Physical Therapy at its best in Charlotte NC!
This is a sponsored post, but only because I was so impressed with Greg Ott and his staff that I asked him if I could write this up.I promise all observations and opinions written below are entirely my own.
Let me start off by saying that I have worked in the Healthcare Industry for about 25 years. I am not saying this for any reason other than to assure you that I am very knowledgeable & experienced in this area.
My husband, Andy, is currently a patient at Greg Ott Physical Therapy. He had shoulder/bicep surgery at the end of April and started physical therapy the day after the surgery!
People need to see a physical therapist for a number of different reasons, ranging from sprains/strains to postoperative care.
Greg Ott Physical Therapy handles it all with the same level of expertise and compassion.
From the moment you walk into this medical building, you start to feel a bit better as the anxiety starts falling away. The atrium is full of beautiful trees, flowers, garden statues and picket fences! It is absolutely gorgeous!
Once through the front door, you go over to the right to find Greg Ott Physical Therapy.
The Front Office:
One of the first things that stood out for me, when I went to this practice with Andy for the first time was that everyone was so friendly. We were greeted with huge, welcoming smiles as they asked Andy his name & verified his insurance and copay amount. That was the last time they needed to ask his name. From that point on, they remembered him! They seemed to know every single person that walked through their door.
The second notable impression I had was that we didn’t have to wait long at all. In fact, there has never been a wait during the entire time Andy has been going there. He pretty much walks in, they say hi & send him right back.
The Clinical Staff:
When Andy goes back, the first thing they do is apply heat and electrical stimulation to his shoulder & bicep. Andy sits there for a while and chit chats with the staff and other patients. It’s like he’s just hanging out with some friends.
Once the time is up, Andy is released from the heat & electrodes. The next step is for Andy to go through an individually designed circuit of activities that was created specifically for him.
After the circuit is completed, Andy heads to one of the tables to get worked on by one of the highly skilled physical therapists.
This is the time when the physical therapist needs to stretch, push, pull & rotate Andy’s shoulder & bicep. For Andy, unfortunately, this part is painful but very necessary to get him back to where he needs to be. Thankfully, all of the physical therapists at Greg Ott Physical Therapy are experienced experts in their field as well as very caring and compassionate.
In my opinion, speaking from personal experience with other local Physical Therapy Centers, they all pale in comparison to Greg Ott Physical Therapy.
The Office Environment:
The last thing that was so evident to me as I was just observing the center when I was there with Andy (I know, it’s weird that I was observing everybody and everything….it’s because I have so much experience with medical offices & how they should be running, I just can’t stop myself 🙂 ).
Anyway, the last thing I noticed was how efficient they work & how well all of the staff members communicate with each other. They all just rely on each other & chip in where needed. The practice runs like a well-oiled machine – flawless!
I know, without a doubt, anytime I or a loved one needs physical therapy again, we will be heading straight to Greg Ott Physical Therapy. No question about that! I hope that all of you reading this will do the same!
The Center is located in Park Place on Wendover Road.
