“A very good morning to you Fred,
It’s been a few weeks now since I completed my therapy and I wanted to provide you and your folks with some timely feedback on my experience at your facility. This was my second experience at your office and an equally successful/rewarding experience.
I can’t say enough about your facility and staff. The personal treatment, well guided therapy and structured/innovative work you do every day with such success is remarkable, it is really refreshing!
I liked the intimate setting, without the overpowering large scale gym setting, heavy equipment all about with uttering’s of memberships and customary shuffling from technician to technician that I’ve experienced at other facilities.
Although I will be 65 this year, I like to think that I am probably one of your more active lifestyle clients, so regaining and optimizing my mobility and overall health is very important to me, I feel you did that in all regards.
Noting my casual observation of your other patients receiving therapies, their handling was also personal and like my therapy, theirs was also well guided, innovative with specialized techniques and other treatments that really produce results for them too – well done!
You have a great staff, they team well and you can clearly see that they all support the operations at your office, as one.
Many thanks for getting me out on my own again, people in this area need to know about you, your office and facilities, keep up the great work!”
“Fred, Tanya, and Everyone,
I wanted to let you all know that about 3 days ago, my knee just stopped popping! I’ve been doing my exercises ~ which had helped the pain ~ but that darned popping seemed to linger! Anyhow, it just stopped, and I have you all to thank! I do miss my mornings at Physical Therapy ~ you all were so great! I would imagine that I would run into Fred + the grandkids somewhere about town, as we frequent the same preschool attractions, and now I’ll maybe be able to say “Hi” before my knee announces my presence for me!
Thank you so much!”
