Patient Testimonials

  • Very happy. Annette has been excellent in diagnosing my post surgical knee problems & prescribing exercises to help me strengthen my knee. Thx!

  • You guys are the BEST!!!  I recommend to everyone I know even if they don’t need therapy!!

  • Heather was amazing! She is why I am back at my pre-injury comfort level. I had tried several places and therapist with little improvement. She listened to me and not only treated the discomfort but found the cause and treated that. Highly recommend AT and Heather!

  • I’m so very grateful for the referral to Laurie Holte. Due to a congenital anomaly that was just diagnosed last year, I experienced years of distressing symptoms that affected many systems (musculoskeletal, lymphatic, nervous, digestive, etc). The anomaly was repaired at Mayo last fall but prior to that, I needed help managing all the associated problems. Dr. Schall referred me to Laurie Holte, who has been my angel through all of this. She was able to do techniques to manage the bursitis, arthritis, edema, fasciitis, etc. It is amazing how much the lymphedema mobilization and fascial release helped. She also used neuromuscular strategies to relax specific muscles and strengthen others to promote balance, pain reduction, & function. Her education strategies have also been extremely helpful; I can now activate specific muscles to pull my SI joint back in place independently within 5 minutes of the onset of symptoms. I’m truly amazed at the vast knowledge she has about all of the body systems. While she has mastered the “science” of PT, she has also mastered the “art”, always using therapeutic listening skills and calming, supportive communication. I would highly recommend her to anyone! In addition, I also saw Gary Schindler a few times and he also was exceptionally skilled and knowledgeable in all areas. When I was searching for the best PTs in the area, I requested names from OTs, PTs, faculty members, and doctors; Laurie Holte and Gary Schindlers names came up the most frequently. I’m so grateful for their services that helped me get through the most difficult time of my life. The primary problems are now resolved but I will continue to go to Achieve for periodic maintenance and support for arthritic changes. Thank-you Laurie and Gary!!

  • To me the most important thing is the people!! The air when you walk in is always friendly and accommodating. I absolutely love the staff. My physical Therapist, Heather has done more for me than anyone anywhere. Jeff is always willing to set you up on a workout plan and Leah is always there to kick your butt for not coming in to work out. There is a lot of personal caring. Staff really cares about YOU.


  • After receiving physical therapy services from another provider, I sought relief at Achieve Therapy. From the minute I walked in the door, Achieve Therapy’s staff was friendly and knowledgeable. After a couple weeks therapy, I felt better than I had in over a year. I am so grateful for the comprehensive care I received at Achieve Therapy. I will not hesitate to return to their center in the future! The staff and services provided at Achieve Therapy are second to none!!


  • I have a life again! It was almost a year after my accident and I still had pain in my neck, shoulder, hip and other areas that had been injured. Medical care was helping me, but it was when I began PT that the hurt began leaving. First PT was twice a week-then once a week. Pilates was added-it was humbling what I could not do. Today I am in my second week of Pilates with an excellent instructor who keeps in mind the injuries other students and I have had and modify the exercises for each of us. Pilates and PT with Annette bring me to the next level of health. I am learning stretches and exercises that I will be able to use the rest of my life for fast relief of pains not accident related. I have my life again! And it sure feels good!
