After ten years specializing in pelvic physical therapy, Dr. Rosie Radford has a lot of happy patients. Read what they have to say about their experience with Northwest Wellness Group.
I feel very fortunate to have found Rosie. With her help and guidance, I have been able to control my overactive bladder and to avoid medication and or botox treatments recommended by a urologist. Rosie gave a very thorough initial interview and exam to help determine the best treatment. She was always very professional, at the same time very pleasant and approachable. The combination of exercise and biofeedback really worked! I am now much more comfortable and confident. I would highly recommend Rosie for treatment involving any pelvic issues.
I had a great experience with my bladder pulling upward & not hanging because of the exercises I learned how to do from Rosie. I really liked the one on one learning of the exercises so I knew the proper way to do them and get the most benefit out of the exercise. Rosie is a wonderful, kind, and caring doctor that I felt very comfortable with and appreciated all of her expertise on the bladder and all the muscles surrounding it. Because of Rosie’s help I did not have to have any surgeries. I’m very thankful for being highly referred to her from Northwest Women’s Consultant Group, Dr. Geittman said, “Rose was the Best.” I think she’s awesome and I would recommend her to anyone having bladder issues.
My experience was nothing but positive. Dr. Radford was very thorough and explained the diagnosis and its symptoms very clearly. She was patient with my concerns and helpful when answering my questions. She listened when I restated my understanding of the therapy goals & expectations. Dr. Radford demonstrated exercises I could do at home to better manage my diagnosis. I appreciated her flexibility in what was covered during our sessions based on my concerns. When the processing of my insurance had a “glitch” she was very understanding and quick to resubmit the needed paperwork.
If you need a specialized physical therapist, I highly recommend Rosie Radford. Rosie is very competent, kind and compassionate about her work. Rosie is truly professional and puts you at ease knowing how difficult and personal these issues can be. Rosie had genuine concern for my treatment and well-being. Most importantly, Rosie’s treatment worked!
Rosie is a Godsend! I can honestly say I got more out of therapy with Rosie than expected. It took a lot of courage on my part to even go to my first appointment. I was embarrassed about my bladder issues. After countless visits to the urologist, test after test, I was taught to use a self-catheter and was told there was nothing that could be done. Boy did Rosie prove them wrong! I am truly glad that I sucked it up and went to that first appointment. I noticed a change almost immediately. With the biofeedback machine Rosie was able to determine the problem wasn’t my bladder it was the fact that I could not control my pelvic floor muscle. With Rosie’s assistance, her amazing biofeedback computer, electrical stim and exercise I was able to use my pelvic floor in the proper manner. Most importantly I learned how to control my pelvic floor muscle. Yes there were some uncomfortable moments throughout treatment but Rosie made me feel at ease. She is patient, competent, gentle, caring and kind.
My life has been changed in more ways than one. It’s been a year since I last used a catheter thanks to Rosie’s skill and dedication to helping me. A big bonus is that this treatment improved my intimate life. Now that I have control of my pelvic floor, I once again have feelings that I thought were lost forever.
Rosie is a fantastic therapist. As an athlete and a mother of two, I have been to many different physical therapy clinics for a myriad of reasons. Rosie is one of the best because she combines two aspects so well: knowledge of the body and care of the client. Rosie taught me more exercises than previous therapists in the same field. Her knowledge and understanding of the woman’s body is superior. Moreover, Rosie is completely approachable, honest, and kind. She very patiently explained anything I needed to know and made me feel very comfortable despite some vulnerability. Plus the ambience of her office and therapy room is very relaxing and soothing. Despite living 45 minutes away from Rosie’s office, I believe every session was worth it and I am so grateful I found her.
I have been utilizing the therapeutic services of Dr. Rosie Radford for “over a half a decade.” My daughter was also blessed to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Radford.
Dr. Radford’s therapy work and education have had life changing effects for both of us and put us on paths that changed our daily lifestyles in positive, life lasting ways.
Dr. Radford is what I consider the “Gold Standard” of physical therapy (pelvic care)
What does that mean? Simply put:
1 – Her magnitude of knowledge is exemplary.
2 – Her professionalism (10+++).
3 – Although she is highly professional, she is first and foremost “REAL”, down to earth and deeply compassionate and understanding of all physical and emotional conditions.
4 – There is no subject matter that she will not broach.
5 – As you engage in her assessment and conversation, your shoulders immediately drop – she puts you at a level of ease that one could only feel with a best friend.
6 – Her therapeutic working environment is clean and serene. She has created the environment of a spa-like experience that emits a sense of simplicity and peacefulness.
7 – Regarding the nature or sensitivity of physical needs, Dr. Radford is gifted in how she addresses ones doubts or fears with the utmost of care regarding issues of a delicate nature.
Her compassion and genuineness always comes shining through.
As years have passed, I have recommended numerous family and friends to Dr. Radford. All of whom have come away with the same feelings of being deeply satisfied with their personal care she provided.
Living in an era with drive-thru like service and care, anyone would quickly realize that Dr. Radford’s care and expertise are anything but assembly line service. Care and thought with a high level of integrity go into her every approach. I can not say enough about her as a medical professional. She is just an amazing human being.
She has touched my life deeply , and I am grateful she was placed in my path to help me, as well as others I have recommended to her.
It is my hope her practice will flourish her whole life through, and she will continue to help and bless countless others, as she has done for me.
I was referred to NW Wellness, Rosie Radford, for symptoms related to pelvic floor weakness by the urogynecology group at Loyola University Medical Center—Women’s Health. Although I’ve been evaluated by several other PTs in the past, Rosie was the first to assess my whole body, (as opposed to isolating the portion of my body that I was referred for). Rosie identified areas of asymmetry and specific areas of weakness. Over 5 appointments she taught me exercises to successfully avoid surgery, for now, which was my goal. Along with her calming “zen” office, Rosie creates a comfortable setting which allowed me to easily discuss intimate medical history and symptoms, which allowed for specific, effective therapies.
