With the support of Rob, I was able to come back from a shoulder injury early and play my senior season. He also advised me to hold on a recommended surgery and I returned to full health.Matt Hubbard: Former CHS All league/All State Basketball Standout

Rob has taken care of me before and after my knee replacement. The quality of care and compassion I have received from Rob is unsurpassed.  He constantly exhibits a high level of knowledge, courtesy and professionalism toward me. He is quick to see what my needs are and adapts his care plan to achieve the best outcome for me. Our communities are very fortunate to have a Physical Therapist of his expertise attending to our needs.

Rob did an excellent job helping me rehabilitate my knee after ACL surgery through his stellar care, treatment and attention to detail.  He accelerated my healing.  Rob also helped make a difficult situation bearable, and restored my hope in the rehab process.  With his help, my dream of playing collegiate volleyball at a high level was fulfilled!

Rob Sumner and his family have been such a big input in my life. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to have them not only as coaches but as a second family. Rob was always there to help any softball ache or pain. I wouldn’t be where I am as a collegiate athlete without him and his family.
