I have been to a handful of other rehab facilities in the Rochester area and was very pleased with yours. It was very warm and inviting, yet modern. I think everyone at St. John's is doing an awesome job -- keep up the great work. Emily, representative for St. John's rehabilitation client

Most times all you hear about upon someone’s discharge are the bad experiences they endured during their stay. I would return in a minute, if I had to for more rehab. You should be commended for such a well run establishment, from the social worker on the floor managing your case to all those involved with your stay. Nothing but high marks from me, thank you. Tracy, a former St. John's rehabilitation client

The physical therapy was phenomenal! Completed in three weeks what would usually take six weeks. Great physical therapists! A former St. John's rehabilitation client
