Josh Cavaness ~ MD

"Highly recommend Dr. Scudder!  I had constant back and knee pain for several months - I went to a doctor a few months ago and even had a small surgery but was still left in constant pain... After a few online sessions with Dr. Scudder I was able to learn  several exercises and routines that I can do to help ease and resolve the pain I was feeling.  She was able to diagnose the cause of my pain quickly and efficiently and followed up frequently to monitor my progress.  The app was very easy to download and the online sessions were easy to navigate to as well--it was great to be able to schedule a session fomr the convenience of my home too (what a time saver!) Now I am able to run more frequently and can do more of the physical activities that I enjoy.  Thank you again Dr. Scudder!

Betsy is a miracle worker!  She worked with me to help with neck pain I had started experiencing a year prior when I started working a desk job.  Within a week the pain was practically non-existent and by the second week it was completely gone.  She not only helped me with my current situation, she also took the time to educate me and equip me so that I could prevent it moving forward and would know what to do if it came back.  All of that and she did it from the comfort of my home!  With my busy schedule it was such a blessing to just have to turn on my computer!  You will not regret working with Betsy!  She is knowledgeable, caring, reliable, convenient, and will have you feeling better in no time!

Betsy is the absolute best!  She is caring, professional, thorough and extremely knowledgeable.  She finds the root of the problem and knows how to truly fix it and then teaches you how to help yourself.  I had months of pain and then after just one session with Betsy I was feeling major relief!  The online portal and video system is so easy to use and couldn't be any more convenient.  I highly recommend Scudder Physical Therapy with the telehealth system for treatment

HIghly recommend Betsy!  I always thought a torn meniscus had to end with surgery, but Betsy showed me otherwise!  After a few online sessions I am back to walking, hiking, biking and even skiing without pain.  Getting an appointment was as easy as downloading an app and what a time saver to be able to have your appointment right from your own home!

Ellen Clouse ~ VA

Betsy was great!  She was able to pinpoint the cause of my shoulder pain through a very thorough evaluation and then gave specific instructions on how to alleviate the pain through physical movement.  All this being done via the convenient telehealth video conference.  I have been greatly helped by Dr. Scudder for various aches and pains over the years.  She has always impressed me by her knowledge and expertise with the result being my restoration to complete physical health each time.

I was referred to Dr. Scudder by a friend for several issues that were causing pain and limiting my physical activity. Some of the issues had been ongoing for a year or more and I had seen multiple doctors, yet the problems persisted. I decided to take a chance on Dr. Scudder and am glad I did. Dr. Scudder's model is a little unconventional because she operates mostly over the Internet. Don't be intimidated by the technology or worried about the effectiveness of seeing a PT online. As long as you have an electronic device with a camera, it's as easy as clicking a link and typing in your name. And I can say from personal experience that the PT is effective because I have seen definite improvement. Two of my issues were resolved almost immediately (it was like Dr. Scudder waved a magic wand!). The other two will require a little more work, but I am confident they will resolve with a little more time and consistency on my part in doing the prescribed exercises. Dr. Scudder offers a free 15 minute discovery session, so if you are in pain, you really have nothing to lose except a few minutes of your time. You will see in talking with her that she is extremely competent and able to explain everything in terms you can understand. And she's definitely committed to continuing education. Dr. Scudder's philosophy is that movement is medicine and most issues can be fixed with the right exercises done in the right way. She was very thorough in her diagnostic approach to assess my problems. She explained everything in detail and was patient with all my questions and concerns. The online sessions were easy to schedule and worked extremely well (though it took a little practice on my part to get the camera positioned in just the right way). There's a lot more flexibility when you don't have to drive to an appointment. The exercises she gave me were easy to do and didn't require any equipment. She recommended some educational materials and a few inexpensive devices, but none of them were required. Most insurance companies are behind the curve with paying for online PT, but my insurance actually did cover part of the cost. Don't expect yours to do the same (at least not yet), but it's worth checking into. I highly recommend Dr. Scudder and her approach to resolving pain. Give it a shot and trust the process. It works!
