Leann Cook

Leann Cook was born and raised in Muncie, Indiana, a mid-sized college town, home of the Ball State Cardinals. She attended Ball State University and chose to major in Nursing and minor in Business Management. She moved to Florida 10 years ago so her children could experience all the benefits of a warm climate. She has 3 amazing children, Zachary age 17 years, Logan age 16 years, and Ava age 12 years and she cannot forget my fur babies, Charlie Brown and two grand cats: Pacer James and Gracie Renee. She has been told her house is like a well-oiled machine with a splash of crazy.

She gets excited about learning new things and is passionate about helping others. She has an older sister who was diagnosed with a chronic condition that left her with significant disability. They are close in age but also best friends. Leann had the opportunity to see up close what it is like to be a caregiver to someone who has to constantly learn to accommodate and adapt to situations and surroundings. This experience has been a precious gift for learning not to take simple tasks for granted. She looks forward to being part of the Saylor family/team and learning new ways to help others.

Schedule an appointment and we look forward to providing you with quality, individual, one-on-one care for one full hour.

"I highly recommend Saylor Physical Therapy and it is by far the best PT place we have been to! My son started seeing Heather Kennedy after a sports injury and I quickly realized she is very passionate about her patients’ care and is very thorough and knowledgeable. She takes her time to explain everything to him and ensure he walks away with not only less pain and more mobility, but have knowledge of his body mechanics to prevent injuries. The environment is also very pleasant and all staff including front desk, PTA (Alex) and other Physical Therapist are very friendly and professional."

Maryan H. - Lake Mary

“I came to Saylor Physical Therapy with shoulder pain and lack of mobility in my left shoulder. I was taking medication for relief. After eight sessions I was no longer in pain and had increased my range of motion. Not only was the pain gone but I had exercises that I could continue on my own. When I started working with the therapist my goal was to no longer need medication for my pain and that goal was reached.”

Judy A. - Lake Mary

"Meghan Chamberlain is the GOAT of physical therapy! She worked with me prior to my knee replacement and set me up for a successful recovery. She set the expectations on things I would need to do to be a successful knee replacement patient. After the surgery she had me walking without out any assistance after our 1st meeting. I was so surprised by how fast I was able to be at a full range of motion (because of Meghan, my Dr. was also surprised). She pushed me; however, she knows when to stop. I also did 8 weeks of dry needling with Meghan and was able to postpone my knee surgery by 6 months. This process was scary at first, but she made it very comfortable and talked me through the entire process! I felt a lot of relief while going through the dry needling process!"
