Dr. Justen Hinerman and Merry go above an beyond in ensuring that your treatment go as smoothly and painlessly as possible. They are highly communicative, and make you feel like a friend or family member rather than a patient you know they have your best interest at heart. I am extremely grateful for them!
My experience with Therapydia has always been great. The exercises Justen has me doing after getting into my automobile accident has helped me. I am always greeted with a warm welcome whenever I came in for my appointment. Office is nice and clean, and they play good music while you are doing your exercises.
Justen is very effective with his treatment style and Merry is efficient with getting me on schedule. Therapydia Pearlridge is awesome and I highly recommend them.
