Thank you so much for your extraordinary help with our son’s injury. You supported him and our family mentally and medically. You gave us all positive thoughts and hope beyond traditional approaches. You were amazing in turning our son’s outlook to a positive one, and capturing how he thinks! We very much appreciate your great efforts!

I want to let you at MIPT know how much I appreciate your care and professionalism in my treatments during my two knee replacement recoveries. I very much have enjoyed my time with all of you.
I had seen Doug a few years ago for a neck problem, and knew after that that if I needed to have any other care I would return. So, when the knee situation came up I signed up for treatment with him again. After two rounds, I feel like I am now missing “home”. I will happily refer anyone I know to seek help from your staff. I thank them for their sunny dispositions and friendliness.

Sometime late in October of ’06, I stumbled (literally) into Mercer Island Physical Therapy, clumsily wielding crutches. I had been injured 3 months earlier by stepping backwards off of a 2 story building and really screwing up both of my feet. I had undergone one operation on the left and three on the right and had spent July, August and September in bed and in a wheelchair. Several medical staffers had indicated that I might never be able to walk normally again.
I just completed therapy, and had my graduation ceremony two days ago. We had cupcakes, party hats, and I received an actual diploma. (I have it framed and hanging in my bedroom where I can WALK, yes walk by it with pride).
I truly believe that if I had not had the good fortune to hook up with MIPT that I would not be functioning at the level that I currently am. I’ve been back to work now for a little over a month. I can walk with only a slight limp, can go up and down stairs like a somewhat normal person, and can even almost keep up with my two very active grandchildren. (I wasn’t expecting miracles. I couldn’t keep up before the accident.) Plus, I’m getting stronger every day.
I would like very much to express my deepest appreciation, admiration and thanks to the entire staff. I actually had a good time doing all the tortuous exercises and procedures, and somewhere along the line developed a friendship with all of them that I hope lasts forever.
So thanks again to all involved, you are all truly professional, knowledgeable, dedicated and caring individuals, and I owe my ‘quality of life’ to all of you.
Sincerely and with huge gratitude – Bruce Robinson, Snoqualmie WA
