Rebecca Roman: I’m writing to let you know how instrumental your team was in my well being. Starting with reception, Darlene Perreault and Sarah Coltran, always very friendly and helpful with my appointments...they both always gave 100% with big smiles. I started in the spring with Lisa Slowman for therapy to ease my pain...she gave me amazing devices to use which helped greatly. She knew I was a big gardener and even found special articles to help me utilize for less pain. Lisa’s very kind, compassionate, with great knowledge of her task at hand (no pun intended). Whittier is not close to my home in West Boylston, but because of Lisa, Darlene, and Sarah the travel was worth doing. I recommend Whittier highly because of these girls and feel an acknowledgement to them is in order with a very special “Thanks.” —Sincerely, J. Johnson
