My therapist is very professional, helpful, concerned about me and my progress, which has me very close now to our goals. The facility is state of the art. It's a pleasure to go there for treatment.
Have had therapy in the past at Summit, and have always enjoyed my experience there with all staff members.
The medical staff, OT staff and registration staff have consistently provided a welcoming, encouraging environment. I would recommend Summit Ortho to others and have already shared with others.
Overall very friendly and customer/patient-service focused. Pleasant and friendly.
I am still working at achieving my mobility goals. I cannot say enough positive things about your dedicated staff.
You guys are the best in the industry and when I need to have more work done I'll be back.
Therapist is concerned about not pushing me beyond my comfort level. I appreciate the ongoing feedback on my progress and enlisting my husband in my treatment efforts.
