Founded by local physical therapist Jim Harvey in 2002, our practice began as Great Lakes Therapy House Calls. Before establishing his own practice, Jim worked as a staff physical therapist at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City.  During his tenure at Munson, Jim determined there was a need in the area to provide comprehensive, in-home therapy.  Venturing into private practice was an exciting move, and proved to be beneficial for patients unable or uninterested in clinic-based rehab.
