WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY...
I had major hand surgery on November 12, 2015 for Dupuytren’s Contracture that involved a skin graft from my leg and I needed hand therapy afterwards to re-learn how to use my hand. I was extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Heidi Wills. Heidi did an impeccable job of making me feel comfortable by connecting with me and getting me back to perfect health. I went from having half of my hand strength to winning the CrossFit Open Southwest Region in my age category at the time (45-49) three months later. Without the amazing therapy that Heidi put me through, this would not have been possible. Thank you Heidi for your incredible level of care. It made all the difference!

When I first had shoulder surgery I was very concerned that I would not get my mobility back and that I would not lift weights again.
Then I met my occupational therapist, Heidi Wills. She was patient, friendly, and informative as to what needed to be done to regain my mobility and strength. She was honest about me needing to do the work at home or it was not going to be what I wanted.
I have Heidi to thank for being able to compete in powerlifting again and am now going to the Master Worlds Bench Press competition in May 2020. Could not have gotten this far without her. Thanks Heidi

"Oh my goodness. I broke my wrist while working out. Box jumps to be exact. Fell back, right on my wrist. I wasn’t sure how serious it was, until after I drove myself home. Then the pain started! I had never broken anything before. I was a teacher to twenty 2nd graders at the time. And I had just mastered the pull-up after months of practice!!!! I’ll be honest, depression set in a bit because I couldn’t do anything. Just sit and sleep. I missed being active. The silver lining to this was OT!!! Where I actually gained a lifelong friend in Heidi! I was so nervous. Scared. I felt weak in the knees when she touched my scar! Don’t worry, Heidi brought me a juice box and crackers. If I go back to that time, I actually feel peace. I looked forward to going. Heidi was and always will be, soooo easy going, kind, easy to talk to, a great listener and to top that off, knowledgeable in her field. She was always reading and researching new things! I remember how impressed I was at her level of skill. But not just that, but how easy it came to her and how easy she made it seem! ‘Not yet’. These two words changed my life and I quote them, and Heidi, who said them. I was feeling defeated. ‘I can’t do it’”, I whined! Heidi said ‘not yet.’ Words to live by! I remember a woman praying over me right after the injury happened. During that prayer, the woman prayed for healing...I wonder if she prayed I would find a friend in my OT?!"

I was referred to Heidi for occupational therapy after I had broken my ring finger and had lost the ability to fully bend it. I believe no one REALLY enjoys getting therapy but I’m truly glad I had Heidi as my therapist. Seeing her made getting therapy easier and enjoyable. She is kind, funny, set my expectations realistically, knew how far to push my finger, and spoke to my surgeon when I had concerns about the mobility of my finger. I continued to see her following a few more surgeries on my finger. I’m happy to say I have my full flexibility in that finger and I fully believe Heidi is the main reason for that. If you need occupational therapy there is no going wrong with seeing Heidi, she is definitely one of the best in the valley.

I met Heidi Wills in early 2016 after breaking my left wrist when I slipped on some ice on the morning of New Year’s Eve. It was the first bone I had ever broken in all my 52 years (at that time) and to be honest I was very concerned about my arm ever working properly again. I am predominantly left handed and my hands are important to my career, so it really mattered. After having my arm in cast for six weeks, the cast was removed and what I saw left me even more worried about my arm. My surgeon referred me to Heidi for my occupational therapy needs and from the moment I met Heidi I knew I was great hands. She took the time to explain to me how we would be approaching therapy. Heidi took the time to reassure me that all would be fine as long as I was willing to do the work. She shared diagrams to educate me further on the goals we were working towards. She really took the time to help me understand the process. Heidi is an amazing professional and extremely knowledgeable in her field. And although I have no desire for another broken bone...should that occur Heidi will always be my go to for my occupational therapy.
