    1. I have a case of multiple mobility and flexibility issues. I liked how Karlyn was thorough with her assessment in identifying these problems, like no one has in the past. 2. She understood my needs and plans to devise a treatment plan according to my needs and the requirement of the situation.

    I just had my initial assessment with Karlyn last week. She was understanding and attentive, and really took the time to explain the injury and the best treatment plan for the following weeks. More importantly, she is very friendly, lovely to talk to, and just a wonderful person overall.

    I was extremely happy with the level of care and personal attention I was given. Dr. Karlyn was very thorough in explaining everything to me. And I've found the exercise tips that she provided to be very helpful with my recovery.

  • Felt like talking to an extremely knowledgeable long time friend
    Reviewed on April 23rd, 2017  •  Verified patient
    Karlyn is wonderfully approachable and friendly. I felt immediately at ease, which is an accomplishment given my appointment was about pelvic floor pain, specifically vaginal pain during intercourse. I felt safe and heard talking to her about the history of my pain and found her knowledge to be impressive and accessible. Our conversation felt like a friend sharing her expertise rather than a doctor patient diagnosis. Her recommendations were actionable and effective and after one session I'm already feeling a difference. I am looking forward to continued progress.

    I've been seeing Karlyn for the past 3 weeks to treat a running related injury. She's very knowledgeable and caring and really got down to the root of the issue. She took a lot of time to understand my body and help me get back on my feet

    Karlyn was very knowledgeable about treating concussions. I've had severe migraines since my injury a year ago and after my first appointment with Karlyn, the frequency of the migraines have decreased significantly. She was very attentive and friendly and explained her treatment plan clearly.
