“I was just amazed when I walked inside [the STAR Health Sciences Complex]. I had never seen anything like it. I have been to a lot of physical therapies but I feel like your building is what the public really needs. The physical therapists are interested in every case that comes in – you can tell because of the way they talk to you and the way they treat you. You all have helped me a whole lot and I think the treatment is very good. I had had a pain in my shoulder for a long time and I had been getting shots in my shoulder, but your therapist put his hand on my back and showed me the exercises to do with my arms. Now, I don’t have pain in my shoulder anymore. I just feel great that I went there, and overjoyed that I feel back to myself again.” – Ida Barkley
