On October 29, 2014, I was scheduled for a partial knee replacement. When my doctor started the procedure, he realized right away that I would indeed need a complete knee replacement, which is exactly what I got.
Being young (at least for a full knee) I thought I would be back at everything like normal within a couple of months. I really actually had no idea how slow the process would take and how frustrated I would get at times.
I started therapy at Makovicka about two weeks later. At my first visit I sat with my physical therapist at the 90th and Boyd location, and she explained the goals I needed to reach and what my billing structure would look like. My insurance would only pay a small portion, leaving me wondering if I could even stay in therapy for as long as I needed. The next appointment I had, the clinic director, went over my payment options and blew me away. It was completely affordable and I would be able to go for the three months I needed for a full recovery. I literally teared up. There are not too many healthcare practices that did what they did for me and I was truly grateful. It was at that time, I knew this was the place for me.
I can honestly say that never once while I was at an appointment did I hear one person say anything negative. Everyone always had a smile on their face, cracked jokes all of the time and made the environment extremely pleasant. They made physical therapy a fun place to be and not somewhere I dreaded to go three times a week. They not only became my therapists, but also my friends.
I just had my last visit and I cannot thank everyone enough for the compassion they’ve shown me. Although I consider myself a very positive person, they kept me motivated when I felt as if I wasn’t at the level I wanted to be at.
I would recommend Makovicka Physical Therapy to anyone at anytime. If I were to ever need physical therapy again, there is only one option for me and that is you guys.
Thank you again for everything you have done. God bless each and every one of you!!!
