Prospect Physical Therapy truly is a family run practice. Justin and Elan have been friends since the 3rd grade. They have been working and volunteering in physical therapy clinics together since the age of SIXTEEN!!! Now, experienced in their field, they have decided to work together in their own clinic. They strive to provide the type of treatment to the public that they would offer their own family members. Just ask the office manager Irene. Not only was she a past patient, she is also Justin’s mother.
