What's Your CORA Story?
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The therapists who worked with me were very professional and worked hard to see that I had the necessary treatment plan to best insure a good recovery. They seemed to truly care about my pain situation and how to best resolve it. The facility was very clean and neat and all the equipment was constantly being cleaned to prevent any COVID-19 infection. Martin and Kelly were great! I would highly recommend this facility and these therapists. In fact, I am returning for more therapy--this time on my back.
The professional manner that both Kelly and Brandon exhibited during my time there. Their friendly service was certainly appreciated. I would definitely recommend this clinic and the staff.
I have a bad ankle break with plates and screws and never had physical therapy before. I had heard stories where people said where they went the therapist hurt them, so I didn't know what to expect. The first day I went in Angie made me feel very welcome. She even came out to the car got my wheelchair out and pushed me in and out for about a month. She made me feel like it wasn't a problem at all to do this. Timothy went over everything I should expect. Then Kelly took over, very professional and really knows her job. The place is extremely clean. You don't have to worry about using dirty equipment. Always cleaned down after use.
I had lots of pain in my neck and shoulder! At 77 years old, I am trying to just stay able to care for myself. This is my third time seeing CORA. The PT's seem to really care about their patients. They try to relieve your pain and they are just GOOD at what they do!
This was my 2nd round of PT with CORA. The first time was for plantar fasciitis, this time was a small tear in my meniscus. Everyone was extremely competent and supportive. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. The staff at North Knoxville is incredible. They know what they are doing and listened to me when I said something was or wasn’t working. If I ever need PT again, this is the only place I would go.
I came to CORA after a total right knee replacement. I have not been able to straighten my knee for over 12 years and after the surgery it has been difficult to straighten it. Tom, Joy, Kelly and John have worked with me and gave me home exercises to work on. They have been extremely patient but firm because you need that in a therapist to get the maximum benefit. They push but don’t push you beyond your limit. This is a great place to just come work hard and believe in the therapist that you can do what they say you can. Keep the faith it gets easier every day!
I have been a patient multiple times for different joint replacements. I return because of the hands on attention I have received from the staff at CORA. Kelly and Tom and Joe have all worked very hard to assure a good outcome after my surgeries. I will continue to use CORA for any future physical therapy needs. I would recommend them to my friends and family.
I was so impressed at how friendly Kelly and Brandon where. They made me feel so comfortable and optimistic about the process that they had planned out for me. They both are very knowledgeable and know their job well. After two weeks my back feels a lot better. I'm sure that soon my back will make a full recovery.
I liked the cleanliness as well as the options of equipment to do therapy. Angela at front desk was very welcoming and friendly. I've been seeing Joe and he's doing great job. Kelley is very knowledgeable as well. They are attentive to the clients they are working with.
