I completed a six week internship with RMPT, part of which I was with Rob in the Loveland office. Rob is an extremely knowledgeable, professional, and caring DPT. I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning the trade from him. I highly recommend this office for your physical therapy needs. -Chelsey, Loveland (Google Review 5stars)
