I am writing this letter on behalf of Sandra Labella, physiotherapist. She had been in practice in Long Island for a number of years. As surgeons, I and my colleagues frequently used Ms. Labella's expertise in the care of our most troubling and difficult management problems. I have always found Ms. Labella to be highly professional, extremely competent, caring, communicative, and remarkably successful with her treatments. I can recommend her without reservation. It was a tremendous loss to me and to my patients when she departed the area. It proved to be impossible to replace her.Dr. Marvin L. Corman, M.D., Division of Colon and Rectal Surgery, Stony Brook University School of Medicine, New York
I had been suffering with pelvic pain for a few years and had seen numerous doctors and the only answer from the doctors were antibiotics and other drugs. After being on antibiotics for more than 12 months I was becoming desperate for pain relief so I started searching the internet and found Sandra LaBella. I made an appointment to see her and within the first few treatments, my pain subsided for the first time in years. I was amazed. Sandra also talked about lifestyle and stress and taught me how both of these can contribute to my condition. Sandra was compassionate and always made me feel comfortable while dealing with my condition. I will forever be grateful for Sandra for helping me find pain relief and giving me my life back.Patrick
I referred patients to Sandra LaBella for many years. When comparing her with all of the other physical therapists who treat pelvic floor dysfunction, she was the most accommodating. She had no problems being available by phone for consultation and was very helpful. She would also call patients and pre-screen them to see if she was able to help. From a clinical perspective, she helped many of my patients overcome their medical conditions, after suffering for years. She is an asset to my practice that I truly miss. I would highly recommend her for her clinical expertise and her going above and beyond in her care of patients with her empathy and caring.Dr. Chaim Abittan M.D., North Shore Gastroenterology, New York
Sandra is a rarity among healthcare professionals as she possesses both intelligence and empathy. At the time she started to treat me, I had been struggling for ten years with a then undiagnosed autoimmune condition. A mother of four young children, I was constantly tired, arthritic, and suffered from chronic bowel issues. I had been to a succession of doctors, none of whom could diagnose or treat me. Sandra was unique in that she was truly invested in my well-being. She was the first health care professional who listened to me and gave me hope that ultimately, I could get well. Her approach was outcome-driven, always suggesting new therapy options. She was an amazingly intuitive Physical Therapist. She would just sense things because she is so skilled and empathetic. Sandra is a truly gifted healer.Nancy
As a gynecologist, I see many patients with bladder and vaginal issues. I have been very fortunate to be able to refer these women to Sandra Labella for pelvic floor physical therapy. She has been able to help many of my patients with stress urinary incontinence, poor muscle tone and dyspareunia. Sandra would always spend a great deal of time evaluating each person in an effort to put together an individualized treatment plan which almost always resulted in improvement. I am sad for my loss, but you in Colorado should be happy for your gain! I recommend her very highly- she is a caring, professional person.Dr. Lisa Turri, M.D., Island Obstetrics and Gynecology, Rockville Centre, NY
Sandra LaBella helped me well beyond my expectations. Before I was referred to her I had become very frustrated with my condition and was seriously beginning to lose hope. Upon meeting Sandra, she immediately gave me hope that not only could she help me, but that I could help and heal myself as well. After a few sessions I began to regain confidence that I was in control of my body and not the other way around. I found Ms Labella to be a consummate, thorough, focused professional whose holistic approach strives not just to treat the symptoms, but to discover the very root of the problem itself, which in my case went beyond just the body (i.e. work/family stress). In addition to her professional attributes, Ms. LaBella is very patient and empathetic, not only did she take the time to make sure that I understood my diagnosis and treatment options, she was constantly reassuring and supportive and made me feel that she understood what I was going through and that we were a team together in healing my condition. I highly recommend her.Robert
I have known Sandra LaBella for 18 years; our professional relationship has evolved into a friendship based on caring, trust and intelligence. Her easygoing yet authoritative nature has led me to her both as advisor and patient. She is not just an expert in pelvic health but also orthopedic and general physical therapy. To send her my patients was an honor. New York will miss her.Dr. Nadya Swedan M.D., FAAPMR, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Physiatrist, NYC, NY
I had been experiencing a complicated and painful medical problem. I had consulted with doctors of various disciplines and found no relief. One of the doctors, who knew of Sandra’s pelvic floor physical therapy treatments, referred me to her. I made an appointment to see her and found her to be a knowledgeable and caring person. These treatments gradually began to relieve the intense pain. As she worked on me she would also explain what was happening. That was comforting. I was treated by Sandra and came away with an improved quality of life and have always regarded her as someone who really understands her patients and gives them emotional strength.Nancy
My wife and I both had physical therapy from Sandra. Sandra is a terrific physical therapist and will always stand heads above the rest in many ways. These ways include Sandra’s hands on approach, her knowledge on different types of therapy, her concern for us, her communication with our doctors and orthopedists, her availability for answering pertinent questions, etc. We thank the Doctor who recommended Sandra to us every time we see him. He often laments at the fact that Sandra has moved to Colorado and he lost the one therapist he could count on to do the correct thing by his patients. Last year, my wife and I had an unusual year and we both required a bit of physical therapy. We found that we were continually comparing the other therapists to Sandra and we would say that we wished Sandra was still here. The people in Colorado should really be thankful that they have Sandra and they will understand this once they have been treated by her. THANK YOU Sandra.Skip and Carol
Working with Sandra changed my life because she addressed issues that no one else on my health care team even considered. I especially appreciated her specific ideas and exercises for "taking baby steps" to unwind old patterns and develop healthy routines that have resulted in strength in the proper places and releases where I was holding onto unnecessary muscle contractions. She is definitely one-of-a-kind and a very gifted practitioner. I would highly recommend her.Joyce
