Gene Madonia, MD
Physical Therapy Patient

Ahead of Schedule

When Dr. Eugene "Gene" Madonia recently underwent knee replacement surgery, he knew that physical therapy would be key to a quicker, more successful recovery. A retired neurologist who practiced medicine in Martinsville for 37 years, Dr. Madonia was familiar with the outpatient rehab services available at Sovah Health through his many years treating patients in and out of the hospital.

Sovah Rehabilitation Center “is like having a gym in your own home,” says Madonia. “It really has a home-like atmosphere because of the friendly, down-to-earth staff.”

But what Dr. Madonia values most is the reputation and expertise of the professionals working at the Center. “You’re not working with one therapist. Bridget, Rusty, Lisa, Brittany, Virginia, John, Wendy – the whole team works with you. Each therapist has their own strengths through different techniques and training, so you know you’re getting the best, most individualized and comprehensive rehab experience possible. I would recommend the team at Sovah Rehabilitation Center to any patient in Martinsville and Henry County in need of physical, occupational or speech therapy.”

And in Dr. Madonia’s case, his surgeon is pleased with his results. His surgeon said, “They must be working you pretty hard. You’re way ahead of schedule!”

Don Grayson, MD
Physical Therapy Patient

Why Go Anywhere Else?

Dr. Donald "Don" Grayson, a retired ophthalmologist, leads an active lifestyle. When he’s not starring in the latest TheatreWorks production at the Blackbox Theater, he’s exercising with his wife Jo at the Martinsville YMCA, playing tennis, riding his recumbent bike along the Dick and Willie Trail or travelling the world. After recently undergoing rotator cuff surgery, Dr. Grayson chose Sovah Rehabilitation Center for his physical therapy needs.

This wasn’t the first time Dr. Grayson needed physical therapy, nor the first time he has relied on Sovah Rehabilitation Center for his rehab.

“I have had my fair share of therapy in the past – my knees, elbows, shoulder and other areas. I have always had a positive experience here due to the friendly, professional staff and the outcomes I have experienced. I chose Sovah Rehabilitation Center because I know the people, it’s more comfortable here, and I know I’ll be in good hands. Why go anywhere else?”
