Patient Testimonials

“As a very active senior citizen, I participated in weekly Zumba, bicycling, Pickleball, swimming and keeping up with four active grandchildren under the age of 10. One day, out of the blue, I awakened with excruciating left buttock and leg pain. I contacted my PCP, who referred me to Dr. Cherrick. She assessed my pain and suggested the steroid injection and intense physical therapy which I followed very seriously and thoroughly. She was absolutely lovely and made a painful and difficult time much more tolerable. I had the pleasure of meeting her father as well as her daughter, who was 5 years old at the time and told me that she also planned to go into orthopedic medicine like her grandfather and her mother! I sure hope that she does so that the next generation can experience the comfort and healing that I had! I am fully recovered and now in two Pickleball leagues, biking 20-30 miles with family and friends and once again enjoying life. From a very happy “septuagenarian”!” – Sara K.
