“Daryl Murdock is the “go-to” Physical Therapist for my clients.

“As a Professional Conservator and Agent under Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare for numerous clients, I have relied on Daryl Murdock to enhance the quality of life for at least 10 of my clients by working with them individually to provide therapies for better balance, posture and strength. Over the past 15 years, at least three of my clients completely lost their ability to walk. Once Daryl started working with them, in a short period of time they were walking with assistance, which made toileting and bathing much easier for the client and the caregiver. One of these individuals suffered a broken hip and stayed in bed for several months. Daryl had her walking 100 steps by the third visit. I have never experienced another Physical Therapist that had the ability to motivate an individual who had given up. I owe Daryl Murdock many thanks for giving a second chance to so many.”---Gloria Trumble CLPF
“As a professional fiduciary I fulfilled the position of DPOAHC and trustee for a wonderful elderly man who had been active most of his life as a horse trainer and hauler. He was able to live at home however he was not one to take to conventional therapies, He was quickly losing his mobility and Daryl came to the rescue. Daryl was able to make PT fun for this gentleman. He incorporated "unconventional" therapies like playing horseshoes. This activity helped strengthen his balance and ability to stand for longer periods of time (not to mention the fun of winning). A trusting relationship was built which allowed Daryl to assist with other therapies as well. If it were not for Daryl this gentleman may have been destined to live in a facility rather than be in his own home. Thank you Daryl for making this man's wishes achievable.”---Deanna Lavere CLPF
D. “I was in attendance each time Daryl performed therapy on my 99 year old mother-in-law who suffers from vertigo. He not only treated her vertigo problem, he walked with her to strengthen her legs and improve her balance. He made several good suggestions that helped her in other ways. He was very thorough and professional in all he did.”---William McCoy
“I have had experience with Daryl for 4 years. I was in a wheelchair and I’m walking now. He is a very fantastic physical therapist.”---Nancy W.
“He’s great. He pushes me, but to a good extent. He got me walking with my walker, after not walking for 3 years. He’s friendly, just a nice person.”--- Marilynn E.
