Emily joined Ark Valley in November 2019. She is new to the medical profession and comes to us from Southeast Kansas where she worked in information technology. When you phone, you will likely speak with Emily who does most of the scheduling. Her additional duties include shipping and receiving, maintaining inventory, ensuring all of the patients items are ready for their appointments and placing patients in rooms. She finds her work rewarding, knowing that she is helping to make a difference in people’s lives and enjoys getting to know the patients.
Kristi, Randi, and everyone I worked with were amazing! They were all so professional and kind. I highly recommend Ark Valley - skip the rest and go to the best!!
I had a breakdown of my leg braces constructed by another company but was able to get in the next day at Ark Valley for a repair.. I experienced a very professional and friendly office.
Jason is fantastic. Our son Brody has a rare form of dwarfism and he’s tough to fit for Ankle Foot Orthotics, but they take the time to make sure they fit well and are always available for any quick adjustments that need to be made. No one better!
Jason listened to what we wanted for our Grandsons AFO's, and he told us what was needed as well. He's great to work with and very knowledgeable.
Ark Valley is the very BEST!! Each staff member excels in their position and makes Ark Valley the complete package!! Jason is amazing!!
At your first appointment, time will be taken to evaluate your limb and the goals that you wish to achieve with your new prosthesis. Your practitioner will discuss with you pro’s and con’s of several different options to help focus on your specific needs based on the latest technology available. This may include several different components, which can each be tested during the fitting process. Your leg configuration should not be determined solely by your prosthetist, but also with your input as the patient. We seek to achieve 100 percent satisfaction.
