Butel Health Services was established in 1997 by physiotherapist, Cathy Butel. The practice began in Pennant Hills before eventually moving to Hornsby in the early 2000's. Cathy worked tirelessly for many years as a sole practicing physio before hiring Jamie Page in 2009. Jamie brought a new level of excitement to the clinic with excellent skills in sports rehabilitation in particular.
