    I have been a patient at FHC for a number of years and have been treated by most of the doctors there, although I regularly see Dr. Hancock. ��The medical/chiropractic treatment that I have received at FHC is superb! ��With a few treatments, they improved all of the issues I had with my back. ��I had been struggling with back pain for over 20 years which made it excruciatingly difficult to work long hours at my job (attorney). ��The FHC team lead by Dr. Hancock set me on a path to long term recovery. ��Dr. Hancock has also been treating me while I've been pregnant. ��He has been employing specific techniques that are very gentle (given the pregnancy) but nonetheless effective. ��I also sent my father (a doctor and medical school professor) to Dr. Hancock . ��He was very impressed with Dr. Hancock's knowledge and treatment, which confirmed my experience - that he's extremely good. ��I recommend Dr. Hancock and the entire FHC team without reservation. ��

    They are great. The therapeutic massage it truly what it sounds like and it is great for people with and without spinal and shoulder injuries, so it is not just Swedish massage or a feel good massage, it is actually rehabilitative. They are very prompt. They have text messaging and scheduling and that is very good for my busy schedule, to be able to schedule and I schedule effectively.

    I left with only one answer: this doctor isn't for me.
    Dr. Wellbourne never so much as glanced at my 3-page intake form in the course of my appointment, and he had clearly made up his mind prior to examining my knees.  If, like me, you are severely overweight, you'll know what I mean when I say Dr. Wellbourne is "one of those" doctors: the kind whose disdain for the obese is palpable, and whose manner quickly becomes dismissive and unnecessarily discouraging.  The sort who seems to think excess weight is both monstrous and intractable.  Unfortunately this belief overwhelms his ability to be truly helpful.  I can't speak to his surgical skills, of course, but if you want a compassionate consultation, it's best to look elsewhere.

    My sister recommended Optimal Physical Therapy And Rehabilitation, LLC,1738 Elton Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20903. I had almost decided to go to another practice, one that I had been to before and knew was excellent. But I visited Optimal as a courtsey to my sister - and was glad I did. I chose Optimal for my therapy/rehab.
    Physical therapists and rehab specialists Paula Kim and Hadassa Roberts own and run Optimal. I worked with Paula for over two months to rehab my left leg and then my right leg (which suffered less damage in the accident). My left leg is now stronger than my right leg!!
    First - the physical office is wonderful. It is large and bright, with a lot of room to workout. It also has a bank of large windows that you can look out while exercising - good when doing repetitions. It also has multiple stations - so several people can workout at the same time.
    Second - they have a full range of equipment for rehab of any kind. I had a least 9/10 different workouts to do - one of which I had to stop as it was causing a problem with another, separate, issue I had. But Paula gave me a different workout for those muscles - which worked just as well.
    Last, but most important, working with Paula was wonderful. She listened to my concerns, changed workouts when needed, and encouraged me to do my best. She is kind, understanding and works hard to make sure everything is done correctly to help the rehab/therapy progression. She is also funny and engaging - and cares very much for her patients.
    I plan to go back to Optimal for more rehab later this year (after knee surgery). I would recommend this facility to anyone needing rehab/therapy. Go and talk to Paula and Hadassa - you'll be glad you did.

    I usually do a 60 minute full body massage. I have had both male and female performing the treatment, it depends on your personal preference. Some times I feel the males can apply too much pressure at times, but let them know, no one wants to leave sore or in pain. I usually do not request a particular massuse (sp) as it's kinda fun to get a different experience each time. That being said, if you like one, book them in advance or get on a regular routine. I would recommend, for the price.

    When I first went to Roselle I was given a comprehensive medical and lab workup. Dr. Lamp listened, was very attentive, addressed my issues and developed a short and long term plan for wellness. I followed up with 2-8 appointments a month for 6 months and, then along with the diet suggestions he made, helped improve my overall fatigue and back pain.

    We liked it very much.  It is very welcoming and encouraging and the staff is good.  We have been delighted with all the things he has learnt from there.  The day care is not the same as the charter Montessori program that they just started, actually the public school system.  We can apply for the day care like any other day care; we need to enter a lottery in order to enter the public charter Montessori which goes through third grade.

    I had recurring back pain. Dr. Ganz worked with me, and with a physical therapist that I found separately, to help overcome a condition that was a bit baffling to all involved. Her persistence, expertise, flexibility, and willingness to work with others assisted in the resolution of my condition.

    During my office visits, the midwives always took the time to listen to my questions and concerns and provide me with clear and useful information.
    I had one incident of bleeding at approximately 7 1/2 months. The midwife on duty at the time told me to come to the hospital where I was admitted for observation. She consulted with an OB when she couldn't determine the cause, which demonstrated to me a willingness to bring in others when necessary.
    As my due date approached, the midwives told me that because of my situation they did not want me to go past that date. Instead of just scheduling me for a medical induction, they offered me several more natural ways of attempting to induce me first. I tried several of them, and apparently they worked. I went into labor less than 12 hours after having acupuncture.
    I have no idea the length of shifts the midwives work when they're in Land D at Shady Grove, but the midwife who first spoke with my husband after my water broke was still on duty 19 hours later when my son was born. I know she wasn't with me every minute but she always seemed to be there or just around the corner.
    At one point well into my labor our doula noticed that my baby's heart rate was plummeting with each contraction and, even though she wasn't in the room at the time, the midwife seemed to me to arrive instantly when she was called. (This was an unusually busy weekend for Land D.)
    When the midwife approached me about having a caesarean because the baby wasn't progressing and was now potentially in distress, I took her advice fairly quickly even though I really felt that a vaginal birth would be better for him. I know that had I been dealing with someone I felt might just be trying to move me along I would have been much more reluctant. I don't know whether making this decision sooner rather than later made any significant difference in the outcome, but I do know that he wasn't ever going to be delivered vaginally. The umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck and kept him from moving down the birth canal.
    I have a beautiful, healthy baby boy and I believe that MCA did a wonderful job throughout the process.

    I switched to Midwifery Care Associates part-way through my first pregnancy because I really wanted a more personalized and holistic approach to my prenatal care and delivery. Within a few weeks of becoming a patient, I developed a complication in my pregnancy which I was worried about getting since my mother had had the same problem when she was pregnant. I immediately contacted the midwives when I started having symptoms but their response to me was exceedingly nonchalant and dismissive. I had to insist that bloodwork be ordered to check for the condition. Sure enough, my lab work showed early signs of the problem (one which can have serious impact on my unborn baby, including stillbirth). At this point, the care I received continued to be inadequate. When I went to the ER because of decreased fetal movement a couple weeks later, they ordered standard ultrasound monitoring which was reassuring. Yet, they once again tried to discharge me home without rechecking my labs. I insisted (a second time!) that labs be checked and sure enough the results came back confirming that the condition was full blown and I would need to be followed by a maternal-fetal specialist and would have to be induced at 37 weeks, if not sooner. (The MFSpecialist was excellent, thank goodness) I ended up going in to Shady Grove for induction at 37 weeks and the horrible experience only turned into a full blown mess. I went in on a Monday and did not deliver until Wednesday night--25 hours after my water had broken--and had watched 3 separate midwives change shifts. However in that whole time, I think the midwives spent in total less than 1 hour in my room. Supposedly it was one of the busiest nights all year they'd had. This was no comfort to me or my terrified husband, who were literally left alone for over 30 minutes in the room after spiking a fever and in the midst of pushing for the 3rd HOUR (after nearly 48 hours of induction, no less). Although I will have to say the nursing care over those many hours ranged from very good to unsafe, I remain most disappointed and frustrated with the care of the midwives during those 3 extremely difficult and frightening days. A few weeks after delivery, I expressed concern to the midwives during an emergency visit to them that I was not healing properly. I was told that everything looked "fine" and that I should just "keep doing Kegels." This apparently was a blatant lie according to the Gyn specialist I followed up with a month later. There is no question that the poorly managed induction and labor I experienced contributed to my long term pelvic damage. Even after months of physical therapy, I will most likely need surgery to be able to function "normally." Soon after my baby's birth, I found out that one of the midwives who I believe was essentially negligent in my care, had "left the practice." Apparently, there had been several complaints reported. Wish I had known that earlier... Given that I thankfully have my healthy beautiful baby here with me now, I'd like to put this memory behind me; I just hope no one else has to experience the same or worse.
