My experience with Physiocomestoyou has been very positive. My initial inquiry was responded to promptly and efficiently; and a visit arranged very quickly. My therapist is very helpful and after two sessions, I am already feeling better. As I am working full time, having home visits is extremely convenient and has saved me a lot of hassle. I would definitely recommend your services and staff as they are helpful, convenient and efficient.
