific. They maintain a comfortable, warm and supporting atmosphere. It would be my first choice should I need PT again, and strongly recommend them."
Baron G from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"My entire experience was great and my shoulder is really back to normal, or close to. Dave and the entire staff is very professional and provide a pleasant experience. Very knowledgeable. I had been to a different PT clinic and they were lacking in attention and methods. Here I was measured through my physical therapy and could feel but also see the results. I can not thank Dave enough as well as the assistants here. I will be back for sure if I need help again."
Carol C from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"I was requested to come here for physical therapy because of a sports related injury that occured at my college. All the physical therapist and other members of the staff here were very kind, friendly, and professional. They knew exactly what needed to be done to heal my injury, and got me back to the football field as fast as possible. Both Dave and Regina were helpful, loving, and understanding. I would definitely suggest others in need of physical therapy to come here and see any of the physical therapists. Loved the experience :)"

"Robb and the staff at DIPT are top notch. When I hobbled in post-knee-scope, I couldn't walk, straighten my knee or put any weight on it with confidence. Under DIPT's care, I'm good to go after 6 weeks! They take the time to understand your individual situation and explain everything about your plan and exercises in detail. Your sessions never feel rushed. I had to reschedule a couple appointments and wound-up having the opportunity to work with two of the other physical therapists, Dave and Regina. They are all great and bring their own unique experience to your care. The office staff is nice and always responds quickly. I wouldn't go anywhere else for PT, period. Thank you Robb and team!!!"
Bill C from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Oct 28, 2016
"Robb and his team at DIPT is hands down the best that Arizona has to offer for physical therapy. I would highly recommend them to anyone. I want to give a special thank you to Judi and the front office staff for their warm, kind, and wecolming attitude."

"This physical therapy experience was prescribed after having hip replacement surgery. I came here with more than hip issues to deal with, and Robb patiently guided, liistened, and encouraged me. The staff is helpful, watchful, and kind as well. I feel that the caring and skill helped me to regain so much of what I felt was lost, and I'd recommend DIPT as an excellent place to come for physical therapy."
Mary R from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Oct 21, 2016
"From my initial phone call to schedule, through every appointment my expeciance was great. Regina was my physical therapist. She listened to my complaints and frustrations with my knee pain follow a knee scope and second procedure. I previously went to two other locations that did "cookie cutter" physical therapy. It was a relief to find a physical therapist that listened to me, and treat my specific pain. Request Regina if you want physical therapy that is personalized to your specific need."
Janell F from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Oct 18, 2016
"Great and friendly staff and front office!! I was referred to DIPT by my worker's comp and was pleasently surprised to recieve such professional instruction and care. My primary therapists were Dave and Tanya with additional help from Matt and Joey for my exercise routine. After only a few visits I was seeing great strides in my shoulder's mobility and strength during a time when I had conceded healing would take another six months. What I loved specifically was the ability to discuss certain limitations with my primary therapists and they would focus on those areas and adapt my exercise routine to support. They genuinely listened to my concerns and encouraged me to reach my recovery goals at my own rate of healing. DIPT is a great place for physical injury recovery."
Tamera K from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"I was recently in a car accident where I was hit and spun around in the intersection. My hip was very sore and my lower back had a previous herniated disc from years ago. Desert Institute of Physical Therapy has fantastic people working for them. Judy in the front office is always on top of things greeting people. When I get to the therapists they always are very good asking how I am doing for the day and adjusting the exercises for me. It is very clean here as well. I am on my last day here and I feel a lot stronger in my lower back. They have given me copies of the routines I can do at home on my own and continue getting stronger."
April E from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"I injured my L leg playing too much tennis, pickleball and golf. (not 25 anymore!) I could hardly bend or walk on it. My ortho took xrays and mentioned a meniscus tear and strongly suggested physical therapy. I delayed it for several months, and still had a lot of pain, trouble walking for any length of time, or bending my leg. When I returned to AZ, I searched online for a top physical therapy facility and found The Desert Institute. How lucky was I!! Over a period of 10 sessions, I can walk normally, bend my leg, and can do things I haven't been able to do for many, many months. All thanks to my physical therapist Dave. Dave is very knowledgeable and was very patient as I asked many questions about what he was doing, why, and how this was helping me. Each week he listened to me and adjusted treatment which led me to feeling better each day. I also want to say how much assistants Mitch and Rob helped me by overseeing the exercises and making sure I was doing them right to achieve the results necessary. Judy at the front desk is wonderful. Everyone here is so pleasant, professional,and very knowledgeable. My experience has been exceptional! Thank you to everyone who helped me."
Susan B from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Sep 28, 2016
"Robb and crew are experienced, friendly and extremely compassionate. The first PT, of several that I tried, who would actually consider the connection of muscles and not zero in on one particular muscle and exclude the rest. I would highly recommend DIPT to those in need."
Lauren F from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Sep 08, 2016
"I came in to see Corrie with shoulder, neck and upper back pain and immobility. Within two weeks, she corrected the issue, guided me through excercises to strengthen the area of issue, got me back to feeling great and resuming all normal activities. Thanks! The treatment and guidance worked!"
Jan R from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Sep 08, 2016
"I was requested by my ortho doctor to use the physical therapist of the his medical office. They had a difficult time scheduling me in the times I was available with my work schedule. They also had scheduled me with several different therapists. I didn't like the idea, so I cancelled and searched for a therapist that was aligned with my types of activites and close to my work. I google searched and found DIPT, which was close to work. I read all of the reviews and bios and found what looked like a good match. My injury came from a wakeboarding accident and low and behold Rob at DIPT was at one time a PT for the ASU wakeboarding team! I decided to give them a call and they were able to schedule me that same morning for my evaluation. The entire team was great to work with. They explained everything that they were doing and were all very personable. After just 6 weeks I'm healed up and ready to get back to the activities that I enjoy. If I ever need PT again I know exactly where to go! Thanks to the entire team at DIPT."

"If you are ever injured in a sport or exercise or have the unfortunate experience of getting an injury from an MVC, then the first place that should come to mind to have a successful recovery is Desert Institute of Physical Therapy. The staff is attentive and truly seem to exude knowledge, empathy and confidence that you will return to as much as your normal self again pre-injury. The variety of exercises and the equipment are up to standard or above. I would recommend this physical therapy clinic to anyone, and I wish them much success."

"I had a spinal injury and surgery. The DIPT employees were great from the front desk scheduling to Rob, my therapist and the assistants working with me twice a week. My work out consisted of manipulation and exercises. We started slowly and worked up to more intense weights and exercises. They helped with my mechanics of bending and standing. I highly recommend DIPT, my strengthand mobility has increased and is much better than before my injury."

I couldn't even sit up at work or in a car for more than 20 minutes without laying down from the pain. Just 3 months later I am can make it through all my daily tasks without pain and am back at the gym doing my normal routine again. The entire staff was beyond helpful and extremly knowledgable.

"I am a retired figure skater and have been coming here for all of my physical therapy and rehabilitation needs since 2002. The therapists, techs, and staff are competent and personable, and the facilities are clean and well maintained. When I was still in training, the staff were very willing to work with my coach to formulate custom workout routines that would assist my recovery not only in daily life but also within the specialised demands of my sport. I have never failed to see improvements in pain and function for all of my (many) sports- and surgery-related injuries, and the staff at the front desk makes schedulling appointments and moving them around to fit my volatile schedule easy and hassle free. I would recommend the DiPT to anyone from professional athletes to laypeople seeking to receive quality physical therapy threatments."
Rachel Y from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"This is the best physical therapy clinic and staff around. They gave me plenty of attention and care for my injury. I made the switch from another physical therapy clinic after 6 months of little progress and after 2 months here, my arm is 10X better than it has ever been. This is the place to go for Physical Therapy. The staff and results are amazing!"

"I started with a torn calf muscle and over about 2 1/2 months they were able to fix it completely. Also, I became a lot stronger through core building exercises that hopefully will keep me healthy. I have a core group of exercises and stretches to keep doing to continue on getting stronger and healthier."

"Corrie changed my life! Seriously, I had total knee replacement on aqn already weak knee, challenges created by previous knee surgeries traumatized me. Corrie was patient, encouraging and so knowlegable, I really looked forward to my therapy sessions with her "magic fingers" and compassion, she gave me the confidence to push myself to heal.I am not sure I would have had the results if I had not be referred to DIP. It's the BEST therapy clinic ever!!"

"After fracturing my right distal radius mountain biking, my surgeon suggested DIPT. They were able to see me right away. Cory evaluated me and set me on a physical therapy plan. I had my concerns that I would not regain full range of motion and functionality. Cory set me at ease and reminded me that this was a marathon and not a sprint. As time went on, my range of motion and functionality returned. Today was my my last therapy session and have regained 95% functionality and strength. I can not thank Cory, Ariana, Dave, Justin and Matt enough for all they have done for me over the past four and a half months. If I am ever in need of PT again, there is no other place I would rather be. I thank you all for your kindness and patience."

"I was in extreme pain with a Rotator cuff injury when I began working with Dave. He was fantastic, explained what I could expect from the treatment. I am very happy to say that I have improved tremendously and am able to do almost everything. I would refer anyone to come here as it is truly the best Physical Therapy Practice I have ever been to. The assistants are also extremely helpful and professional, so all in all my experience was excellent."

"I had no idea what pain free was until I came and spent time with Robb and team at DIPT, For years I thought living with back & neck pain was just part of getting old, just shared that at 53 I had my first pain free round of golf -- AND I killed it with my score! I would highly recommend to anyone looking to feel better AND avoid nagging injuries by learning preventative exercises -- God bless the foam roller plus "The Hammer" they use - you gotta try it!!"
Kevin M from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"It was a long slow recovery from shoulder surgery at age 66. Robb, Arianna, Justin and Matt were incredible with the best treatments and keeping me motivated. (Not to mention the most helpful and responsive front office manager in medicine - Judie!) I went from "off the charts" pain to tolerable and then functional very quickly. Their care allowed me to get off the shoulder sling at least two weeks earlier than expected. It took a lot of attention and support from the whole team to reach the point of full strength and no pain. They were there for me at all times. Always patient with my complaints and thorough in their explanations. I finished pain free, but more importantly with the specific instructions/knowledge to continue my progress and remain strong and pain free on my own. This is simply an amazing organization that truly cares."
Scott W from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"I came to Desert Institute of Physical Therapy to recover from a hip replacement and femur fracture. Dave helped me to regain the ability to walk unassisted and reduce the pain to almost nothing. I was grateful for his skills with many therapy techniques to achieve this result. Justin and Matt encouraged and challenged me during the exercises to help me progress. They also injected some fun into the process. All of the staff were also wonderful for their caring attitude, support, and encouragement."

Jill C from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Apr 27, 2016
"At the age of 29, I underwent a L4-5 fixation surgery. I came to Robb at DIPT after receiving treatments from 6 physical therapists during a 18-month period after surgery. I was frustrated with my recovery progress and talked to Robb about my desire to be pain free and be active in life again. For 3 months, Robb treated me with manual therapy and a exercise program. Today I'm feeling much more confident about my body and myself. I also have started having fun in life (hiking with friends; travelling with my husband in the country and internationally). I never thought I would be able to accomplish this much! DIPT is also fun. The staff sees me as a friend, but not a patient. They really cheered up my spirits! Since having surgery, if I could save myself more time, I would have chosen DIPT first."
Bonita C from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Apr 25, 2016
"I was diagnosed with severe shoulder and hip arthritis and therapy with Arianna has been fantastic. She is so skilled and it has helped enormously both in terms of my comfort and strength. I'll be really ready for surgery and am sure recovery will be quicker. Also, in addition to being very good at what they do, the team here is upbeat and fun. A great experience all around."

"I was in a bad bicycle accident with a car and fractured my left femur and required a titanium rod with 4 screws. I was having a lot of trouble getting into a physical therapy location near me and Judy, the receptionist, was very nice and helpful in working with my insurance while I was starting to go back to work and not having much free time to call my insurance myself. Once I got into Desert Institute I was evaluated the first day and given a few exercises to do on my own. I noticed that whenever I was feeling stiffness or soreness that if I did the exercise routine I would almost immediately loosen up and feel a lot better. I tried to keep consistent with my exercises at least once a day and I think that helped a lot during my early recovery. The staff helped treat me very well and do everything they could to help me get better ASAP. The stretches the therapist would give me were very good and would make me feel much better the rest of the day. I was lucky enough to have a very fast recovery with no more pain and about 90% mobility in my leg after only a few weeks. I am still hoping I can get my insurance to authorize more time for PT so that I can keep coming back because I really appreciate the specialized care that each of the therapists and assistants give me. Thank you DIPT team for everything and I hope you can help more people in need as well as you helped me. Take care, Andrew"

Having participated in college football and track, I was a bit nervous about how the staff would be able to accommodate the needs of my sport and my schedule.

"After irritating my hip during my first half marathon, I immediately needed help as I could barely walk without it hurting. I was recommended to DIPT by my doctor. During my time at Desert Institute of Physical Therapy, I was treated with great care. The staff and PT techs were so personable and made my time during therapy fun. I worked with Dave, Arianna and Matt who took great care of me. They worked my hip back to 100% and I am back running my normal routine. I would definitely recommend DIPT to anyone who needs physical therapy."
Michelle S from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"I came to DIPT before my total knee replacement in Dec, 2015 and came back 1 week after surgery. I couldn't be happier with my results. EVERYONE here is top notch! I worked with all of the PT staff (Rob was my main PT) and I would recommend any and all of them! Every time I came in (3 days a week for 11 weeks) I was treated very professionally and always felt so comfortable. This is the only PT facility I will come to and I highly recommend DIPT to anyone. I am back to hiking and regular exercise!"

"I had a torn hip labrum and my doctor referred me to DIPT . My hope was to avoid having injections and especially surgery. The exercises seemed so minimal compared to the discomfort I was experiencing. Midway through my therapy I had became challenged as well with vertigo. DIPT changed my therapy to help me with the vertigo. I have completed my sessions and absolutely no pain in my hip for a month, my neck is now relaxed and not only was the therapy a 5 star, the atmosphere at DIPT is terrific! It is uplifting, wonderfully kind."
Vivian M from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Mar 03, 2016
"I started coming to DIPT in October this year after I tore my left ACL playing sand volleyball. My experience with my surgery was not great so I was looking for a physical therapist that would compensate that experience and be able to rehabilitate me back to sports to get me back to where I was prior to my injury. I went to several consultations prior to finding DIPT and once I met with Rob, I scheduled my first appointment before I left their office. All the staff is amazing, they are personable and make the therapy fun which was important when you are struggling getting your strength back. I would and do recommend DIPT to my friends and family. I hope to never have to have surgery again, but if I do, I definitely know where I'm going."
Trista F from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy
Feb 24, 2016
"I came to DIPT after 80-90% tears in three ligaments on my ankle. My goal was to avoid surgery and progress to a point where I could run again and function at a high athletic level. Robb and the DIPT staff were on time, thorough, creative and dedicated to my recovery. Regardless of who I saw on a given day, they kept track of my progress and worked with me to accommodate specific physical work requirements I needed to fulfill that included heavy physical activity wearing upwards of 60+ lbs of equipment. In addition, DIPT coordinated with my orthopedic surgeon and explained their recovery process and philosophy in a way I could understand. I would recommend friends and colleagues to DIPT without hesitation."
Tyler B from Desert Institute of Physical Therapy

"Came here for rehab after knee replacement. Expected lots of pain to get back to normal. Much to my delight had NO PAIN (a little discomfort).

"Ruptured a disc in my back and had to have back surgery. Laser micro discetomy. Surgeon referred me to DIPT for therapy. Stayed with DIPT for over a year as I worked through recovery. They got me back in shape and back to playing hockey. They started off with the basics and worked in specific exercises to help me get back to game shape as I progressed. They are like a big family with great staff that care about your progress in and out of the clinic. I would recommend them to anyone who needs PT, especially if that person lives an active lifestyle and wants to get back to it quickly."

"I came to the staff at the Desert Institute of PT with a shoulder injury due to my participation in CrossFit. I met with Cee Cee to go through an evaluation and begin steps towards recovery. Everyone at DIPT was very professional and attentive to helping me get back in to the gym. Prior to coming to DIPT I had to shut down all overhead weighted exercises, push-ups and pull-ups. I am now back in the gym working at 90% and getting better every day. I highly recommend DIPT to any athlete looking to recover from an injury quickly and safely."

"I was referred to Robb by a family member. I never realized that there was a difference in physical therapists until I came to DIPT and worked with Robb. To me he is the most capable PT that I've ever worked with. He understood my problem, my procedure and my treatment in ways that went beyond what I expected. After my surgery I was scared and in pain but I found myself looking forward to my sessions with Robb because I knew that I would be cared for. Plus, they make it fun. I would recommend Robb and the staff at DIPT to anyone who is experiencing pain and wants to get well."

"I can honestly say that the The Desert Institute of Physical Therapy saved my life and my career. Back in April I sustained a serious lower back injury at work. The pain in my back and right leg was so intense that I couldn't walk or even stand up for that matter. I feel like I won the lottery on my 1st day there. I was up and walking in no time and spent the next 5 months getting back to where I could perform at work, etc. almost as I had before the injury. They are the best at what they do, are personable, professional and go way above and beyond the norm for their patients."

Surgery just wasn't in the cards for me at the time and after a couple weeks of therapy with DIPT I felt extremely good! I didn't even realize how much motion I had lost and discomfort I had until therapy helped bring it back to the level I was at. I can now go back to enjoying things like hiking and water sports without discomfort and pain thanks to DIPT! Very friendly and enjoyable staff!"

The team (Dave, Ariana, Jeff, Justin, Kayla and Callie) worked diligently to ensure I had the best care. They not only worked hard to heal me, but they gave me specific instructions on how to continue to heal myself beyond their care. I left pain free!! I am also back to my work out routine. The best part of PT is they are the most friendly caring staff from the front office to the PT floor."

I met with Cici who attentively listened to what happened to my thigh & thoroughly evaluated the problems I was having with bending my knee. Over the next 4 weeks I worked with Cici, Cayla, Arianna Dave, and Justin. They were the best to work with and I believe with their encouragement I was able to improve and 4 weeks later I'm completely back to normal. These people ROCK! I would definitely recommend DIPT!!"

"CeCe and her support employees are very good at what they do. I came in feeling very poorly, carrying all the stress across my shoulders and neck. They were able to get me back to my normal lifestyle."

"Everything at DIPT was top notch. From scheduling to direct therapy to the guidance of exercises, all of the staff was helpful, friendly and encouraging. This being my first surgery and physical therapy experience, I didn't know what was involved, but the care was more than I could have expected. Dave was a great therapist and pushed me to get back to being active after ACL surgery. I hope I don't need the services of DIPT again, but if I do, there is no doubt this is where I will be!"

"The experience has been great. I was experiencing a loss in mobility that hindered my golf game and even crossing my legs was difficult and painful. As I have progressed with therapy I have regained a great deal of mobility and I experience less pain golfing or doing other every day activities."

"My first experience with Robb was at wakeboarding nationals in Las Vegas. Out of the blue I asked if he would check out my shoulder, and he worked on it for maybe an hour and that night was the first time I could sleep on my side in months. After that I started visiting him at Desert Institute of Physical Therapy and really enjoyed the treatment I received from him and his staff. Both Robb and Ariana have been working on my shoulder and I have noticed a significant reduce in pain and increase in the range of motion. I would highly recommend DIPT to anyone I know!"

"I enjoyed everything about my experience with DIPT. I came in with severe pain that no one was able to diagnose, despite a laundry list of tests. Robb went above and beyond in his care and treatment, finding creative ways to approach my symptoms as we searched for the source of the pain. Every single member of the staff is warm, courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable. I would recommend their services to anyone in need of physical therapy, no matter one's age, fitness level, or injury."

"Living in two different states and dealing with more than one type of injury/surgeries over the years, I have experienced several different Physical Therapy professionals. Desert Institute of Physical Therapy and Robb Blackaby are without a doubt the best I have encountered. Robb has outstanding expertise and seems to have a better understanding of the body and what it takes to heal. All of his staff are excellent and a pleasure to work with. Robb treats each patient individually as opposed to some therapists which seems to treat all patients from a textbook no matter what your age."

"Highly re-commanded. my experience with Rob and his staff was awesome. I had a sever Herniated Disk. After my surgery, I couldn't move my body at all. Rob with his magical work and his assistants helped me to recover myself easily. now I can tell I am almost 100% recovered. everyone who works there, are friendly and professional. However I had to drive at least half an hour to get there, but If I need Physical Therapy again, I will choose them again."

"Robb and the staff at DIPT are excellent therapists. I felt that Robb truly understood my hip flexor pain and was able to treat it quickly and effectively with his healing hands and then my at home workouts. I would recommend DIPT to anyone that has an injury or something that just doesn't fell "quite right". I can now say with confidence that my hip flexor pain is gone and I'm back to all my regular activities! Thanks Robb and DIPT!"

After dealing with the pain for a couple months, I made the choice to see the experts at Desert Institute of Physical Therapy, and immediately started feeling relief for the first time since my injury. When my sessions were completed, the pain was completely alleviated and I was able to return to all my previous activities. Their professionalism and dedication to healing made the process fun and enjoyable. As an avid golfer and hockey player, it's a relief to know that DIPT is here to help."

"DIPT has been there to support me and my gymnast daughters for 6+ years - their amazing assessment skills and therapies have without a doubt helped through the healing process. Although we love the safe, clean environment and how punctual everyone is, it is the caring professionalism that brings us back. The entire staff from the front desk and the billing personnel, to the Physical Therapists and the trainers, makes us feel like family! My girls and I cannot recommend DIPT strong enough for anyone who needs a physical therapy with a lot of compassion!"

"I came to DIPT on crutches with torn knee ligaments. The folks started me on therapy and a fairly aggressive exercise program. I have not needed crutches since the first session. Over the course of several weeks, I became able to perform more and more activities with less discomfort. The therapists are personable and challenge you to progress. I have finished my two months' course of therapy and have avoided surgery. I am nearly 66 years old and have returned to building houses with Habitat for Humanity and two weekly exercise classes. DIPT can help you, too."

"As a 25 year old Amateur skateboarder, it was next to impossible trying to find a physical therapist or doctor who wasn't telling me to just quit on my favorite pastime. Finding the Desert Institute of Physical Therapy has been the blessing i've been looking for. Not only is the staff incredibly knowledgable, but they are also fully supportive of my goals, and expectations for my body. Not only have we worked to regain my strength after surgery, but also on every muscle that helps to make me go! I would suggest DIPT for anyone who wants to exceed their physical limitations."
