March 2018
The amount of time the staff puts in with speaking to me even in simple issues was extraordinary. I appreciate it tremendously.
February 2018
Was nice to have someone discuss what I would be looking at doing & how to help recover the best way possible.
July 2017
Didn´t appreciate references to my weight and speaking to me as if I were a child. He´s very nice but must be used to dealing with people that don´t understand medical language.
June 2017
Charlie is always so encouraging, engaging and listens!
June 2017
Excellent surgeon (B____) and all the rest of the staff!
May 2017

March 2017
The experience exceeded my expectations. I was asked if it was worse that I expected (knee replacement) my response was "way better".
February 2017
Charlie takes the time to explain everything and always goes above and beyond. He has worked hard with me and has helped very much.
January 2017
Charlie is excellent PT. I had recommended to my friend.
January 2017
My recovery has been progressing extremely well, and Charlie is a huge part of the reason why. I totally appreciate all of his knowledge, guidance & humor. I´d recommend him unequivocally to anyone in my position.
January 2017
Charlie is the best physical therapist!
January 2017
Charlie is incredible. He is smart & caring & he explains everything well.
January 2017
Charlie, Dr. Belfie and all staff have been phenomenal throughout surgery and follow up care. Thorough and consistent, would highly recommend to others.
December 2016
Charlie answered all of my questions & made my experience as smooth as possible. He was in no rush & made sure I felt confident before leaving the clinic.
December 2016
I think that all the Sports Med PT´s are really good. However, I have found that Charlie is truly OUTSTANDING.
November 2016
I like/love the way Charlie TEACHES as he does PT. He informs why you are doing the exercise.
September 2016
Charlie Bellia is the best physical therapist I have ever seen. He analyses the root cause of the issue rather than just treating the symptoms.
August 2016
Good, practical, personal help.
May 2016
I was really stressed that day - my first appointment didn´t go as expected and with pre-surgery nerves I was quite anxious by the time I saw Mr. Bellia. He was super calm & patient which I SO appreciated!!
April 2016
I felt as though too much time was used going over diagrams & models & no effort was made to do any therapy other than assign & demonstrate exercises to do on my own.
January 2016
Great experience from start to finish!
