“Scheck & Siress were amazing with getting the leg that fitted right. I was always told that your leg man will become your best friend. I never understood it until I came here. I’ve been very lucky to find my leg man and I actually found him through another amputee. I’ve been very blessed. ” ▬ Katie Gazzola, Scheck & Siress Patient










“Scheck & Siress has been my angel. Our practitioner has changed our world completely. It’s my son Ethan’s first time walking since he lost his legs and it’s been a blessing being a part of Scheck & Siress. ” ▬ Theresa Sappington, Mother of Scheck & Siress Patient










“I appreciate Scheck & Siress for taking care of my legs. I’m being treated really well. After getting both my legs amputated, the process was very easy and smooth here.” ▬ Felix Ayala, Scheck & Siress Patient
