    This is an outstanding facility staffed with wonderful people. I've used them multiple times for various problems. My husband, son, niece, most of my Sunday School class, and many teachers I used to work with have all improved from therapy here. The techs, PT assistants and PTs are all kind, patient and gentle. I love them all. They make it a warm, comforting and pleasant place to be. It's actually a fun place!

    I recently had knee replacement surgery and was told physical therapy is the absolute key to regaining full function of my knee. The wonderful folks at B&S are awesome! So kind and understanding of my pain while gently guiding and encouraging me through the exercises to help me regain mobility and strength. After just a couple weeks, I'm already doing SO MUCH better! It's all because of the outstanding therapists at Barkman & Smith!!!

    Barkman & Smith (Bedford) provided guided physical therapy that allowed me to recover from neck pain from an auto accident, and recently from an ankle injury that handicapped my ability to be active. Their system of starting with heat and electrodes, then stretching and strength exercises, finished with massage and ice has helped me recover from what could have been injuries that never went away. I appreciate their practice. It's worth doing their program, especially their suggested home program, if you want to turn the clock back.

    I have only had three sessions for back pain with the Physical Therapists at Barkman and Smith, with very satisfactory results. I actually helped my husband with yard work today, and could bend down with no pain! I could not have worked that hard without having the therapy, along with home exercises. Thanks, Michael, Paul, Gabe and Andrea!

    I have been a returning customer since April 2004. Most of my injuries were caused by playing aggressive tennis. Barkman and Smith's staff have helped me get back on the court and into life following foot, knee, shoulder, back, sciatic nerve, and piriformus pains. The environment is totally accepting, caring, supportive, encouraging, and technically competent. I am also drawn to seeking all my physical therapy at Barkman and Smith because of their respect for spiritual faith and healing. When I am being treated I do not feel like I am a patient but a suffering person that is getting encouraged by a multitude of friends.

    I had a knee replacement in June and started my rehab program with Smith and Barkman which concluded in early October. I was very impressed with the successful rehab support I received but also with the positive attitude of the staff. They are the best, everyone works to make it as positive as possible.

    Barkman & Smith is the best physical therapy I have ever had. They have one-to-one therapiy meaning during the entire physical therapy session there is a therapist working only with you. I’ve unfortunately experienced a lot of physical therapy in my lifetime and they are by far the best place I have ever visited. Everyone is so pleasant to work with and very helpful. I highly recommend them.

    This is AWESOME! How they are dedicated to their assignments. At their direction, you begin to feel special. You realize what a UNIQUE experience this has become...Finally, when the routines are finished for the day, you are taken to a clean table for the cool down with a PTA. What a luxury this is. Thank you Barkman & Smith for this "UNIQUE EXPERIENCE". B.H.

    What a joyful operation and crew… It was fun well rounded and gave me the recovery therapy I needed following total knee replacement… My operated on leg match or exceeded the range of motion of my other leg when I was finished … the staff was welcoming, knowledgeable, prepared and kept you focused during the sessions. It was a grateful and memorable experience that I will never forget… Congratulations, and thank all of you for a wonderful experience,

    I actually looked forward to PT at Barkman & Smith - not the pain part but the people part and seeing steady improvement. My experience was three separate periods over about an eight year span which included two knee replacements and back surgery. Ron and Vincent, the other therapists and the staff are all outstanding. They made a challenging situation fun, helped me laugh when I wanted to whine and to achieve the progress needed. I can’t imagine going anywhere else. I’m happy to give them a 5 Star rating!

    My experience with Barkman & Smith was outstanding. I had sixteen sessions for a cervical strain, and not only did their therapists resolve my problem, but I left with my neck and shoulders feeling better than they have in years. I highly recommend them if you need physical therapy.

    I went to B&S in 2012 and again in 2013 with two knee replacements and they were the best. They make a painful, challenging situation easier by helping you feel hopeful. They help you find the positive, "can do" attitude it takes to accomplish your goals. Now I'm back again in 2017 following back surgery - same positive environment- professional, knowledgeable, staff of therapists. I know it sounds strange to say you enjoy going to PT - but I do enjoy the experience because it works and the people are so great. Highly recommend them!
