Testimonials: Physical Therapy

Sandra Hayes – Physical Therapy

I want to express my deepest gratitude to Rachel Tyler and her amazing staff.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience at OSC. Ms. Tyler is an excellent therapist, professional, very knowledgeable, and truly compassionate. It’s clear that Ms. Tyler is also an excellent leader; from the moment I first entered OSC, I could sense the warm and friendly atmosphere and the sincere concern of each staff member for their patients. I have been a patient at many physical therapy facilities, OSC was by far the best.

Ms. Tyler’s assistant Ms. Catina was always so kind and accommodating, she made me feel as if nothing was ever too much to ask. The receptionists Autumn and Stachia were also so kind and friendly. It was a joy to see everyone at each appointment.

I will definitely recommend OSC to anyone. It is well-run, efficient, and deeply caring. Should I need additional help, I will definitely return to OSC!

Thanks again for everything,

Sandra Hayes

Leonora del Rosario Reiley – Spine Surgery/Physical Therapy

After a subpar experience in every way with another local orthopedic group, I finally caved in to my mother-in-law’s advice and made an appointment with Jeffrey Carlson for chronic neck and shoulder pain that had plagued me for over a decade.

I was amazed at the facility. MRI’s and x-rays on site–no traveling to second locations for the aforementioned tests. Efficient billing practices and fast turnover of workmen’s comp and other potentially frustrating forms that come with the medical territory.

Dr. Carlson’s expertise and compassionate manner is evident at every phase of treatment. I feel confident in saying that The Orthopedic and Spine Center is comparable to anything big cities or famous medical facilities, such as Duke or Johns Hopkins, have to offer. After ruling out every other possible treatment, Dr. Carlson performed an anterior cervical diskectomy that went without a hitch, and I have been pain-free since.

I have also used the physical therapy services at OSC and have found them to be excellent. I underwent two rounds of grueling PT at another PT office, so was very pleased when Dave Durham came up with a completely different routine from those I had been prescribed before that banished my symptoms quickly. More important, I can do this routine easily at a gym should my symptoms reoccur.

While I can’t say I look forward to future dealings with OSC, I at least know that I will have the very best care, should I need their expertise down the road.

Sincerely,

Leonora del Rosario Reiley

Beverly N. Williams – Reverse Shoulder Replacement/Physical Therapy

I can’t stop talking about the great job Dr. Martin Coleman did when he performed a Reverse Total Shoulder Replacement (Arthroplasty) on me in August, 2009. Not only was the recuperation of my left shoulder 100 times easier than when I had my right shoulder replaced in 2000, I am now back to using my shoulder the way I did before rheumatoid arthritis ate up the joint. I can reach for things now without pain, and getting dressed is no longer an agonizing chore. I also can raise both of my arms high in the air when cheering for my NFL team, the Pittsburgh Steelers! Awesome!

Dr. Coleman’s great work was followed by awesome physical therapy at OSC Physical Therapy. Everyone there made coming in for physical therapy fun, which helped me work through the pain. I couldn’t have asked for a better physical therapist than Jim Koske. Jim understood the limitations I faced due to rheumatoid arthritis affecting my joints and causing most of them to be man-made. He came up with a variety of exercises for me to do at OSC and at home to get my shoulder going.

Thanks to Orthopaedic & Spine Center, my left shoulder now feels as good as new.
