Rockaway Beach, NY
Lisfranc Sprain, Tendonitis, fractures in 2nd and 3rd toes (all on right foot)
Non-operative treatment including bracing and physical therapy
Why did you choose Rothman?
I chose Rothman initially as a recommendation from a family member and was immediately treated with the care I needed physically and mentally at my first appointment. My doctor understood not only the urgency of which I needed to be back on my feet again but how important it was for me to do so without an operation.
Describe your experience.
My experience at Rothman exceeded my expectations. Even as a familial recommendation, I typically meet doctors with a bit of hesitation, as I haven’t had the best luck in the past. At my first appointment, my doctor continued to reassure me that I would be okay, was adamant about setting up a treatment plan that would cater not only for my lifestyle but also my level of discipline (which is different with every client). My doctor gave me clear directions and a timeline to follow and even frequently called to check up on my progress (sometimes even on their day off). They listened to me and would tweak treatment along the way if needed. The care I received felt genuine and was exactly what I needed after my most traumatizing life event. Now that I have made one hundred percent recovery and am back to running ultramarathons, I can’t help but be grateful in a way words can’t describe to have received the care that I did.
What would you recommend to patients considering treatment?
I would recommend making an appointment with Rothman as soon as possible-they won’t be disappointed and will be in the best of care. I hope that I won’t need to go back to Rothman, but now know where to turn should I ever need their help in the future.
