Don't waste your time or money. Saw him for a series of issues, which he downplayed, then didn't treat me properly or effectively. Also has awful bedside manner. I don't understand all these rave reviews !

Dr. Justin Vanderleest is a very knowledgeable physiotherapist, I came with elbow pain and it took him few minutes to find out what was wrong with me. Took only 6 treatments and I barely feel pain in my elbow, considering I didn't really do any exercises he told me to do at home. He cares about his patience and always comes up with different techniques and treatments. I highly recommend Justin!

Justin Vanderleest is a very knowledgeable physiotherapist who genuinely cares for his patients. His personalized treatments and communication skills supported my healing from a lower back injury. I've had wonderful care at Citrus medical. The receptionist staff are always helpful and friendly. I highly recommend his services to all my friends.

I just started with Justin for a knee issue and am very happy with the results so far! He’s knowledgeable and professional and has a way about him that’s very personable and comfortable. It’s important for me to feel like I can talk to my health professionals and Justin is very friendly and non judgmental. I look forward to my sessions and would definitely recommend him to others.

Justin is very knowledgeable and caring. His treatments are effective and innovative. He has a great personality and makes you feel at ease. Definitely recommend seeing him if you are in need of a physiotherapist. I saw him for my knee issues which were bothering me for some time. I am now much more mobile and pain free :) Definitely five stars, heck probably six! -Content Client

Justin is a great physical therapist. He's very well educated, thorough, kind and funny. I started seeing Justin in 2014 after my car accident for neck and shoulder pain. I'm happy to say I no longer have neck and shoulder pain. He was very thorough and explained the treatments to me. He took his time and made sure I understood how and why I needed to do my exercises. This may explain the reasons why he could be late at times. He doesn't rush you out the door. My son also sees Justin for sports related injuries and again he took his time to explain the injury and the importance of exercises and treatments. I'm back seeing Justin again for a knee injury. I wouldn't go anywhere else. I highly recommend Justin, I truly trust his knowledge and expertise.

I'm a cancer survivor who suffers from chronic post-treatment pains. It took me awhile to figure out that exercise and physiotherapy together would keep the pains at bay so that I do not have to depend on pain meds. I've been seeing Justin for treatment almost 7 months now. Within 2 months of treatment with Justin, my surgery scar tissues were VISIBLY more pliable, and the pains subsided. I had to see another therapist once, when Justin was unavailable, and suffered bruising for an entire week! Never again! Justin is knowledgeable, humorous, sincere, and puts his patients first, above all else. I highly recommend Justin and suggest he is worth the drive even if you do not live close by.

I've been working with Justin for over a year for knee and back pain. He is very knowledgeable and identifies problems other physios I've been to couldn't. He's not warm and fuzzy but treats his patients with care and respect. I prefer someone I can have an intelligent conversation with to those doctors who put on a fake smile and try to get rid of you as quickly as they can. I would (and have) recommend him to anyone who is in need of physiotherapy. I would
