"I have been treated by Mary Kaye Rueth after having a bilateral  mastectomy. She helped with the restrictions caused by this surgery. I found her not only proficient in her treatment, but patient and understanding. As a cancer survivor, the recuperation period can be very stressful. Her dedication and sincere concern helped me through this difficult period. I highly recommend her to other cancer patients needing physical therapy." - Jo


"I was very fortunate and grateful to find Mary Kaye Rueth during my searching for a physical therapist. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to dealing with issues that affect cancer patients. After my breast reconstruction, I was in pain and had limited mobility, flexibility and strength in my shoulder and chest and was searching for a help. From our very first visit, she immediately understood my situation and started me on a path to wellness for my whole body. She armed me with not only a series of exercises but she began the process of repairing my lymphatic system and improving scar tissue. During our visits, she explained what was happening to my body, what I was experiencing and what to expect as we moved forward. She moved me through the healing process and addressed my concerns while encouraging me along the journey. My recent mastectomy was the second time I have dealt with cancer. During my first experience none of my doctors recommended seeing a physical therapist let alone someone like Mary Kaye who is experienced in breast surgery. So my recovery was long and very difficult. I applaud Mary Kaye and her pioneer attitude and determination to give cancer patients more opportunities for a complete healing process. The healing process is more than just getting through the surgery, pain, radiation and chemo it is about getting back your life and where you were while improving your future outlook. Thank You Mary Kaye for all your advice, support and most importantly your commitment to my health. It was a road made easier because you were there for me."  - Mary

The client was immobilized in a wheelchair for over a year, and is now able to walk on her own. Mary Kaye has a wealth of knowledge, patience, positive energy and people skills. It is an honor and privilege to know such a talented and compassionate therapist, and I highly recommend her professional skills as a friend and colleague.
