Dr Mehaffy gets a 5 out of 5 because of (1) his expertise, (2) his integrity, (3) the results I've gotten, (4) value for money, (5) how respectfully he treats patients, and (6) the overall positive attitude and atmosphere of the entire office. RESULTS Dr Mehaffy helped me overcome a bad case of repetitive strain injury (RSI) from too much computer work. My arms and wrists hurt so much I almost couldn't use them, and I'd been dealing with it for years. He taught me simple stretches and did a lot of hands-on massage work to speed my muscles' recovery. Over time, I recovered fully and I have not suffered from repetitive strain injury since then! TREATS PATIENTS WELL Dr Mehaffy spent a good bit of time to explain to me what was going on to cause my pain, answered my questions, and was really patient and thorough. I truly felt valued and cared for as a person with a problem needing help, and he gave his time and attention to show it. EXPERTISE He is really the best I know of at what he does. I've referred other friends with RSI and they are really happy with the results as well. He is extremely knowledgeable, and for that reason I've referred others to him for non-RSI issues. For example my mom was having back pain and after just a visit or two she was fine. I went to him again with what I thought was a pulled hamstring. He got in there and showed me how it was my glute muscles (something my other doctors didn't find), and as I've followed his advice I'm doing better already -- for the first time in months. INTEGRITY and VALUE FOR MY MONEY He knows his limits, so he's not going to try to treat something that should be seen by another specialist, so I really value his integrity. He teaches me stretches I can do at home so I can really contribute to (and maintain) my own recovery -- He's not about making people dependent on him. When I did go see him, he didn't waste time with stuff I could do myself -- he got in there and did deep-tissue work so my recovery would go faster. He'd make adjustments to my at-home therapy so I could be more effective with what I do. OVERALL POSITIVE EXPERIENCE Both Dr Mehaffy and the wonderful office manager Joann make you feel welcome, are really genuine people, and take your questions and issues seriously and help resolve them. I highly recommend Peninsula RSI and Dr Mehaffy, they are really top-notch!
