Kathleen and her husband love to travel and strive to always stay active. Kat enjoys running, hiking, cycling, backpacking and even dabbles in a little white-water kayaking. She and her husband moved into the Columbia River Gorge to be even closer to the beautiful outdoor adventures that Oregon offers.
Kat is amazing! She has extensive knowledge of the body and and serious physical therapy skills. She has helped me to reduce a substantial amount of chronic pain that I have lived with for years. Highly recommended.Manuel, Aug 01
Kathleen Gendron is an exceptional physical therapist and a great person. Kathleen is caring and compassionate, listens well and has an intuitive touch. When doing body-work she’s able to understand how far/deep to go without inflaming me further. Kathleen is clear in instructions for home exercises also. I am able to understand what I’m doing and what the goal is and how to do them without injury. Lastly, Kathleen is really pleasant and professional to work with. She’s truly the best physical therapist I’ve encountered.Jean, Aug 08
