“Helbert, Andreas & Beverly at First Option are really, caring, compassionate and just plain wonderful! Beverly worked around appointment times for my elderly dad. Helbert and Andreas’ physical therapy regiment was exactly what he needed, they really motivated him, while being careful due to his age and at the end we could see an improvement.”

“Top Notch PT !! After being advised by a surgeon that I needed surgery for my Frozen Shoulder, I came to First Option. Helberts advised he could help me get back to normal or close to normal mobility. And he did !!!!! I’m thrilled and am now enjoying golf and an active lifestyle I move to Florida for. Beverly and the entire office staff was always professional and friendly. Thank you so much again Helberts !!!!!”

“Halberts Tambley and his team have given me physical therapy treatment on three occasions. Pain issues have always improved and mobility has improved. This is a small practice. They offer excellent care. I recommend them without hesitation.”

“I was sent to this office by my physician and I am very glad I went. Every staff member has treated me kindly and professionally, but the most important part is that I began to feel better and heal almost immediately. If you need physical therapy this is the place for you.”

“This is to compliment Helberts Tambley and his staff at First Option Physical Therapy. I had Helberts for more than 3 years. I have multiple sclerosis and have had PT at First Option many times. The PT I received has helped me and my condition greatly. I would highly recommend First Option PT to anyone for their therapy needs.”

“I’m very happy with the help from First Option PT. They helped my shoulder last winter when I was down south. Top notch!! It was professionally done & no waiting around. Super friendly & even some whistling going on in the AM. I’m guilty and need to keep up with my exercises.”
Betty L.

“This being my first experience with physical therapy I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I must say that the entire team at First Option put me at ease from the start. I received treatments for spondylosis of the spine in a professional, respectful, and caring way from both Helberts and Andreas. The receptionist, Beverly, was very helpful with booking my appointments and providing insurance information. I would recommend Helberts and First Option PT to anyone in need of physical therapy.”

“First Option gave me my life back. First time in 8 months with no pain! Courteous and professional were the whole staff. I have recommended them to many.”

“I was recommended to First Option Physical Therapy by a physician at Sarasota/Venice Arthritis Center. My husband and I both found their therapy at First Option to be very helpful and we were given exercises to do at home. We’re now continuing therapy with a Balance Disc acquired through First Option. We would have no hesitation in recommending Helberts Tambley and his staff.”
Rosemary J.

“First Option PT is the greatest! While visiting Venice, Fl, my Dr. recommended PT, Beverly, the office staff, made sure that I got an appointment promptly and checked with my insurance company. Andreas helped me so much. His approach to PT is excellent and I could see improvement in my situation. I appreciate all that the staff did to accommodate my needs.”

“This whole office is so prompt, professional and efficient in the way everything is handled. Helberts treats every part of the body with such expertise and great hands. All better after a few treatments.”
Mary L.

“Being a snowbird, I contacted First Option as soon as I arrived in Venice in January. I had been dealing with some major back issues and PT was prescribed by my doctor in Ohio. I am so glad that this was my first call. The entire staff at First Option gets an A+ rating from me. Sessions were handled in a first class, professional manner. Everyone took the time to discuss how I was feeling at each visit and worked each session towards a pain-free back. I have finished my sessions with them and feel I feel very good now. I continue to do the prescribed exercise daily. Once again, this is a first class firm and worthy of your business. “
