Meet The Staff

Laurel Office

In early 2003, Maximum Performance opened the doors to their first location in Laurel, Maryland. The Laurel clinic rapidly expanded thanks to the generous support of the medical community and the patients that have benefited from our “patient first” approach to physical therapy.

Beginning in November 2022, our Laurel clinic moved to its new location at 14504 Greenview Drive, Suite 106.
