Testimonials

I have known and worked with Heather Denman for approximately 18 years.  She is a knowledgeable physical therapist that provides caring therapy to her clients.  Heather continues to seek out education in her area of expertise so that she can pass new ideas and techniques on to her clients and families.  Heather provides a calm yet fun way to do therapy with children.  She also makes sure to educate the family about their child’s diagnosis and treatment plan so they have a better understanding of what to expect.  Heather provides parents with ideas of what they can do at home to help their child progress.  I endorse Heather Denman as a therapist that can help your child.”  ~Kathleen E. Derga, MA, CCC-SLP (speech therapist)

_______________________________________

Heather has been my daughter’s physical therapist for most of her 21 years.  Heather knows how to gently push Katherine to reach her greatest potential with patience, creativity and humor.  Heather easily adapts each therapy session to incorporate Katherine’s interest of the day in order to help motivate her; from letting Katherine ‘chase her’ in her walker to reading to her as she walks or shooting hoops as she stands in her wheelchair, Heather makes PT more like playtime.  Over the years, she has employed her problem-solving skills to address a variety of positioning issues, customize & modify transfers and exercise routines in the home to best suit Katherine as well as us as caregivers.  Since she treated Katherine throughout her growing years, Heather would often trouble-shoot newly emerging issues and prescribe an appropriate change in treatment.  Despite the great variety of problems we have thrown at her, including identifying the best positioning for Katherine in our motorcycle side car and even helping her with ‘bidet target practice’ for personal care issues, Heather has more than been up to the challenge.  Heather is very professional, resourceful and respectful of her families and a very valuable team member to any of her clients.”  ~Pamela (parent)

“My son has cerebral palsy.  Heather Denman has been treating him for 17 years now.  Heather provides my son with physical therapy services related to his condition, but she also never hesitates to go above and beyond the scope of a typical physical therapist to provide ‘whatever it takes’ to make a difference in my son’s life and improve the quality of his life.  She has been with us through many things through the years – hip surgery, spinal fusion, along with other medical issues such as skin breakdown, etc.  Heather has also been very involved in the ever changing, and at times quite complicated, issues of obtaining equipment for my son such as an adaptive wheelchair, an adaptive bike, adaptive foot orthotics, an adaptive standing frame, and adaptive shower chair and bed.  She has used her extensive knowledge base and connections to help us seek out the appropriate equipment and ascertain that equipment by completing the necessary paper work required by insurance companies and other funding sources.  I could not ask for more from a physical therapist for my son and I would recommend Heather Denman to anyone who might be looking for P.T. services.”  ~Nancy (parent)
