REVIEWS OF Desert Institute of Physical Therapy IN Arizona

Jared Lazerson

Laura Senff

When my surgeon prescribed physical therapy I googled physical therapists, taking into account location, ratings, and reviews. I found DIPT purely by luck, but I have have continued to be impressed throughout the three months I've been in PT. The front office staff are welcoming and always helpful. Tanya has been my primary therapists and I've adored working with her, but the entire team is fantastic. With the help of the DIPT staff I've recovered well ahead of schedule and exceeded my surgeon's expectations. I highly recommend DIPT and Tanya in particular!

Gary Londer

Fabulous service from the moment I scheduled my first appointment! I was welcomed by the front office and the therapy I received was professional and the best I have ever received. The staff was warm and extremely knowledgeable. I had severe neck pain upon entering the clinic and on my last appointment I left virtually pain free. I am so enormously grateful to the entire staff for helping me get back into my active life.

Bonita Che

At the age of 29, I underwent a L4-5 fixation surgery. I came to Robb at DIPT after moving to Phoenix. I talked to Robb about my desire to be pain free and return to my active lifestyle. For 3 months, Robb treated me with manual therapy and a exercise program. Today I'm feeling confident about my body and myself. I have started having fun in life (hiking with friends; travelling with my husband in the country and internationally). I never thought I would be able to accomplish this much! DIPT is also fun. The staff sees me as a friend, not a patient. They really cheered up my spirits! I highly recommend DIPT!

B Kaple

I have been a patient of Dr. Robb Blackaby's for the past couple of months for my lower back pain. He and his staff were able to get me back to feeling like myself again. They taught me the correct way to move in my everyday life. And also great exercises to do at home or the gym to help prevent future episodes with my back. Invaluable! Thanks Dr. Robb & staff!

Bonita Kuettner

Dr Robb is top of the class! Techs are caring and helpful. Everyone is friendly and accommodating

Erin Masse

My entire experience at DIPT was fantastic. The front desk, staff, and therapists were friendly, caring, and encouraging. Robb was exceptional and every therapist made coming each week incredibly enjoyable. I felt supported throughout the entire process and would recommend them to anyone.

Deborah Molodofsky

Robb is excellent! I came from NY to continue physical tgerapy for a violin related neck injury. I am leaving 80% better. I feel very fortunate to have been here and have made significant improvement in a relatively short time. Also, the exercise staff do a very focused and helpful job. Highest recommendation! Deborah

Teri Allan

I had excellent care at Desert Institute of Physical Therapy! I made progress and had all the instruction and care necessary to progress to where I needed to be! I would highly recommend these therapists to anyone!! This is a wonderful place!!

Mahsa Dehghan

Highly re-commanded. my experience with Rob and his staff was awesome. I had a sever Herniated Disk. After my surgery, I couldn't move my body at all. Rob with his magical work and his assistants helped me to recover myself easily. now I can tell I am almost 100% recovered. everyone who works there, are friendly and professional. However I had to drive at least half an hour to get there, but If I need Physical Therapy again, I will choose them again. Thanks Rob and DIPT!

Susan Richardson

My experience with Rob and the Desert Institute of Physical Therapy was EXCELENT! Rob and all his staff are highly trained, professional and very pleasant. I had a very successful outcome and would highly recommend them!

Maria Ny

Robb is great!

Hope Benne

I came to Desert Institute as a snow bird needing PT for a knee replacement. I can't recommend this practice highly enough. Everyone - receptionists, therapists, and aides - offered exceptionally knowledgeable and personalized service. The therapists have kept up with cutting edge approaches and use the most advanced machines and techniques. I looked forward to my appointments because I felt so welcome and felt like a friend. By the end of my appointments, my knee was much improved. I will always be grateful to the wonderful team at Desert Institute.

John Breslow

I had back surgery and the Doctors said I might never play golf again and some of my activities might be limited. I started working with Robb and his technique was wonderful. After about 90 days, I’m back playing golf and hiking and biking. The staff is warm and friendly. I highly recommend this organization.

Shay Carter

My first experience with Robb was at wakeboarding nationals in Las Vegas. Out of the blue I asked if he would check out my shoulder, and he worked on it for maybe an hour and that night was the first time I could sleep on my side in months. After that I started visiting him at Desert Institute of Physical Therapy and really enjoyed the treatment I received from him and his staff. Both Robb and Ariana have been working on my shoulder and I have noticed a significant reduce in pain and increase in the range of motion. I would highly recommend DIPT to anyone I know!

Stephanie Bergeron

I was impressed by the care and competency of the care providers. All of the staff from Judy who welcomes you, to those who assess, treat, provide reinforcing exercises and manage the office functions are professional and compassionate. Even better, my fit and functionality improved immeasurably.

G. Anderson

I've been coming to DIPT under the care of Chelsea and it's been the best experience. In my first visit I was unable to walk without pain, and after sessions with Chelsea, I'm walking pain free. She was patient, listened well, and very understanding in my recovery! I recommend DIPT, and I was so impressed with the professionalism and expertise of Chelsea! I highly recommend Chelsea and DIPT! The front office employees were also so friendly and accommodating! Thank you for the great care! G. Anderson

Benjamin Joerg

I have been seeing Robb Blackaby, PT for over 2 years and can tell you he’s one of the best in the Valley. I suffer from chronic neck / shoulder issues that Robb and his staff have been able to pinpoint and treat very successfully allowing me to keep doing the activities I enjoy doing. Robb also has the coveted CFMT designation, a beautiful and welcoming location in N Scottsdale and wonderful and and understanding personality - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Linda Van Goor

I highly recommend this location for physical therapy. The staff is very friendly and everyone is so very capable.

Larry Schneider

My wife Nancy and I can’t thank Rob, Dave and their assistants enough. Nancy saw Robb and Dave after surgery on the meniscus of her left knee. The physical therapy produced awesome results. Robb and Dave are very professional and they and their staff showed her many exercises to strengthen her knee, and provided diagrams she could take home. They really know how to rehabilitate the body’s muscle, ligaments tendons etc. I went to see Robb because of a rotator cuff injury, caused by 45 years of drumming. I was pretty certain I would need surgery, but wanted to see if physical therapy could relieve the pain. It so happens, that Robb Blackaby is also a drummer, and he immediately gave me a key recommendation. Make sure your drum throne is set at a height where your hips are higher than your knee or you will lurch forward with a rounded back, instead of sitting back in the chair with your back straight. Really brilliant, and so simple. He massaged and worked the entire area, my shoulder, pecs, traps, neck etc. and at the end of the 10 sessions I was absolutely pain free and remain so. I needed no surgery, no MRI and no down time on my drumming. We can’t say enough about the quality of care given by these guys!

Beth Delk

Definitely recommend Desert Institute of Physical Therapy. Outstanding service from office staff to all therapists. I worked wit Robb for 6 months, after a complete new spine! Excellent!!!


As a medical professional and a business owner I know what it takes to run an efficient office and important reviews are these days . So here it goes . I had my first visit to this office today and it was absolutely a wonderful experience! Dr Blackaby was extremely personable and really took the time to get to know me and the reason for my visit. I never felt rushed even though I was the last patient of the day . I walked in with severe discomfort and left feeling much better after only one visit ! Thanks doc I look forward to continuing my treatments.

For the 5 weeks that I worked with Robb and the rest of DIPT team I was constantly impressed with the commitment they showed in getting my ankle and the rest of my body healthy. Every session with Robb made me feel better physically and excited about the tangible progress I had made since our last one on one. I am so happy one of my friends from ASU referred me to this facility The entire staff is made up of happy and pleasant people intent on getting you better. Working to get my body healthy again is sometimes a daunting task but being greeted by Julie and Karen at the front desk, having the expert Robb’s full attention, and then being encouragingly led through exercises by Aiden made it just a little bit easier. Id recommend the desert institute of physical therapy to anyone trying to restore their bodies to one hundred percent.

Sandy Friend

Desert Institute of Physical Therapy should win an award for the best PT experience in the Valley. I was a PT skeptic until I met the hardworking, professional team here. From the courteous front desk check-in, to the exercise/therapy room staff, this place is absolutely top notch. A special thanks to my awesone therapist Dave Rivera. You are great, Dave!

James Anderson

At age 76 and having been an athlete nearly all my life, I have suffered my share of injuries over the years. As a result, I have had numerous experiences with physical therapy organizations. I can say, without any doubt that my experience at DIPT far surpasses all the other comparable PT that I have had. The principals, the therapists, the administrative staff, and the PT assistants have all bent over backwards to make my recovery greatly exceed even my most ambitious target. The facility, the PT program and the equipment are all first rate. I anticipate I will need PT treatment for a future knee problem, and I will most certainly head right back to DIPT.

Michael Buckmaster

Great and very friendly staff. Helped me recover from my MCL injury.

Dawn Smith

Rob and his crew are exceptional. You will be healed!

Bobette Siegel

The care I received at DIPT was outstanding! Robb and his staff are bso attentive and caring. Their skill is excellent and I know that I will return in the future if I need to. I have had instant relief and highly recommend Robb to anyone seeking relief and expertise..

RHONA goldfarb

THe staff was amazing and I had a full recovery from a bad acl injury and did not need surgery

Roger Ulrich

I have received physical Therapy @ DIPT for 2 different injuries and couldn't be happier with the quality of care, professionalism, and most important the end results. DIPT is directly responsible for me being able to return quickly to work pain free. My family and I will only go to DIPT for therapy. They are truly the best at what they do.

Larry S

I was referred to Robb at Desert Institute of Physical Therapy for a shoulder problem . The orthopedic surgeon who referred me spoke very highly about his dedication and ability. After successfully completing physical therapy I agree completely. Over the years, I have seen various therapists in the Valley for several different problems. Unequivocally, I can say that he is the best therapist I've seen. He and his staff are professional, attentive and extremely knowledgable. At Desert Institute you will receive highly personalized, professional attention from a physical therapist who is truly knowledgeable and devoted.

Bruce Benham

I highly recommend DIPT to anyone in need of physical therapy. I had major back surgery to fuse all of my lumbar joints. Their staff, facility and great concern for my care made a difference and resulted in a very successful and timely recovery. Robb Blackaby is the best PT doctor I have ever known and I wouldn't hesitate to use DIPT again if needed.


Just the right pace after surgery.

Amy Cherundolo

Everyone took excellent care of me. When I arrived initially after a motor vehicle accident, I was in so much pain. Robb has been amazing, and the care I received was priceless. Everyone is professional, and genuinely caring individuals. The environment is therapeutic and promotes good health. They are very accommodating and helpful with scheduling. Because of the trauma, I have to be diligent about exercising daily so I can continue to heal, and they have given me the tools and resources to do that. I feel so much better since my accident! Top notch!!

Pete Charleston

Dr. Blackaby took great care of me! This was the second injury that he has treated for me. His philosophy is to not just heal the injury but to also help to get everybody stronger than they were before. His staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgable and I look forward to going in for treatments. I would recommend Dr. Blackaby to any of my friends!

Suzy Rezac

The level of professionalism at DIPT exceeded my expectations! Both Robb and Dave worked with me for my manual physical therapy. I enjoyed the differences in both of their techniques and attribute their talents to my speedy recovery. I have never had such an extensive surgery with this amount of rehab before. As a Professional Personal Trainer for over 37 yrs, I truly know these Physical Therapists and their educated staff really are top notch! Thank you DIPT for your excellence in my shoulder recovery! I won't hesitate to refer you to my clients and friends.

Ann Stacy

A very well organized and friendly office. Chelsea was an excellent PT; a great listener, very knowledgeable and supportive to the patient. Most importantly I feel great meeting all the goals we established. Thanks Chelsea.
