Nicole Hunter was great. She was kind, courteous, supportive, and resourceful. She was very helpful in teaching my 11 year old daughter to use her prosthetic hand. Thank you!


It was recently brought to my attention that I could complete a satisfaction survey for my time spent at MBO. I, unfortunately, suffered a torn bicep over a year ago and I chose MBO for my surgery and rehabilitation. My surgery was completed by Dr. Zambito who did a phenomenal job putting me back together. Thank you Dr. Zambito. My therapy that followed was also a rewarding experience. It started with the front desk staff, specifically, Lynn Gowton. If I had any issues checking in at the kiosk or any billing questions, I was fortunate enough to have met Lynn, who always assisted with a smile. In my experience, at some doctor's offices, staff at the front desk are not accommodating to the patient. This was not the case with Lynn. I thank her for that. Nicole Hunter was my therapist. Nicole was welcoming the first time I met her and clearly explained the goals that I had to meet in the coming weeks. I must say, our sessions were sometimes painful, but Nicole did her job flawlessly and I am now 100% healed and back to working out without limitations. Thank you MBO for your service.


Everyone at MBO Lawrenceville was amazing. Reception quickly started remembering who I was and assisted me when I showed up. Dr. Crivello was knowledgeable and helpful in diagnosing my injury and providing next steps to healing. Nicole provided PT once and was friendly and created great conversation while expanding my PT exercise rather than sticking to what I had already had been doing. Elizabeth was amazing and goes above and beyond what a physical therapist needs to do get their patient healed. She was always friendly, conversational, in a good mood (somehow always!), and extremely aware of my symptoms and progress. She was open to listening about my personal progress and letting me know expectations on timelines and what I could do while recovering. I enjoyed my entire experience going to MBO several times throughout a 2 months or so period.


I just finished therapy at MBO and it was much more than I hoped for. The team at the Langhorne facility were GREAT! They worked so well together and treated so many different injuries. They (Stefanie Morgan, Andrea Perkins and Nicole Hunter) are skilled therapists and handled all the patients with empathy, professionalism and quiet humor. My therapist was Nicole Hunter. I can't say enough good things about her. I came in with a lot of pain and could barely use my arm. Now I'm happy to say my rehab has been amazingly successful. In addition, it was extremely interesting watching Nicole fabricate special splints and molded pieces for her patients' needs. She is very skilled and a real asset to the practice!
