I am really impressed with the treatment I received from Ann! She fit me into her schedule because I live in Alaska. Her friendly exuberance really made my visit fun, but she helped me so much! She created a splint which has really reduced my hand pain. She also taught me simple techniques of moving to reduce pain in my thumb joint. She is very knowledgeable, yet she told me simple things that were practical for me to continue. I will definitely come back again!read more

Anne (PT) and Alisha (PT, Asst) have been great! They put me at ease right away, are great listeners as I explained my injury and diligently explored different exercises for my hands to achieve the results needed to recover from my injury. I can’t forget the front staff either. The gal is always friendly and calm. She set me up with all 10 PT sessions at my first visit, printed me a schedule to take with me and each appointment I never have to wait. The therapists always take me on time. Great work WHT!read more
