Don’t take *our* word for it.

We asked our patients about their treatment experience at THE LAB. Here’s what they had to say

I’ve been exposed to and seen a lot of chiros throughout my time as a professional athlete. I can honestly say that the team at The Lab is not only the best in the biz when it comes to knowledge and treatment, but who they are as people and the relationships they build with their clients is unmatched. They’ve been a game changer

Dr. Gomes and the team at the Lab was instrumental in getting my body right in the offseason. His knowledge and treatment style set him apart. Would highly recommend to any athlete.

I started seeing Dr. Gomes, and from the first treatment I knew he was my guy. He assessed me and saw how I moved, explained to me what the issue was, and then explained how we can fix it. As a powerlifter, it’s imperative that I have a great medical team behind me. Brendan is helping me get out of pain, and helping me continue to lift more on the platform. Thank you for everything.

Rehabbing with Dr. Gomes was fantastic. After suffering a season-ending torn tricep, he helped me cut my recovery time down significantly. I reached full recovery 2 MONTHS earlier than expected! He is knowledgeable and patient; my tricep has never felt better!

Brendan at The Lab was quickly able to diagnose my nagging knee pain and provide a treatment plan that had me feeling better after the first session. Brendan has an excellent understanding of how the body works, which allows him to treat the cause of the pain so you don’t have to keep coming back. I would highly recommend Brendan to anyone looking to resolve pain or overcome an injury.

Working with the team at The Lab has added years to my career. I would have never made it to 7 seasons as a pro without them. I trust The Lab with all of the young athletes who train at Overtime Football.

My experience at The Lab was great. Rabia is an amazing and highly experienced physiotherapist I’m grateful I got to go to. She is extremely knowledgeable and great what she does. She helped me heal and strengthen my sprained ankle over the course of several weeks. She is so patient and answers any questions or concerns you may have and went above and beyond to make sure I get my ankle back to 100%. She makes you feel comfortable and I learned a lot during my sessions. Before I went to her it had been a month and my ankle was not healing. And after my sessions with her is when I started seeing progress. Now I’m all good to get back into training. If your looking for a physiotherapist go see Rabia! You won’t regret it. The whole team at the lab is extremely knowledgeable and great at their job. I would recommend it to anyone.

My experience at the lab has been nothing but positive. When I first arrived I was greeted by the whole staff they really make you feel welcomed and part of their little home. The Labs facility is beautiful, very clean and organized with a big gym for your rehabilitation needs. These surroundings made my rehab journey very pleasant. I had the pleasure of Dr. Brendan Gomes working on my injury. He is full of knowledge and very comfortable to be around .His treatment had me feeling great within only a couple sessions. I highly recommend The Lab if you want the best results

I have been going here for several years now. I started off seeing Samira for athletic therapy, who has helped me rebound from countless sports injuries and post-operative recovery. I started seeing Brendan for back pain and have continued to see him for other sports related injuries. I really love that they are a multi-disciplinary clinic and I would recommend them to anyone.

Brendan is hands down the best chiro I've seen. He can target pain and improve mobility, help strengthen to not only manage but remove pain! Riley is an amazing RMT. Knowledgeable, personable, and strong hands! PT Casey has been working with me to strengthen my knee and more recently through an injury. Patient, excellent bedside manner and effective treatment plans are at the core of his practice

I always have a positive experience at The Lab. I have been working with Casey for my ACL rehab and have learned more and improved greatly in a few sessions than I have from other physiotherapists. I always look forward to coming and he always challenges/pushes me which I really appreciate!

I started out in this field because I was inspired by the care and sports rehab that I received when I was an athlete. From competitive gymnastics to soccer to varsity track and field, I’ve been in and out of my fair share of clinics!

I have a passion for helping people return to doing what they love. Whether that be sports, recreational activity, or returning to a pain-free everyday life. I want to work as a team with each individual to create a treatment that fits their mental and physical needs. I believe that exercise and activity is an essential component of wellbeing and want my clients to be able to engage in these activities without compromise.

Education-wise I went to Western (GO STANGS!) for my undergrad, earning a Honours Bachelor of Arts with Specialization in Kinesiology and followed that with a Diploma of Massage Therapy from Sutherland-Chan.

In my spare time, I like to lift weights, read, play volleyball and spend time with family. I’m a huge sports fan, especially the Leafs, Raps and Jays!
