BODY RESTORED, DREAMS REALIZED.

“After a climbing accident on Mt. Kilimanjaro 2.5 years ago, Dr. Chad Rappaport, DPM, FACFAS rebuilt my foot—and I want to thank him again for all he’s done for me. Since my surgery, I have been able to continue my triathlon passion. I have competed in three Half-Ironman competitions and several half marathons since my surgery. Recently, I was able to achieve a dream when I completed a full Ironman Triathlon. This has been my goal for the past 10 years, and without Dr. Rappaport, it would never have been possible. Dr. Rappaport, thank you so much for your expertise, care, and compassion. You are a fine surgeon, and your patients are truly blessed to be under your care. I am ever so grateful for you, and wish you all the best!”

LAYING THE GROUNDWORK FOR HEALING

“Dr. Kayal is simply the best. I am feeling unbelievably great—so thanks! Anyone who sees me walk would have no idea I had knee surgery less than one week ago. Some stiffness, sure, but it’s much better than I ever would have imagined so soon after having the procedure. Some good, old-fashioned hard work in physical therapy and I should be, as you say, “back in the game.”

QUALITY CARE FROM A WINNING TEAM

“I came to the Center in so much pain that Dr. Golz personally walked me up to your office. I have been raving about the treatment I got from your staff. First, the receptionist was clearly understanding of my pain and went out of her way for me. Then, I met Kendall—who could not do enough for me and had concern on her face like my daughter would have. The x-ray tech was also kind. Yesterday I went in for my appointment only to find out I was a week early. Again, the receptionist went out of her way to make me feel comfortable and to try to accommodate me. You can imagine my surprise about all of this treatment, which is not typical of medical staff. I always try to make time to give accolades and kudos, so please extend my gratefulness for the kindness extended to me by you and your staff. Keep up the good work. It is greatly appreciated!”
