PHYSICAL AND OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

What Patients and Therapists Are Saying:

 

"Brown Rogers is a business that truly focuses on quality of care and well being of patients and staff members.  The therapists at Brown Rogers were some of the most talented individuals I have ever seen work, a rare compilation of talent and skill.  They are kind and compassionate while possessing and understanding of the human body that is well beyond the average scope, and are able to provide true 1 one 1 care." 
 
RH, Travelling PT, DPT, OCS

"Brown Rogers was recommended to me by a family member, and when I told my doctor, he said I had made an excellent choice. I found this to be absolutely right. I was fortunate to have Marieke for my therapist. Her expertise and encouragement was largely responsible for my progress. She realized that my age contributed to my having to rest, but we always had a full workout. Each time I left tired and felt it was worth my effort."

 

"After finally discussing an embarrassing condition with my gastroenterologist, I received a diagnosis of pelvic organ prolapse, and was referred to Jana for pelvic floor therapy. I quickly noticed a major improvement, not only in my physical condition, but also to my understanding and emotional response to this condition. The compassionate interaction with Jana, combined with learning multiple pelvic floor exercises has improved my condition and I feel I can make more educated decisions regarding the options available to me.  The supportive listening and guidance 
has totally improved how I view myself and my medical conditions. I interface better with those around me and, surprisingly, have developed a more positive self-image through this process." 

 

"Andrew is so kind and patient with his patients.  I’ve watched him work with individuals from a distance while doing my exercises.  He walks and talks, helps and aids all that he is involved with, explaining and always giving great positive assurance and comfort.  This is a great place to come and get healed and move with greater mobility.  I would definitely recommend BR for healing." 

 

"Therapy is not something that we can do alone.  It takes the guidance and skill of dedicated staff and a caring environment. Justin and Marieke at  Brown Rogers gave me that.  Thanks again for being there when I needed help.  I wish all of you well and will not hesitate to recommend Brown Rogers to anyone in need."  J. B.

 

"Y’all are awesome.  Change Nothing.  Thank you, Kristin!"

 

"Kristie, You are friendly,  professional, and very good at your profession!"

 

"Claire is so committed to helping patients.  Her energy is contagious!"

 

"I appreciate all the hard work you have done.  For the first time I understand what a good therapist does, and there may be some light at the end of the tunnel."

 

"Kristen, Thank you for helping me with the water exercises.  I saw my physician last week and she feels my knee and back are much improved."

 

"I can't thank you enough for helping me with my shoulder pain.  Your compassion, professionalism and genuine concern was greatly comforting!"
