“Chantelle is knowledgeable, approachable and a joy to be around. The part that makes her a wonderful physiotherapist is the time she takes to assess and treat me as well as her caring approach. She is very flexible and willing to look at new approaches for treatment when something is not working. I very much appreciate Chantelle’s support and willingness to do whatever it takes to reach my treatment goals. I would highly recommend Chantelle as a physiotherapist.”
