CompletePT has been helping patients since 1999. Our physical therapy programs coupled with our licensed physical therapists set us apart from our peers.
Here’s what our patients have to say:
I woke up one day with terrible leg pain and went to a doctor who gave me shots and pain killers and it didn’t help. My son is a doctor and knew about CompletePT and told me about it. Before I came here I had no idea that such a place existed in such a professional setting. It took a few months of physical therapy for the pain to decrease in my leg and to wean off the pain killers.
Physical therapy on land and pool here has helped me tremendously because if I were not coming here I would be sitting in the chair at home or going from sitting at home to sitting in the car.
It is amazing how easy and comforting it is to exercise in the water. Exercising in the pool has helped so that the leg pain is mostly gone and my back pain is better. I am 100 years old and at my age I can’t expect to not have any pain, but I can walk better and stand up straighter than I could before.
Both the men and women of the employees here are very professional and everything is done very professionally. I appreciate what everyone has done.
The prospect of shoulder surgery and months of physical therapy was not anything I welcomed. I had physical therapy many years ago at a facility that was, at best, a disappointing experience. I was pleasantly surprised when I began my therapy at Complete PT.
Because I was not able to drive, my wonderful husband, Jim, was my caregiver, chauffeur and constant companion during my recuperation process. We were impressed at how the staff at Complete PT works as a cohesive family. Each staff member is knowledgeable, efficient, welcoming, and friendly. After my first few visits, everyone at the Front Desk knew who I was and what I was there for. They all assisted in scheduling my appointments and always followed up to be sure I had what I needed. I appreciate all they have done for me.
My most sincere gratitude goes to my Physical Therapist, Jessica Bufete. Jessica's incredible skills as a therapist, her professionalism, encouragement, enthusiasm, and personality, made it enjoyable for me to heal. Thanks to both Jessica and her assistant, Krystle, and their kindness and patience, I now have regained back all of my range of motion and am almost pain free.
I am glad I "have my shoulder back" and am able to now do everything for myself that I could do before my injury. I know it may seem strange, but I am also feeling a bit sad because now that I have completed my Physical Therapy sessions, I will not be seeing all who have worked so hard with me to help me reach my goal. I guess Jim and I will just have to stop by to say "Hi".
Very professional and courteous staff. They have given me helpful exercises for home use. I highly recommend CompletePT.
CompletePT has helped me improve my walking and balance. Still needs more therapy but can feel an improvement. Will definitely recommend your facility to my friends and relatives!
I can't say enough positive words about CompletePT. The pool, the therapists, the locker rooms are all top notch and I'm sure they are the finest - anywhere. I feel blessed to have found them as I have improved steadily.
My experience with CPT has all been positive and something I looked forward to each session. The staff is efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. The therapists are professional and enthusiastic when working with the patients and they offer encouragement along the journey. I have sent one of your packets to Dr. Weinberg at Pacific Heart Institute in Santa Monica and I tell all my friends about how great it is here. I will be having my other knee worked on next year and I am looking forward to doing my PT with you guys. Thanks for everything.
I wanted to share with you quickly how much I enjoyed mine with Raymond. I have been having some pain in my Lower Back; and he showed me some exercises that I believe will help. I was so impressed with his “calm and gentle” style. I have always had a hard time relaxing and I did not have that problem at all with him. He has an excellent “bedside manner” for lack of a better term. Kudos! to him and to you. I can’t wait to try everything I learned today on my own. I honestly do feel better already.
I was most impressed with not only the physical therapist skills, but also their caring. They have a wide variety of techniques that not only helped the flexibility of my knee, but also strengthen the surrounding muscles. The PT staff coordinated my progress between my twice weekly visits so that they knew what I needed in my next visit.
The administrative staff also did an excellent job in working out times so that appointments could be scheduled. They also made follow-up phone calls to ensure that I knew exactly when my next appointment was scheduled. Without their professionalism, the entire operation would be less successful.
Follow up exercises were printed out for me so I can continue my exercises at home.
No small matter is the excellent parking – especially important to those of us needing therapy.
Overall an excellent experience.
I've had Physical Therapy before and feel like it was a on-size fits all approach. CompletePT's Kristy & Jen take into consideration my individual needs. They are accurate in correcting issues and always kind & caring.
This is an excellent facility for all kinds of rehab - physical therapy.
I am extremely pleased with the services I am receiving at CompletePT. The therapists have been very courteous, concerned and helpful.
Nicole has helped me improve my confidence in myself. The staff at CompletePT has also been extremely nice!
Great Staff, they made me feel very comfortable.
I'm able to do just about everything and I am still working my home exercises to make sure I continue on this path.
Therapy has made me feel like I will be able to have a life after surgery.
My experience with the therapists and aides at Complete PT has been very beneficial and memorable event. I went from pain everyday and trouble walking, to feeling as if I were years younger.
Complete PT is number one on my recommendation list. Thank you so much! Wishing you continued success.
Terry Gordy Sr.
My son is a doctor - he now recommends Pool Therapy and he is a neurosurgeon. He originally wanted me to have surgery
I have been quite pleased with the care & treatment at CompletePT. This is my second round of treatment. This time for my hip which I injured. The physical therapists are well trained and have the ability to make the patients at ease.
The pool itself has wonderful healing powers complimented by the PT's exercises. I highly recommend Complete P.T.
My experience with Lindsay & Robert has been one of caring - listening to my problems and treating it with care & clarity - I've been in pain for close to 5 years and Lindsay's treatment is the first time I've had relief. I'm very grateful.
Great therapists - very empathetic and professional - great facility.
I loved coming here. Everyone has been really nice to me and helpful. Really like Jessica!
Love it here! I hope I can stay in the pool for a few more months.
I have had a very good experience here and look forward to getting more strength in my core and legs so I can get up more easily.
Dr Kathryn McMahon
Very professional, knowledgeable and expert physical therapy from a superb staff
The therapists in particular have all been attentive and helpful. I very much appreciate that.
It's like coming and enjoying the afternoon with your extended family which makes things much easier.
I love the water therapy at CompletePT. It is very therapeutic and keeps me moving in and out of the water.
After my total hip replacement surgery, I came to PT weak and confused, as a very active guy in my mid-forties, I suffered a physical and psychological blow wondering how I'd crawl my way out of that hole. CompletePT's entire staff (from the front desk to PT Aides) to Lindsay, my main PT, immediately made me comfortable. Along with their focused facilitation toward re-strengthening, they were also invaluable to my state of mind as they taught me the fundamentals of the effects of surgery and how the body heals. As I continue recovery at PT, I see clearly that I will be able to resume my athletic lifestyle. The doctors tell me I'll eventually have to get my other hip replaced. When I do, I know where I'll be coming for PT!
The community is fortunate that CPT is at this location.
Everyone here is terrific, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly.
I am very grateful to all physical therapists who worked with me. It has made such a difference in my day to day activities. Thank you.
Head and shoulders above all others I've been treated at.
I just finished 16 visits with my pool therapy for my L knee ... I have to say a heart filled THANKS!!!!! To Ashley and her team of people who worked with me. When I walk in the front door and I'm greeted by Serena and Corey... They both have a warm smile with a great personality that make you feel very welcomed...first impressions are very important to me and they do a great job...
As far as my PT goes I worked with most all the staff... But I worked with Dani and Amy the most, and once again I was always greeted with a warm smile and a warm personality.... Dani and Amy are both very great conversational people and they know there job very well....they also make sure that I'm always doing my PT the correct way and they always follow through with making sure I do my whole program.. Overall just a wonderful experience...
Ashley gave me my first and final evaluation .... I found her to be great at what she does and has excellent people skills and takes great pride in her job...and overall from walking in the front door to leaving..... through and through, you have a great team of people... Thanks to all for what you do.
I first came to Complete PT approximately two years ago, when I was suffering with osteoarthritis in my right hip. I learned of the clinic after reading Lynda Huey's book, "Heal Your Hips". I have been physically active all of my adult life, but the pain was severely impacting my ability to exercise and stay healthy. After a few months of water, then land therapy, Ashley Gast suggested that I go back to my doctor and perhaps have another MRI. I wasn't making progress and it was possible that the damage was too great. As she suspected, the results were grim and I needed to have a total hip replacement sooner, rather than later. 10 months after the surgery I was still experiencing discomfort in the hip joint area, pain in my lower back and weakness on the right side. I obtained a prescription for PT from the surgeon (none was prescribed immediately after the surgery) and went directly back to Complete PT. The evaluation revealed that I was suffering from an imbalance/alignment problem, which could be corrected with physical therapy. Kristy Laing and Chance treated me with great success. Within about three months I had strengthened the stabilizing muscles such that I was able to walk a marathon and am now able to ski moguls pain-free. I never thought I would be able to do that again. I will be forever grateful for the great care I received and I continue to recommend Kristy and Complete PT to all of my friends who are in need of PT. Thank you again, Kristy!

The staff at CompletePT are knowledgeable, supportive, professional, positive, compassionate and inspiring.
The types of therapy you offer has had a very positive impact on my recovery from shoulder surgery.
The staff is very caring and makes the client feel very comfortable in their abilities. They strive for improvement and makes the client capable of improvement.
Everyone is outstanding! They have been more helpful and caring than the neurologists I have seen, also more thorough in their evaluations.
53 weeks after surgery--second place zuma beach coed 4's tourney (13 games!)--couldn't have done it without you! all my best
Thank you Complete PT Staff! The environment here is very caring.
I'm in love with CompletePT and the lovely young therapists. They all make me feel special and are very encouraging. I definitely would use their services again and again!
Love pool therapy. Have seen and felt much improvement in flexibility and strength. Staff is very positive, encouraging and motivating.
I have always found all the PTs at this facility helpful and cheerful. Mu condition has always improved after I have been here.
Best PT experience I've ever had with knowledgeable staff that is friendly / courteous.
What an amazing staff from the office to the physical therapists. I was always met with encouragement and my sessions were catered specifically to my needs in that particular day. All of my questions were always answered and my progress was tracked with the utmost care. Thank you to all.
This is top of the line! Your staff is always professional, knowledgeable and friendly. It's wonderful to do water and land therapy.
I have had many sessions in land therapy and only recently began water therapy. For me, and my physical condition, I find water therapy much better. Physically, I can so much more in the water than I do on land, perhaps in my next life I'll be a duck! All the physical therapists who have worked with me are excellent! Their care and commitment, their happiness at seeing my improvement all added to my motivation. The one-on-one attention for 45 minutes really helps too! I would also like to mention that the staff at the front desk are wonderful. I felt welcome from the moment I came to CPT. I highly recommend this place.
I feel cared about - not just a patient.
Everyone at CompletePT is so very nice to not only me but to everyone I see. So thank you all so very much.
Everyone goes out of their way to be super helpful and genuinely concerned.
Excellent facilities and staff and very helpful guidance for my problems.
I was post surgical when I started "Complete PT" in January of 2011, after a serious bulging disc had left my back extremely vulnerable and no feeling in the inside of one leg. My balance was off, I was weak and I was unable to function normally.
Complete PT has turned my life around with their keen sense of how to strengthen my core and restore my balance. We started gently with aquatic therapy, which is not only pain free, but relaxing as well. Steady moves, stretches, and, without my realizing it, cardio! We eventually moved into small water weights, and I was able to restore my leg muscles.
Six months into therapy, I'm now able to handle land exercises and I'm working mainly on balance. I've been told by my doctor that my nerve may not heal for many months, but my back and legs are stronger, supporting my weight and movement.
I'm so thankful for the understanding, patient and very competent staff at Complete PT. They listen, they watch, and encourage me when I'm ready. I don't know where I'd be without them!
This is only my 3rd visit, I have 3 more but your facility is the best. I travel all the way from the South Bay to have your expertise. Excellent.
Staff is helpful and patient. Exercises are explained and my many questions to the physical therapy staff are always answered.
Excellent water program and people.
It's great here, Jenn is wonderful!
I think the staff is just wonderful. They are courteous, caring and always willing to help, and make you feel so welcome.
The integrated approach between the pool and land are the best method I've ever experienced.
Wonderful experience, and my knee is better!
I don't think you can find a better place for rehab.
This is the best experience with PT I have ever had. CPT is friendly and fun.
After having a total hip replacement, I came to CPT wobbling on a cane. Twenty-One days of therapy with Kevin Wagner gave me "complete" confidence and motivation to push myself harder. I did. Happy indeed with the therapy I received. The staff is truly awesome. Thank you CPT.
To whom it may concern
I was directed to your facility by Dr. Orrin Troum of Santa Monica and I would like to tell you that I have been impressed by the treatment I have received. Your entire staff seems imbued with a spirit of cheerful helpfulness.
I have been around for a very long time and I rarely send fan mail, but my experience with you staff prompted this uncommon missive.
Exceptionally supportive atmosphere, very concerned and helpful staff.
Everyone is very kind and helpful.
I was here after back surgery and after shoulder surgery. Both times your therapy have been of great help.
I drive 30 miles to come to CompletePT because I know I'll be well taken care of!! Thank God for Lynda & Kevin.
Courtney B Vance
Very clean, very efficient.
Getting the knee moving again after a knee replacement is key. Jenn has given me the right exercises and do's & don'ts to make my recovery successful thus far.
This has been a great experience for me as far as water therapy. Everyone is so helpful and the whole operation runs so smoothly. I see a lot of improvement in my condition.
I think the staff and therapists are exceptionally kind and treat seniors with respect. They are GREAT!
Great staff, great service, friendly and comfortable environment, and very informative.
When my doctor recommended pool therapy for me I thought my running/jogging days were over. But thanks to Complete PT and the wonderful therapists I am back to jogging. After reviewing my diagnosis they planned an exercise regiment for me that was great. And the knowledge that I received will continue to help me improve and get stronger. I am also looking to incorporate some pool exercise in my workout routine. Every therapist at Complete PT was knowledgeable, friendly and always professional. On my first visit I knew that my goal was to get back to jogging. Being optimistic after my first couple of visits, I knew that I had to give my all and put my well being in the hands of the therapist. I would highly recommend Complete PT, the facility is great, the office staff is friendly and the professional staff is awesome. Thank you Compete PT.
Dear Future Complete PT Patients and Their Doctors:
I write this letter to say how overwhelmingly impressed I am with the services provided to me by the staff at Complete PT.
Let me be frank, I was not a big proponent of physical therapy (PT) at the outset. I was in a serious car accident—slammed into from behind—nearly totaling my car and almost breaking off my head rest in the process.
My primary physician initially recommended 6 PT sessions at the clinic’s adjoining PT facility. My neck was terribly sore, I wasn’t able to look over my right shoulder to see my blind spot while driving, and other problems with my back began to appear.
The voodoo “PT” people at the facility gave me a few exercises, put an ultrasound machine on my neck with some gel on it and sent me on my way. Repeat a few days later. I wasn’t getting any better. I WAS PISSED! I was disappointed and I was seriously afraid I’d have neck and back issues for the rest of my life.
Happily, I demanded another primary care physician, and then I voiced my concerns. My new doctor, Dr. Aviva Bernat, enthusiastically recommended I get a few sessions at Complete PT. Having been through the ridiculous, voodoo, nightmarish crap at the previous facility, it’s an understatement to say I was reluctant. She told me Complete PT had RESOUNDING success with many of her previous patients and that, resistant as I was, even I would see the difference.
She couldn’t have been more right. Thank GOD she put me onto them. From my initial meeting, I knew Complete PT meant business. A huge weight was lifted as, right from the very outset, they were able to manipulate my neck and upper back muscles, tendons, bones, whatever…and they were able to tell me where the problems were, how they would “work” on them to fix them, etc. It was then that I realized I was in an entirely different world.
Almost a year later I have no neck issues and we’ve nearly resolved all my problems due to that motor vehicle accident. There is a difference in PT institutions. I suppose it’s similar to other aspects of life...if you need a car, there are used car lots and Mercedes Benz dealerships. Complete PT is the Mercedes Benz of physical therapy. Without the price tag.
I’m not sure my initial primary care doctor even knows there is a difference in the level of treatment from various PT facilities. Had I not requested a new doctor, I wouldn’t have known about Complete PT. I shudder to think what kind of condition I’d be in today. Do your homework. Research various places. Make sure Complete PT is one of them—you won’t regret it.
I cannot recommend them highly enough. It’s because I’m better today that I can write all of the above. I take my health VERY seriously and because of their efforts I am so much better today. They made all the difference in my world.
Gee, those kids at Complete P.T. sure are strong! I got nothin' but love for 'em! Cravin' that ICE and E-STIM BIG time!
Hey guys! I just wanted to thank you for all of your help in getting me back in tip top condition. I know i'm still a work in progress, I have a ways to go. You are a hard-working, dedicated group.
THANKS!!! You are all the very best! Although sometimes painful and tough, each of you I worked with made my rehab experience great. I always appreciate your smiles and kindness and care! Please keep up the great work. I'll be back next year when I have my other knee operated on.
Thank you so much for your support and encouragement! You lifted my spirits and "patiently" motivated me to work hard to improve. Now i'm also focused on getting physically stronger & healthier. You are all models for this.
Thank you for your patience, skill and kindness in helping me along the road to healing. You are the best.
Between Ami’s elbow digging in and the great care I get in the pool, my back condition is next to nothing. The best thing about the staff at CompletePT is that everyone is always upbeat and happy. They always bring me up, never down.
Debra manages the pool and gym and understands how exercise and therapy interweave. Patients from CompletePT often end up in fitness classes and vice versa. Debra said that it is comforting to members to know that physical therapists are available near-by to help with injuries and other physical concerns.
“The Saban Center is very fortunate to have the physical therapy experts from Complete PT available to its members. This is a very important piece of the puzzle in that it supports our vision of providing a well-rounded aquatic, fitness and wellness program.”
After my total hip surgery, I'm not as quick with my first step but other than that i have no problems or restrictions. I'm not even icing anything but my knees. I owe you a tremendous debt of gratitude for your help, guidance and encouragement.
I've always counted on my exercise routine for my mental and physical outlet. When I was diagnosed a year ago with rheumatoid arthritis, I was horribly unhappy that I could no longer run or even do 15 minutes on the elliptical without both my knees swelling and hurting.
I was never a big fan of the water, but I've changed my opinion in the past three months. In deep water, I can run, power-walk, and move in ways I can no longer do on land. I can get my heart rate up high, work my muscles hard, and my joints don't complain later that day. Lynda Huey keeps adding new challenging exercises that keep me interested in coming back. Nothing else gives me such a great workout without hurting my inflamed joints. I'm going to start taking Waterpower Workout classes and make this a regular part of my life.
The therapists at CompletePT have done a great job of being both nurturing and challenging during my recuperation from a back injury. My improvements in the last two months have been amazing! I feel stronger and much better than I ever have. I look forward to my appointments each week.
The environment of CompletePT at the Saban Center makes you feel like you’re at a resort. The individualized attention from the friendly staff that each patient receives is like nothing I’ve ever experienced… I am now able to lead a manageable pain-free life.
After 35 years of stunt work, one hip replacement, one pending, and endless back and neck injuries, I managed my days with anti-inflammatories and pain meds. After just 6 weeks of CompletePT strength training and mobilization, I was 85% limp-free and pain-free with no meds. Even more impressive was their true concern, care, and attention to my improvement. They worked harder than I did and gave me back quality of life. Priceless!
As a professional stuntman and athlete, I have found CompletePT amazing! The highly trained therapists and staff have put me well on the road to recovery. The constant positive energy, ever-challenging therapy, and smiling faces have helped me achieve and surpass my physical therapy goals. Words could never express how grateful I am for all of their help. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Lynda Huey’s pool program bought me an extra year of running around in movies. I’d tell you about CPT’s new genius techniques for preventing knee surgeries, but you’ve got to feel it for yourself!
As a former athlete and dancer, I’m well acquainted with injury and with physical therapy. No other program has ever had such a positive influence on my recovery as CompletePT’s.
Over an eight-year period I worked with six different
physical therapists, consulted with eight orthopedic surgeons, had four MRIs, tried herbs, acupuncture, and deep tissue massage and I still couldn’t do much more than walk on a level surface without serious pain in both knees – and I’m only twenty-nine years old. After pool sessions at CompletePT for five months, I am now running without pain.
After five spinal surgeries in the last fifteen years, I have tried every kind of therapy to regain my strength and to be able to exercise. The minute I got in the pool at CompletePT, with its amazing program and unequalled therapists, it was as though a miracle had occurred. Within weeks, I had toned up incredibly, regained my strength, and gotten rid of virtually all of my pain. Do not despair — this will really work for you, physically and mentally.
This pool program saved my life. I had pain from my groin to my knee when I came to CompletePT. Now I can work out. I’ve gone from a size 8 to a size 2/4 and I can even go skiing in Europe.
