Right from the very first time of meeting Cindy, she explained what an exercise physiologist role is and what we would be doing. When I started I didn’t like exercising and today I really look forward to our sessions together

Having worked at Inspire Healthcare over a few years, I can honestly say that the inspire team and the patients I have met along the way have made working for this company a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Some positive take away from this job is that I always felt supported and heard, the flexibility and choice in work schedule is great, and the numerous unique patients I have treated kept it interesting and exciting. If you're looking for a great supportive team, a flexible work schedule and job satisfaction, Inspire Healthcare is for you.

Inspire Healthcare has fantastic team members. I have 80+ years old parents as their clients. Cindy was helping my father's exercise regime at first. And I found Cindy to be a thoughtful, caring and knowledgeable Exercise Physiologist. Cindy is also very accommodating with our requests. She has been helping my father with his walking ability. Cindy gradually raised the bar and have my father doing higher level of exercises. And after seeing the positive results, I suggested to my mother, who can also benefit from Cindy's help, to sign up with Cindy. I am very lucky to have Cindy helping both of my elderly parents. A+++
