Client Testimonials

Oncology and Orthopedic Physical Therapy - Mary Kaye Rueth, DPT

 

"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

 


 

"Great results, patients more than positive about MKR's impact, even in very difficult cases. I think you are a great therapist and am grateful for the help you have given my patients." - Dr. D. M., physician

 


 

"Mary Kaye was truly a blessing to me when I had both knees replaced two years ago. She worked me hard and gave me incredible encouragement at the same time. I was told by other Therapists that at six weeks I was doing what most patients do at six months. I am forever grateful! I have continued seeing her for various issues...her diagnosis is always spot on! Along with her incredible knowledge she is a delight to be around with a lovely sense of humor. I always recommend her with the highest accolades---my Dr Rueth!"
 - Rosemary


 

"Mary Kaye Rueth is not just a physical therapist, but one with a mission. She has recognized and assessed the need for physical rehabilitation services for cancer patients, survivors and support services for them and their care givers. When a family member of mine was diagnosed with brain cancer, Dr. Rueth’s concern and compassion caused her to reach out and serve in her capacity with full knowledge that the financial means at the time was not available. To her that was not the issue, there was a person in need and she could meet it. As for myself, a licensed clinical massage therapist, Dr. Rueth, has helped me recover from two bilateral ankle fusions, gaining full range of motion and a normal walking pattern. Over the past seven years we have referred numerous patients to each other in full trust and confidence knowing that their best interest was at hand and the feedback that I hear is “ I just love her and she really knows her stuff.” It is great to work with someone who mutually respects your profession and who shares a common goal, to serve and meet the needs of others." - Alma M. Lopez Pagan, LCMT


 

"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

 


 

"I'll have you walking in two months" said Mary Kaye, and true to her word, she did! Mary Kaye Rueth is a doctor of physical therapy with special focus on oncology and orthopaedic physical therapy. Her dedication, knowledge, expertise and hands-on therapy were of extreme importance to me since I had recently completed six courses of chemotherapy for breast cancer and surgery for removal of the left breast and several lymph nodes. At the time I began physical therapy with Mary Kaye, I was having radiation treatments. Perhaps because of Mary Kaye's program, I did not experience the fatigue usually associated with radiation. Her exercise suggestions for me could be practiced at home with ease or in a pool in order to progress. The facility is conducive to helping each individual. And the staff is cooperative, compassionate and efficient. Having a therapist who is encouraging, willing to answer questions and with a lively personality and sense of humor -- all of which Mary Kaye possesses -- contributes enormously to her clients."  - Luise

 


 

"Mary Kaye works with many of the same women who come to our yoga program. Many of them suffer with joint and muscle pain from the chemotherapy. Others have weakened skeletal structure from radiology. Mary Kaye's physical therapeutic works helps to lessen the muscle and joint pain. Those with compromised skeletal structure become stronger and increase their energy levels. She is compassionate and very caring to all that she works with. Her program provides a supportive and inner wellness for those in recovery." -  Lira Bennett and Gretchen Ross, Pink Ribbon Restorative Yoga

 


 

"Dr. Mary Kaye's ability to connect with her patients and identify exactly what they need is second-to-none. I do not hesitate to recommend her to all of my Oncology patients, knowing they have the best expertise available."  - Susan Watts, Clinical Oncology Esthetician  Simply Faces LLC

 


 

"Mary Kaye, you are the best physical therapist I have encountered in my 74 years on earth. Truly, I am in wonderful physical strength due to your care, even though my CA-125 counts are rising. I will either be undergoing a clinical (PRAY I DO) or starting chemo again sometime next month. You are the best." Sincerely, Pat

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.
