I was referred to him by my OB for pregnancy related headaches and hip pains. He had warm, sweaty hands that were sticky when he put them on my face, and spat when he spoke while talking over me (landed on my face, thank you very much). That was enough to put me off going back. But I also didn't feel like his treatment that visit was especially effective -- ie massage or stretching that wasn't quite hitting the right spot. I ended up at a different physical therapist that seemed more professional and with whom I felt a difference right away.
