2 Testimonials
My visits to physical therapy
“ I was diagnosis with plantar fasciitis with a heel spur. When I first arrived to physical therapy I was in alot of pain. Tom was the therapist that evaluated me. I also worked with Joe. They both were very polite and friendly. They taught me alot of exercises to do. I have improved alot because of their help. I would definitely go to this site in the future. I would recommend these two wonderful therapists to anyone that needs to have physical therapy! ”

Dr. Godbout is the best, no one else will ever touch me!!
“ I have been a patient of Dr. Godbout's since 2000 due to a workers comp injury. He stood up for me against the insurance nurse case manager that came along to my appointments and tried to tell him what to do. He basically told her that he was the doctor and he knew what was best for me. I rehabed very fast after surgery and was released from his care. Well, then I had other "accidents" over the years-too many to list and I stayed with Dr. Godbout as my orthopedic surgeon and CHS in general. When I hear people complain about their orthopedic surgeon I say go see Dr. Godbout. I will never let another orthopedic touch me so please do not retire anytime soon as I still need to have my acl reconstruction and meniscus repair. Besides Dr. Godbout I utilize Pulse, Dr. Duffy, Dr. Stoll who replaced Dr. Hinke, Dr. Quintana, Dr. Ming who was my heart doctor before he came to CHS, the pt department over the last 15 years, xray, mri and Dr. Chiappetta. Thank you for hiring TOP TALENTED DOCTORS AND STAFF!!!! ”
