I just wanted to sincerely thank you for the fine Physical Therapy care that you have given to my wife over the years. She is now doing just fine, thanks mainly to you.
I want you to know that there are many local physicians that are saying great things about you -- when I start telling them about you (before I even mention your name) they often interrupt me and say: "Well I feel that Ann Steinfeld is the best trained and most talented Physical Therapist in Southern California -- she really cares about her patients, and, of course, she certainly gets the very best results as well!"
I just feel that you should know this and I want to personally thank you and congratulate you!
Dr. Edward Devlin
We have been patients at Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy since 2005. Our treatment covered several different conditions including injuries, total knee replacements, and scoliosis. Thanks to Ann and her well trained staff, the outcome in all cases was extremely positive. Their advice on how to care for ourselves at home was a big plus. Ann's vast knowledge and professionalism make her a true credit to her field. We highly recommend her facility to anyone needing physical rehabilitation.

As a registered nurse and a patient, I have had many associations and experiences with physical therapists over the last 50 years. I recently completed physical therapy with Ann Steinfeld and her staff, (Eden was my therapist). I had a wonderful experience.....a positive, nurturing environment. Very knowledgeable, professional and one on one individual attention with the therapist If you want the BEST of the BEST, go to Ann Steinfeld and Associates. 5 Stars!!!!!
Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy is the place to go, especially if you have had back surgery and neck pain. The staff is professional and helped me a lot. The rooms were very clean and I felt comfortable learning the exercises and the staff encouraged me to keep up with all the exercises after my visits.
The full recovery from a total knee replacement is a team experience between the surgeon, physical therapist and the patient. At Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy, their professional, experienced and trained staff is prepared to not only meet the surgical recovery goals, but also the healing discovery opportunities encountered during therapy. With both knees replaced, my discovery opportunity was the correction of poor walking habits. In addition to muscle strengthening, Ann's team added proper gait training. Years of pain-ridden walking are being corrected through re-loading of body weight off arthritic joints to previously underutilized muscles. I recommend Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy for those who not only want to recover from total knee replacement, but also desire to regain natural and correct mobility and the restoration of lost and enjoyed activities.

I just want to say thanks to Ann Steinfeld, Jasmine Leibel and the entire staff at Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy for making a big difference in my life.
Ten years ago I had an auto accident, severely injuring my back. I went to many doctors, and even pain management before finally being referred to Ann Steinfeld. I am very active athletically, so with an injured back I am susceptible to flare ups. Ann and her staff are always able to correct my back and SI (sacro-iliac) joint issues. I recently had major surgery to correct the years of cumulative damage from the accident as well as being active with a damaged back. Again Ann and her staff have me on my way back to the gym and cycling along the Huntington Beach bike path.
They are always up on the leading edge physical therapy procedures and also think out of the box based on feedback as to my progress. I have never seen a more proactive therapy group. Again, thank you for giving me back my active life!
Dear Ms. Steinfeld,
I am writing to let you know how much Lisa Smith did to help me improve after my right hip replacement.
In addition to the hip challenge, my left ankle is fused. The hip and ankle were contributing to my walking knock kneed. What a challenge! Lisa gave me exercises to help build the muscle and tendon going from the knee up the side of my thigh. Even though I have more to accomplish, it is because of her ability to see what was needed, beyond the obvious, that I have made great progress.
From what I observed, she is representative of your entire staff.
When I came to Ann Steinfield Physical Therapy, I was in the worst pain that I have ever experienced. I was greeted by a warm face at the desk (Diane) that checked me in and let the team know that I arrived, so that I could be taken back on time. I was evaluated and treated by Dr. Jasmine Leibel, who was extremely compassionate, knowledgeable. She asked about and heard my goals.
I was impressed with Jasmine's knowledge, her ability to transfer information into terms that I could understand and her ability to create a treatment program that allowed me to reach my goals quickly. I am grateful for the extraordinary care and feel confident that I am strong and will live a healthier life as a result of the program that was created for me during my time at the clinic and the program for me to continue after completing my treatment. I would highly recommend Ann Steinfield for treatment of any orthopedic injuries.
I had physical therapy sessions at Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy from March 2, 2009 to April 29,2009. I believe that Ann's approach to therapy is the best of all of the therapy groups I have used and they have been numerous over the years. If her therapy represented the typical therapist, I wouldn't take the time to recommend her.
Ann gives individual attention during the sessions and performs some hands-on massage as well. The results of therapy were excellent and I'd like to recommend Ann to you for any of your patient's future needs. Please let anyone else in your group who would refer patients know about Ann. As you can see, she practices in Orange County and I have included some of her business cards. She also has a very good website she listed below:

Thank you and I'll be in touch in the future.
Five years ago I had a difficult and long recovery on my Achilles heel. The injury and surgery were almost painless. However, my physical therapy was one of the most uncomfortable experiences I've ever encountered.
I don't worry about many things. However, the previous experience made me concerned about how my physical therapy would be after my recent meniscus repair in June 2008. I expected ridiculously difficult and painful therapeutic exercises, insensitive and burned out therapists, and a company that would try to milk extra and unnecessary sessions far after my recovery.
Wow...what a nice surprise. I experienced courteous and professional personnel, with knowledgeable and friendly trainers. I felt like I was cared for and that you and your staff were truly concerned about me and my physical recovery. Every session was fun, because I enjoyed watching myself progress without pain, and with professionals that knew what they were doing. I had confidence that all would go well and it did. I would recommend your company to anyone that needs physical therapy. Thanks so much for what you've done. You've reinforced my feelings about physical therapy. It's truly appreciated and I'm especially grateful.
Now that I am healed once again, it is with considerable pleasure that I write to commend you for the excellent physical therapy that you provided to me in the past four years. Prior to this time, I had treatment by numerous physical therapists. None of these people, employed by different agencies, rose to your level of skillfulness.
I am so impressed with your detailed knowledge of not only the muscular and skeletal systems, but if the total body and its functions. Your evaluation of my first disability presented for treatment gave me immediate confidence regarding your plan for treatment leading to wellness. Each time I arrive with a different physical disability, I leave in one or two months a fully functioning person. Your friendly, caring attitude inspires and motivates me throughout the sessions.
Smoothly operating physical therapy sessions are essential to the recovery of the clientele. Your sessions and your entire business operations are exemplary in setting high standards for similar enterprises.
I have the pleasure in knowing that you are making an excellent contribution to improving the quality of life for your clients.

Ann Steinfeld and her colleagues brought me back my good health quickly. I went to Ann with two sports injuries. A strained muscle in my right hip made me limp and it hurt when I walked up stairs. A strained hamstring muscle in my left leg made stretching painful. I feared that the injuries might not be curable because of my age - I'm 73 years old. But in just three weeks of therapy and home exercises I was free of pain and had full action in both hips and legs. I will always remember the very pleasant, helpful and patient attitude of Ann and her colleagues as they treated me and taught me the special home exercises that were an important part of my recuperation. Thank you, all!
Costa Mesa, CA December 2006
Having gone to several physical therapy facilities in the area, I had failed to achieve relief for an automobile accident injury. When I was referred to Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy, I began to improve. The dedicated therapists' and aides' one-on-one, hands-on approach had great results. I was never left on my own to go through my exercises. The staff was always there checking and monitoring my progress. Over the past five years, I have returned for various ailments and have always received the same high quality treatment with marked improvement each time. Thank you.
I've had back, ankle, Achilles tendon and a shoulder problem, that Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy have helped me through. I came to the office at the urging of my husband, Tom. He has had both shoulders and right knee worked on. We have enjoyed coming to therapy, partly because we needed the help, but could receive help at any facility. Mostly, what sets the office apart from other former experiences is the warm and friendly atmosphere. Everyone we have dealt with has been knowledgeable, caring, helpful, and capable...we have been able to build back muscle tissue, to repair, or compensate for damage. As you know, we have recommended you to others, and to our doctors, and will continue to do so. Thank you, for both of us.

I came to Ann Steinfeld Physical Therapy after several months of growing pain in the middle back, which radiated down through my right arm, forearm and wrist. Tom Goodheart, MD, my primary care physician, has a lot of respect for Ann and had referred me to her. Within three sessions over the period of a week, the intensity of the pain had subsided and after about 18 sessions was completely gone. Over this two month period, Ann and her staff instructed me in appropriate exercises and encouraged me to join a gym, etc.
I am impressed by my care...but also was impressed with the results that many other patients were obviously achieving during my time with her and with the overall effectiveness of her staff. This is my first personal experience with PT, and I am now a total convert to the science as administered by this profession. The practice is run with great respect to the patient...with appointments always on time, the therapies are always flexed to meet patient's changing needs, and the sessions always staffed with PT and assistants to keep the program efficient as well as effective. As a businessman, I realize that this is not an easy achievement! And it was a fun group to boot! Thank you.
