“As today marks 13 days since surgery, I wanted to take this time to thank Visiting Nurse of HopeHealth for the exceptional in-home treatment I’ve received. Every physical therapist that I had was awesome. They continued to push me to new levels, which will only make my recovery quicker and easier as I continue to outpatient physical therapy soon.”
