"The care I've received at Hess has been exceptional! Dr. Eric is extremely knowledgeable and thorough, and he provides amazing one-on-one support to each patient. His individualized approach has significantly reduced my pain. He's also very patient when answering questions and explaining his reasons for recommending certain exercises. I'm very grateful for Dr. Eric's help and for all of the tools he's provided me with to continue improving. Also, Diane at the front desk is absolutely amazing! She is so kind and always goes above and beyond to accommodate scheduling needs, answer insurance questions, and to assist patients however she can. I would highly recommend Hess Physical Therapy."

"I’m currently a patient of Hess p.t. In Allison park. Every visit has been a pleasant one. From the receptionist to the therapist. Including his replacement when he was away. Eric the therapist is an amazing therapist he’s very knowledgeable and informative. I’ve never done p.t. Before so he answers every one of my questions so I understand everything he’s doing. I have and will continue to recommend Hess to everyone I know."

"We started working with Dan Haas when I found out that my baby was breech. He helped my husband and me with spinning babies techniques and successfully got our baby to turn head down in just 5 days - right before our 37 week appointment! He continued to give weekly prenatal massages which were very relaxing as I had a lot of anxiety leading up to birth. He offered to doula our birth - my husband and I weren't sure at first since this was our 2nd child, however, we decided it would be great to have another advocate in the room. We did not regret it - Dan was amazing! He coached my husband on how to best support me and made sure I had everything I needed and was as comfortable as I could be. He communicated my needs to the nurse and staff to take that burden off of us. My husband says that he felt more involved in our 2nd child's birth than our 1st because Dan allowed him to be focused on my individual contractions and coached him how to best support me. My labor progressed very quickly - I had an unmedicated birth with staff running in at the last minute to help deliver the baby! After our daughter was born, I had great one-on-one time with her but was too uncomfortable to hold her during repairs, so her measurements were done during that time. Dan never left my side. It was great having him stay with me and comfort me while I was so uncomfortable and I felt supported while my husband could enjoy those first moments with our daughter during her measurements. My labor and delivery was so fast thanks to all of the prep work, spinning babies exercises to get baby into the right position, and relaxation from prenatal massages. I wouldn't change a thing about my birth - I felt I had an advocate, an extra voice, and so much support. We always say we couldn't have don it without Dan and we are so happy to have him a part of our daughter's birth story!"

"I went to Hess in Allison Park for problems in my right butt/hip area. When I came for my first appointment, I could hardly walk, sit, or even drive because I was in so much pain. I met with Dr. Eric, and I am so glad I did! Each session that I went to him, I loved that he taught me different exercises and listened each time as I would come in to where the pain was, and work on new exercises. I am so excited to report that in a matter of weeks, I am able to walk normally, sit comfortably, and drive without pain. He literally is amazing and really cared about helping me get back to normal. Dr. Eric is super knowledgeable, and I would highly recommend to anyone! Thank you so much for everything you do Dr. Eric, and to Diane at the front desk for both being so wonderful!"

"Both my son and I have been in to see Dr. Eric and we've both seen pretty significant results. My son was having some minor back issues after an ultimate frisbee fall and I have had some ongoing muscular skeletal issues for years. My son's issues resolved after only a couple visits. My pain, being more severe and with a much longer history has not completely resolved but I have seen tremendous improvement. Dr. Eric has worked with me not only on exact area of pain (my jaw), but also on my overall posture which seems to be contributing to the discomfort. I'll also say, I really appreciate the individualized care at Hess. I've been to a handful of other physical therapy practices over the years and sometimes I was bounced around from therapist to therapist or I'd only spend a few minutes with the therapist before being shuttled off to the assistant to do my exercises. That's not the case at Hess where I always feel like my care is the priority during the time of my appointment."

"I had trouble getting an appointment at other places so a friend recommended Hess Physical Therapy and they accommodated me immediately. This was one of the best decisions I made. My physical therapist Dr. Tyler is wonderful! He pushes me while maintaining a great sense of humor. Dr. Tyler is very kind and knowledgeable. I ask him a lot of questions and he always takes his time to explain things to me. Dr. Gage is a great physical therapist that has a super funny sense of humor. He is also very knowledgeable and doesn’t mind helping me when needed. Heidi at the front desk is kind and considerate. She is the lynchpin that keeps the office humming and ties it all together. Everyone in this office is like a family. They have made it a great environment to get better. I know I can say after I finish my current therapy this will be a place I will return to when I need PT in the future."

"Had a fabulous experience here at Hess Physical Therapy. Came into the office for the first time with reservations because of my pain level. Dr. Eric provided an excellent service that I will recommend to anyone and everyone I hear that needs to go through the process of PT for their injuries. You get a one-on-one time slot where he devotes all his focus onto your need’s instead of multitasking and hopping from one patient to another. He is hands on and will teach you in detail about your specific injury so that you understand the anatomy of what’s involved. I learned about my injury in a way that I wasn’t expecting and now that I have graduated from PT I have the tools to continue the process on my own. Dr. Eric has given me my confidence back and has brought me to a level of function that didn’t seem possible given the extent of my injury. Highly recommend"

"I tore my achilles in May of 2021 and did a long stint of physical therapy with a different practice. After that was finished, I got back into my training and picked up a new martial art - only to realize that I had some lingering weakness and issues caused by the injury. Gage and the staff helped me identify the problem, correct it, and then provided me with new movements and training to mix in with my regimen. Their goal wasn't to keep me there as long as possible, it was to get me healthy and better than I was before. I'm now able to train with no pain, and performing complex movements that I wasn't able to do prior to the injury. Thank you Gage, Tyler, Heidi and the rest of the staff at Hess!!"

They are professional, kind, considerate, and actually make PT a fun experience and something that I look forward to. Tyler and Gage are always listening and finding ways to help me improve, and not solely focused on the sets and reps of that day.

"5 stars for Dan Haas! I used Dan Haas during my last pregnancy for prenatal massages. I also had the pleasure of having Dan be my doula when I delivered my baby. I had horrible pregnancy induced carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand and arm. Dan worked on my carpal tunnel pain and greatly reduced the pain through his massage techniques. He also helped ease my back and hip pain. I also hired Dan to be my birth doula. Dan was a great doula as well. I had a complicated pregnancy and unexpectedly delivered my baby at 35 weeks. Dan was able to quickly get to the hospital when I needed him. Dan was there for me and comforted me during the whole delivery. He was very professional and followed all the visitor/doula guidelines at the hospital. I highly recommend Dan to any pregnant mama, whether it’s for prenatal massages or being their doula! Thanks Dan!"

"I've done physical therapy in the past, but my experience with Dr Eric was beyond my expectations. He is very knowledgeable and explains everything so I can easily understand what's going on and implement exercises etc into my daily life to fix the muscle imbalances in my neck, shoulders, and back from about 15-20 years of sitting without good posture and lifting with bad form. If you are experiencing any issues I would highly recommend going to Hess to see Dr Eric for an evaluation as soon as possible."

"I would highly recommend Dr. Eric as a physical therapist to anyone who wants a therapist who is committed to helping a patient achieve their maximum potential regarding pain relief and function. My personal experience started earlier this year when my right shoulder (dominant one) became painful and very limited in terms of range of motion. I was diagnosed with a rotator cuff tear and adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) and was treated with an injection and given a script for PT. The pain was agonizing; not only did Dr. Eric with the help of Diane give me an immediate appointment, but they worked with me over a course of many physical therapy sessions to bring my shoulder back to a much improved functioning and pain free state allowing me to sleep without pain and be able to perform my usual activities with a remarkable improvement in my range of motion. I was given teaching on home exercises and a program to keep my shoulder functioning and pain free for the long term. I am highly satisfied with Dr. Eric's treatment of my shoulder and felt that his techniques and follow up are what made the difference. In addition, Diane was very helpful in giving me appointments which would work with my schedule and has been genuinely caring. I would highly recommend Hess/Dr. Eric for others with a need for physical therapy."

From Heidi at the front organizing everything, to both Dr Gage and Dr Tyler and the service and care that they provide. The way that both doctors treat their patients is remarkable. They are caring, kind, funny, patient and most important, extremely knowledgeable in your treatment plan. This place has a very good vibe and positive energy all around. They all help each other and work as a team. I have Dr Gage and Woah!!!! He is AWESOME!!!!!! The only negative thing that I can say is that if you don’t chose to come here for your physical therapy you are missing out on genuine quality care. They go above and beyond. They make your therapy session enjoyable and fun despite the pain. I hope I get another injury so I can come back Lol"

"Hess PT is like no other physical therapy. Their philosophy is to address all the issues that are contributing to the pain, not just the site of the pain. I was having knee pain for 6 months, and as a result my gait was off, and I had developed pain in my whole leg. I. had been walking 3 miles a day, and when I started I was not able to walk down steps or even a small hill, and I was walking with a limp. Matt was able to understand all the mechanical issues that were going on with my knee and leg, and provided a well planned and precise therapy directed specifically for me. I can't believe it, but I can walk up and down steps with very little discomfort, I'm walking a mile a day, and feel sure as I continue with my strengthening I will continue to improve. I worked closely with Nicole who was wonderful as well! She guided me through all the exercises with consistent support. I appreciate both Matt, Nicole and the whole team. They were all so very professional and nice. I really feel like I got my life back. Thank you Hess PT, and especially Matt!!"

"I would like to give a review for Hess Physical Therapy. After receiving physical therapy for my right elbow, I have gained strength and better mobility, thanks to the expertise of Dr. Jessica H. She created a plan to help strengthen the muscles surrounding my elbow and also my forearm and wrist. I am grateful to have received hands-on guidance, as Dr. Jessica helped to stabilize and redirect my muscles/tendons to the proper position while using hand weights to strengthen my muscles properly. She trained me how to properly use elastic bands for regaining strength as well. I learned how to do the exercises on my own so I can continue these workouts at home. I received massage and stretching therapy from Dan for muscle relief, and I am so grateful for both of them!! My physician at Partners in Family Care recommended that I receive PT from Hess Physical Therapy, and I am very grateful for her recommendation and entrusting Hess PT for my care for recovery. Thank you for giving me my confidence, strength, and mobility back, Dr Jess!! I am now able to do my every day tasks that were once nearly impossible to complete without extreme pain!!

"Hess PT-Allison Park is among the best PT clinics I have seen. You will receive excellent 1:1 care from Eric throughout your entire experience here. He is very knowledgable and examines you as a whole person, not just your diagnosis/impairment, which not many other places do. You will experience hands on techniques as well as exercises to help you regain your strength and mobility. Receiving hands on care is something this clinic takes pride in and is not offered at every clinic. You will not receive cookie cutter care here. Everything prescribed to you both in clinic and at home is personalized to optimize your needs for recovery. The office is a clean and welcoming environment with a very open gym where you are always seen and taken care of. There is no getting shut in a room to do your exercises by yourself with no help or knowledge if you are performing exercises correctly like many other clinics do. At Hess PT-Allison Park you are in great hands for recovery to get back to doing things you love!"

"Nothing but excellence from Dr. Eric and his crew! Each star represents one of the 5 C’s of Physical therapy. The first star is given for culture. From the first moment I stepped in the door my health was the number one concern. I quickly was able to grow a strong relationship with each member of the clinic. The next C stands for Creativity. I have been to many different PT locations and always seem to get the same type of treatment rather than be simple lunges or boring calf raises. However, at Hess PT I was able to get past the boring exercises and focus more on my core and other smaller things that can be causing my pain. The 3rd C stands for cleanliness. Physical therapy can be a little gross at times as you are constantly touching the same weights and using the same tables. That being said that’s not the case at Hess PT. There are cleaning wipes used on every piece of equipment after use. Also, the air in building smells fresh and cool. The 4th C stands for consideration. Dr. Eric is able to adapt to every kind of situation. He is able to help me, as a teen with back pain, then go help and elderly women who has troubles pushing her shopping carts. The last and most important C stands for communication. I have to say when I first met the staff I do not recall them stating their names but that was the only blunder that they showed in the communication field. I have not missed a single appointment as they always send reminders about dates and times. That can be attributed to the wonderful secretary who Is always extremely pleasant. Overall I would rate my experience here a 10/10 and highly recommend you let Hess PT lead you on your journey back to excellence!"

"I've had back pain for ~17 years and have seen multiple physical therapists. Dr. Matt Melczak at Hess PT took a different approach than I was used to and because of that, we were able to make large, significant improvements in just 2 months. He was able to zero-in on the exact source of the pain (something that previous PTs were unsuccessful with) & establish a 6-8 week program to address the pain ranging from my neck, through mid back, to my lower back by focusing on improvements in flexibility, mobility, and strength. I appreciated his approach of explaining the issues he sees, using props as needed, and detailing how his treatments/exercises would work to relieve pain in the short & long-term. He also takes a personal approach to his profession & you can tell he actually enjoys his job; contrary to a lot of medical professionals nowadays that act like programmed robots being forced to treat people against their will. I'd recommend Dr. Melczak to anyone that is new to physical therapy, or has had physical therapy fail them in the past."

"After having reverse should replacement surgery, I contacted Hess Physical Therapy for my movement and strength therapy. Upon my arrival, I am introduced to a Physical Therapist with a big smile and fully of energy, Jessica. Over the course of a month, she put me through my paces, increasing my shoulder movement and range weekly. When it was time for strength training, Jessica not only setup the perfect program for my rehabilitation, but she also catered the training to prepare me to return to the gym. I cannot say enough for Jessica’s approach and concern for my wellbeing. I left Hess PT pain free, with a should functioning better than I could ever imagine."

"When I got pregnant, I didn't think a lot about the effect of prenatal massages and birthing techniques, but the day I experienced my first prenatal massage with Daniel E. Haas (Dan), I was totally convinced that this helps a lot in preparation of giving birth. Dan has taught me to feel comfortable and relaxed. He helped me to deal with pregnancy complaints a lot of times. (I slept so well every night until I gave birth to my little baby boy.) His work is really professional; my husband and I are both convinced that the several prenatal massages and his work as a whole helped me a lot to have a very positive birth experience. His work helps you to loosen tension, prepare your body and mind for the "big day" and feel relaxed after each session. He also supported us with his knowledge of spinning babies and hypnobirthing a lot. TOTALLY WORTH IT EVERY SESSION YOU CAN MAKE IN PRIOR OF GIVING BIRTH!!!!"

I had multiple consults between multiple orthopedic doctors , orthopedic surgeons and physical therapists at all the hospitals in the region . I was unable to get a correct plan from any of the physical therapists regarding the pain as the ortho doctors were suggesting a hip replacement but the ortho surgeons were against a hip replacement due to my relatively younger age and whatever the PT were suggesting was actually not getting rid of the pain. Oct 2021 I had a consult with Dr. Eric that included some deep tissue massage , back alignments and was very satisfied with the PT plan that he came up with .

"Had major surgery on my right shoulder mid-December 2021. After 5 days in the sling it was time for physical therapy. It was recommended that I go to Hess because of a former patients testimony about this place. What a transformation from my first visit to the last. I didn't think that I would ever have the mobility and strength brought back as quickly as I did. Dr. Eric and Kelly were both instrumental in my recovery, I felt a sense of accomplishment on each and every visit. They took a personal interest in my getting back to a more mobile and stronger shoulder. It was a relationship that I didn't receive at other PT offices. I enjoyed Dr. Eric changing the workouts to make it interesting and challenging, it never was stale. Though it wasn't always easy it was was worth every second to know that our focus and goal was to allow me to enjoy my life after surgery and not be in pain or immobile. I'm not completely through with my therapy, there will be exercises to do at home but even here I was given instruction and printouts and equipment to continue with my rehab - who does that!? My thanks to Hess Physical Therapy's Dr. Eric and Kelly for being the best teammates you could have to get you well again."

I waited 3 weeks to post so that I had a ‘true’ review to post. I am consistently pleased with every aspect of this practice. From Heidy at the efficient desk to Dr. Tyler whose care plan is making a difference in my significant pain levels to Dr. Gage who greets me daily as if I were his patient. A smooth running operation that makes you feel like you are spending time with friends. Who just happen to be making your needs their priority. As an administrative therapist ( speech / language) myself, I know the ‘back story’ of what it takes to create efficiency in scheduling, flexibility, and ( the bane of existence) paperwork / documentation. They make it look easy - and it’s not."

"I've been dealing with what I called "sleep injuries" for a long while — I'd wake up in the morning with neck, back, and shoulder pain for no good reason. In January, I had such bad pain and hand numbness that I finally went to a doctor and she referred me to physical therapy. When I first went to see Dr. Eric, I couldn't use a knife and fork or drive without being in pain. Now, a month later, I'm 80%+ better with improved mobility and posture and very little pain and stiffness. My hand isn't numb anymore and the tingling is almost gone. The combination of massage, strength training, and functional mobility exercises have made such a huge improvement and I'm surprised every day by how much of a difference I've seen and felt. Dr. Eric and Kelly are both friendly and welcoming, and despite the experience not always being the most comfortable — those muscle knots are no joke! — I've been grateful for their help. I'd recommend going to them for your physical therapy needs and I wish I'd gone in sooner!"

"I went to Hess Physical Therapy for back pain which was preventing me from doing basic activities like driving, standing, and walking for extended periods of time. I also strive to workout 4 or 5 times a week which wasn't possible due to my back pain. Dr. Eric gave me significant pain relief within the first few weeks of treatment which allowed me to resume all of my normal activities, including my workout routine. I've been to physical therapy over the years for various issues but my experience at Hess was by far the best. Dr. Eric gives you personal attention during your entire therapy session. I've been to other physical therapy clinics where they've had me basically go through the exercises with very little supervision. Dr. Eric was the exact opposite in that he supervised all of my exercises which allowed him to correct any mistakes I was making. He's also a very "hands on" therapist in terms of the manual work he does. He stretched me out and did a number of manipulations to correct my misalignments. He's very knowledgeable and also just a super nice guy. Kelly oversees the front of the clinic and she does a wonderful job scheduling and making you feel welcome. She also helped work me into the schedule several times when I had scheduling conflicts. I would recommend Dr. Eric and Kelly to any of my family or friends that might need physical therapy."

"Dr Eric is simply the best physical therapist, and I can’t recommend him highly enough. I started experiencing sciatica pain on one side and overall muscle pain/weakness 5 months ago, that prevented me from running. Running isn’t just exercise for me. It grounds me and calms my mind, no matter how chaotic life can get. So I was at an extremely low point in my life 7 wks ago when I started PT, both physically and mentally. Dr Eric is patient, kind, and extremely knowledgeable. Based on the initial evaluation, which isn’t rushed, he creates an individual action plan to get you back on your feet. Mine wasn’t targeted only to the symptoms, but also to helping me get back to running. He’s really hands on and gradually empowers you to understand what your body is telling you when you’re in pain and use the tools that you’ve learned to help yourself. I started running again after 3wks of PT with Dr Eric. There were good days and bad at first, but he helped me work through the bad days, strengthen areas where I was weak, and understand signs where my lower back was compensating that I would have previously ignored. I feel stronger than I have in a really long time and am back to running daily. Thankfully I now know how to manage the sciatica symptoms if/when it flares up and don’t have to stop running again when it does."

"I just want to testify to how great Hess Physical Therapy is. Kelly and Dr. Eric are both awesome people, very personable, very outgoing, easy to talk to but most important of all they are excellent at their respective jobs. Kelly handled all my insurance needs quickly and competently, she let me know what was covered and what wasn't and what my costs were going to be. She made the paperwork and questionnaires easy to do and she also patiently managed to help me schedule appointments around my busy schedule which is no easy task, always with a smile and a great attitude. Then there's Dr. Eric! I had arthritis in both knees and he told me right away that if I did what he asked that for sure I would be stronger at the end but that he couldn't guarantee that my pain would be gone. Well my right knee is 95 % back to normal and my Left knee is definitely improving but still gives me pain. Like Dr. Eric says though, my knees didn't get this bad overnight so it may take some time. He amazes me with his knowledge of human anatomy but even more than that is his ability to actually listen to what you say and put it to use. Every day he asks how you are and what changes you have noticed then you can see him think about what you said and maybe right then and maybe 5 minutes later he will modify what you are doing based on what you told him, and guess what? It works!!! I never had much faith in foam rolling or stretches but they actually work. You can tell he is compassionate and really cares about his patients by the time he takes with each person he sees. He answers all and any questions you have and takes the time to make sure you understand what he has said, and the same with anything he sends you ho me to do. As the public face of Hess, Kelly and Dr. Eric are truly great assets to this business and I would recommend them to anyone for their physical therapy needs."

"I have worked with many PTs. Eric is by far the best. He has a doctorate in PT and has attended advanced post-graduate courses He is personable, great at answering questions, and truly cares about his patients.  His evaluations and methods are not the same as that of the typical PT. But they work. He knows the body and provides critical stretching and exercises specific to his patients without overwhelming them with numerous homework techniques that often discourages them from helping themselves. Some people listen to their trainers to help fix their problem. Don't make that mistake. They are not qualified to assess and lessen your pain."

After months of dealing with this, the pain got so bad it took me to the emergency room. Numerous tests were done but nothing showed any serious problems. I asked my doctor if I could try physical therapy. My research online brought me to Hess Physical Therapy and Dr. Eric. His reviews were excellent! He is hands down amazing! Better than any chiropractor I have ever been to. His technique and instruction has helped me immensely. He is extremely smart, personable, not to mention good looking and really cares how well his patients improve. I highly recommend Dr. Eric to anyone with any body ailments. I guarantee he will help you feel better. Thank you Eric for bringing back the spring in my step! "

"I injured my lower spine this past winter and have been experiencing considerable pain off and on over the past few months. X-Rays showed issues with L4, L5 & S1. Dr. Eric Steglmeier reviewed the prognosis from the x-ray information that I provided him along with that from my PCP. After that, Eric asked me to explain in detail exactly how my injury was affecting me. From that information Eric started out with basics to strengthen my core and to better understand the issues I was having. With each session, Eric made adjustments after discussing my fitness and reviewing any changes to my condition. After 20 sessions and following home exercises as prescribed by Dr. Eric I can honestly say that I'm feeling substantially better than I've felt in the past 4 months. Eric illustrates that he is exceptionally knowledgeable and cares for the well- being of his patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Eric to everyone experiencing back or other related injuries that require physical therapy. In addition to being a great doctor, Eric is extremely personable, maintains a relaxed environment for his patients and has some good music playlists to relax you as you workout or get worked on. Thanks for all you've done for me Eric ...... Wayne Gillam"

Dr Eric has accepted the challenge and we are making progress that I wasn’t sure would be attainable. It is remarkable to watch Him as he works. You can see the wheels turning as he narrows in on what’s going to work for you personally. Between Dr Eric and M in the office they make you feel right at home. I never feel like I’m being over looked or forgotten about.

They helped me feel stronger and without pain after a few weeks following a 3-month old injury I finally sought treatment for. While I know that not all results will be the same and we all heal differently based on the situation, but this team IS a gift. They made PT fun and supportive and work within my busy work schedule, which made it a much smoother process than I'd originally anticipated. It’s evident they truly care about their patients. And let’s not forget the Face of the Place, Diane! She always greets you with a smile and a friendly conversation. Hess is a model in my eyes for how patient care should be done! And I even enjoyed interactions with other patients. THANK YOU!"

"I chose Hess PT after being diagnosed with a rare disease (diabetic amyotrophy) which damaged the nerves in my right leg and left it largely paralyzed. Upon entering Hess PT, Dr. Eric Steglmeier researched this rare disease and formulated a treatment plan. After eight weeks of intensive therapy, I WALKED out of Hess PT with enough capability to resume much of my life activities. Dr. Eric also provided a plan for continued exercises to regain FULL recovery. Dr. Eric is a knowledgeable and highly capable clinician. I strongly recommend him for anyone requiring PT."

He knows what exercises to prescribe and is very good at manipulating the knee at the beginning of the sessions. I know I could not have found a better place to do PT.

I went in with some skepticism and apprehension not sure that this would help me. I was totally wrong. After only 2 sessions with Dr. Eric, my shoulder pain had improved significantly. Dr. Eric is very knowledgable, professional and personable. The treatment he devised for me has been so good that my shoulder is almost 100% pain free in only 4 weeks. Thank you so much Dr. Eric.

Not only as a learning environment, but also the general atmosphere. It's a very laid back clinic but still very efficient. Dr. Eric is a fantastic clinician and teacher. I learned a lot in the classroom, but being able to work under Dr. Eric has given me even more tools to use in the clinic and has made me a more critical thinker when it comes to assessment, treatment, and patient management. Kelly Is a great PTA and was always there to help me in the clinic when things got too busy to handle. I have witnessed plenty of patients come into the clinic with pain and Dr. Eric was able to make immediate changes to relieve some of their pain. He is able to give every patient his full attention and best care. I enjoyed going into the clinic every day and wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else for a better experience."

I chose Hess Physical Therapy and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my progress. I could tell after only my first session that I was in good hands. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and they’ve helped me get back on my feet, literally and figuratively. I’m just a few short weeks of working with Dr Eric, Josh, and Kelly, I am back on the soccer field. The biggest difference for me was getting my confidence back.

I stayed in Florida for 4 months trying to find a solution, the best they could do was a technique called Graston and it helped but was not the total answer. I had to return home to Pittsburgh and I googled scar tissue mobilization - Hess Physical Therapy in Crafton and Dan Haas' name came right up. It was very convenient for me so I started with them. What a good decision- Dan used ASTYM- a newer scar tissue technique, and it helped immensely. Dr Gage is a young breath of fresh air, he really knows his stuff and gets right to the root of the problem or problems in my case. It is a friendly, welcoming and healing place...."

As a former patient at other clinics, I can say with confidence that Dr. Eric is distinctive with his skills and approach to treatment. He dedicates one on one time with each patient and goes beyond to ensure that his patients are educated about their condition and plan of treatment. This is a huge contrast to my own experience as a patient at other bigger clinics where patients were left alone to do the exercises and had minimal interaction with the PT. If I had known about Hess when I was a patient, I 100% would have come here. Both Dr. Eric and the front desk staff, Allison, are incredibly friendly and welcoming. Throughout my time observing at Hess PT, I have seen amazing progress and transformations from patients' first days to their last discharge days.

"In December 2010, I experienced a severe compound fracture of my left tibia and had two plates and 23 titanium screws implanted to promote healing. The presence of this hardware resulted in daily pulsing nerve pain emanating from the toes of my left foot, which I was unable to relieve for over a decade. I saw the ad for pain management from Hess Therapy who had an office in my Allison Park neighborhood, made an appointment, attended a preliminary evaluation session in April of 2021and soon thereafter began treatment. Within 2 visits, the foot pain began to ease and after six weeks of treatment I feel that this problem has been 90% alleviated, thanks to Dr. Eric Stiglmeier's excellent therapy program. My balance skills have also improved significantly as well. Dr. Eric's skills as a therapist are remarkable to observe. He is a multi-tasker, easily directing therapy programs for two or sometimes three patients at a time, providing hands-on massage techniques to one patient while correcting exercise techniques on another. He has excellent people skills, motivating each patient in a manner that best encourages each to achieve optimal results from exercise routines prescribed by him. I have been promoting Dr. Eric to the folks in my senior men's fellowship at our weekly meetings, resulting thus far in one new Hess Therapy patient and the possibility of many more if my selling skills are still on par. I highly recommend Hess Therapy and especially Dr. Eric for anyone wishing to manage pain and improve balance skills. Paul Palmer' - Allison Park"

I was sleeping with an ice pack and taking pain killers 24/7. An MRI pretty much pointed to shoulder surgery which I was avoiding like the COVID! I got a flier in the mail from Hess Physical Therapy and thought what the heck -I’ll give it a try. During my initial consultation with Eric he examined me and pretty much called out everything the MRI told us. Six weeks later my shoulder is almost totally pain-free. I will never have completely pain free due to my age (63) and the damage done from my injury but I am 150% better than my first visit! No more ice packs, no more pain killers! Back to mountain biking, fly fishing and yard work with no (or very little) pain!!! Thank you Eric (and Allison) -Tim P Allison Park"

"I had foot surgery to repair an injury in 2019 and went to a different PT practice in Allison Park at that time. The previous therapist ended up getting way too aggressive and ended up breaking one of my toes in the process. This required yet another foot surgery this year to repair the previous PT's damage. I chose Hess PT this time and my only regret was not using them originally back in 2019 as I would have saved myself a second surgery. Dr. Eric pushed me beyond what I would normally push myself but also understands what is too far. Both Dr. Eric and Allison were great to work with. The practice is tucked off of Route 8, so it's not real visible, but I would definitely recommend checking it out."

"I am super grateful to Dr. Jess & the staff at Hess’s! I have suffered with back pain from scoliosis for many years now. I have hardware in my back from surgery that did correct my curve almost 25 years ago, however as I have gotten older daily tasks has become a burden because of the pain. My back doctor suggested physical therapy a few times but I honestly didn’t think I would benefit from it so never went until recently. I’m so glad I did. The knowledge and care from Dr. Jess & Dan has tremendously decreased my back pain on a day-to-day basis. Now it’s just on me to keep up on the stretches, exercises, & occasional massages from Dan 😉 Thank you to Dr. Jess, Dan, and all the staff at Hess Physical Therapy!!"

"I went toHess physical therapy because of my left shoulder. Extremely painful and with limited motion and weak. I didn’t have high hopes cause I’ve been to therapy before for approximately 1&half years. I’ve got distonia and it has been getting worse as time goes on. It was from a Prescription called Regan. Anyway I met with Dr. Eric and made several observations and told me what he could help me with and how. I figured what the heck I’ll try anything at this point My next neurologist appointment wasn’t til May. Looked like another pill. We started slow and easy as to not cause any pain. He moved my arm in various ways checking my range of motion without pain. Then began with various stretching motions and continued to add more stretching movement to the plan he kept adding more and different stretching exercises things start improving rather quickly in the. I’ll make a long story short I couldn’t be more happy with the the improvements have gotten my pain level has decreased by half my range of motion has increased by Jabal my strength has doubled I feel so much better. I feel like there’s actually hope for me and my goal is to take up golf again and I’ll see either air might be a good chance there’s a light there and I’m not near as depressed as I once was as I know that he’s take me on the right journey of very happy to have met his acquaintance and have his professional guidance I don’t know what I’ve done with time I personally know him a great deal of gratitude and thanks and Allison two she’s been a big help. I plan on continuing done the road he’s leaving me in hopes that this summer I’ll be able to pick up a set of golf clubs and they have a swing halfway decent I thought pain."

"I have had 5 major back surgeries between 2011-2019. Furthermore, I have been to countless physical therapists to help me strengthen my back and get to the root of the problem following surgery. Unfortunately, those countless therapist really never helped so I continued to suffer. Since I have been going to Hess Physical Therapy in Allison Park which my journey began in late January, Eric, the physical therapist has been amazing!!! He took the time to get to understand my situation, what I have been through, and assess the problems going on in my lower back since being fused from L3- to my tailbone in 2019. Without question, he is very professional, personable, and definitely knows what he is doing!! Additionally, thanks to Eric, he has me functional again!! I would highly, highly, highly recommend going to see Eric at Hess Physical Therapy in Allison Park!!!!! Thanks Eric for helping me be functional again!! I will definitely be back once I have my knee surgery!!! You Rock!!!!"

I am learning why and how I can exercise and work my muscles correctly to benefit me and keep me moving! Dr Eric is able to share his understanding and knowledge clearly and his personal manner is unmatched!!! I also came to Dr Eric with vertigo , something I lived with for a long time , realizing now vertigo was a huge part of my health issues! Dr Eric assured me and explained to me exactly what this was and how he could change this for me!! Just after 2 visits I now live WITHOUT vertigo ❤️ I would say if you are struggling in pain , don’t wait another day , call Hess Physical Therapy and make an appointment with Dr. Eric , it surely will change the quality of your life❤️❤️"

"I went to the Allison Park office for my first appointment in so much pain and very depressed. I am a very active person who, for the past 6 months has not been able to exercise or do the things that I love. My sciatic pain was so intense and after attending a few sessions at a UPMC facility, I felt no relief. I was skeptical about going to another PT Clinic. A good friend talked me into going to Dr. Eric Stiglmeier at Hess Physical Therapy. She promised me great results if I followed his program. I went to therapy 3 times a week for 6 weeks and had great results. I was very impressed with Dr. Eric and the personal attention that he gives to all of his patients. He is very professional and well educated. He is a true "Miracle Worker" and I can't thank him enough for giving me my life back. Allison, the receptionist was also very helpful and well organized. She took care of all of my insurance needs, I did not have to do a thing. She is always friendly and cheerful, I enjoyed talking with her every week. I highly recommend Hess Physical Therapy.

I received a phone call prior to my first visit from Allison, she’s was so helpful and took care of all the behind-the-scenes details so I can concentrate on my therapy. I was introduced to Dr. Eric and was immediately impressed with the one on one attention that I was given. Dr. Eric’s knowledge of how the human body reacts to surgery and what it takes to get it back to where It needs to be is simply amazing. My progress so far has been outstanding and I will be forever grateful for the care provided by Dr. Eric.

He will keep you laughing the whole time while he gives you an intense and effective PT program. Dr. Jess Papale is so clearly dedicated to her patients. She pays such close attention to detail and works one on one more extensively with her patients than I have seen others PT's do. PTA Dan Haas, is consistent, knowledgeable, and a heck of a hard worker. Know that you are safe with Dan around. He knows what precautions to take and how to make you feel at ease. He has expertise in a wide variety of areas and excels in each of them. Michelle is great to talk to and makes you feel at home. She makes you feel like you and your struggles matter when you walk through their doors. She will always be the first person to greet you with a friendly smiling face when you come for your appointment! There is not a doubt in my mind that you will leave your appointment feeling like you have an effective work plan and had a great time. At this office I made friends that I will miss dearly.

"I have been a patient there since 10/7/20. Eight visits thus far. I have several tears to the tendons in the right shoulder Rotator Cuff. I brought my MRI for Eric to review and he assured me that things could get better with PT under his care. I have a lot of confidence in his expertise with getting me a lot better than I am now. I made progress after just several visits and I can sleep on that shoulder without pain for the first time in about 18 months. Eric has very good interpersonal skills with his patients and really cares about their progress. He is a real asset to Hess PT. I look forward to going to PT and working with him to become much more functional than I have been. I would also like to mention how nice and efficient Allison Ambrose is with scheduling flexibility. She too is a good reflection on Hess PT. I will recommend friends to come and get treatment there as well. Tom Brindle"

Dr. Eric provides me expert care and guidance at each visit. Diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica, a chronic arthritic disease, he works within my pain threshold to restore movement and function in both my shoulders. Need I mention Allison Ambrose, the patient service representative at the front desk? She is very friendly; always with a contagious smile and continues to provide me with a flexible schedule that fits well with my home work and activities. I highly recommend Dr. Eric and his staff, exclusively!"

I had gone to another PT and I didn't get the results that I expected to get. When my PT Krista came to my home after I returned home from my knee replacement she had suggested Hess Physical Therapy in Allison Park and I'm so glad she did. Dr. Eric does a wonderful job explaining what he is doing, he is a hands on PT and keeps me going so that I will achieve the goals we have both agreed upon. I will be having another knee replacement and would not want to go to anyone else for my therapy except Dr. Eric. I highly recommend Dr. Eric to anyone that needs physical therapy, he is a very dedicated individual that cares about his patients."

Erick, the Physical therapist is very knowledgeable and caring. He has an uncanny ability to push you in your exercises without going over your threshold of pain. He takes the time to fully explain each exercise so that you understand its purpose and the correct positions to stay within when executing. He adapts your daily treatment to match your ability and pain level at each session. He masterfully manages the PT for several clients at a time without loosing his focus on any single person. I highly recommend this site for any PT needs you may have."

"I found both Eric and Drew to be very knowledgeable in their field. They were able to answer my questions in terms I could understand, as well as locate the real source of my pain with suggestions for improvement. The many different exercises worked on different parts of my body. I never realized that my poor posture and inactivity were factors causing my pain. Gradually I became more aware of my body parts. The set of papers with recommendations to do at home were very helpful. I'm grateful for their inspiring confidence in myself which motivated me to exert myself more, and achieve my goal of eliminating my pain. I actually look forward to keeping my appointments knowing that I would feel better the next day. Both men used their sense of humor to relax me while in class, and perform better. I would recommend Hess Physical Therapy to others. In fact, I shared much of what I learned with another person where I live. All of this would have been possible if it were not for the open house they offered a month ago in which Eric gave an excellent presentation about overcoming pain and imbalance. I'm glad I came. Drew was so patient and understanding. He gave me many hard exercises which paid off. Thank you Hess for being in the area to relieve pain."

He knows how to safely & effectively care for pregnant clients, he makes the experience of pregnancy so much more enjoyable & pain-free. I love his dedication to providing a comfortable & caring setting. Dan is incredibly skilled & knowledgeable in his trades. He graciously offered to doula my birth, and continually checked in on me throughout my pregnancy, birth & afterwards. I just experienced my first regular massage from Dan since my birth. It was amazing! I will continue to schedule massages with Dan. He is a wealth of knowledge & talent. He will take wonderful care of you. Dan is a diamond in the rough.

My range of motion has improved. I am able to raise my arm to wash my hair and reach shelves with no pain. I would highly recommend Hess Physical Therapy and Dr. Eric.

During my initial consult with Dr Jess, she assessed my surgery records, my range of motion, pain level, my expectations & goals and set my PT plan in motion. PTA Kelly & Dr Van were instrumental in my therapy sessions...always cognizant of my comfort and progress. Encouraging me to the next level.

"My experience with Dr. Eric and staff has been great. Eric's patient and determined treatment of my arthritic shoulders and stiff muscles has resulted in greater range of motion and strength. With personalized instruction, stretching and exercises I am once again able to participate in activities I enjoy. Any new pain and my many questions were always addressed in detail yet so I understood. Eric, M and Katy are fantastic. Thanks Hess PT."

"I received therapy at Hess Physical Therapy on two separate occasions, once for sciatica and another time for elbow/arm pain. The facility is within walking distance to my home so I thought I’d try it out. I was very pleased with my treatment and results. The staff was pleasant and always took time to listen and advise. My wait times were short and getting convenient appointment times was never a problem. I will definitely use Hess Physical Therapy again for any future therapy needs."

"Hess Physical Therapy and the entire staff at their Crafton location are fantastic! From the minute that you enter their building, you are greeted by Dianne, who id s very personable lady. She then "hands you off" to the physical therapy doctor, Dr. Ian or Dr. Meghan. Both doctors are highly qualified and some times work as a team during your appointment. I had most interaction with Dr. Meghan. It's difficult to believe that there is any better physical therapy doctor in the Pittsburgh area. I'm not minimizing Dr. Ian's talents and/or experience. The fact remains that I had the most interaction with Dr. Meghan. When you deal with the staff at Hess Physical Therapy, they immediately adopt you as one of their family. I can't say enough good things about the staff at their Crafton location so, I won't, for now. Let me finish by saying that the entire staff at the Crafton location puts their heart and soul into their work. WELL DONE!!!!"

"Dr Eric is so knowledgeable and patient. His youth suggests he knows the latest methods and research concerning muscles in the body. He never 'talks down' to the patients and describes what he is doing at all times. I would forget the exercises he prescribed and he would explain again and again until I 'got it'. He explains the muscles that are affected and why they need treatment. My back is greatly improved because of his treatment. The bonuses: He is handsome, strong and plays great music in the background!"

"I've been coming here for the past 6 months and I couldn't be happier with all the services they provide. The staff is highly trained, experienced and knowledgeable in an extended range of therapies and just go above and beyond standard service. I highly recommend seeking them out for whatever needs anyone may have. Not to mention how personable and sweet the staff is and my therapist, Matt, has helped to personalize exercises and massages that are directed to fit my own needs. He's the greatest and couldn't be nicer. So yes I would tell anyone to go in and check them out. See what they can do for you.....Lynne K"

"I had been experiencing intermittent sciatica pain for 2 years before my back finally went out 2 weeks before Christmas. Dr. Matt was able to see me that day and diagnose the root of my ongoing back pain. After 1 week of therapy my pain was cut in half. I am 2 months out and have not had any significant pain or issues since working with him. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and scheduling has been a breeze."

"I usually never like writing reviews but I definitely have to express my view!!! Hess therapy is the one place to go for any type of therapeutic condition. I myself had totally torn rotator cuffs to both shoulders and thanks to Dr. Meghan and Dr. Ian I was able to make a full recovery!! Therapy for some people is a horror story but for me I could of never been more pleased and confident with my recovery!! Those guys including Kelly,Darlene,and Diane I have never had such a pleasurable experience coming back from such a painful recovery. Especially Dr. Meghan who totally stuck with me through the 9 months of therapy. I cannot begin to express my gratitude towards her!! So in ending this review whenever therapy is required HESS IS THE PLACE!!! Thanks to you all at Hess Crafton and may God bless!!! Jim M."

"5 Stars for Dr. Eric! As an older adult, I realized I was having balance problems and needed therapy to assist me. After an assessment with Dr. Eric, I began a program designed to help me. Dr. Eric is very patient and extremely capable and competent. He explain the correct way to follow through with what he is working on. I appreciate the fact that he has provided me with some instructions on what I can follow-up on at home. I cannot believe the improvement I am experiencing! Hess Physical Therapy is located in Allison Park and we are so fortunate in having Dr. Eric as our physical therapist. I for one can only say thanks for the help."

"The BEST place to go for therapy is Hess PT. My PCP gave me a diagnosis of piriformis syndrome and sent me to Hess PT. Before I started PT had pain in my lower back radiating to my groin and pelvic area. In a matter of a few weeks working with Dr. Matt I was 70% pain free. Today was my last day (2-21-20) no pain at all, my range of motion had significantly improved and I was sent off with exercises to do at home for strenthening. Not only do they have knowledgeable Doctors but their staff is also helpful and amazing. You leave there feeling like a part of their family. Thanks Dr. Hess for having such an awesome crew!"

"I am so impressed with this physical therapy clinic. Dr. Jessie immediately evaluates you with a hands on exam she then writes a treatment plan. She hit every problem After 8 surgeries I was off balance, had a poor gait, and fell a lot breaking more bones. She targeted these problems with all her knowledge and I'm already getting better. She truly wants her patients better and works with you every step of the way. The rest of the staff are also excellent. They will work around your schedule. I highly recommend this office and know I will get better! I'm even panning to go back to work full time soon. Thank you Dr. Jessie."

"Staff knowledgeable and friendly Appointments are on time. Dr. Ian gave me excellent care along with the rest of the staff. When I originally came here I thought for sure was gonna need rotator cuff surgery. My shoulder is 80% better than the day I walked in the door. I would recommend for anyone to try physical therapy first before having surgery."

"Dr. Eric and Hess Physical Therapy care for the entire body. The support and care I get from everyone at Hess Physical Therapy is second to none! Dr. Eric's and Dr. Matt's physical therapy knowledge is outstanding. Their ability and choice to listen to my feedback is excellent. Their approach to constantly monitor and challenge me has helped us, as a team, to hasten my recovery. The care and direction I get is as complete and 'spot on' as any non-doctor patient can know. This not my first time rehabilitating my body. My ankle rehabilitation is as challenging as my surgeon said it would be. Thanks to Dr. Eric I expect a compete recovery. I would not choose any other physical therapy provider."

"This was such a great experience. They work with you 1 on 1 and follow threw with every task they give you. Dan is such a great guy. He took the time to explain everything he was doing. Had great conversation with him also. Jess is amazing. She works you hard but she challenges you to put the time in. But she also questions you to make sure you feel no pain. This whole entire experience has gone further then my expectations. The atmosphere is relaxing and fun But don’t miss understand you will do the work. They just make you feel relaxed and stress free. I would recommend HESS to everyone I know. Thank you all for the knowledge and the fun. I actually will miss you guys. Thanks again."

"I have had persistent pain in my neck for 18 years. It started out on a scale of 1-10 at about a 1-2 but over the last year or two it went to a 10+ with pain shooting up the back of my skull as if I was stuck with an ice pick and it affecting my daily life.. I came to the Crafton office and was treated my Dr. Ian for over two months. Dr. Ian was the most caring, personable person I could have asked had. He was very concerned with my progression, and was not going to be satisfied with lowering my pain level he wanted to get me to be pain free. I can report today three months after I stopped treatment that I am still currently pain free!! I have been to Hess Physical Therapy Crafton for other treatment, so has my husband and mother and we will continue to use Hess should the need arise and have recommended it to others and will continue to do so. THANK YOU Dr. Ian and your staff, especially Kelly who also worked with me. Chris Jackson"

"5 stars all around! My experience with Dr. Eric was phenomenal. I went in with a knee injury, which turned out to be worse than the original diagnosis and by the end of my PT sessions I could run, jump, ski, and play hockey. He was able to listen to my realistic needs - remaining highly active, in addition to, being able to walk up and down stairs and run and crawl around with a 3 yr. old (basic life movements). His monitoring of my progress was specific, caring, and flexible to my needs and healing process. I liked that he showed me a variety of exercises that would not only benefit my knee injury but also other muscles and ligaments imperative to the full healing process of my injury. With that I felt very educated by his extensive knowledge and practical application to daily movements and activity. Dr. Eric made it motivating and enjoyable to come to P.T. sessions and it was a lively environment every time. His willingness to be available for future concerns has also been helpful in keeping up with the maintenance of my injury. I highly recommend Dr. Eric to any patient. Thank you for your help.
