“Keri had her surgery at Gundersen Health in LaCrosse. Her older sister had physical therapy a couple years ago at Veterans Memorial Hospital so I requested to come back here with Keri,” states Vanessa Picha, Keri’s mother. “They work so well with our schedule and are so close to home. Plus Brad has a great rapor with Keri. They get along very well and he pushes her when she needs to be pushed without being too assertive.” ~Vanessa

“I was so happy I could come here on skilled care and be near family and friends during my recovery. People are just so friendly here, not that they weren’t friendly at Mayo, but its different here. People are more concerned about you as a person,” adds Irv. “I worked with all areas of the rehab department and they did an unbelievable job. It must have been frustrating for them at first when I could do about nothing, but their encouragement was wonderful and there was a lot of it. It was so good to finally feel like I was getting somewhere. They pushed me, and I worked harder, and I always tried to give them more effort than they asked for. They had me do some very interesting things, like standing on tools making me balance myself, and many other very different exercises and I feel they were all worthwhile.” ~ Irv

“I am a very active person and not having a workable shoulder was a fear,” states Dorie. “I knew it was obvious I had to have this surgery since I couldn’t raise my arm, but I was very uncertain about the amount of flexibility I would have following. I just had to hope it would turn out well since he couldn’t promise anything. Laurel Hagensick was my therapist and right away she was confident after assessing my situation,” adds Dorie. “Laurel put me at ease and gave me a positive outlook. She explained with hard work and diligence, I should have a good outcome, so we worked hard together. I took about six weeks of physical therapy, twice per week and right away there was progress which continued every time. Laurel just knew how to get the maximum flexibility out of my arm. She is obviously very talented and very good at what she does.” ~ Dorie

“I told them in LaCrosse that Waukon had a good therapy department, so I continued my physical, occupational and speech therapy all at Veterans Memorial Hospital. They are so great and like my second family! I continued coming to therapy, two to three times a week, through August, working nearly two hours each day, going from one therapist to the next. They were all such great support to me. They taught me how to walk and regain my balance so I wasn’t dragging my feet anymore. They encouraged me to look around, describe the things on the wall, read the signs, etc., all helping with my speech and memory It’s great to have family and I have the best family in the world! My wife was my doctor and my nurse, and I got a good one,” Tim adds, “Everyone at the hospital was great there—I would highly recommend them all! They are like a family. They really care. This small town hospital is truly a family and that helps you heal.” ~ Tim

“I was having so much pain in my arm that I couldn’t even hold a cup of coffee in my hand,” states Robert Timmerman, OT patient from Waukon. “After just a few weeks of coming in for occupational therapy treatments, my pain is almost completely gone. At first, I really didn’t think it would work so well, but Tami has done wonders. And she is great to work with, too.” ~ Robert
