We have amazing patients!

Every single day, we see people who inspire us, who make us smile and laugh and impress us with their courage and good humor in the face of the adversity of limb loss. On this page, you will be able to see what they have to say in their own words.

Sometimes I have to stop from my busy schedule and realized how blessed I am to have such a great support system behind me. I don’t know where I would be, literally, if I had never met the amazing team at A Step Ahead Prosthetics. They have given me so much, from beautiful legs to walk in to walking pain-free every day. They make it easy to be an amputee. Thank you for all that you have done for me! I appreciate it more than you’ll ever know.

During this time of year, I always go back and look at all that I have to be grateful for. Especially with Covid and my near death experience. There are so many people that have helped me through this, especially my most recent battle back from my CABG surgery.

I want to thank you and your team for all their help and support over the years. This past event you really jumped in when [we] called you and helped us a great deal (…). Your quick action, support and knowledge enabled me to return to walking much quicker versus using someone else. You also helped out with my request for a shamrock. You took great pleasure in helping me every step of the way.

I can’t thank you enough for all you have done, especially with my recent issues. Your staff as well is one of the best and most responsive. Thank you and the Step Ahead team for all you have done. I am very grateful for all you have done for me.

I wanted to thank you so much for helping me to come to your company. It’s been over a week now, and I have never been happier. My skin is still adjusting but I carry myself in a new way. I carry myself with so much pride and joy. This company has saved me. I didn’t even know it was possible for me to believe in myself or to be able to have mobility at this level. Erik, your company gave me my life back. You all are so amazing. Please don’t ever stop what you are doing.

Miracle workers! Our son has a hip disarticulation loss and due to the amazing care of the people at A Step Ahead, he is living as an able bodied high school student! Outstanding technology, outstanding craftsmanship, outstanding people!

I can not thank Erik and the entire A Step Ahead Prosthetics team enough for all their expertise and support and giving me my life back. Without them I would not be able to ‘Live Life Without Limitations’ nor ride to raise funds to find a cure for diabetes.

I’ve known Erik and the staff for over 20 years and so far I have not found a challenge they’re not ready to tackle. Their facilities are equipped to handle anything, from a maintenance visit to a full carbon build. These guys are serious about finding the best fit and making the the very best prosthetics!

It is well worth the travel each way as I feel like I am in the best environment/facility for my new “life”… when my surgeons in NYC told me this was the best place in the world to attend, they were not kidding! Every time I am there I meet ‘people’ from other countries, and so on… It is a ‘great’ place to talk to others who are in the same position… I feel like a part of a close family…

Mark W., Below Knee Amputee

I am a bilateral amputee with a bony residual limb. The expertise, professionalism and patience given to me by your prosthetists each time I need a new fitting is second to none. They are truly the best at what they do. Thank you for employing such caring professionals!
