WHAT PATIENTS SAY ABOUT DR. LESKO


Dr. Mark Lesko has been treating me with great skill and care for 20 years.  I have painful degenerative arthritis in my back and wouldn’t be walking up right if it wasn’t for Dr Lesko.  I’ve been told by other Doctors that I may need surgery, one in Florida said I’d be in a wheel chair in 2 years, that was 11 years ago.  I feel better and my quality of life is very good because of Dr. Lesko. I recommend him highly.

Physical Therapist

Dr. Nicole Martin


Dr. Nicole Martin began her path to physical therapy as a life long athlete, where she excelled in lacrosse and basketball. Unfortunately, her competitive spirit often led her into the training room with injuries. This time in the training room brought her closer with physical therapists and understanding the importance of rehabilitation after an injury.
After living abroad in Paris, Dr. Martin returned with a new eagerness to pursue a career in health care and began working for a physical therapy clinic in San Francisco. She flourished at the clinic and realized this was where she was meant to be. It combined her passion to help relieve ailments and educate to better the lives of her patients.
Dr. Martin attended the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in Austin, Texas and graduated with Honors. During college, she received Lacrosse All League 2nd team 3 years, was captain 3 years, and 4 year starter. As a physical therapist, Dr. Martin uses a holistic approach, focusing on manual therapy, education and exercise to encourage movement and return patients to the activities which they enjoy most!
Outside the clinic, Dr. Martin enjoys spending time outdoors with her Australian Shepherd and exploring the new restaurants around Austin!
