What Dan's patients say...

This office experience deserves its 5 stars and then some! All staff I encountered were professional and helpful … Dan MacKinnon, my physiotherapist, was knowledgeable and displayed genuine concern for my progress.  He made me feel comfortable, through great personal chats, and successful through his positive, encouraging comments. I totally recommend Cornerstone Physiotherapy!

What Dan's patients say...

Amazing experience at Cornerstone Physio! Dan is very knowledgeable, caring and made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. He helped reduce the back pain I was experiencing to none at all and created a plan to help me achieve the physical state I was in prior to injury. Additionally, the ladies at the front desk were always very friendly. I would recommend Cornerstone to anyone.

What Dan's patients say...

I had vertigo for 7 weeks, it was pretty brutal. Then I found out about Cornerstone. 1 visit with Dan and I’m completely cured. He spent the time to correctly diagnose the problem and fixed it in a matter of minutes. I don’t leave a ton of glowing over the top 5 star reviews…this one is earned!

I have been recuperating from a knee replacement. It has been a great experience. The Clinic goes to great lengths to operate during Covid 19. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. My Physiotherapist Daniel put me on an exercise program and stretching my leg and knee. My Surgeon has been very impressed. He says what your physiotherapist is doing is really helping. I would highly recommend them.
