Marlene’s Story

What was the obstacle in coming to physical therapy?
The doctor who did my surgery said “all you need to do it walk’, but I really felt that he was wrong and that I needed the therapy. And I still think I did.

What was your problem prior to coming in for physical therapy?
It was my back, but Nick helps me in a lot of ways.

Did you try anything else that didn’t work?
I only tried one thing. I went to the doctor that did my surgery and I told him my back was hurting so he put a needle in my back. It didn’t help at all so I quit that. I went one time and one time was enough because I think that physical therapy is what I need. And Nick’s the guy!

If a family member or friend were experiencing pain and hesitant on getting physical therapy, what advice would you give them?
I’d tell them to come to Nick. I’d even give them a map!

What did you enjoy the most about come to Preferred?
Everybody here is nice and friendly. Everybody. It’s just a nice atmosphere.

Did we help you to achieve your goal?
He’s helped me a lot. And right now, I have no pain at all. I’m not hurting. And that feels good!
