Impressive and professional with exceptional patient communication. My 16 year old son had knee pain for 2 years, saw other physical therapists, and continued with pain and limitation and no improvement. We sought care out of town and went to Clearwater. In one hour Dr. McDowell assessed the problem, clearly communicated to us what was causing the pain, prescribed the fix and detailed the home stretching regimen. My 16 year old is nearly back to normal in one month. He told me the other day he thought he was going to suffer knee pain forever and now he feels great. Thank you, Milica!

I first became a patient at Clearwater Physical Therapy after an ankle surgery left me with nerve issues. I received such excellent care that I’ve continued to use this clinic for 5 years, for an variety of different injuries. Dr. McDowell is very knowledgeable, friendly, and truly cares about the well-being of her patients. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
