I highly recommend Dr. Yakov. I first came to him in terrible pain after suffering a torn calf muscle and ruptured plantaris tendon in my knee. I couldn’t walk at all or even put the slightest amount of weight on my leg even with crutches. Dr. Yakov calmly assured me it would get better and that I would be walking again without crutches in 1 month or less. This is exactly what happened. After seeing him 3 times a week for 3 weeks, I slowly began to walk without crutches, and after a month, I was nearly back to normal. Through his techniques of cupping, stretching excercises, and massage, among other things, he was able to pinpoint exactly where the structural problems were, and was able to correct and heal them over time.
I came to Determination Physical Therapy with immense pain in my right foot when I started. But, when I did my consultation with the Dr. Yakov, he was able to immediately determine what was wrong. And, right away was able to begin treatment the same day as my consultation. I left feeling much better because I was able to use my injured foot without as much restraint. I have been doing therapy with Dr. Yakov for a little over a month and I can tell you that my injured foot is almost back to normal. Now, I am able to stand more than 5 minutes at a time and can walk for long periods of time, distances with little to no pain in my injured foot. I even got my mom to start seeing him for her injury-which was a feat in and of itself. She likes going to therapy now, too. Dr. Yakov knows what he is doing and explains your injury so that you can understand what is required. He is also very open to questions about your injury to help you understand. FYI – I wanted to give a fair review so this review is 3 weeks post this appointment date and 7 weeks post my consultation.
Friendly and excellent staff. Front desk is always helpful and pleasant. Doctor Simkhayev is very knowledgeable when it comes to getting you fixed up. From setting up exercises at the vicinity to doing them at home my recovery has been quite fast. I have been doing rehab for a torn ACL as it’s been a relaxing and stress free process. Determination makes sure everything is going smooth for me.
He is a fantastic physical therapist. He has a gentle, quiet manner which is very rare these days. He took the time to talk to me about what I was feeling and to understand my particular situation involving carpal tunnel. He worked on my wrists for almost 2 months and they feel much better. His staff is also very pleasant. I recommend Yakov and his team.
fter a bad fall with several injuries, mostly knees and broken toes, Yakov Simkayev said: “I will make you better”, and he did. His confidence helped me to regain my own confidence, as well as my former speed and agility. Yakov is the rare combination of being very smart, polite, kind and compassionate. I would not hesitate to recommend Yakov and his team to anyone who needs the unique results of Physical Therapy.

Well where do I begin I must say he is an excellent physical therapist Dr.Yakov is very professional, friendly and attentive. In the past month I was suffering from back pain numbness from the waist to the legs and now the pain went away at least 50%. I would highly recommend him! Besides that he and his staff are very nice, caring, thoughtful and they really take the time to go through all the process. very comfortable place to be well taken care of. I give it 5stars!!! Dr. Yakov has been blessed with the best hands and he also has a heart of gold. He is very pleasant and patient and he tries to work with you as much as he can to ease the pain you are feeling.. Both me and my daughter are very happy with his treatment and will continue to go to him for full recovery. I believe I will be back to normal in no time. I highly recommend him to any one who has any need for a physical therapist take my advice go to him. 🙂
I’ve been seeing Dr. Simkhayev for the past month or so due to ongoing back pain, and in a very short period of time I’ve felt a drastic reduction in the amount and intensity of the pain. This is the first time in the past 15+ years that I’ve felt any relief and I’m very optimistic about the long term affects that this treatment will have on me. Dr. Simkhavey is very warm and friendly and has excellent bedside manner. He always explains what affect each treatment is expected to have, and follows up with simple exercises that you can do at home and on your own to help get better. I’ve seen chiropractors in the past and have never felt that I am actually fixing the problem/issue, with the therapy at Determination I can say without a doubt that I am making significant progress in correcting the issues that are causing my back pain. Dr. Simkhayev is amazing! and I’d highly recommend him!!
