Below are excerpts from notes we’ve received from past patients. While these results are specific to each individual and in no way guarantee similar outcomes, we’re proud of the successes we’ve had.

It is with great pleasure that I write an appreciation and recommendation for Dr.Tarek El-Shikh; he was my physical therapist from January 6, 2016 until January 28, 2016. Dr. El-Shikh is a highly competent, practical and compassionate. He was very patient with me during my therapy and offered many practical as well as constructive suggestions to make my therapy a success. It has only been one month since my surgery (January 4, 2016) and I am already driving and doing many of my normal everyday activities (I am 68 years old) I thank Dr. El-Shikh for all he has done to make my rehabilitation such a success.
With much thanks and gratitude. Patricia Werner

I’m not sure I can fully express how grateful I am for helping me gain back so much of the strength and mobility that I had lost over the years. Every time I felt as if I couldn’t continue, someone at Progressive Therapeutics was right there encouraging me and helping me to keep going. Without their caring and flexible approach, I never would have been able to complete my treatment program. In these days of impersonal service and “by the numbers” approach, your group stands out as an organization that care about each patient and (their) individual progress.
Sincerely, Julia Smith

Progressive Therapy, After all that has happened, I just want to let you know that it has been a blessing to be introduced to Progressive Therapeutics. I want to thank all of you at Progressive Therapeutics for letting me be a part of a great program. While attending, those were some very special days for me. It has been a great gift being able to watch you all help others.
Thanks! Carter Eleanor

Progressive Therapeutics is unique in that just about every person I have come in contact with, from the office staff to the therapists, seems to care about my well-being. These people are professional, caring, encouraging and helpful. The physical therapy sessions I have had at Progressive have definitely improved the quality of my life.
Thanks, Aiza Haider

My physical therapist has gone beyond the ordinary to motivate me to achieve the extraordinary, and somehow work with my mind, body, and spirit. It is more than physical therapy. When I think in great gratitude to God for bringing me to Progressive, I think of ethics, service, excellence, and consistency, people who genuinely care and want to work with someone such as myself who wants to really recover from a very serious surgery. For them, each with their own unique personality and wisdom, it is more than physical therapy, for them, it is their passion to serve patients and help motivate and work with them to achieve the best that is possible for the patient. I would refer anyone to Progressive Therapeutics!

When I set out in 2009 to find a physical therapy provider, I was searching for the best care possible. I have no doubt that at Progressive Therapeutics that is exactly what I found.

From day one the entire staff at Progressive Therapeutics made me feel welcome. They all were focused on my needs and were always available to help with any questions I had. I had a clear understanding of what my goals were and how we would achieve them. I would strongly recommend Progressive Therapeutics to my friends and family and wouldn’t hesitate to use Progressive in the future if the need arose.

I would like to send you my heartfelt THANKS! For the past five years I experienced a continuous pain shooting down my left side from my hip to my toes. I could only walk short distances and crawled up and down steps. My doctors never mentioned you as a possible solution to my pain and I DEFINITELY didn’t approve of open back surgery, so I was just depressed and lived with it.
Then, I saw your add in the post tribune detailing your facility and services. I took advantage of your FREE second opinion and found your Therapists to be more helpful and informative, thank you for all your help.
Julia Banks

I wanted you and your staff to know that my back and hip are pain free. You have a wonderful talent which has given me my life back – I even enjoy walking. Best regards to your staff – they were very professional and very kind.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for all of the time and effort you put for my rehabilitation. Recovery from stroke is not something one could accomplish without direction and assistance. The work ethic you instilled is serving me well. I know you adjusted your schedule to accommodate my early morning work, this was above and beyond the call of duty. I am looking forward to coming back home to work on advancing my recovery in your office.” Sincerely with much gratitude,
Donald Bennett

My physical therapist, at Progressive Therapeutics, has helped me decrease my back pain and has improved my walking. I feel that she is not only very competent, but extremely compassionate. I have also observed these same attributes as I saw other therapists helping clients. Moreover, I also enjoy the warm, inviting atmosphere that pervades Progressive. I feel that this is achieved by the friendliness of all the members of the staff and office personnel. I, therefore highly recommend Progressive Therapeutics for anyone who requires physical therapy.

God’s guidance delivered me to you at a time when I had been searching for relief from severe pain in my back and neck that had greatly restricted my activities.
