Fast Five...Patient Highlight!
This week we are chatting with another one of our wonderful patients, Lisa Campanella!
How long have you been coming to Empire PT?
Many years: first for my hip back in 2017 and most recently after shoulder surgery.
What is your favorite part of coming here?
My fun conversations with my PT, Liz! When I went from 5 visits per week to 3, I missed seeing her everyday!
Not surprising-Liz is pretty great!
I also love that the atmosphere at Empire is relaxed and not overwhelming. Everyone receives one on one attention.
Lisa is making great progress at PT. When she is not here, she enjoys dining out and gives the BEST recommendations for wineries & local restaurants! Thanks Lisa!
