Physical Therapy Specialists PC, was founded in December, 1977, in a small office in Clawson, Michigan. In those early days, PTS was one of only three independent physical therapy clinics in Southeastern Michigan. Dr. Paul Roubal was both the sole therapist and the enterprise visionary. His vision was simple and it was personal: that nothing less than the best patient care would characterize his practice.

The office's strong emphasis on quality translated to excellent outcomes for patients. The practice grew steadily - by 1985, there was a clear need to relocate. The patient load was growing and more space was needed to better accommodate the needs of this growing patient base. We wanted to have space for new types of exercise equipment and to provide a monitored step-down/fitness program. A nearby site was chosen and specific building plans meeting the needs of both the practice and the patients were drawn up. In April of 1986, the practice moved to its present site in Troy, Michigan. In Troy, the vision of providing the highest quality care continued….and so did PTS’ growth. In April of 1992, we expanded the facility to 10,000 sq. feet and introduced a formal fitness center fitted with state-of-the-art exercise equipment.

In the face of much growth and many changes over the years, one thing has been a proud constant: our commitment to the highest quality patient care.

In December 2019, Dr. Roubal chose Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation to continue to offer top-notch quality care to patients in SE Michigan and to expand rehabilitation services to this community.
