Patient Testimonials


I was at the gym yesterday and was on the treadmill (doing a quick sprint at 3.5 for an above-knee amputee, but I bet I could go faster), and I was thinking it's been almost two years since I got this new leg and how much it has changed my life. The condition of my stump two years ago was making it physically impossible to do my job in construction and mentally my worst fears seemed to be coming true. I literally couldn't walk without extreme pain.

At the time I had known you for a few years, and you had always told me the design of my socket was not right. You told me that it was literally squeezing the life out of my stump, which was causing the skin to breakdown, but being the stubborn man I am I was hesitant to change until the pain became to much to cope with. Surgery seemed to be my only choice and I didn't want that, but how could I give up on a socket design that I knew for 25 years? I had nothing to lose and surely everything to gain.

You finished the new leg just before I went on vacation, so I put it in the camper and told you that maybe I would give it a shot down the Cape. A couple of days later I tried it on and by the end of the day, boy did it feel good. It really didn't take all that long before I new it was the answer. My skin started clearing up almost immediately and the pressure I felt when walking on the old socket was gone. I was amazed, and still am.

Today I'm thankful I finally listened to you, Ingrid, and will always be grateful for you "giving me my life back"!

Excerpts from satisfaction surveys

Since wearing Ingrid Frank Prosthetics orthotics my foot and heel pain has disappeared and I can walk run and play tennis without worry. She has spent the time to adjust and fit the new appliances to ensure they perform well. I would and have recommended her to a number of my friends. Great feet, feel fine, thanks!

Ingrid – you are so suited for your job and so knowledgeable to say the least. Your patience and support are endless and it is evident you’re committed to satisfaction. You’re the best. Thank you.
-- Teresa C., Franklin, MA

Ingrid Frank met a vacation deadline, is very accessible by phone, email and in-person visits. She gets the "whole" physical issues – gait, lifestyle, physical therapy. She is extremely thorough – fit or orthotic, shoes, gait, etc. Ingrid Frank is a committed, sensitive, knowledgeable, competent, smart and brilliant professional. Ingrid Frank is the best – you can’t find this level of professional on your own – a fabulous referral.

I cannot say anything but the best about all the services I have received. When I call to reorder the stockings the service could not be any better. Many of our sisters say the same.

It is obvious Ingrid Frank is quite knowledgeable. She is able to provide information and if she is not sure of the answer, she always refers her patients to helpful and informative websites. She is a concerned practitioner, and is prompt in returning calls.

I am loving my garment – it makes a big difference in how I feel. It is much easier to do everyday tasks and work without being constantly uncomfortable. I highly recommend Ingrid for her professional and caring manner. The garment she provided me with fits beautifully and I now go for hours without even thinking about uncomfortable lymphedema.
