“I would like to take this opportunity to make known my utmost satisfaction with the professional help and care of Mr. Gregory Specht and his staff in my recovery process after surgery for spinal stenosis. Every exercise to be performed was fully explained to me as to what and why it was being prescribed and what results I could expect. I would not hesitate to recommend Specht Physical Therapy to anyone.”
