Shauna and Heather are great. The facilities are top-notch and spotlessly clean. A lot of care has been taken to get the most benefit out of each session for the patient. A pleasure to be here.
The McKinney staff is fantastic. The length of my therapy helped a lot and I′ll miss y′all!
Please praise this staff for their high level of professionalism and high level of encouraging their patients to do better. The atmosphere was upbeat, sunny, comfortable and very nurturing of hope & self-confidence.
I had a great physical therapist, Sandy at Flower Mound. Everyone was great, my injury will take a year or so before I can get back to physical activity, but the staff has provided me with the tools to aid my recovery. Thanks.
This is my third time going to the GTC in Arlington. The staffs there are wonderful. They will always be my physical therapy center. The staffs- Chris, Jamail, Frashy, Cory, Shauna and Lisa- thank you for making me feel at ease.
The treatment I had was great and I will definitely use you in the future if needed!
I was a patient at GTC twice in 8 years, and received excellent PT which allowed me to care for my young children on my own again. Sandy and her team were amazing, and I continue to refer friends to her. Thank you!
Degree and school(s) attended: BSOT (Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy) from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center 1998; CHT (Certified Hand Therapist) from Hand Therapy Certification Commission 2010
Date employment began with GTC (year only is fine): 2014
I have been an Occupational Therapist for 16 years, and I have worked with hand patients for 15 of those years. My career focus is hand therapy and in helping people regain functional independence in their lives after trauma. I have treated a wide variety of orthopedic, neurological and rheumatology issues including, but not limited to shoulder injuries, elbow/wrist/hand neuropathies, fractures, wounds, amputations/replantations, and tendon repairs. And, I am proficient in fabricating dynamic and static custom splints, as well as scar and edema management.
I love the outdoors and spending time with my family. I enjoy watching my teenage daughter play volleyball for her Varsity and Club teams, playing with our two large dogs, working in the yard, painting, getting crafty and traveling. I also enjoy spending time with close friends.
I understand the importance of therapy after trauma as I recovered from a nearly fatal motor vehicle accident as a young adult. And, because of this accident, I decided to get a therapy degree in order to help make a difference in patient’s lives. Through my personal experiences, skills and dedication to my patients, my goal is to give my patients a better quality of life after trauma.
Degree and school(s) attended: Texas Tech University – BS in exercise physiology 1991
Texas Woman’s University – MS in physical therapy 1995
Date employment began with GTC: 2013
Career experiences: I have been a physical therapist since 1995. I have worked in a variety of settings, but predominantly my experience (and my preference) is in orthopedics.
Personal interests/hobbies (esp if relates to your treatment interests): I have a very active lifestyle. I am a gym junkie and love to be outdoors. I enjoy going to the park with my 14 yr old son to kick around the soccer ball, playing with our dog, riding horses, shopping with my husband, and traveling!
Personal statement: Being a very active person, I’ve had my share of injuries. To me there is nothing worse than being told you need to stop doing something you enjoy in order to allow healing to occur or prevent further injury. I’ve become very creative at times in finding ways to maintain my activity level while allowing injuries to heal. I strive to do this for my patients as well! Whether through activity modification, education in better techniques, or balancing muscle strength and improving biomechanics, my goal is to return patients to the activities they enjoy and improve their overall quality of life!
