Support Staff

Our support staff at MPTI is dedicated to providing the highest level of customer service and patient care. They support our therapists to assure that each patient visit is a first class experience.

For several years I suffered from low back and neck pain associated with a pins and needles feeling in my left leg. After many different treatments and without any success, I was referred to MPTI as a new alternative. In the beginning I was apprehensive, but after several therapy sessions, I have found some relief. There are days when I feel very bad, but I will continue with my MPTI program, hoping that soon I can recuperate. I am confident, very grateful and very happy with the attention and care that I receive from the therapists and the office personnel.
