Highly recommend FOI, Dr. Gasser, APRN Elio Hernandez and my PT Team, Joel and Net. This was my first major injury (torn meniscus, MCL and ACL) resulting in surgery and I was so nervous. Dr. Gasser and Elio Hernandez got me in that morning. The office staff worked quickly to get my referral that morning from my Primary Care Provider. They recommended PT for four weeks to strengthen the muscles around and wait for the MCL to possibly heal itself. This made my recovery and surgery so much better. Because of their expertise to wait, the MCL healed and only needed surgery on my ACL and meniscus. I am now six months out and have started to run a little bit in PT and feel almost back to ‘normal’. The FOI PT office staff and therapists at the Telecom location were great too! Their office staff was always friendly and greeted my by name. Hilary always checked in with me and helped me with insurance and scheduling. Gerrica helped with lots of insurance and PCP questions and referrals too! Joel and Net were great. They knew exactly how to help me move through the steps needed to accomplish the goals I wanted. It will be bitter sweet when the time has come to not go anymore because they all have been a major impact in my life and part of my every day routine. I can’t say it enough. I highly recommend FOI!
