A wonderful success story for Dan Allen and his staff at our Apex Lionville clinic! Way to go guys!
My Success Story at Apex Physical Therapy and Fitness Center
I had bilateral knee replacement surgery on December 3, 2013 and after spending a week in Bryn Mawr rehabilitation Hospital, I needed additional physical therapy to regain my abilities to walk, work and exercise. I had never been in physical therapy, so at 64 a new experience awaited. To say that I was apprehensive was an understatement. Although the occupational and physical therapy sessions at Bryn Mawr were very helpful, I had little expectation that I would find the same level of care and professionalism at a local facility. I could not have been more wrong. The care and treatment I received at Apex was every bit as professional, plus the benefit of establishing a truly “working” relationship with a therapy professional made my rehabilitation a definite success. Dan Allen was not only the Clinical Director at Apex, but my personal therapist. From the first day (12/16/13) to my graduation (2/27/14) he handled every situation in my rehabilitation with a clear purpose and direction. He was very attuned to the ups and downs of my personal mindset as we experienced much success and a few down days. He pushed when I needed it and I would be constantly surprised at my progress without even being conscious of the strides we were making weekly and sometimes daily. The few down days were handled with understanding and encouragement, but never without reinforcing the purpose of the journey.
Dan and Apex were exactly what I needed and my observation of the other patients over the ten weeks was that they too were receiving what they needed. There was definitely a team and open tone to the sessions at Apex. I was surprised how many other patients would offer encouragement and positive feedback to each other in a genuine regard for each other. This does not happen by accident. In summary, I am three months into recovering from a major surgery and looking forward and expect a full recovery and I can state honestly I would not be at this wonderful point without Apex, Dan and his staff. I would not hesitate to unconditionally recommend Apex to anyone needing physical therapy from professionals who absolutely care about their patients and their needs.
