Patient Comments

January 2019

Teresa Heinmann is terrific. She is very caring and very knowledgeable. Always willing to give support and encouragement. Kelly and Bob are good with ASTYM. Can you clone Tessa or have more trained or certified in her expertise?

The therapists (Bob and Lindsey) have given first class results. In the beginning I didn’t expect much but am greatly surprised. Kudos to both and many thanks.

I have just completed an extended rehab. My primary associate was Lindsey Dreiling. I could not have had a more caring or professional person to work me to achieve my goal. We worked together very well and over time I improved almost more than could have expected. She is also very pleasant and personable. I would adopt her if I could. I would also commend Kelly who filled in ably when Lindsey was not available. The front desk ladies were also very pleasant and helpful.

My experience here has been outstanding. I have met some of my goals in 6 weeks. The ladies have taught me many skills that I will continue to use on my own. Whitney and Joyce have been great with me. I really appreciate all of your help!

We wish to thank Theresa Heimann, Melissa Ginther, Cari Readle, Chris and Kelly in the Outpatient Rehab Department for the outstanding care provided to our son. Theresa reassured us at the first visit, which was so needed at that time. Melissa and Cari worked so hard to help him improve and all 3 celebrated his small gains with us. Chris and Kelly were so accommodating, helping us reschedule around my sons multiple doctor appointments, surgeries and hospital stays. After 4 months of therapy we feel equipped to do it on our own at home. Thanks to each one of those ladies.

The care was excellent. Lindsey was very professional yet personal and did an excellent job. She was always cheerful and pleasant to work with.

Debbie and Jana were great. Very caring and helpful in getting me back to doing things I wanted to do. Great facility.

I was walking with a cane – now mostly I can get along without it. My balance is much better. I feel much better physically.

Debbie and Bob were excellent. They helped me a lot. Very professional. I thank them.

My experience has been wonderful. Deb and Joyce have went out of their way in assisting me with not only therapy but any questions I had. They were amazing.
My time in PT here was very enjoyable. I couldn’t ask for better PTs. They were very kind, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I’m actually sad to be done. Thanks for everything. I appreciate it!

Bob, Kelly and Jana were great. They worked well together drawing on each other’s strengths. They cared about my health and also cared about my life. They were great. Thanks and God Bless.

My therapists were great in helping me to recover. My therapists were Whitney and Joyce. They were great in helping me to recover. They were excellent.

At the beginning of my rehab it was a complete shock on how much this surgery hurt. At times I was so frustrated that I wanted to quit and just deal with what I had. Whitney made this awful time enjoyable. She made me feel like I could do anything she asked me to. I whole-heartedly appreciate what she was done for me. I thank her with everything I have. Plus she’s pretty. An Bob, we have been through twenty years of fun. Also appreciate his patience and sincere concern for my well-being. As much as I have come to love everyone here I hope I only see them in public. Kelly and Shelby are genuinely the nicest girls I have ever met.

The care I received for PT both before surgery and after was outstanding. Melissa and Lindsey were always very professional and caring. Both are a valuable asset to your facility.

Check in are always pleasant and helpful. Theresa, my main therapists, was encouraging, pleasant and clear in directions at every visit. Kelly was the PT assistant that also worked with me. Focus was on improving my balance, coordination, etc. Both of these were very helpful and pleasant. Therapy was successful. I am back to full function.

I came in not walking well at all. Kelly and Whitney pushed me to where I want to be. I feel stronger and more confident. Thanks to both! Between PT and cardiac rehab and exercising at home I am ready to get back on that horse and ride. Many thanks. I know they key is to continue to exercise.

I’ve always had very good and comprehensive help with rehabilitating inures. I’ve had Debbie and Joyce as my therapists and they have always gone above and beyond finding and figuring out how to help me – Whether it’s traditional or non traditional!

I was very happy and satisfied with both Joyce and Debbie. I had great care while I was here.

I specifically requested to come to CHI PT because of the great results I had gotten in the past. The staff here is very good. Love their professionalism and friendliness.

Deb Cook was great to work with even with all of my complex problems. I felt that everyone was on the same page and I didn’t feel rushed as PT is hard. Brett and Carrie were really great and helpful and compassionate.

Since I had no experience in therapy the ladies showed me what I need to do to experience the results of therapy.

Janna is great to work with. She is very patient and works with specific needs.

Made me feel comfortable all the way through.

I don’t see anything that needs improvement. I was well pleased with all my experiences, especially with the services provided by Janna. It was a pleasure working with her. She was very helpful in providing the services need to recover from the hip surgery. I will contact Janna if some issues or questions should come up.

You do a fantastic job working with patients, and you made me feel an important part of my recovery.

Felt like you guys did awesome. Most completed program I have ever had.

Very organized and great use of time. Challenging, but kind to me.

Jan 2015

Lindsey, Melissa, and the rest of the staff made my experience here the most wonderful time. I can’t express in words how much I’m going to miss my time here.

Lindsey, Whitney, Kelly, Melissa, Bob, Shelby, Kelly and Twila to name a just a few that made my experience great.

For my personal needs, probably needed more building up on my legs and arms. But I’m still well pleased with the progress I made in this facility!

Longer breaks are needed in between the tougher exercises. Also need time for water breaks.

Dec 2014

Having been through this twice before, I feel that the care provided was exceptional. I have no suggestions for improvement.

This department and the people are terrific! Debbie has been a blessing!

If this team can work with me, they can work with anyone!

Carol is wonderful. She has vast knowledge and is able to apply it and assist me with understanding of how/why I had my neck injury and how to prevent further.

Super good care and very knowledgeable about my pain and concerns. Left feeling so much better. Yeah!
