"Yesterday's surgery went well and Rivergate Pharmacy even fixed my scooter while I was under. Brandye and Danielle were very helpful getting me out the door pointed in the right direction, and with my PT schedule and receipt for last week's "Wacky Wednesday" appointment in hand. Your staff is the best! Mostly, I want to thank you for your care and tailored approach to my PT yesterday before surgery! Went into surgery with unprecedented confidence in my neck; and I noticed tangible improvements in my neck strength in that situation-this is/was a "WOW" for me! I also want you to know.... In the past few weeks I've needed to speak with dozens of doctors and medical professionals, about 7 different medical offices, and two hospitals (!), On every occasion when subject of Physical Therapy was addressed your medical peers were quick to express high-praises of your skill, praise of you personally Ellen, and of your staff-it was a remarkable reflection of TOMSIC PHYSICAL THERAPY's solid reputation across this medical community. I wanted to share my out-of-office experience and your much-deserved praise. Have a great weekend Ellen!!"

"Ellen, I am beyond impressed by your Nubie therapy!! On Tuesday evening after standing for two consecutive 12+ hour shifts, I stepped out of my car when I got home, and my legs buckled under the back pain. I had a Nubie treatment scheduled for the next day. It was over lunch hour, so it was able to be longer than usual. When I stood up after the treatment, I was startled to realize I didn't have the shooting pain In my back and down my leg. It lasted all day. Today, Wednesday, it persisted. This evening, Thursday, I realized my neck mobility has improved. I've done nothing different in my exercise program. I was not approved for my weekly PT appointment this week and missed it. But subjectivity, I feel like I'm doing at least as well, if not better, than I would be if I was able to have my PT appointment. I know this type of feedback is important....let me know if I can provide any further info...To whoever reads this, please pass on to Ellen and Laura :-)"

"Good Morning Brandye, Thank you so much for your help on Monday. I was in pretty bad shape when you came to the rescue, Very greatful you were willing to offer support, and intuitive about insisting on it. Wheeling me to the ER was above and beyond, and I can't thank you enough for the caring gesture. Then to follow up on your Good Samaritan, Ellen was also insistent about not letting me out of the office without adjusting my crutches, providing a lesson in how to use them, and arranging a knee scooter because even with adjustments and tutoring the crutches and me were a diabolical combination. Tomsic PT staff is truly the best! I feel blessed to have such thoughtful care-givers to work with on my path to improved physical health. Thank you! Naomi"

Besides a few blips from over doing things, my recovery has been really good. I intend to be able to go on long and short hikes after this summer.

"I have been coming to Tomsic PT for many years. Ellen has treated me and all three of my children. Because of an autoimmune disease, I have injuries often and Ellen is always very thorough in my treatments. She has also involved other PT's in the office to access their specialties as well for the benefit of my treatment. Ellen cares about you and has helped me through some tough times and got me back on the road running. Without her, I would never have reached my goal to run a marathon! She is very smart and has helped me and my children understand our injuries and has involved the health care professionals that have been key in our treatment. She always takes time to show me diagrams of the body so that I can see what my problem is and understand it better. The supoport staff is also very kind, patient, and helpful I would recommend Tomsic PT to everyone! "
Oct 03, 2018
"I just “graduated” from an intensely rewarding and helpful therapy program for a complicated soft tissue shoulder repair. Ellen, and here wonderful staff, led me through a thoughtful, progressive and personalized treatment plan as I recovered from surgery and worked to regain both range of motion and strength. Every visit moved the ball forward, educated me further on the healing process, and encouraged and informed my own efforts at home between therapy sessions. I can honestly say that I looked forward to each visit, not only for the excellent treatment and guidance I knew I would receive, but also for the laughs and genuine friendships I built with the therapists, techs, interns and front desk. Thank you all! Highly recommended!"
Feb 23, 2018
"I spent this past winter "living" at Tomsic PT as Laura worked with me after my 2 total knee replacement surgeries. All that Laura did during my appointments along with her encouragement, which motivated me to do my exercises between appointments, allowed me to hike up Engineer Mountain 5 months after my second knee. Everyone at Tomsic is wonderful; it's like being with family when you're there."

Ellen created the perfect regime for me, customized to my desire to ski. It worked perfectly and now I am religiously following the physical regime at home while skiing a few times a week.
