“A truly good person with healing hands”

After a serious car accident resulted in knee and hip injuries, my internist referred me to Renée. I was in tremendous pain and had never had physical therapy before and I was very anxious. Renée’s warmth, calm professionalism and confidence reassured me immediately. I left after that first session realizing I had met someone extraordinary, a truly good person with “healing hands.” 

My orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Robert Klapper has referred me to Renée after both my knee surgeries. Her great knowledge and skill has ensured two smooth recoveries. I have now worked with Renée on and off for about five years. She is meticulous and totally committed in every session. I would never consider going to anyone else and I recommend her to everyone I know.

Dave is head and shoulders above the others.”

Initially, I was referred to Dave by my neurosurgeon, Robert Bray, M.D., following my cervical laminectomy and foramentomies in 2003. Over the past several years, I have had numerous musculoskeletal problems that have required physical therapy. I have been treated by some of the best Physical Therapists both in Los Angeles and Boston, all highly recommended, all with excellent credentials. Dave is head and shoulders above the others. He is simply the best Physical Therapist that I have ever encountered. His initial evaluations are comprehensive, and he is involved in all aspects of the recovery process. Dave provides an extensive program involving strengthening and balance, massage and trigger point release as needed, and guidance to ensure that all exercises and stretches are being done correctly. And during the entire process, Dave provides humor and encouragement along with his encyclopedic knowledge of exercise physiology and technique. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

With Dave and company I feel safe.”

I had neck surgery in 2000 for bone spurs in my left C5-6 foramen. Dave Fabrizio got me through my recovery, and has kept me pain-free while doubling my strength and mobility. With Dave and company I feel safe. After surgery, nothing is more important than that trust. And trust me, I’ve had my share of bad therapists in the past to know the difference.

Simply put: David Fabrizio is the best.”

As a former athlete, I am very familiar with the world of physical therapy as I have been treated for far too many injuries in my time and met countless dedicated therapists. Simply put: David Fabrizio is the best. He has helped me recover from a number of surgical procedures, as well as a litany of weekend warrior complaints. There's no question that I couldn't function properly without him!

“Renee put me back together, and I’m golfing again!”

When a freak slip-and-fall turned me into an instant invalid, my doctor sent me to Renee, his top pick in physical therapists. With her sweet voice, magical hands, technical precision and absolute determination, Renee put me back together, and I’m golfing again! Thank you Renee!

“…he was able to pinpoint the problem - something doctors had not been able to do”

Tomas is a fantastic PT with excellent people skills. When I first came to Tomas I had chronic neck issues for over 9 months. Through a series of evaluation and therapy he was able to pinpoint the problem - something doctors had not been able to do - so I am now pain free. Very few people take so much pride in their work.

“I tell everyone of my story and how one man changed my life for the better.”

I have run marathons, done triathlons, and was a world class surfer. About four years ago I developed plantar fasciitis. All of my physical activity stopped and I couldn't walk for any amount of long distance. I went to three different podiatrists and two orthopedic surgeons and none of them helped. Two recommended surgery, and everyday I would work through my pain...trying to delay the surgery. Finally before the birth of my daughter, I randomly went to Martin. Within the first visit he diagnosed my problem and I immediately had relief. Within weeks I was walking pain free...and within a few short months I was running, and back to the physical life I had before. The best thing for me is that I can now walk my daughter around my neighborhood. I just recently returned from a trip in China where I climbed the Great Wall. There isn't a day that goes by that I'm not thankful for meeting Martin. My only regret is that I wish I had met him sooner. He's the best, and I send everyone I meet with a problem to him, including my own father, who he helped as well. I tell everyone of my story and how one man changed my life for the better. Thank you Martin!

“Having Dave's expertise as a resource in rehabilitating these injuries has been a game changer for me in every way.”

I've known Dave Fabrizio for close to 7 years. I've been fortunate enough to have his help in finding a solution to a couple of shoulder and ankle injuries. Joint injuries can often times be a frustrating riddle. Having Dave's expertise as a resource in rehabilitating these injuries has been a game changer for me in every way.

Not only is he one of the most insightful PT's I've ever worked with, but his facility is a state of the art space for truly comprehensive healing, training and preventative care. If the coffee wasn't so awful, I'd never leave.

“In fact I have no doubt that had I gone to him earlier I would have avoided 3 of the last surgeries I had.”

I am an eye surgeon and a tennis player. I had seven spine surgeries. After my last surgery I asked for a recommendation to a good physical therapist. My doctor recommended David Fabrizio. This is the best thing that ever happened to me. I have been going to David for 4 years now and have no back pain and play tennis 3 days a week. His therapy has been as important if not more important than all my previous surgeries. In fact I have no doubt that had I gone to him earlier I would have avoided 3 of the last surgeries I had. I now also have both neck and shoulder issues which David has taken care of without the need for medication. If you have a back, neck or shoulder problem I would highly recommend David. Seeing him could be the best decision you have ever made.

“[David] is top notch in his field bringing many different aspects of expertise and professionalism to the table.”

Because I have a history of many years of sport`s activities and injuries, David has had to bridge the gap between physical therapy and fitness training looking to keep me in top form to allow me to continue pursuing my sport passions. As anyone who works with David quickly learns, he is top notch in his field bringing many different aspects of expertise and professionalism "to the table." In addition to his myriad of PT expertise, what sets him apart "from the crowd" is his compassion, likeability and thoroughness which he brings each and every time I see him. Working with David one can`t help but get caught up in his contagious enthusiasm and personal touch. He has the uncanny ability to make every session upbeat and always leaves me feeling better. Even with the kibbutz there is no slacking off. I never leave feeling cheated, he always delivers 150%!

Fabrizio Physical Therapy has literally changed my life.”

Fabrizio Physical Therapy has literally changed my life. Incorporating David’s techniques into my daily routine has allowed me to continue my very active lifestyle.  I have learned so much over the past twenty years about the importance of stretching and icing and how this reduces muscle pain, headaches and tightness. If I practice what he preaches, I live happily ever-after!  If I don’t, I am absolutely miserable.

The knowledge, expertise and experience that David and his therapists have obtained throughout the years is invaluable. I have enormous trust and respect for David and appreciate him greatly. His passion for his work has no boundaries because he is so dedicated and committed to his patients. Whenever I over-train or have an injury, David and his therapists are my Humpty Dumptys…they put me back all over again!

As it was said back in the day… I would rather fight than switch!

“David Fabrizio is more than a physical therapist – he's a genius in hiding.”

David Fabrizio is more than a physical therapist – he's a genius in hiding. More than once, David has worked magic on my shoulder and lower back – diagnosing my ailments with pinpoint accuracy, then designing a treatment plan that alleviated all of my complaints. It's no joke – I call this guy Mr. Miyagi – and I cannot imagine my life without him.

“...if i had met David early enough, I could've avoided at least three surgeries.”

I don't know how else to say it... without David Fabrizio I don't think I would've been able to get through all my back problems the last couple years. I've had five back surgeries and I honestly believe that if i had met David early enough, I could've avoided at least three surgeries. We've all heard that having surgery is sometimes only half of the fix and that the other half is having a good physical therapist. I have come to believe that having a good therapist is most of the fix. I found that fix in David Fabrizio. I am completely comfortable using any of the therapists at Fabrizio Physical Therapy. They all take excellent care of me and my needs and have me on the road to having a healthy back.

“I couldn't be happier with my experience at Fabrizio”

My PT Bart has really gone above and beyond for me.  He's a very good listener and does not jump to conclusions -- he really takes his time to find out where the pain is coming from and how to best treat it.

I have had this same issue with my neck for several years and I'm finally getting some real relief, I couldn't be happier with my experience at Fabrizio. If I could give Bart more than 5 stars I would.

“a preventive strategy that's allowed me to do any sport"

Where would I be without Fabrizio? Probably still hunched over, a spasmodic, sniveling heap on the floor, unable to walk, work or do any sport again. After a violent and stupid accident involving the picking up of a shoe, my therapist, Michael, gave me the tools to heal, change, resume with a new consciousness, and a preventive strategy that's allowed me to do any sport, and pick up any footwear. Thank you, Fabrizio Physical Therapy

“Through a proven, systematic regimen, you will quickly re-build strength and agility.”

While the physical therapy process can at times be both daunting and frustrating, Mike's encouraging approach to rehabilitation rapidly abolishes those very typical emotions. With Mike, patients feel like they truly have a partner working with them throughout their difficult time. Through a proven, systematic regimen you will quickly re-build strength and agility, overcoming obstacles at each stage of recovery. Mike will help you establish and achieve goals, understand the purpose of each exercise and update your surgeon with meticulous detail regarding progress – all of which is seemlessly accomplished with a terrific attitude. I have recovered significantly faster than expected as a direct result of Mike's work.

"Before I met David Fabrizio I had lived with daily neck pain.”

Before I met David Fabrizio I had lived with daily neck pain. It appeared that I would have to live with this pain on an ongoing basis or have neck surgery. After working one on one with Dave, I began to integrate his advice with regard to posture, strength training and stretching into my daily routine. His knowledge, upbeat attitude and good old fashioned caring inspired me to make the lifestyle changes needed and to do the work with him to achieve a pain free life. I can honestly say that Dave Fabrizio changed
my life!

“I was desperate to relieve the excruciating pain that had benched me from playing soccer”

I was desperate to relieve the excruciating pain that had benched me from playing soccer for two months when I was referred to Martin. I was used to playing soccer at least three times a week. I didn’t realize how badly my lower back and legs were because I was masking the pain with pain killers. I couldn’t walk, sit or move without feeling like my body would literally fall apart. My doctor diagnosed me with a problem in the right ITB but could only remediate the pain with prescriptions.

In the first visit with Martin, he properly diagnosed the source of the problem almost immediately. He informed me that my body was not properly conditioned to deal with the intensity of the sport and other activities. A weak core, specially my lower back, was causing my body to over-compensate in other areas. He immediately started applying his expertise with successful results. I was back playing soccer after only two days of getting treatment. As of now, my mobility and strength are beyond what I expected and I’m enjoying playing my favorite sport.

…within a few sessions I was able to cancel a scheduled epidural injection because of the amazing improvement.”

I was referred to Fabrizio Physical Therapy by one of the most renown orthopedic clinics in Southern California. I have been treated by Tomas Abraham, PT , and the results have been remarkable. I was in tremendous pain after being hit by a forklift at work. The injuries were severe and I had undergone several surgeries. Mr. Abraham immediately addressed the sources of the pain, and within a few sessions I was able to cancel a scheduled epidural injection because of the amazing improvement.

With previous physical therapists, results were short-term. I am happy to report that has not been the case since Tomas Abraham has treated me. I am now free of the major discomfort and stiffness that had destroyed my mobility. The improved circulation and flexibility have allowed healing, rather than just temporary relief.

I highly recommend Mr. Abraham and Fabrizio Physical Therapy. The courtesy, response and service by this clinic is outstanding. In my case, this has required dealing with OWCP. Fabrizio's has handled this with ease and efficiency.

I have been seeing PT Jennifer Payne at Fabrizio for the last couple of weeks, and my recovery has COMPLETELY turned around.

In December I had knee replacement surgery from Dr. Robert Klapper.  It was my 2nd one in 8 months.  Dr. Klapper highly recommended Fabrizio PT for my recovery.  I had received treatment at another PT location for my 1st surgery, but I wasn't very pleased with my results.

I have been seeing PT Jennifer Payne at Fabrizio for the last couple of weeks, and my recovery has COMPLETELY turned around.  Jennifer is awesome and very dedicated to her work.  She is calm and patient, and has given me the most amazing tips that I can use to further my recovery process at home.  I am so happy with Jen, and I look forward to working with her after I return to work in March.

I highly recommend Fabrizio to anyone looking for a PT facility.  Rachel was so helpful with getting my insurance set up, and the entire staff is kind and friendly. The parking facility is easy to get in and out, which is important when you don't have a lot of time to search for parking.  It is exceptionally clean, and I like how the rooms are private and the gym has state of the art equipment. (5-STAR service for sure).

To my delightful suprise, after about 2 months I was way beyond my pre-surgery strength and feeling the best I had in nearly two decades.

After 15 years of back pain I underwent spinal surgery for a complete disc replacement.  The team at Fabrizio (I worked with Bart who was amazing) took a very hands on approach to rebuild my function and strength.  To my delightful suprise, after about 2 months I was way beyond my pre-surgery strength and feeling the best I had in nearly two decades. I have seen dozens of PTs over the years and Fabrizio's approach and execution are the best anywhere.

Today I am back at my gym, pain free.

Early this year I somehow injured the upper part of my left arm while working out. I was hoping the pain (not terrible, but it was uncomfortable) would go away...Two months went by, and it had not improved. That's when I realized that I had to have a specialist to fix it. I found out that just walking distance from were I live, I could go to Fabrizio Physical Therapy. Everyone was professional and charming. Bart Drewniak and I met twice a week for almost three months, and he was extremely helpful alleviating and working on my injury. In addition, he found out that I had some arthritis developing on my wrists, (I thought the pain I had on and off on my wrists was because I did the wrong movement while working out at my gym) and he taught me some great exercises to combat it. Bart would spend the first time of my visit massaging and treating the areas that needed to be healed, and later we'd go to the very nice gym area, where he taught me how to slowly go back to do exercises and stretching to improved my arm (and wrists). Finally I was going out of the country and I wasn't going to have access to sessions and a gym, and he gave me a rubber band and taught me exercises I could do while I was away. Today I am back at my gym, pain free. I highly recommend Bart and Fabrizio Physical Therapy.

Not only is my knee recovered, Beverly worked with me to correct poor habits I had developed over time to compensate for my injured knee.

I re-aggravated an old skiing injury and a friend recommended Fabrizio Physical Therapy.  I worked with Beverly and her assistant Joey, twice a week for three months. Not only is my knee recovered, Beverly worked with me to correct poor habits I had developed over time to compensate for my injured knee. Everyone at Fabrizio PT is thoughtful, caring, patient and friendly. They went out of their way to work around my very busy work schedule and were flexible in scheduling when I had to travel. Most important, Beverly really listened to me, asked good questions, gave meaningful advice and never lost her sense of humor!  She and Joey are a good team pushing me to set greater limits, encouraging me and supporting my efforts all along the way. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

He has helped me with the management of and relief from acute pain (low back and neck), guided me through customized strengthening programs and returned me to the activities I most enjoy (and overdue).

I have been David Fabrizio's patient with respect to numerous sports related injuries (golf, tennis, surfing, skiing) on and off for approximately three years. Without exception, he has provided me with truly extraordinary care.  His initial evaluation was the most thorough and professional I have ever experienced; having visited numerous physical therapists since my collegiate volleyball days at USC. David's approach to healing is really quite exceptional. He has helped me with the management of and relief from acute pain (low back and neck), guided me through customized strengthening programs and returned me to the activities I most enjoy (and overdue).  His technical skills and treatment protocol coupled with his positive attitude and truly caring nature are really unparalleled.

The process of recovering from injury can take time. Often I would find myself disenchanted, depressed and frustrated. David recognizes that the approach to healing requires addressing not just the physical issues but the associated psychological demons that accompany them. I have spoken with many of David's patients as we rehab together in David's gym. Suffice it to say he is revered as a healer.

Since David's lovely wife, Rachel, has taken over the administrative duties of David's practice my experience at Fabrizio Physical Therapy has been made even better. My appointments are made timely, conveniently and efficiently. Rachel truly cares about the well being of David's patients. (And by the way), the physicians that refer to David are among the best in their respective areas of specialization.
