I was diagnosed with a conditioned called Common Peroneal Neuropathy (dropped foot) that affected the way I walked, in addition to other spinal issues. I was prescribed physical therapy by my orthopedic surgeon and there is where the dreaded search for a physical therapist began. I had three requirements; PT had to be local, with flexible hours and contracted with my insurance provider. I randomly started the search on-line for a PT that satisfied all my concerns. After contacting several facilities, I hit the jackpot with Physical Therapy Solutions!
The office is walking distance from my home, but to be honest, I would travel 10 miles from home after my PT sessions start with Physical Therapy Solutions.
The front desk staff, Michelle, Jessica and Truong, their intern, are professional, friendly and constantly involved with patients by sending calendar invites, scheduling sessions and making insurance benefit inquiries.
My initial session began and continues with Dr. Phillip Herel, Doctor of Physical Therapy, with the assistance from Daniel Garinger, Certified Massage Therapist/P.T. Aide. After my initial meeting with Dr. Herel and Daniel, I was sent an email demonstrating the exercise treatments for me to continue at home in between each appointment. I was really impressed by this attention for me to be able to participate in my recovery. I have been to several PTs in the past and never received this type of communications or attention to provide me with tools to reinforce my treatments.
Each session with Dr. Herel was thoroughly thought out before I arrived. He is engaging, encouraging and communicates with me about my level of pain or discomfort; making adjustments in the treatments along the way. I leave each session feeling that I am working with a medical professional and his team who treats me as a whole person and not just a patient with a very specific medical condition. This is what makes Physical Therapy Solutions by far exceptional!
To date, my Common Peroneal Neuropathy and the way I walk have improved miraculously! Other issues with my spine are being treated with noticeable improvements and for this I am absolutely amazed and thankful to Dr. Herel and Daniel for their expertise!
I highly recommend Physical Therapy to anyone in dealing with pain and require superior physical therapy treatments.
Kudos to Dr. Herel and his team!
