"I became acquainted with Green Room in 2018 when my wife went there for PT following a serious, major surgery.

It was quickly apparent that Green Room operated on a different model:  direct, personal, calm, focused.

A very, very welcome change from the too-prevalent conveyor belt/ factory model of health care.

The PT care was always and only delivered one-on-one with tremendous focus on the patient.  The only thing the surgeon got wrong was his prediction that my wife could expect to recover up to 60% of her previous functionality.

With the Green Room's help and her own hard work, she recovered total functionality.

So when I needed PT following a hip replacement surgery in 2020 I went to Green Room immediately.  At that point it had moved to its new location; a larger, open, light-filled space.  But what hadn't changed was the calm, careful, patient-focused one-on-one care.  And when the pandemic arrived, Green Room quickly figured out how to continue to deliver necessary care in a safe setting.

Five months later, a second hip replacement.  And a return to the Green Room.  As I told the wonderful Dr. Ashley, "you know you're doing something very right when your patients look forward to PT!"

 

The ultimate result:  I walk five miles a day, every day. Pain free.  Sixteen months after one hip replacement, ten months after a second one.

In case it isn't clear yet:  to anyone and everyone looking for highest quality PT, I offer an unconditional, absolute recommendation for the Green Room and its staff of superb, caring therapists."

"The Green Room PT practice has kept me in great running shape! As I embark on marathon training for a third time, I know that Dr. Ashley and her team will be there every step of the way. The whole team goes above and beyond for the patients and are available to answer any questions! I love that their services are expanding and that they are always looking for new ways to serve their clients. Anytime someone needs physical therapy, I make sure to refer them to the Green Room!"

"I was in a hit and run accident on my motorcycle.  My insurance was frozen and I wasn't able to pay my bills.  The green room treated me without getting paid for almost 2 years. I've never meet a practice that cared more for the patient than a payment than this one.  They helped through a tough time and I'm truly grateful 🙏, thank you green room "

"I’d like to take this opportunity to share my experience with The Green Room Physical Therapy.  By the time you reach the “golden” years, you’ve had the chance to rely on physical therapy following surgery, or to mend another issue that may require special attention to heal.

Over the last few years, I’ve had 4 surgeries on my left foot. Each time following surgery, physical therapy was necessary to get the foot ready for every day activities again. By the time I had completed the 3rd round of PT at the 3rd location of PT, never fully satisfied with the end results. I would find myself waiting for the therapist to return to give further instructions once I completed what I was working on. Sometimes, this would become a good portion of my appointment if they were busy. The Green Room is just the opposite. I got the pleasure of meeting Dr. Ashley on my first visit and I haven’t regretted it at all. She explained everything she was doing, she was concerned about any unusual changes that would take place, she had a great memory from previous visits and kept excellent notes when they were needed for reference. I never felt more confident in my therapist at all. The staff is extremely friendly and flexible to the patient’s needs and Gabby is sweet at the front desk. Never once have I questioned my choice in calling The Green Room and feel lucky to have found them. They are not the size of the larger corporate therapy businesses, but they offer just the same if not more. In this case, size DOES matter. The best things come in small packages."

"I have spent most of my 28 years in and out of the ER and physical therapy due to chronic pain in my joints and tendons.  Unfortunately, in February, I needed to have surgery that left me physically disabled and in more pain.  As doctors urged me to consider another surgery, a friend of mine recommended I try Green Room Physical Therapy before making any decisions. Feeling desperate, I called and they started working me right away.  They helped me understand my body, what adds to my pain, and what I can do to work against my chronic pain condition.  They use massage, Graston technique, stabilization, and muscular release therapy to help me.  With their help, I’m learning to manage my aching joints and tendons.  I’m so grateful that I started going to Green Room Physical Therapy.  My half-hour with them a few times a week has been the single most helpful thing that has aided in my recovery.  I highly recommended that if you are in need a physical therapy, that you consider Green Room Physical Therapy."

Pelvic Floor Testimonial

PF testimonial 9-8.jpg

“I just wanted to take the time to talk about my experience with The Green Room and Pelvic Floor health in particular. I recently gave birth to my second child, a beautiful healthy little girl. It was a quick and easy delivery, but my body wasn’t able to bounce back like it had with my son two years prior. Instead of recovering normally as time progressed, I started experiencing intense pain in my hip. The pain became overwhelming and I was having a hard time doing normal activities. I couldn't play with my son, I couldn't carry the baby up to bed, I couldn't even sleep at night. My hips and pelvis just felt so unstable and painful. I felt broken. I think a lot of women have trouble admitting that something is wrong, especially when it has to do with anything 'down there'. I’m so glad that I finally sought help, the problem wasn’t going away on its own and I needed some relief. The Green Room was able to see me much faster than anywhere else that I looked. They have treated me with nothing but compassion and respect. My therapist Irene has been instrumental in my recovery. She's so knowledgeable about the pelvic floor and how it can affect your whole body. I started feeling relief almost right away and after a few sessions with the right mix of knowledge and exercises I'm starting to feel like myself again. I can do things again. I can get down on the floor and play with my children. I can't thank the Green Room enough. Here I am enjoying a walk with my children, something that I wasn't able to do before receiving help at The Green Room.”

"I am so thankful for the physical therapy care from The Green Room PT practice! I decided to train and complete a half marathon this spring, and knew with my history of knee and hip issues I would need consistent PT treatment in order to be able to run pain and injury-free. Dr. Ashley always provided excellent care during appointments, and set me up with helpful strength and warm-up exercises I could include in my running routine. The office is consistently expanding with new tools and treatments for patients to use, and I always appreciated time in the compression pants after weekend long runs. I successfully completed my half marathon goal without any injuries or issues! I am glad I have the Green Room PT team to support me in living a healthy life, and always recommend their practice whenever anyone I know is seeking physical therapy."

"When I arrived at The Green Room, I had been dealing with a shoulder injury a little over 6 weeks.  Prior, I had been to two other physical therapy practices.  In the past their approaches had helped me with previous injuries.

But nothing was helping me address the inflammation and constant, excruciating pain.  No heat or cold.  No exercise.  No bodywork.  Everything just made the pain worse.  Honestly, I was kind of desperate when I came to The Green Room.  I didn't know what to expect with the red light therapy but I had to give it a try.

Thank goodness for you all and the services you have to offer.  I mean it.  I told Sarah in person but I have no problem writing it down.

The atmosphere and how you all treat patients is the best. You listen and we are heard.

 

The laser therapy did what ultrasound could not do - bring down both the inflammation and pain - and it started after just one treatment.

The constant shoulder pain was robbing me of a good night sleep all of those weeks but I wasn't aware how depleted I had been until I started feeling more like myself after using the light therapy bed.  It helped me in ways I didn't realize I needed.

I am not 100 percent yet but I am not in constant pain and my shoulder injury is no longer waking me up at night.  I am exercising at home again which I had to stop completely because of my injury.  I am so thankful to know I can come to The Green Room when I need.  And I am excited about the second location which will be opening later this year and is close to where I live.

Thank you."

"I LOVE,LOVE, LOVE this physical therapy group.  I have been seeing Ashley for over a year and can honestly say that after being in constant pain with minimal movement for over 3 years, I am now able to move freely with little to no discomfort.  My therapy is customized to how I feel on the day I come in so my specific issue is addressed.  She is keeping me mobile and you can’t put a price on that.  In addition to the therapy, this group is sooo personable and accommodating. I love them all."

"At an otherwise heathy and active 72, I was laid low in January by a fall and compound fracture of my left femur (the “big one” --thigh bone).  After 9 weeks of "no weight” and no spring in sight, yes, I was depressed.  I got to Green Room on the recommendation of another local therapist (Jon VanKempen) with whom I was duly impressed.  Once into the Green Room Program, I became very impressed all over again.  Having had both knees and shoulders replaced, I’ve had my fill local PT factories.  Irene was a joy to work with, despite my glum attitude; she kept trying new and expanded therapies—especially helpful for tangential pain and stiffness from being in bed or a wheel chair for 9 weeks.  Slowly, the healing pain and strength began to meld and I realized that I was getting better and that Irene’s patience was most responsible.  Just now, I have resumed my normal alternate days workout regimen.  I still have residual ancillary knee and ankle pain, but that is yielding to the exercise.  I trust these therapists with my life and limb and recommend that you do too."

"I was a patient at the Green Room last year after having a tumor removed from my thoracic spine. I was very weak, my balance was poor, and I needed a cane. After several months of therapy with Ashley I was stronger than I'd been in years, the cane was retired, and my balance was restored. All the staff at the Green Room are such nice people that it was always a pleasure to go for my sessions...and I was able to see progress every week. Ashley taught me many exercises I could do at home, so I could continue to stay strong without getting bored doing the same exercises every day. I'd previously gone to elsewhere for PT, but found the one-on-one sessions at the Green Room make all the difference....I always knew I was doing the exercises correctly because Ashley was watching to make sure I did so and was able to correct me before I got into bad habits. Also, working one-on-one allowed her to constantly be adjusting my routine to get maximal results. I recommend the Green Room to anyone I meet who needs PT. They're the best!"

"My name is Jeff Hellkamp and I have just finished a long course of treatment at The Green Room Physical Therapy. Thanks to them, I’m back walking pain free.

Let me start out first by saying that I have been fortunate in my life by not having a great need for Physical Therapy. This was only my second time in needing treatment at a Physical Therapy Office. What I found at The Green Room however, really opened my eyes to what a well-run, compassionate and caring facility can do in the treatment of injuries.

I was referred to The Green Room by my podiatrist who was looking to treat my chronic Achilles Tendinosis.  I was in a really bad way being severely limited in walking and overall pain free movement.  As a person who works most of the day on my feet, I needed help.

I was introduced to Dr. Irene Somerville and by the very first visit I felt that my treatment was going to be a success.  Dr. Irene was very knowledgeable and displayed an enthusiasm in making my treatment a success.  I was at once put at ease and a plan was quickly developed for my treatment.  What really impressed me was Dr. Irene’s ability to try different treatments even if they didn’t always work with everyone. One treatment actually helped me more than any other even though it isn’t always successful with Achilles injuries. Dr Irene is a true professional and a wonderful asset for her patients.

When you visit the office you first notice how calm it is. Not a mass of patients all waiting or jumping from area to area.  You are greeted cordially by the administrative assistant who attends to your payment and paperwork. You sit briefly and then you are off to your treatment. Simple.  The treatment areas are very clean and well equipped.  You have privacy.  The best part is that while being treated you generally stay in the same room.  You are not asked to move from station to station to station like my first Physical Therapy treatment location.

Dr. Bertorelli has made The Green Room into a first class facility that provides excellent care in a calm, professional manner.  You actually feel so much better in just going there for treatment.  All I can say now is Thank you."

“My experiences at the green room have always been positive. All the therapists are extremely competent, dedicated and personable. I feel like I’m in really good hands when I am there. And in these extremely challenging times, the green room is taking every precaution to keep all of their clientele safe! I wouldn’t hesitate recommending anyone to the Green Room.

I started going to the Green Room when Dr. Bertorelli was the only physical therapist. It’s amazing how her practice has grown in such a short amount of time. She is always excellent to work with & has designed a wonderful exercise program for me that I access through an app.

The Green Room has all state of the art equipment, including laser bed therapy.

I also cannot leave out Sarah who runs the front desk & wears many hats at Green Room. She’s always so helpful and patient no matter how busy it gets over there.”
