I’ve been coming to APT for several years.  I used them for my 3 major surgeries.  My care has been excellent.  The diversity of things they have available to help rehab people is incredible, especially the Alter G.  The people here are very friendly.  They are all excellent in their jobs, and that’s why I continue coming here and relying on APT.
