02/18/2017Hope And Grace Recovery Center
After graduating from rehab, I had a friend of mine who referred me to Hope & Grace for IOP & OP, and I am very grateful for the referral. Upon moving into one of their halfway houses, I was required to attend IOP 3x a week either in the morning or in the evening and then OP 1x per week. This option was very convenient as it allowed for flexibility while planning my other responsibilities. They even feed you lunch which I didn't deserve at the time so I was grateful to have food in my stomach. Please understand that this is not a luxury treatment center/ halfway facility. If you think that is what you need to recover then think again. Let's think about where we came from. Do we even deserve anything luxury after what we've done? It's only our lives on the line. Nothing serious. The staff is very professional and understanding because they are also in the program. They understand the needs of us sick people and will do anything in their power to make sure we progress in our recovery. You may hear things differently, but that's because those people weren't ready. I, on the other hand, gave 100% to my recovery and I am standing here 9 months later sober and happy! I loved the staff. Rent is super cheap and allows for flexibility until you land a job. All amenities besides food are supplied in halfway. Toilet paper, kitchen supplies, cleaning supplies, bathroom and laundry supplies, etc. For the price paid to live in this above average apartment, I couldn't have found a better place to recover. I would highly recommend HGR to anyone who is serious about their recovery. Yours Truly,Recovering Alcoholic

Michael Trathen PT and Procare Physical Therapy is by far the best Physical Therapy Clinic in Fort Lauderdale, Fl and the best Physical Therapy Center in Broward County for the that matter. He and his staff have far exceeded my expectations. I have an exercise physiology degree and have been a competitive athlete all my life. I have been dealing with horrible back pain for 3 years. The Doctors wanted to do surgery. I decided to try Physical Therapy first. So, I went to 3 other local PT clinics in the past 2 years, with little to no results. I can honestly say that Michael is the first person to actually sit down with me and go over my MRI's and my diagnosis and explain to me exactly what is wrong. He literally spent 1 hr in his office showing me 3D imagery and models, until I understood. He explored everything about me and my injury to get the best assessment possible for my therapy. He designed a customized treatment plan, just for me. Michael Trathen and his Procare staff are extremely personable, friendly and very professional at the same time. I can honestly say that I am 95% better after only 2 months with Procare. I love seeing and feeling my progress and actually look forward to going in for my sessions. Thank you guys!

“THIS IS NOT THE KIND OF PHYSICAL THERAPY EXPERIENCE HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR!!! Michael Trathen PT actually talks the time to talk to you! Better yet, he listens to you! Coming here has been an incredibly positive experience. Beyond ending my pain, it has taught me so much about my body and how to keep it pain-free.I've had two other experiences with physical therapy, both which basically consisted of the therapist handing me a faded photocopy of stick figures doing exercises and then telling me to go off into a corner to do them.At Procare Physical Therapy, they interviewed me thoroughly about my pain, lifestyle and goals. Then, they created a balanced plan to end my pain and teach me good habits for the future. Two therapists alternated treatment with me, providing hands-on attention and constant communication. For the first time I experienced Craniosacral therapy and the Feldenkrais Method, both of which were revelatory.I hope I never have to go to physical therapy again, but if I do I know exactly where I'm going. I strongly recommend you go there too. Bonus: parking is a breeze and underground. — A. Estrada

I was a college and Olympic alternate soccer player. I have accumulated several nagging painful injuries over the years that have prevented me from performing at my best. I have been to several physical therapy centers around the US and in South Florida over the years. .Michael Trathen and the Procare Staff are by far the most professional, well-organized, and friendly place of all! Michael Trathen PT, is super understanding and knowledgeable of my condition and takes into account every part of my anatomy, from toes to nose,, as he says it. LOL…. He sat down with me for over 1 hour, after a very thorough evaluation and explained to me in detail exactly what was going on with my body. He used animated videos and models to show me everything that was going on. Nobody has ever done this for me! I felt very confident in his hands. But, the true testimonial is that, after 2 months of Therapy, I am not performing at a level fare beyond what I was able to do before and PAIN FREE!! Thank you Michael and the ProCare Staff for taking care of me! YOU HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!

As both I Doctor and a patient I can tell you that Michael Trathen RPT is by far the best PT I have found. He embodies everything you could ask for in a PT. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, and professional. I have been in PT since 1999, for all sorts of injuries (sprained ankle, lower back, upper back, hip, shoulder) on both the West Coast and East Coast- I can state without a doubt -- that Procare Physical Therapy Fort Lauderdale is the best physical therapy out there. Michael is extremely knowledgeable and communicates that knowledge to you, the patient, in whatever dose is right for you (for me, that's big doses). Michael also happens to have a wonderful, positive spirit, which is shared by her upbeat and competent staff. And the facility is bright, sunny, extremely well-equipped, and well-located. You couldn't ask for anything more. I would never go anywhere else other than Procare Physical Therapy.
