Welcome to Rehabilitation & Performance Center!
Letter from the owner
At Rehabilitation and Performance Center we are different…on purpose. A few years ago, a journalist was interviewing me about our practice. During the interview she asked me a common question but my answer surprised her. She asked me, “Why are you passionate about Physical Therapy?” My response? I am not passionate about Physical Therapy…I’m passionate about the way WE do Physical Therapy.
While I was in PT school a professor, who I had great respect for, shared with the class how to develop the model for an ideal practice. This model was very patient centric and focused on evidence based medicine, providing one-on-one care, engaging with patients, and providing an environment which allows staff to develop relationships with the people in the communities in which we practice. Then, on graduation, he said if we ever found this type of practice we needed to join it and grow there, because they are few and far between. I never forgot that message.
After practicing for a few years with a national organization, an opportunity was made available to possibly move into the area of private practice. My vision for the practice would be to create that very practice my professor spoke of in PT school. Despite the detractors who told me it couldn’t be done. Despite being told that business model would never be sustainable over time.
Despite all that, we opened Rehabilitation and Performance Center in March 2009 in Greensboro, GA at Lake Oconee in a 1700 sq. ft. space. Since then, we have expanded to a 3200 sq. ft. space and have added an aquatics therapy pool. Also during that time, in 2013 we added a second office at 316 Professional Quarters in Watkinsville, GA where we have continued to grow and provide individual care to the residents of the community and surrounding areas. Things are good…great actually.
How did we do it? Simple…by being obsessed with providing patients with an unbelievable experience through personal engagement and individual care. Our therapists aren’t treating 16+ patients per day and never will. It’s not our model. Our therapists treat 11-12 patients per day…intentionally. Patients are seen by licensed credentialed therapists EVERY visit.
You will never come in and be seen by an unlicensed PT Technician with a licensed PT “observing” the session. Each patient receives an individually designed treatment plan, not protocol driven plan. Why? Not all problems/injuries have the same cause of onset. Whether being seen for an orthopedic issue, balance/dizziness problems, or a neurologic deficit, patients should not all have the same treatment plan. It should be designed to each person’s individual needs. No exceptions.
I’m passionate about the way we do Physical Therapy for a reason. To provide patients with an exceptional experience and setting them up for the best possible opportunity for success. At Rehabilitation and Performance Center we LOVE what we do and we strive do it with excellence!
Consider us for all your Physical Therapy needs. You’ll notice a difference, I promise!
