Heart/Cardiac Care Patients

I have always used Adventist HealthCare and I always recommend this firm to my friends in need of home care. Thank you for sending me your fine nurses and physical therapy persons.

Jacob, North Potomac, MD
Cardiac Patient

Joint Replacement/Orthopedics Patients

My Physical Therapist Jill pushed me, yet always took my feelings into consideration. She gave me the confidence to believe I could make it on my own.

Robert, Silver Spring, MD
Orthopedics Patient

You must have sent your best nurse and physical therapist. I can’t think of anything that needs improving. Thanks for the excellent service.

James, Fort Washington, MD
Joint Replacement Patient

Julie, Physical Therapist, treated me with respect and care. She was encouraging as well as pushing me to do better. Kathy, the nurse was also excellent. She seemed to care a lot about me, especially when I reacted poorly to the pain medications. I would highly recommend both.

Margo, Montgomery Village, MD
Joint Replacement Patient

The assigned Physical Therapist, Amy, was outstanding in every respect. She was very professional, compassionate and with outstanding clinical skills. I sincerely appreciated the professional services provided. She helped me tremendously.

Ben, Boyds, MD
Joint Replacement Patient

I only had seven sessions with a physical therapist following my hip replacement surgery. My therapist, Terry, was excellent, extremely kind, friendly, and knowledgeable.

Mary Ellen, Sandy Spring, MD
Joint Replacement Patient

The nurses and physical therapist were always helpful, cheerful, knowledgeable, and on-time.

Laura, Rockville, MD
Joint Replacement Patient

My physical therapist, Brigid, went out of her way to research and share with me information about my condition. She is to be commended for this.

Gloria, Silver Spring, MD
Joint Replacement Patient

The most important aspect of my recovery was the care I received from your staff. Pearl, Stephen, Jane...These three people were so caring and encouraging throughout my convalescence. I actually looked forward to their visits. They were all extremely competent and confident in their respective fields I wanted to let you know what a wonderful team they are. I was extremely confident in their care.

Sally Ann, Laurel, MD
Joint Replacement Patient

Telisha’s involvement in my case had a very positive impact on my recovery. She always arrived with smile and full of encouraging words for me. There were a few times when I was in the middle of a “pity party” when she arrived, and she was always very patient and assured me that she understood and that things would get better. And guess what, they really did.

Betty, Temple Hills, MD
Joint Replacement Patient

Linda's visits to conduct my therapy were the highlight of long days sitting with the operative leg up. She paced my exercises very well, made sure I was doing them correctly, encouraged me, and - perhaps most important - helped me to imagine how much better I would feel if I followed the regimen...I am so impressed that you have a person on your staff of Linda’s caliber. Thank you again.

Rena, Silver Spring, MD
Joint Replacement Patient

I am writing to commend the services of Physical Therapist, Lisa, following my hip replacement surgery. Her progression of exercises, although rigorous, enabled me to move very well much sooner than I expected. Lisa’s pleasant manner encouraged me to work through the pain. She always came at the agreed-upon time or telephoned regarding a delay.

Jacqueline, Potomac, MD
Joint Replacement Patient

I would definitely recommend Adventist Home Health Care to anyone who would require that type of assistance.

Janice, Rockville, MD
Orthopedics Patient

The agency played a vital part in my transition from acute rehab to living at home after a very traumatic fall. They provided not only the physical but also the emotional support so vital to recovery. I am continuing to improve every day and am looking forward to complete recovery.

Susan, Silver Spring, MD
Orthopedics Patient

The nurse was very efficient in asking and answering questions. Lisa, PT was very helpful and knowledgeable on all visits. Diane, OT helped me so much. She knew just where I needed work. Everyone was great!!

My nurse was very supportive and helped me by taking interest, helping me to recover quickly and answered all my questions. She explained everything clearly and kept a close watch on my vitals. The therapists were also very helpful. I was very impressed and pleased with all their services. “Very Inspiring”!
