I feel like family

I've had PT here for a couple months for knee pain. When I walked in the front door everyone was so friendly and kind. The kindness from the front staff was a forefront  for how wonderful the physical therapists were. They immediately set me up with a home exercise program so that I was able to follow up with the program on my own. There is much cohesiveness with the staff and they surpassed my expectations. Very rare to find a place like this that gives their heart to their patients. I would recommend for any one with musculoskeletal issues to try this facility. I feel like family when I come in the door.

A game changer!

I had three surgeries in the last two years and had all types of therapy without much success.  I started aqua therapy seven months ago and it has been a game changer.  The therapists here are dedicated, caring and involved with all aspects of my wellness.  The therapy I receive not only helps my various physical conditions, it helps with my mindfulness.  I strongly recommend this group for any of your therapy needs.

A lot less pain

I felt so much better at the end.  The pain was so much less.  I could turn my head and move in ways I hadn’t been able to move in months.  I have learned to use muscles that I never knew I even had” I lost 40 pounds and am no longer overweight.  I am even an inch taller.  My muscles are strong.  I am in a lot less pain.  I am back working more than 40 hours a week and confident that the next five years will be better than the last.

Water PT is as good as it gets

I can honestly say Water PT is as good as it gets; aquatic therapy is simply superior to land therapy.  The staff immediately sets you at ease.  Water PT Specialists engages you as a partner in your recovery.  They also seem to attract an enjoyable group of patients which makes for a fun experience unlike the drudgery of a physical therapy mill you might see in an outpatient setting.

Preparing for knee surgery

First, I hope this mail is shown or forwarded to the person or people who own this company.

Second I want to thank you for having such a professional and nice staff. All concerned. I am experiencing memory loss but I am grateful to Sandra, Ramsey, Zack, Miya, Glennis, and others for making PT fun, rewarding and getting results.

In the course of treatment for my knee arthritis I have been given a lot of Cortisone, sent to the worst and pricey rehab centers with awful PT personnel and achieved nothing. NOW WE’RE  TALKIN BABY! YA FEEL ME?

I am not looking forward to my knee replacement surgery, but at least my body will be ready thanks to your staff.

Kind letter of praise

Dear Ms. Hawkins and Ms. Semmel,

I wanted to thank you personally for the outstanding staff you’ve assembled and the physical therapy techniques you employ at the Westchester YMCA.   I must say, unfortunately, this was not the first-time I’d experienced this technique, but this time it was not only gratifying but much more of a rewarding experience than the one I had had 2 years ago at another facility.

I would also like to mention three people on your team that I want to particularly thank.

The first person is Iris Gomez who was very gracious and helpful in organizing the required paper work I needed for my therapy.   At the onset of treatment, I was still teaching at Los Angeles Community College, in the middle of giving final exams as well as tending to all the other minutiae involved with the closing of a semester. As a result, I was somewhat scattered and forgetful about completing and returning certain required documents. Ms. Gomez handled my “delinquency” with professionalism and charm. Every new patient should have the opportunity to meet and work with her.

Secondly, the person who I only had the opportunity to work with twice, but whose assistance was very impactful; Ally Baraban.  Her Yoga background as well as her special rapport contributed a great deal to our sessions.

Thirdly, I want to thank, the person who was assigned as my therapist, Danielle Quan. Under her intelligent and detailed guidance; I became pain free, my balance improved and the support muscles for my compromised knee strengthened. Danielle never failed to answer a question or follow up on a concern. She also never failed to inform me about the purpose of an exercise, and its long and/or short-range goals.  But most importantly, she always made me feel as if the treatment was being designed particularly for my needs.  Completely confident in her instruction, I allowed her to challenge me and my body and the rewards are now obvious. I cannot extoll this young woman enough.  As an Educator and Executive Trainer, I must say that her qualities of confidence, respectfulness, warmth and intelligence are the stuff that leaders are made of.  I predict a bright future for her and I am thankful to have had her as a therapist.

Finally, I was hesitant to begin therapy with your company because of the distance I had to travel to get there. May I say again, that it was worth every mile.  Also, I will not hesitate to recommend your services to my doctor as well as to anyone that I know.  Best Wishes and continued success.
