Mindy joined CPPT just one year ago after graduating from Bryant and Stratton.  When you walk into our office you will see her friendly and inviting smile.  She has brought to our team her bright and positive attitude making paperwork and scheduling more enjoyable.   Mindy is ready to answer any question and spend as much time on the phone with each client as needed.  She is our Medicare and Worker’s Compensation Specialist.  In her free-time she loves spending her time with her three granddaughters camping or at the beach.

When I first came to this office, I could barely move, was unable to sit, and was generally uncomfortable with low back pain from a herniated disc. Kristy was absolutely fantastic! She developed a program of treatment that was so helpful for not only the immediate problem, but for long term. Kristy has hands from heaven! Her manual techniques were so incredible, I will surely miss them.
