Back in October of 2018 I ruptured my Achilles tendon playing basketball that required surgery, it was a sad setback as I'm a very active person. I'm so happy I found Andy and Stephanie they helped me for 4 months go through all the proper processes to recovery successfully from my injury! I highly recommend Lake Sammamish PT, they are very knowledgeable and always provide a fun and positive experience.read more
Andy at Lake Sammamish Physical Therapy is great to work with. He listened carefully as I described my symptoms and came up with a plan that is helping me recover quickly. I like the atmosphere at Lake Sammamish PT and I also really like the App they set me up on that has all of my prescribed exercises on my phone. It makes it easy to remember and perform the exercises at home.read more
With an ankle injury and my ankle doctor referral, I stopped on Lake Sammamish PT for 2 simple reasons: 1 - a high grade on Google, 2 - the ability to schedule an appointment with the doctor sooner than all others PT's in the area. From the first phone call until the end of my recovery, I felt the team’s friendly attitude and warm atmosphere. This is when you feel very comfortable in a new place, and glad to visit it. I was met by Dr. Andy. And I can not say more - his personality, knowledge, ability to listen and feel the needs and problems of the person, as well as the style of communication and chosen treatment plan, led me to delight. This is when you are in safe hands, when you receive all the necessary information and understanding of what is happening, when you know for sure that not a single word or need will be left unattended, and each visit will be filled with positivity, smiles, laughter, and, well, hard (moderately), but important work aimed at your early recovery. Here I want to notice one important detail. We all can learn something. But in some areas of knowledge, it is not enough just to know the theory very well, and even it is not enough to have a lot of practice, but it is very important to feel and have the ability to understand what you are doing by your own nature. And Dr. Andy undoubtedly has this talent. Many words in my review, but I really mean what I say. In my whole life, this is only the second person who perfectly understands the human body and how to help its recovery. Very attentive, super responsive, full of understanding and necessary knowledge, pleasant in communication, causing a feeling of reliability, and giving excellent results in a short term - a huge thank you for that experience with you, Andy! Wishing Lake Sammamish PT much further success! Sincerely, Elenaread more
This is the best place to get physical therapy! The staff are knowledgeable and effective but still make the whole experience a lot of fun. I would 100% recommend Lake Sammamish Physical Therapy.read more
All the staff is very knowledgeable and super friendly. They are results driven with treatment plans that will actually get you better! I have been to other clinics in the past and nothing compares to Lake Sammamish Physical Therapy and the quality of care that Dr. Andy provides. Everything they have you do in your treatment plan is for a purpose, there are never any mindless exercises. Their clinic also has a dietician on staff, who I had the pleasure of meeting with. Just like the other staff members she is very knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend meeting with her! I feel like I have a much better understanding of what foods to eat and what I need to adjust in my diet in order to reach my fitness goals. With all the "fad" diets out there, it was refreshing to meet with a professional and expert in the field who could help me navigate my own personal meal plan. I was able to ask her questions and we drafted a plan specific for my body and its needs. It was a great experience and I will be back! Overall you can tell that the staff and company as a whole cares deeply about their patients and for that I give 5 stars.read more
I have found treatment explained to my satisfaction along with exercises to be done at home with stipulation to stop if painful at all. I am completely satisfied in all aspects of my treatment.
”-Mary“I can't thank Dr. Andy Didricksen enough for FIXING my back. I have been extremely active ever since I can remember but I've dealt with back pain from a herniated disc for the last year and a half. I was out of shape, couldn't do the things I love to do (basketball) and it affected every aspect of my life. After working with a couple other PT's didn't do me any good, I went to Andy for a last ditch effort. After a month or two of working with him I was back in shape, playing basketball again, and generally happier. Go see him!”-Matt A.“This place worked magic for me. Dr. Andy, the clinic's director, is a one of those special individuals who holds an incredible body of knowledge about how bodies work, and what needs to be done to heal them. He is also intuitive, knowing how to motivate, educate and inspire.
I walked into the clinic with so much pain in my neck, shoulders and back that I hadn't had a good night's sleep in months and I had curtailed all the physical activities--hiking, dancing, cross country skiing and more-- that brought me joy. I was depressed, believing I would go through the rest of my life as an impaired old lady.
The first session gave me hope. The second session inspiration. Today I'm enjoying all the exercise I need and I am in a terrific mood. I totally recommend Lake Sammamish PT to anyone who wants a partner in healing.”-Karla S.“When I began feeling pain in my hip and upper leg, I hobbled around for several weeks waiting for things to get better... My wife urged me to seek a referral for physical therapy, which I later asked my doctor to provide... It wasn't more than four weeks at physical therapy before I began to feel real relief. I was able to stand without experiencing pain after only a few minutes and have been returning to my regular activities after months of dealing with being incapacitated by my pain. I thank the team at Lake Sammamish PT for their terrific help and look forward to hiking again this spring.”-Terry W.
