     Customer Testimonials

I wanted to let you know, how much I appreciated attending PT01 with Dr. Kostopoulos. The clarity, organization and positive way in which he presented the material, helped me to understand it completely. The lab session and lecture part given by Christine, was great! Her knowlege and hands on experience, encouraged me to perform the lab sessions with confidence. Because of such a positive learning experience, I registered for the rest of the seminar series. Thank you again for a great seminar, looking forward to PT2, PT3, PT4, PT5.
Sincerely, Toni Mercogliano, PT
