    I have been going to Barkman and Smith for many years. I have had physical therapy on both ankles, both knees, neck, back, wrist, hip, shoulder and elbow. After enduring over 20+ surgeries on my joints and going through some difficult rehab and some easy rehab, I can honestly say, I can enjoy life mostly pain free. If it wasn't for the dedicated team under the direction of Ron Barkman and Vincent Smith, who pushed me to reach goals I thought I would never be able to reach, I definitely would not be where I am today. I may never be able to run or play sports again, but I can walk and I can enjoy every day life. Thank you Barkman and Smith for helping me to be able to enjoy the little things in life and some of the bigger things like my trip to DC in 2019 and my trip to The Ark in Kentucky this year. I walked more on those two trips than I have in a very long time. I have been truly blessed by receiving some of the best care. Thank you so much for your love and dedication to seeing people achieve their goals. To God be the Glory!

    I have been a highly satisfied returning customer for over 17 years. They fully provide all the level of services I need, or even want. The staff is consistently friendly, knowledgeable, and committed to me being successively treated. The environment is fun, much like being at a family reunion. Often I see other patients that I know from other organizations in the surrounding communities. I do not like being physically injured or experiencing some physical challenges from aging. When they happen I do experience a sense of peace, even joy, knowing I will be well treated and returned to my active lifestyle. Barkman & Smith are to me a gift from God!

    I walked in and out with a cane on day 1. B&S provided me with 2 sheets of exercises. Next appointment I walked in with no cane. After 2 appointments, and working at home every day, I was able to attend the Aviation MRO. I stayed on my feet for three days. I can’t wait for my therapist to see how much progress I have made just staying with their exercise program. IT’S A MIRACLE!!!! No back surgery for me. I have many more appointments and I am excited to see how much progress I make.

    I will continue recommending Barkman & Smith to people I encounter who are considering where to go for physical therapy. Many years ago my wife went to them, and was exceptionally pleased with the results, and with the manner in which the practice operated. So, in 2016, when I injured my right rotator cuff, Barkman & Smith was the first practice that came to mind. I also was exceptionally pleased with therapy and care I received. I’ve personally recommended Barkman & Smith to several people I’ve encountered at doctor and chiropractor offices. This year (2020) I’ve needed physical therapy twice. Once for needed improvement in my sense of balance, and currently for my right rotator cuff, which has gone from partially torn 4 years ago to fully torn now. Their team of physical therapists are all first rate team players. I could go on and on regarding the effective, respectful care I’ve received, but perhaps I already have. For me the full effectiveness of Barkman & Smith Physical Therapy is captured in the simple sign over the front office reception window, "The honor for any healing which may occur here is offered to Jesus Christ.” And that is as preachy as it gets, unless you ask.

    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!!!

    This staff is without doubt one of the best in the DFW area. Your health and progression is the ONLY goal they have. You become a family member from day one and you are treated that way through out your recovery. Thank you very much.

    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!
