The silver lining on the back of a nasty ankle injury was meeting Tiffany from Oapl who fitted me for my boot. A kind, empathetic and knowledgeable technician. I was very grateful for her excellent and considerate care during my fitting.
Our daughter has Rett Syndrome and has been seeing oapl for 25 years. Maree was the first person to have (new material) AFOs made for her, our physiotherapist was impressed. We have found the staff friendly, helpful and their expertise is reassuring.
I have found the relationship I have built with my consultant and staff at OAPL to be of great value to my mental, emotional and physical well-being. They are always responsive and considerate towards my needs and am forever greatful for sharing my journey with them.
