Dedication to patient comfort, wellness, and trust. That is how I would describe Karen Deville.
Several years ago, my father who was post polio as a child broke his afflicted leg. During his recovery he was lucky enough to have Karen as his physical therapist.
Karen was very dedicated to helping my father become mobile again. Post polio victims often have muscle degradation and weakness as they mature in life. This was no regular recovery from a broken leg.
She reassured my father when he doubted his abilities to recover. My father trusted her and felt he was in good hands. She worked with my father for many months.
Karen followed up with my father on several occasions after the conclusion of therapy to make sure he was doing well.
My brother and I are grateful that Karen was assigned to helping my father.
