    Dr. Nichols is wonderful. I highly recommend him! He helped me with my newborn who was struggling with nursing and bottle feeding. He did a great job of explaining what he was doing and why he recommended certain exercises/activities. He truly understands that such situations can be overwhelming and he knows exhausted parents don't have hours each day to do 20 exercises. He focuses on what is most important to see the progress you need for your little one and he keeps it as simple as possible. Dr. Nichols gave our family great support and I cannot recommend him enough!

    Bryan is a highly experienced PT with a very in depth knowledge of mechanics and inner workings of the body’s musculoskeletal system. He was a god-send for my husband and I and will forever be thankful for all his help.

    Baby and I loved Dr Bryan! We went in for some torticollis (that led to a flat spot) that was diagnosed at baby’s 4 month appointment. We went to a few sessions with Dr Bryan, who helped loosen up baby’s neck - not to mention the helpful advice and practices we could do at home with baby. Baby has now avoided a helmet because of these sessions!

    Bryan was so helpful in loosening up our little guy post-frenectomy. It was also so convenient that he was able to come directly to our home for each session. Our baby is feeding much better, following these treatments!

    I would highly recommend working with Bryan. He was very professional, kind, and helpful and clearly has an impressive understanding of newborn/infant musculature, reflexes, and development. He provided exercises and massages to improve our baby's flexibility and nursing ability. I would definitely call him/work with him again!
