SAYING GOODBYE TO OUR SUMMER INTERNS As summer transitions into fall, and the new school year begins, it is time for us to say good bye to our summer interns; Maddie and Alec. We have enjoyed having them both here with us this summer furthering their knowledge by gaining hands on experience working with our patients. We are happy to be a part of their journey as they pursue their goals of entering the physical therapy field and develop the skills they will use in their future career. It has been a pleasure getting to know Maddie and Alec, and we wish them the best of luck in the new school year! They each provided some feedback about their time with us this summer.

Samir has created a unique clinic where patients and employees feel more like they are at home surrounded by family than in a sterile medical clinic. Samir and all the staff at Activa work hard to provide a positive and personal therapy experience that really makes a difference in their patients’ lives.

My favorite part of working at Activa this summer was getting to know every patient on a personal level and seeing them improve each week. I’ve learned to importance of making personal connections and I will take that with me to Cape Town, South Africa where I am studying abroad this spring semester. I am incredibly grateful to everyone on the Activa family for making me look forward to work every day and I hope to see you all again soon.” - Maddie S.

Having physical therapy for myself in the past I didn’t know what to expect from this practice, but I was more than delighted with the environment, the level of expertise within the staff and the friendliness of the patients. If I was ever unsure about going into physical therapy as a future career, my experience at Activa has confirmed that this is the path I want to take forward and pursue. Seeing patients completing their therapy and overcoming their injuries/pains is very rewardable and gives me pleasure knowing I could be apart of that healing process.
