“A high school parent returned some crutches to me that their son had to use after he injured his hip. He really was appreciative of [our ATC] CamilleForte and the way she not only took care of his son, but also the way she handled the situation and relayed information to him. He also expressed his thankfulness to the fact that we have a sports medicine team in place here and how well it worked. I would also like to brag on Camille and the job she is doing and show my appreciation to her, Lee, Encore and the orthopedic group/Doctors for what we have in place. I can still remember when us coaches did all the sports medicine routines-
Let’s just say we are in much better hands now!”
