Patient of the Month - February 2013
We couldn't pick just one person for our February patient of the month! Roxanne and Cheryl are each so outstanding that we wanted to honor both of them.
Meet Roxanne Below! To learn about Cheryl's Journey,Click Here
Name: Roxanne K.
Occupation: Senior Academic Advisor—Caldwell College
Injury: Tendinitis of the Hamstring
I can't imagine someone not loving Roxanne. As a patient she is committed, driven, and responsive. As a person, she is kind, compassionate, and thoughtful. No matter what the circumstances, she stayed positive through her therapy and even took the time to share thoughts regarding our business. We already miss her!
In her own words....
What brought you to PT?
Tendinitis of the hamstring
How have you benefitted from your PT experience (physically or mentally)? I limped in and I walked out—it doesn’t get any better than that!
What would you recommend to someone who has the same injury as you? to get themselves over to Iron Physical Therapy
What activities are you most excited about getting back to? Just being able to move with greater comfort makes everything easier.
Any new goals now that you are feeling better? Get rid of those extra pounds.
Just to add a few words—it was Dr. Mayes credentials and experience that brought me to Iron PT. After being told by my orthopedic doctor that my next course of action should be PT, I started doing my research. What I found was that though many places claimed to offer PT, not everyone was a Doctor of Physical Therapy and had all the necessary background. I enjoyed my time at Iron PT, it was a positive friendly environment—a place of healing and learning.
And yes Doc, I am still doing my exercises!
The minute he walked through the door, we knew LJ was special.
He's focused, hard working and a fierce competitor, but there's not a trace of arrogance to be found. We always love to be inspired by our own patients, especially when they are still in junior high.
We also feel blessed to have gotten to know the entire Castellano family. The warmth, love and respect they have for one another is so rare today. With this kind of support and LJ's own winning spirit, we know his future is bright!
Three Words We Use To Describe LJ: Committed, Humble, Mature
What brought you to PT?
I wrestle on a national level and had a problem with my shoulder. I heard about Iron Physical Therapy and came in to work with Dr. Geno. When I met him, I liked him right away, and he knows how to push me hard.
How have you benefitted from your PT experience ?
I have learned that even though there are problems, if you work hard enough you can find solutions to overcome them.
My shoulder is feeling much stronger, and I am wrestling without any problems.
What would you recommend to someone who has the same injury as you?
Go to Iron because you'll get stronger and be able to compete better.
What activities/goals are you most excited about getting back to?
Wrestling and winning the state title.
**The criteria for selection were patient compliance, attitude, attendance and Iron PT evangelism**
