Dr. Brenda with Patient

About Us

After working in several different physical therapy clinics, Dr. Brenda Heinecke realized that they all had the same environment with minimal privacy and a sterile feel. She became frustrated with the lack of personal attention and hands-on care. And she found that people shared her frustrations with lack of privacy and lack of individual attention. So she came up with a solution in order to give people the quality women's health care that they really needed in order to get better faster.  You will find that our core values have always been to value your time, privacy and comfort level.  If you find that we may share similar values, please check out our other stories from past patients that have had a similar experience.
