What our customers are saying

“I recommend Lauren Atkins and Gainesville Wellness and Performance for any obstacle that is impeding your athletic or everyday movement. I had a 10 year old shoulder injury. The painful shoulder would wake me up at night, wouldn’t allow me to reach behind the car seat to grab the seat belt and would limit anything I tried to do overhead. Lauren masterminded my rehab and I am now 100% pain-free and functional. Lauren is brilliant, funny and just plain awesome!!! Go see her.” - Kellie Jo Dunlap, MMSc, PA-C, LMT
“Lauren is amazing..I came to her for advice and help for my knee. It was replaced over a year before seeing her...but still would only bend 96 degrees. It was difficult to go down stairs, and my leg was painful and swollen a lot. She diligently worked with me..Did a lot of deep tissue work and exercises. Now I can routinely bend it 108 degrees... have mastered stairs ... and am signed up for a bike event. What a difference she’s made” - Sue Kubler
"Not only is Lauren an amazing Physical Therapist, it actually costs me LESS to pay her out of pocket than to go through my insurance. Yes, LESS! Around $40/session less. She has helped me through an ailment, followed up with me, given me great advice. She truly is interested in helping people get better, faster. I can't say enough great things about her, her work, her compassion, and her pricing. Incredible." - Kelly McNeal
