2013 was a great year for us! Another year of meeting and helping fantastic people. I said it once and I’ll say it again we have the best patients! Such a wide variety of people walk through our door: quiet ones, loud ones, the ones that swear from time to time, intense ones, laid back ones, ones with tattoos (some more wild than others).
2013 was such a growing year for us. We grew in both patient volume but also in staff!
The year started out with us adding Shannon to our team! Hard to believe it has already been a year, but she certainly stepped up to the task of getting things moving. Not only is she head liaison to the people but she has assumed many marketing roles for us as well – we are lucky to have her!
In September we brought Danny Westergard PT, DPT on board. As a student I knew Danny was the guy for the job, we just didn’t know if we had the volume to support bringing on a new therapist. We are certainly glad we did. Since bringing Danny on, we have grown exponentially. Not only does he bring a fresh face, new skills, and new attitude – he also brings wonderful drive, desire to learn, and has pushed us to be better!
At Chandler Physical Therapy, we take pride in the detail we use to treat our patients. We track our outcomes as a way of self assessment and to get a picture of how we are doing as a clinic.
We use the FOTO (Focus On Therapeutic Outcomes) to track our results. How did we do? We rated in the top 5% in the nation for effectiveness! To our knowledge we are the only clinic in Chandler currently tracking and reporting our outcomes – this helps us become more recognized by patients and physicians alike!
In October, we were honored to be announced as two of the Top 35 Under 35. This award goes to 35 individuals with significant entrepreneur success under that age of 35 in the state of Arizona! What a treat to be recognized by the Arizona Republic!
Last, but not least, we had the best honor yet – another baby on the way! This time a girl, due on February 18th! We look forward to opening this next chapter in our journey!
All of the success we had we owe to our patients. We couldn’t do it without the support, word of mouth, and patronage you all provide. We are indebted to you for your continued support. Thank you. The best of wishes to you and yours in the coming year!
