Just finished up 8 weeks at the Lee Highway office. Lauren, the DPT, and Adam, the trainer, teamed up for a thoughtful and successful program. Together, they made a huge difference in my well-being! I have tried PT before and this was more hands on and I got better results. I thought Lauren was really observant, and always organized with a plan. She cared about getting me well and succeeded! Adam always provided excellent support, expertise and encouragement — he has a special instinct and gift to help people.

I’m Truly baffled by all the stellar reviews on this page! sorry but according to my experience with jackson clinics, these must be friends or paid reviewers, or simply people who lucked out with Jackson clinics lee Hwy team! My son was there for many physical therapy cessions without any improvement, His therapist was not knowledgeable enough to direct the exercises based on diagnosis , Even does not follow the doctors prescriptions!!! Really you will lose your time if you select Jackson clinic for physical therapy improvements, .I would give negative 5 if there were. Horrible billing practices! Over billing for the insurances, very rude team, Totally misleading!
