What could have been a very stressful and negative situation was made into a positive one.
I fell last spring (walking my dog!!) and hurt my shoulder. It was during the peak of the pandemic. Yet, I was able to be seen by the great Dr. Pete Daly. All staff were very kind and made me feel comfortable and safe. I ended up getting cortisone and physical therapy (with Josh!). I did most of the PT appointments virtually. I am happy to say that I am doing very well! What could have been a very stressful and negative situation was made into a positive one – all because of the high quality care, kindness, and respect I was shown by every single staff I encountered at Summit. THANK YOU!

Can a standing desk help?
