What We Do

We strive to provide the highest quality physical therapy services and tailor those services to meet each individual's goals. We provide one-on-one personalized treatment plan to assist in attaining your rehabilitative goals.

UPDATE: We ask that you call the office and avoid coming into the office if you have had any fevers/chills/sore throat/cough or have had exposure to anyone with COVID. This is very important because we have patients with poor immune systems that are at high risk of acquiring COVID.

Dear Patients:

As most of you are aware, over the last several days and weeks we have been learning about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it is impacting our world. At William C. Eves, M.D., Inc. we have one goal that we strive for, and that is to keep you, our patients, and our employees safe. This has been the topic of our planning and conversation and we have implemented several measures to ensure that we do everything possible to reduce the threat of this disease.

Our offices are regularly cleaned and sanitized, but having a greater focus at all locations on disinfecting “high-touch” areas like door handles, doors, sink handles, chairs, tables and counters. Additionally, we have hand sanitizer available, and washrooms for thorough hand washing. WE are closely following the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines and recommendations to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Our employees have been instructed to frequently use antiseptic hand cleaner as well as hand washing per the CDC instructions. We also encourage our patients to do the same. If our employees feel sick or begin running a temperature, they have been instructed to stay home. Similarly, we request that patients who are not feeling well, reschedule their appointments and not come to our clinics while they are ill. Currently, we are limiting the number of patients who enter our clinic. No visitors will be allowed in the clinic. Unless, they are necessary as an interpreter or if a patient requires physical assistance. At the entry of the clinic, we are taking temperatures of every person to ensure no one has a fever.

If our employees become ill, our offices may be functioning with less than optimal staffing: therefore, we request your patience if there are longer than average wait times or other delays. If we have any direct exposure, we will be quarantined for cleaning.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and do all that we can to protect you and our employees. For more information and guidelines on COVID-19, please visit: htps://
