best group around. – someone told me about kallencal's review and i couldn't believe it. this is a wonderful, caring group. they helped me after i had a car accident with a head injury. polly was totally kind, professional, caring, and healing. she was able to provide very reasonable fees and helped me enormously. i saw her on a regular basis for about a year, after which i've seen her on and off for other issues. she is a wonderful therapist, has great staff, and provides a comfortable, safe environment. she helped me enormously with my injuries.
great establishment. helped a long-standing back problem. clean, quiet, professional. wonderful staff!! – i have had a lower back problem for many years and have been to many practitioners-- chiropractors, p.t.s, massage therapists, etc., and this group was the only one that made substantial inroads into my healing. the place is clean, organized, friendly, and welcoming. they are very reasonable in cost-- in fact, they charged less than many of the competitors. they are highly professional and i would recommend them. have told friends who have also had the same experience with body rehab center. you'd be in good hands to go here.
Best physical therapy anywhere. Highly recommended. Great staff. – polly and her staff are the very best around. i have been a client on and off for a number of years for various issues and she has been professional, kind, &considerate. all local doctors recommend her. i highly recommend body rehab center. it sounds like kallencal has some personal grudge? i am a longterm malibu resident and have never ever heard anything negative about this establishment.
Rip Off – Polly Badt owner of Body Rehab Center does not care about her patients. In fact, she overcharges and is a total rip off. Go anwhere but to her place. Call around and there a better Phycial Therapists in the area. She also attacks her employees. Very scary person.
