With the onset of Parkinsons, my balance affected my participation in my life long sports of golf and bird hunting. Rock Steady Boxing has given me the desire and ability to restore those pursuits.  I look forward to each and every session with my fellow participants and instructors! ~Perry Stone

“I had a knee replacement last year and went to another PT place and at every visit did the same exercises. In February, I had the other knee replaced and this time went to Comber PT and what a difference. The staff are friendly, professional and really care. I had Don and Scott for my team and they were excellent. Each time I visited they gave me different exercises to strengthen around the knee. This knee didnt do as well as the last one but Don & Scott pushed me and my knee is doing so much better than I thought it ever would and I thank them so much. Love the after PT where I can come anytime and use the equipment to get even stronger.” ~ Janice Elko

“Best Specialist working there! Very friendly and helpful! I would love to go back one day! I visited one that near New Town!” ~ Diana Horsfall

“I have only been a patient for about 6 weeks, but because of the high quality care I am receiving, I am already noticing great improvements. I highly recommend Comber Physical Therapy.” ~ Samantha Saghera

“Staff is first class – very knowledgeable and committed to patient care and success of therapy. They work very effectively as a team and all members are effective in creating a totally integrated team effort.” ~ Terence Elkins

“I was very hesitant to begin physical therapy and actually postponed it as long as I could, which was a mistake! Had I known how amazing all of the staff at Comber was I would have jumped on it from the beginning. It has been a wonderful experience had has improved my well-being immensely!” ~ Amanda McDonald

“I really enjoy working out at Comber. Everyone is very upbeat and positive and that is contagious. In the Rock Steady boxing program Scott really pushes us hard, and its fun as well as rewarding.” ~ Jim Hewitt

“At Comber I have been a patient three times over the last several years and have always received the best quality care. I used to lose faith in the rehabilitative benefits of physical therapy from my previous experiences as an adolescent and young adult. However, Dr. Bret Schaller was the first to ever take my complicated pain history and make an incredible amount of headway. He took my shoulder, which never healed properly from a traumatic break of 13 years, and was able to increase my mobility and reduce my pain with his innovative and holistic techniques. Dr. Schaller, Kristen, and Bob have all been very helpful in supporting and coaching me through my neck and back recovery from a recent accident. Cheryl was also great for dry needling. The techs are really fun to work with too. Highly recommend them above all other PT offices in the area. Thanks so much Comber team!” ~ Lisa Frazier

“I have been going to Comber PT for months. I started because of pulled muscles in both arms and sciatica pain. At first, I could not lift my right arm. They have worked with me and I am doing very well. No more sciatica pain and arms are much better. Left arm great, right arm almost at 100%. They have a plan specific to each person’s need. Thankful for the attention, friendliness, hard work that I have experienced with them first hand. All of the workers are excellent. They meld well together as a team. They make you feel welcome and consider all your needs. They check on you often and even offer to get you water. They are very observant of what is going on around them. Keep up the excellent work, Comber Team.” ~ Roberta Price

“I come here with my sister she is getting therapy to strengthen her knee and the staff they have in here are excellent from the time we walk in the door an get greeted by name from the front desk until my sister goes to the back and does therapy it’s excellent service the Comber team is awesome if you need therapy, I would highly recommend Comber.” ~ Gemini Standing

“If you need PT go to Comber. I actually enjoy going here because everyone is friendly and professional, which makes PT more enjoyable. The personal attention has helped me a lot.” ~ Songthara Omkar

“Bret, Kristin B., and Kristin K. have helped me the most. I especially appreciate Kristin B. because she understands back problems and how to correct them from her personal experience. She is also very encouraging. I also appreciate all the techs for their cheerful attitudes at all times.” ~Yvonne Phillips

“I have been to 3 other places in Williamsburg for therapy for lower back pain, balance control, confidence in doing everyday living, and pain after several falls, and I have found Comber Physical Therapy to be FAR better than my previous experiences.  The therapists and overall therapy far exceed anywhere else in town.  The therapists are trained for excellence in every respect and always apply excellent care and service.  I will recommend Comber to anyone needing therapy.  They also have the latest and best equipment.” ~Dorothy Bell

“When I started treatment about two months ago, I couldn’t imagine the wonderful, healing results I would feel today. My pain is just a pin point area now and my energy is renewed. Such TLC your staff offers is the best! I’m finished with my program today, but I’m so impressed that I’ll continue on my own here, on a monthly basis. Too good to let go, and I know a good thing when I see it. Thank you so much. We truly need you.” ~Ellie Thuermer

“I enjoy the friendly and professional environment at Comber. It’s like having my own private health club and personal trainers. I also learned a lot that will help me now and in the future. The exercises and workouts have prepared me to go back to yoga, pilates, and walking. All staff is to be commended.” ~ Lorraine Price

“I was treated for a year old rotator cuff injury that never healed properly. I had only treated it with rest and reduced activity. I had limited range of motion and was prone to reinjury with every attempt to return to normal activities. By manipulation of scar tissue, Russ found the adhesions and “popped” them free. Some were very deep such as the subscapularis. His expert manipulation found and reduced virtually all adhesions allowing a range of motion in all directions of 95-100%.” ~ George R. (Dick) Turner

“The ultimate recommendation is “would you recommend this service to a friend?” I already have. This is my first experience with physical therapy. Starting with home services and culminating with Comber Physical Therapy I could not be more pleased with the results. The staff is qualified, professional and very customer focused. They made me feel very welcome at each session. I am sure I would not have made the progress I have made in 5 weeks without their support and assistance. They have exceeded my expectations.” ~ Robert Andersen

“Carol at Dr. Booth’s office (Fusion Chiropractic) is always cheerful, courteous, and friendly while being one of the most efficient people I have met. Managing Dr. Booth’s schedule with multiple massage therapists is quite a challenge and not everyone could do her job as capably as she can.” ~ Martha R.

“My reason for seeking therapy was lack of range of motion and weakness in my right arm as a result of spinal stenosis. When I started therapy, I could not lift my right arm over my head and could not touch my left ear. Twelve weeks later, I can do both easily and estimate my recovery at about 80%. Dr. Bret Schaller was my coordinator and I attribute much of my recovery to Bret’s skill and personal attention in guiding my exercise regimen. Seldom have I ever met an individual as Bret with such a unique combination of technical knowledge and patient awareness. Bret’s abilities are not alone, as this same level of competence and understanding extends to each and every one of the Comber staff. My two hour sessions were made pleasant, yet productive by the staff as it was clear that these sessions were not just for entertainment, but clearly meant to promote recovery. When Medicare coverage ran out, the staff was quick to prepare an exercise regimen to be done at home along with some basic rubber restraints. In all ways, I had an extraordinarily pleasant experience with equally extraordinary results. My sincerest thanks to the entire Comber staff.” ~ Charles R. Miller

“Comber PT has an awesome staff! Russ’s knowledge and technique are amazing and equally complimented by Mihee’s unprecedented attention and helpful hands. Plus the Tech’s (especially Sunshine & Alex) are extremely helpful and entertaining!” ~ Thomas Booth
