I am 100% satisfied with all aspects of the excellent physical therapy care I have received from Nick Rinard and other staff at Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy of Portland. Previous to becoming a patient at MDT I suffered over 6 years of chronic pain that continually increased as the years went by. -- Nick and his staff are giving me back my life.
Within 10 days of seeing Nick I was able to sleep without pain for the first time in many years and within a few weeks I was able to return to distance walking.
Nick has incredible analytical skills and a wide base of knowledge and experience thus giving him the expertise to competently diagnosis my long-standing complex pain / medical problems and to find solutions that are helping me. He always listens carefully to me and takes time to explain things well to me. He has been consistently patient, caring, honest and encouraging.
Nick and the other physical therapists at MDT will do a free screening to evaluate if they believe they can help the patient. Additionally, they will not waste the patients money and time if improvement is not shown within a few weeks; rather they will discontinue treatment and refer the patient back to his / her physician.
Nick and all the staff at MDT are consistently very friendly and up beat by phone and in person. -- In this too busy automated world it means a lot to be in a medical situation where the staff really does care about each patient. Their offices are pleasant places to be because the entire staff does such an exceptional job of being personable, approachable, and caring with each patient.
Neatness and cleanliness of staff and the facility is always a priority. Linens are laundered and equipment is disinfected between every patient.
Before I ever attended my first appointment, a MDT patient representative contacted me explaining that she was available to me as MY personal representative. She offered to answer any questions I had or to help me in any manner. She has been great.
Additionally, previous to my first appointment, their billing department phoned me to completely explain the various billing options and to answer any of my questions. They have been readily available, patient and courteous to work with whenever I have had additional questions.
In summary: previous to being a patient of Nick Rinard, I had been seen by multiple physical therapists and other medical specialists who were unable to diagnose the cause of my pain or help relieve it.
I firmly believe that I would not have suffered the past 6+ pain-filled years if I had been referred to Nick when my pain issues first started. He would have taught me then, as he is now doing, the correct exercises to do in order to become pain free. Additionally, I would have learned how to move correctly and thus avoided continually re-injuring myself more through the years.
I cant say enough good about Nick and the rest of the staff at MDT they are exceptional. I couldnt be happier than I am -- with the care, and all other facets of my PT experience at MDT of Portland. -- As I said earlier they are giving me back my quality of life.
I encourage you to phone for your free screening appointment at MDT Your time will be well spent.

I would NEVER do business with Nick and his crew again. They said treatment would cost one amount, ended up costing MUCH more. If you do deal with this group, get EVERYTHING in writing, and get copies of everything you sign at the time of service. I wonder why my insurance company (a large and respected nationwide company) won't do business with them...NOT!

I went into the 1st session with very much a skeptical attitude. Nick listened to my story with an open mind. I had been in pain for one and a half years since my auto accident. I had seen a chiropractor, a massage therapist, a physical therapist (not at MDT) and an acupuncturist. I had some improvement but was still in pain. Nick asked me some questions and observed me doing some bending, etc. Before I left the office, he had diagnosed my probem and started me on an therapy exercise program geared towards relieving the pain. Within a couple of weeks, there was marked improvement. I owe Nick and Bryan a huge THANK YOU for all you did. I got my life back!

The office workers were wonderful as well.

After my auto accident, I tried several therapies, including chiropractic, massage and acupuncture yet none brought me relief from the pain I recieved from my auto accident. I went to MDT on the advice of a friend and after 4 weeks, most of my pain has gone away. That is pretty fast considering I suffered for a year with the other therapies and showed only minimal improvement. Upon arriving you are greated by a professional staff who are very fun and informative. It took a few sessions to discover the root of my problems, and from there on I was given exercises that have quickly improved my condition. When I entered their facility, I could barely bend over(especially in the mornings), raising my arms above my head produced terrible pain and I was unable to turn my head very far to one side. All this has changed, rapidly and as I continue my exercises(approximately 20 minutes a day) I continue to improve. After one month, I have very little discomfort in the mornings and my shoulders and neck have loosed up considerably and the pain has all but vanished. I heartily reccommend their program, both from the diagnosis stage to explaining and demonstrating the exercises; each step is carefully monitered and exercises evolve as your condition improves. Quit suffering, go in and see Nick and Brian, their wonderful staff, and the always present cheerful notetaking interns. You will enjoy your therapy (they are basic and natural exercises) and you will see immediate improvements to whatever ails you. MDT empowers you through their exercises to take control of your own healing and improvement, with skills you can utilize all your life. Their goal is to get you on your own as quick as possible, so you don't have to keep returning to see them. Thanks to MDT for helping me to return to all my favorite physical activities that I have enjoyed all my life before my accident.

Pros: expert diagnosis and therapy

First, Nik is far from professional at all. He stands there thinking he is god's gift to the world and he is first of all chubby and has greasy long hair. GROSS! He then hangs, all over the office, the front desk, pictures of his kid. Give me a break, I could care what she looks like and I could not even write a check as there were pictures everywhere. Recommended by a professional sports physician to see Nik I was pawned off on the newbie and my doctor was mad! Also, Nik tried to drag out the sessions knowing I had awesome insurance. I made a few cash payments and guess what, just got a bill and there is no cash on my statement. I believe that they could care less about the patient and Nik cares more about what he looks like. Gets old so I am so done there. You think they are the only ones who perform this therapy. Think twice, any Chiropractor in Washington does the exact same thing.

Wouldn't trust them again and I will let the world know what a rip off they are. Also dishonestly bill insurance companies as per my insurance company......watch out...hide your wallets....also , the sheets at the beaverton facility are disgusting. Full of wrinkles, yellow, ripped....bad news. likely not clean!!!

Pros: none

Cons: Dishonest staff, watch your wallets, Katie has horrible customer service..beware!

As a current employee of MDT I feel that the last post by Bella456 is simply incorrect. When we work hard and do a wonderful job, they never fail to recognize and reward us. They are openhanded with their raises and quarterly bonuses. So not only do we see a difference in our paychecks but also in the treatment we recieve on a daily basis. They are more than kind to provide us with yearly retreats, meals, and gifts. I feel that our employers have been more than generous to us and definitely show their constant appreciation.

MDT is a wonderful place if you want to heal. Their work is amazing and their customer service is supreme. If you've been from place to place and still arent better, chances are their the only people who can help you. Most of the patients that they treat are sent there as a last ditch effort to get them better, and its rare for a patient to not have full recovery even after being told by other places that it just wont happen. The only downside to MDT is that the employees are severely underpaid, and arent treated with the most respect. The owners pay themselves enough to live a lavish life, and pay their staff barely above minimum wage. They have great treatment plans, but they need to learn to treat their staff better.

Pros: Hardley ever see a patient they cant heal

Cons: Bad employers

These guys are the most amazing physical therapists. They have been trained in the McKenzie method in addition to the standard physical therapy curriculum. Their goal is to get you out the door, all healed up, the fastest they can, rather than make you dependent on coming to them the rest of your life.
My doctor told me to plan on knee replacement therapy down the road, and after coming to Mechanical Diagnosis, I no longer anticipate the need for such drastic surgery, and am walking just fine, after years of limping.
The office is run in a very patient-friendly way. They take regular insurance. You will not regret calling them, and only kick yourself that you didn't do it sooner.
Three locations make them very convenient (Tigard, Clackamas, and Beaverton). Nick's schedule is usually full, but you will be fine seeing anyone on the staff, which will avoid delay in getting treatment.

I have seen Nicholas Rinard for back, shoulder, and knee issues. His care and expertise is second to none. I am now the poster child for perfect ACL reconstruction and I owe it all to Nick.
You must be on time as his clinic works like a fine Swiss watch. And, you must do what he tells you to do. Not only will you get better, but you run the risk of being cut from his patient list if you do not comply with his demands. Being cut from his patient list is a bad thing because then you are then forced to use a PT that will keep you on, and let you get away with not getting better, just to pad their pockets with your money.
I highly recommend Nicholas Rinard for anyone who is in the need of Physical Therapy.
