Patient Satisfaction is Our Top Priority at Saunders Therapy Centers - Here is What Our Patients Say:


I am extremely pleased with my Saunders experience! The entire staff was extremely thorough and professional in their treatment of me. They strengthened my body and helped improve my flexibility where it was needed most. I recommend Saunders Therapy Centers to anyone battling back from a workplace injury!

-Rick S.

My experience at Saunders went well above what I was expecting from a therapy center. They seem to have a member of their staff for that particular problem you may be experiencing - physically and mentally. I hadn't heard of Work Hardening therapy before coming to Saunders and was worried initially about aggravating an already sensitive part of my body. The two therapists that I worked with quickly eased my worry by showing a sixth sense-like approach to each session. They always seemed to have that delicate balance of knowing when to dial things back a bit or if I wasn't pushing myself hard enough. It made me more comfortable knowing that I could safely push myself and focus on healing instead of further injuring myself. Shout out to Tyler and John Schweiss! Can't say enough good things about them and the Saunders staff as a whole.

I came here with severe pain in my neck due to cervical arthritis. I worked with Greg who used massage and exercises to improve my posture and take more pressure off my neck. I didn't want to take drugs for my problems and now I don't have to because I have taken what he taught me and worked it into my daily routine of walking and exercise. Thank you Greg - you were very patient and an excellent therapist.

- Betty I.

When I first came to Saunders, I was very dizzy and off-balance. I walked like I was drunk, could not walk a straight line, climb stairs, or step off curbs. The exercises Greg gave me helped strengthen my legs and core muscles. Now I have gained confidence so that I am able to do all of these things!

Trisha Frazier has been my physical therapist on three different occasions and every time she has done a terrific job. The first time was when I had major back surgery in 2012. She patiently, carefully, and expertly guided me through months of rehab. She helped make a full recovery. In the fall of 2015, I tore one of my right rotator cuff muscles. Trisha worked with me to help me build strength, regain motion, and most of all, avoid surgery. In the spring of 2016, I reinjured the same shoulder - only this time tearing 3 of the 4 muscles. Once again, Trisha helped get me on the mend and back to my normal life - and avoid surgery. 

I honestly don't know how any physical therapist could do a better job than Trisha. She is fantastic!

Everything went very well. All staff were very nice and did a great job on telling my what to do and why. I feel like I'm ready to go back to work. There or my records show. You were all GREAT!!

- Larry W (Work Hardening program client)

As my 3rd therapist from my accident, Saunders was my final voyage on the road to recovery. Two years and two surgeries later, the light at the end of the tunnel is bright. Saunders provided a professional yet relaxing atmosphere. All the guidance and conversations were very eeducational. It's been a really long time since I've had so much fun in such a diversified atmosphere. Everybody works very hard. Thank you! 

- Shawn B. (Work Hardening program client)

10 years ago, I came to Saunders after right shoulder surgery. After 8 weeks and great support from Larry Quinn and Carlyn Gilmore, I finally returned to work, 1 year after surgery. They were amazing. They listened and with great planning came up with a regiment of movements and exercises to get  me back to work. I never had another problem with my right shoulder again, either instability nor pain. Advance to 19 November 15... while loading an electric wheelchair on a plane, the person at control of the beltloader was not paying attention. The 250# wheelchair big wheels caught on the non-moving portion of the beltloader, knocking me off balance. I had a split second to decide to jump as far as possible or risk falling and having the 250# chair crush my legs. I landed on my right shoulder and rolled. After an attempt at cortisone in the shoulder and therapy elsewhere 2x/week, surgery was done to repair a near 2-inch tear on the labrum and a bicep tendonesis in February. More therapy 2x/week, then an attempt at light duty that failed because of too much repetitive motion. The doctor and I determined Saunders and work hardening was the place for me. Once again, Larry and Carlyn were here to fix me up. This time it only took 5 weeks. I feel strong again!! I feel ready to work, in fact eager for it again. I knew they would have my back here and get me ready the RIGHT WAY, with my health, both mentally and physically, the priority. I would always recommend Saunders and particularly Larry Quinn, Carlyn Gilmore and very special thanks also to Jason Hokkanen who was right there with me everyday checking how I was feeling, icing me down and sharing a good laugh. Thank you, SAUNDERS ROCKS!!!

~Joel P.

I had an excellent therapist (Greg Zimel), he was very caring and professional. Set goals and exercises I could continue to do at home. Pleased with my progress and would return here again if I ever need physical therapy in the future.

  ~Leroy F.

It has been an extremely informative few weeks. I learned many new ways to alleviate pain in my hip. The therapist was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and a joy to be in therapy with. The staff (all of them) have been courteous and a joy to be around. I'll really miss your candy dish.

  ~Duane S.

Saunders Therapy Center in St. Paul location is an awesome place to go to. The staff there are friendly and motivating. They work professionally and effortlessly to ensure that you are better and ready to go back to work. I recently had a ACL/MCL reconstruction and before I went to Saunders, I wasn't receiving the proper treatment from my hospital's physical therapy clinic. At Saunders, the staff show great interest in their clients and the care about your wellness. After my first 2 weeks there I was able to do so much more than before. The programs they have there are unbelievable. They have a lot room, good therapy equipment, and flexible schedule. Overall, Saunders in St. Paul is just an awesome place to go to for physical therapy and I would definitely recommend Saunders in St. Paul to anyone.

I have been to physical therapy a few times before and no one has ever helped me as much as Greg. He truly cares about you and your progress and right from Day One I knew I could trust him, which in rehabbing after a surgery like myself, is very important. The time he takes to make sure I was comfortable and all my questions were answered made me feel very comfortable. I also feel like, plain and simple, I hit the jackpot with therapists. I highly recommend Saunders Therapy and furthermost, Greg, for your therapy/rehab needs. I know they helped me more than I ever thought possible.

    ~Tara W. 

During my Functional Capacity Evaluation, I learned that I can actually do more than I thought I was capable of at work and at home. The staff was very pleasant to work with and they do their job well.

    ~Steven S. 

My experience at Saunders Therapy - Edina has always been excellent. All staff are extremely polite and kind. Marie Holecek is absolutely outstanding in every way. Her osteopathic therapy has been wonderful and has helped me significantly. It's always a great experience at Saunders Therapy in Edina.

    ~Marion M. 

Had a great experience with Trisha. First visit was barely able to function without pain,. After working through the exercises and building my core strength, I am back to running and training for my next race.

    ~Eric M.  

I hurt my shoulder doing cement work and couldn’t do any overhead lifting of anything over 5 lbs. I was unable to shovel, which is a critical part of my job.. After coming to Saunders for Industrial Rehab, I worked with an amazing team of therapists. They helped me day by day to rebuild my shoulder and work my way up to full working potential after a major setback. I can now lift 40 lbs overhead, I have full range of motion, and I’m uber-excited to get back to work!

    ~Chris F. 

I came in to see Tricia wearing a walking boot and experiencing pain with even minor activities like standing. Being a UPS driver, I needed to be able to go up and down steps and walk carrying extra weight of packages, none of which I was able to do. Throughout my treatment, Tricia addressed my needs and concerns, focusing not only on rehabilitating my ankle for my job but also for my personal quality of life. I am able to do all the things I need to at work, pain free and confident in my abilities.

    ~Jodi B.

 I was recommended by my OB/Gyn to get PT for my pelvic floor muscles. I searched online and found great reviews about Saunders Therapy. I am so glad that I came here and nowhere else. My therapist, Amy, is an amazing therapist. I had been suffering from a dull pain in my abdomen for over two years. Using several techniques, she was able to resolve this two year old pain within 6 visits. My whole experience at Saunders was excellent. Thank you Saunders and thank you Amy so much.

Very nice people who push you to do your best. They (Carlyn and Larry) really helped me strengthen my arms and legs after a stroke. They don’t let up – but in a good way.

I am so grateful! There has been enormous improvement. My whole body feels better.

I can’t say enough good things about the therapy I received for my neck and shoulders and previously my back. Marie is wonderful.

Amy was very well informed, thorough in her evaluation and explanation. Professional and personable. I would have her treat me again in the future if needed.

I have a chronic illness and have been to many physical therapists and Marie is one of the very best I’ve encountered. She is straightforward, compassionate, easygoing and employs a sophisticated mix of techniques to deal with my ever changing physical issues. I would highly recommend her to anyone, but particularly those struggling with chronic health issues. Thanks!

I have been to PT probably 4 different times in the past 10 years and PT always left a bad “taste” in my mind. Up until I met Carey. She is awesome. Her demeanor, the exercises and her approach could convert anyone opposed to PT. The entire program is very well done! Carey showed me things to do in everyday living without thinking “I’m exercising”, and I feel the results!

Saunders Therapy has always gone above and beyond in meeting my physical therapy needs. I appreciate their being on time, providing water and magazines and mints in the waiting room. The exercises and stretches are easy to understand and use. Thank you!!

I am very pleased with the care I received at Saunders Therapy Centers. My therapist, Lisa was excellent. She explained everything about my condition. Very professional.
