"Deena Levy is an outstanding physical therapist, and particularly a blessing for dancers. There are so many exceptional things about the work that Deena does, but I think what I have come to appreciate the most is her concern for -and attention to- how our work will actually be applied in my real life. I have seen many physical therapists over the course of my career, and never have I encountered someone so dedicated to learning about the patterns of her clients' lives and committed to trying to place her solutions into that context, rather than the other way around. In this way, Deena’s approach is comprehensive and all-encompassing; she does not simply treat a person’s injury, but instead looks to understand and improve their overall quality of life.
I cannot thank you enough for all of your help!!!"
