Katrina

Joe is a miracle worker – I came in with a lingering issue with my shoulder. He quickly diagnosed it, gave me a PT regime to do at home (instructions with videos on my phone, how easy is that?!?)

Jennifer

Last Friday, my daughter, who plays JV basketball, needed assistance from the Sandy High School staff. Late in the 4th quarter of the JV game she went down with a knee injury. Typically, she is very reserved, brushes off pain, and carries on. However, this time, that was not the case. When she did not pop up right away, I was concerned. I did not get the name of the Athletic Trainer for the school, but he was quick to assist my daughter. I want to say thank you for having such a caring, quick responding, and calming Athletic Trainer. I was internally distraught at the sight of seeing my daughter in so much pain, yet he was able to console her and had her smiling and I believe had her mind elsewhere while he did his exam. The whole process was quick, steady, and efficient. During halftime of the Varsity game, the Athletic Trainer came out and did a follow up with my daughter and provided a wrap and crutches which wasn’t expected but highly appreciated. Just know that you have a great guy working for you.
