Cynthia U.

“My teenage son had an injury late on a Thursday night recently. We reached out to the professional staff at Sports Academy and they got us in touch with the HPSMT immediately. My son had an appointment the very next morning. The staff was courteous. The doctor was great. The doctor recommended physical therapy and my son was back in action soon after. Hands down the best treatment and service you can ask for!”
