Fun Facts

I love to ski, shop, eat and listen to live music!


Joy is simply amazing. I am rehabbing from low-back surgery, which in itself is challenging, but during this time I'm experiencing other ailments (neuropathy and mid-back spasms) and Joy just adjusts the moment she arrives for our session. Some days I'm good and ready to go and some days I can barely move but Joy always has something for me to do within my limits. I've had a LOT of PT in my life and Joy is by far the best therapist I've ever worked with. She's amazing.

Joy is fantastic. She pushes you just enough to make you work at the exercise, but not so much that you are uncomfortable. She also explains each exercise and how it is helping. She is also interesting and friendly.

As an elite professional dancer, I have worked with many PT’s over two decades. Dr. Scott is absolutely one of the VERY BEST. She is unassuming- but don’t let the pretty face fool you! She’s an expert innovator, creating exercises that have addressed my specific movement demands, including required range of motion, power and mechanics. She knows how to push me to achieve my best, in every single session. My confidence increases after each visit and for that, Dr. Scott is worth her weight in gold. If you are fortunate enough to work with her, know you are getting the best in the field!
