"For the past year, Paul has been an invaluable part of my treatment for Parkinson's Disease. His very thorough approach to treating me always incorporates the latest and best therapies for my specific balance, endurance, and strengthening exercises. While I have excellent knowledge and advice from OHSU, it would mean very little unless someone of Paul's caliber could translate that knowledge and advice into daily and always progressive therapies to handle the many challenging components of this disease. Paul asks questions and listens intently to my answers. It is a privilege to have Summit always on my side and always there for me. Laura could not be a better office manager and astute care coordinator. They work extremely well together as a top-notch team--hats off to you both! - 10/13/21"

"Paul was very helpful in many ways. He showed me multiple exercises to help keep my shoulder and neck healthy. I went in for neck pain and stiffness and had immediate positive results after being treated by him. I liked the fact that he was the one treating me throughout my treatment and that I was not handed off to someone else for parts of the treatment session. He answered all of my questions and seemed genuinely concerned about my well being. Laura the office manager was also very accommodating and helpful. I would recommend Summit Physical Therapy to family and friends.- 10/14/20"

"I cannot recommend Paul Kane enough! I had a very painful and debilitating health issue in my inner ears that no one seemed to be able to help me with. Paul researched my situation in his off-job hours because he cares so much. By the fourth visit, I was feeling good again. What a difference that was--all due to Paul's determination to help me become pain free. His commitment and dedication to each of his patients is remarkable. He is a world-class PT--with expertise in all aspects of the body, AND he is very comfortable to work with. He earned my trust and respect. I highly recommend him to anyone with a health challenge! - 09/22/20"

"After a severe leg injury, Paul has helped me find my way back to be able to walk, though with a walker and still more work to do. He guides me with exercises that stretch and strengthen the muscles until I discover I can trust my own strength and balance to progress and attempt to walk with a cane. Paul assists me through encouragement; he challenges me while still sympathizing with me. I've delayed writing this, because it's not easy to write about my journey. But it is important to say that Paul shown me that I can do this, that I can believe in my ability, and I am now stronger in body and courage. I am grateful for his kindness and patience. - 09/17/20"

"The staff and service provided at Summit Physical Therapy is what most small and large businesses dream that they can provide. As a Physical Therapist Paul Kane is an astute diagnostician, an expert designer of the proper therapy, and a joy to talk with as you are going through treatment. Laura, who is the person of contact for appointments, billings, and anything administration is equally service oriented, genuine, a please to work with, and someone you look forward to seeing when you enter their office. I wholeheartedly recommend Summit Physical Therapy for those who need treatment. I felt at all times "I was in good hands." - 08/31/20"

"Paul Kane takes the time to ask questions to determine the right treatment. He explains your treatment so that you know why you're doing each exercise or stretch. My wife and I have gone to Paul for a number of issues over the last few years and have been very pleased with our treatment and outcome. - 02/07/20"

"Dr. Paul has been heaven sent. He has worked with my husband and recently though his workouts have been intense at times I can see a big improvement on his overall mental and physical state. I would very definitely recommend Summit Physical Therapy to anybody that is experiencing any pain or discomfort as he is truly very good at what he does. Also, his office manager Laura is very accommodating and is willing to take care of any problems with scheduling. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! - 11/25/19"

"Paul Kane, PT, CMP is outstanding. He assesses the specific location of pain which leads to precise exercises to strengthen, stretch, reduce pain and increase mobility. Patients aren't on equipment for extended portions of an appointment, although equipment is sometimes used. Instead they are learning, practicing "homework" assignments: targeted, tailored exercises for their problem. Recently my "homework" included strengthening my multifidus muscle, which I'd never heard of but was a part of the solution to my lower back pain. Some exercises were adapted because they hurt my arthritic hands. His ability to modify to meet patient constraints is unique, I think. New exercises are added as one gets better, stronger. Finally, Mr. Kane answers questions, has explanatory models and charts, and most importantly, encourages along the way. - 08/29/19 "

"Summit Physical Therapy is outstanding. I have used the services of Paul Kane for a right hip joint replacement in 2012 and a left hip joint replacement in 2018. My goal after both procedures... with time to heal and then physical therapy to walk and exercise normally without fatigue or pain. Both goals have been met! The key and what makes Summit physical therapy special is Paul Kane. He gives his expertise and undivided attention during the session. No two cases are alike, therefore what is needed is not only physical therapy expertise but creativity to design the best program for success. Paul Kane is caring but works work you hard during your session to optimize results. I recommend him without any reservation! - 10/14/18 "
