Orthotist: Darlene Zaineb
Office: Livonia
Patient: Helen Beckman

I came in to see Darlene in the Livonia office after my doctor recommended a certain type of night splint to treat my plantar fasciitis. After wearing this splint for a few nights I realized this particular type of splint doesn’t work well with my foot shape. I came back in for adjustments and Darlene was very accommodative. She reached out to my physician to make sure they were ok with changing the type of splint and had great communication along the way. I left filled with content and will return if anything is needed. Hopefully, it won’t be. I appreciated all of the staff including upfront. Everyone was very cordial and kind in their effort to make this right and get rid of my foot pain.

I started at the VA and was not happy with their services so I tried Wright & Filippis and haven’t looked back. I have been coming to them for 30+ years now.

I started with the Detroit office and have been happy with every leg I have acquired. “We haven’t failed him yet!”

I will recommend Wright & Filippis to all that I know.

Orthotist: Mark Quenneville
Office: Kalamazoo
Patient: Chase Hillring

My son was diagnosed with Plagiocephaly, which required us to get him a helmet to correct this condition. We were referred to Mark by another mother. We loved everything about Mark! He made sure the helmet fit properly, to make our helmet wearing process a breeze. He really made this experience as easy as it could possibly be.

Orthotist: Kayleigh Nelson
Office: Grand Rapids
Patient: Elliot Datema

AMAZING experience!!! My son was diagnosed with Plagiocephaly, flat spot on his head. The staff was so friendly and able to schedule my son for his helmet within just a couple of days. This process can be long and frustrating between getting the referral from the primary doctor, to insurance coverage, fitting him for the helmet, and then helping him adjust to wearing it. I had previously gone through this process with my other son and Wright and Filippis was SO much faster to help us start the process. I didn’t have to wait 6 weeks to be seen and another 1-2 weeks for his helmet to arrive. Wright and Filippis were completely on top of things and were able to help correct my son’s flat spot MUCH faster. Which ultimately meant that he didn’t have to wear the helmet as long as my other son had to wear his. Overall, Wright and Filippis took 3 months to make my perfect baby even more perfect. Also, Kayleigh provided her cell number so if I had any questions, I could text her. GREAT experience and I really appreciated everything they did for us.


Prosthetist: Troy Kunst
Office: Rochester Hills
Patient: Mark Taras

I am an above the knee amputee and I wouldn’t be in such a positive place today without meeting and developing client/friendship relationship with Troy Kunst. He is highly professional, intelligent, informative, with lots of experience and he has made my transition with my prosthetic so much easier. His attention to detail, patience, and communication are wonderful to have when I am just starting my journey to a full recovery. I look forward to the days ahead in regaining a productive life with the help of Troy.


Prosthetist: Rodney Coleman
Office: Flint
Patient: Robert Dale Horton JR.

I have a below the knee amputation due to a broken ankle and diabetic infection. I needed someplace to do a prosthesis for me and I was recommended to Rodney. Our visits are easy and somewhere at my home which is a huge convenience. Glad I was introduced to Rodney and the W&F staff, they have been instrumental in getting me mobile and doing all activities and getting me back to my everyday living. Thank you 100%!


Prosthetist: Rodney Coleman
Office: Flint
Patient: Kelsey Koch

I was born with the absence of my left tibia bone which led to an amputation at nine months old. I am a patient of Wright and Filippis for one reason, and that reason is my prosthetist; Rodney Coleman. Rodney has been a part of my journey since day one. My prosthesis allows me to work, golf, do yoga and walk up the stairs foot over foot. Out of all that I have learned through my journey, there’s one thing she wants you to know; you are capable of anything you set your mind to. You are enough. Don’t let a label define you.


Prosthetist: Rodney Coleman
Office: Flint
Patient: Brendan Gatica

My first visit was before I was born, I was born without my fibula. My Parents had lots of questions about the prosthetics and visited Wright & Filippis. I’ve known and Rodney all my life and really like seeing him. He does a great job fitting and making adjustments to my foot.


Prosthetist: Mike Allen
Office: Ferndale
Patient: Darell Jones

I have an above the knee prosthesis. I would like to thank Mike and W&F  for helping me fight to get the leg I deserve. Best leg I have had in 30 years!


Prosthetist: Mike Allen
Office: Ferndale
Patient: Rishi Patel

I am very impressed with Wright and Fillipis, and the level of care and products they have. I have an Ottobock X3 right above knee prosthesis, and it is an incredible piece of machinery. W&F has been there for me since the beginning of my amputation.  They have provided me with around the clock care with socket fitting and re-adjustment with my leg for better ambulation. Not only has W&F helped me with the physical components needed for ambulation, but they have given me a very positive outlook on the whole process of getting back on my feet to resume normalcy.

I can speak for many others, and myself that going through any type of amputation is a physically and mentally daunting challenge. This is a type of situation in which you are reminded of every day. The only advice that I can give to others in these situations is to keep working with your physical therapists and prosthetist to get the best possible outcome for yourself and your future. In my case, Michael Allen of W&F has helped me get over many obstacles of getting used to the new prosthesis and being able to use it in my day to day activities with a feeling of normalcy.  I really appreciate all that W&F has done for me and will continue to do in my future!!


Prosthetist: Mike Allen
Office: Ferndale
Patient: Sean English

I was involved in a motor vehicle accident back in April of 2017, where I lost my leg. I was outside of my car on the side of highway 96, the main highway in Detroit. I was rushed to Henry Ford Hospital with a tourniquet around my leg near death. That is when I thought my life and athletic career were over. The doctors saved my life, and Wright & Filippis saved my sanity. Sports were and still are my life and without the work that Mike and everyone in this amazing company did, I wouldn’t be as positive and happy as I am today. Not only did Wright & Filippis make me a perfectly fitting leg, but they also did it very quickly. I felt like a friend or even a family. A lot of companies only care about the paycheck, not Wright & Filippis. This is not just a one and done relationship, this is a continuing support group that helps me through everything. Not only do I speak to Mike about any problems with my prosthetic, but we frequently text about my life and his. So when I talk about having dreams, they haven’t changed. When I dream about being a great runner, I can still achieve these dreams. This is all thanks to the amazing men and women of Wright & Filippis.


Orthotist: Lynne Galonek & Brian Paulson
Office: Farmington Hills
Patient: Kathleen Bedard

It has been such a wonderful surprise to be able to walk without having the feeling of a 50-pound weight on my leg, without the fear of falling, without difficulty, and without fatigue.  The Bioness L300 GO lower leg brace has afforded me this ability!

I was pleasantly surprised & thrilled by both Lynne Galonek’s, CPO and Brian Paulson’s, CPO recommendation & knowledge of this device.  They work at the Farmington Hills & Livonia offices of Wright & Filippis, respectively.  I learned about this brace from Lynne in November 2018 at the Farmington Hills office.  She contacted Brian and they both made arrangements to meet with me for my initial trial to determine if this device would help me.  They both have spent much time perfecting the electrical stimulation for my ideal walk.  Their enthusiasm, patience, knowledge, & assistance is so appreciated.  They continue to touch base with me to ensure that all is working well and that I am satisfied.

I am looking forward to walking at the zoo and park with my granddaughter, walking around town with friends and family, walking my dog in the neighborhood, and walking around various vacation spots, all without difficulty, slowness, tripping, falling, and fatigue.  It has made everyday normal activities easier to accomplish.  The L300 GO has given me back the freedom of walking without great difficulty and fatigue.  Both Lynne and Brian have been instrumental in this most welcome improvement!!  Thanks to their knowledge and efforts, I can walk safely and confidently again.  I would highly recommend Wright &  Filippis to others, especially Lynne Galonek & Brian Paulson!


Prosthetist: Amy Webb
Office: Farmington Hills
Patient: William Allison

I have been a patient with Wright & Fillippis since April 2017. I had to have a below the knee amputation in April 2017 on my left leg for persistent cellulitis and osteomyelitis on my left foot. My entire experience with Wright & Fillippis has been wonderful. I have always been very active and was very concerned about being able to return to an active lifestyle after the surgery. Amy has been a real source of encouragement for me through the whole process. She made the whole experience much easier by working with me to find the right prosthesis that would give me the best opportunity to be fully active again. I am back to playing golf, going to the gym, and traveling again. The whole process has been difficult, but very successful because of the care and professionalism provided by Amy and everyone at Wright & Fillippis.  I can fully recommend Amy Webb and the Wright Fillippis team and look forward to working with them in the future


Orthotist: Robin Beals
Office: Farmington Hills
Patient: Evelyn Manadrino

My daughter Evelyn is a client of Robin Beals at the Wright & Filippis office in Farmington Hills. We have been working with Robin since August to use a cranial remolding helmet to correct a flat spot on my daughter’s head. At one month, my daughter had a pretty noticeable flat head (likely from birth) and at month two we were told that it was due to tight neck muscles preventing her from turning her head. After going through several months of physical therapy, we were referred to Wright & Filippis because her head shape just wasn’t improving. This was a difficult time for me as a new parent; I was anxious about Evelyn wearing a “helmet” and what kind of changes that would bring about in our daily lives. Our Orthotist, Robin, made our helmet journey much easier than I expected. She is caring in her interactions with our family, thoughtful in her craft and always gives her honest opinion regarding progress and timelines with Evelyn’s helmet therapy. I always appreciate that she is able to answer questions quickly and is flexible with scheduling follow up appointments. Evelyn has about one more month of treatment and then we get to enjoy her beautiful round head, thanks to Robin and Wright & Filippis!


Prosthetist: Robin Beals
Office: Farmington Hills
Patient: Emma Wacht

I have been with Wright & Filippis for fourteen years solely because of Robin Beals. She has been with us since Emma was born and has helped Emma be a competitive gymnast for nine years, competitive cheer & high school volleyball player. Robin has always been sensitive to Emma’s appearance concerns and worked with us to find the best solution for her. Emma never complains about the fit and her ability to communicate & trust Robin is a true blessing in our lives! Wright & Filippis work as a team, if Robin ever has a question or concern she will always consult her colleagues for their opinions and experience on what is best for Emma. They are a very caring team and an advocate for our daughter.


Orthotist: Allison Tabaka
Office: Farmington Hills
Patient: Elaine Shapiro

I have bone on bone arthritis and am an active tennis player. I needed a brace for my knee to continue playing tennis and Allison has been so attentive in supporting me to remain an active and competitive tennis player. She takes the time to recognize my weaknesses and makes sure the brace I have supports all of those areas. Allison makes sure the brace works properly by watching me walk, pivot and move so that all those areas are properly supported by the brace. She is always happy to make adjustments or to fit me in when my brace needs to be looked at.


Prosthetist: Lynn Galonek & Amy Bleed
Office: Farmington Hills
Patient: Amber Bowman

I love Wright & Filippis because when you walk-in everyone is welcoming. They make you feel comfortable being an amputee, which isn’t always easy. Wright & Filippis has the best doctors! Lynn and Amy have done wonders for me and have made sure I have nothing but the best. They both have made it to where I can do more than what I was originally allowed to do. Wright & Filippis doesn’t just give you the best leg, they give you confidence and inspiration! Lynne and Amy don’t come to work to just work they come to work to improve other people’s lives.


Orthotist: Maureen “Mo” McDade
Office: DMC
Patient: Lorraine Trotter

We love Wright & Filippis because we love Mo and think of everyone here as a family! Mo has been such a wonderful support system throughout the years and I can’t imagine this journey without her and the services she provides. Every single pair of braces Darrenique has worn in her lifetime are braces made by Mo & W&F. W&F provides Mo with the flexibility, freedom, and resources she needs to provide all pediatric patients with the best possible care. Loving W&F and Mo, go hand in hand because it truly is a team effort and we are blessed to have the entire team in Darrenque’s corner! We look forward to many more years of bracing with the Mo/W&F Team!


Orthotist: John Galonek
Office: DMC
Patient: Stephen Tinnin

Wright & Filippis have been there for me through the course of my recovery. My Orthotist John is very attentive to my needs. He has made me a great pair of AFO’s to get me back to walking, and he never makes me feel like a bother when I come in for adjustments. He has gone above and beyond to make sure I am comfortable with everything that is done.


Orthotist: Patricia Medlock
Office: Battle Creek
Patient: Zane & Zandrea Cole

My twins were born at 29 weeks. Since they were so early they spent a lot of time in NICU, and they both had flattening on their head. This office is wonderful, polite and nice. If you need to change an appointment it is never a hassle and is always accommodating, especially since my schedule changes often. Zane has already completed helmet therapy after wearing it for three months, while Zandrea just began her helmet therapy and she has already made great gains! I would definitely recommend them!


Orthotist: Brian Paulson

“Wright & Filippis treats you like family, they have outstanding patient care!”Their expertise is impeccable, they listen and patiently explain to you in a way you can understand. Natalie has such a gentle, caring way about her and has impacted my quality of life. We always look forward to seeing Natalie she is an outstanding professional.


Orthotist: Melanie Myers
Office: Clinton Township
Patient: JoAnn Alfonsi

After having knee replacements I started having problems with my feet. A friend of mine recommended me to Wright & Filippis, and I couldn’t have been happier. I have been coming here for over two years now! I have worked with Melanie multiple times. She always adjusts my foot orthotics to make sure I am comfortable and makes sure I feel comfortable and better than when I walked in. She is very knowledgeable about this and recommended I seek additional help. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have known that I needed a hip replacement.


Orthotist: Melanie Myers
Office: Clinton Township
Patient: Alice Mason

I have used every type of women’s care product after having breast surgery. Everyone I have dealt with has been very helpful, respectful, and caring. You can’t expect any more than that! I am very thankful for being a client of Melanie’s, she does everything to make sure my needs are always met, and is always helpful and caring.


Prosthetist: Austin Balogh
Office: Clinton Township
Patient: Timothy Fluary

I have been a patient of Wright & Filippis for four years, and I was recommended by a family member to see Austin. He is a phenomenal prosthetist! He treats people with respect, he took on all of my needs an made sure everything worked to my satisfaction and most of all he helped me reach my goals after becoming an amputee.


Orthotist: Brett Conley
Office: Battle Creek
Patient: Dawn Williams

I love it here and I fit right in the first time, every time! I was given a choice where to go and I am glad I chose Wright & Filippis and have never looked back. I have been a patient with them for roughly seven years and I would highly recommend them to anyone, the staff is always very friendly and helpful.


Prosthetist: Bill Simon
Office: Ann Arbor
Patient: Gae Miller

I am so happy with the services Wright & Filippis has provided me for over 15 years. They have provided me with three C- legs and have always worked closely with me to make sure the fit is perfect so that I can be as mobile as possible. I have had several prosthetists over the years. All have been great including Bill Simon. The responsive, thorough and comprehensive care I receive from Wright & Filippis makes my quality of life possible.

I am currently in an Ischial Containment Socket with a flexible inner knee with a C- leg four microprocessor knee and a Triton vertical shock foot. My advice to other users: I have been able to incorporate Wright & Filippis as part of my team to manage my amputation and make my life as an amputee as productive and pleasant as possible. I urge everyone to keep working with your prosthetist until you get it right- it’s possible and worth the effort!


Prosthetist: Edward Brewer
Office:
Livonia
Patient: John Hinkle

I have been a patient of Ed’s for 10 years and I called him my prosthetic angel! When he talked to me first about getting the first leg through him, the way he spoke to me he seemed like an angel with a full load of knowledge. After seeing him for some time I realized that was true. Any time I needed anything he was there for me. He is a god sent! 

Ed keeps up with my record and makes any adjustments and corrections when needed. He also is very up to date and I am the first person in Michigan to get this new type of microprocessor prosthetic ankle. I would recommend Ed Brewer to anybody. But only if you like angels. He is one heck of a good guy.


Prosthetist: Bill Simon
Office: Ann Arbor
Patient: Jim Germane

“Super people, all around. Never had any better service than when working with them. I wish I would have known Bill when I first lost my leg. I am happy they take my insurance and offer payment plans for any out of pocket. Bill is readily available when I need him for a follow-up. ”

I have been a patient with Wright & Filippis since the spring of 2015. I visit the Ann Arbor office and Bill Simon is my Prosthetist. I had to have an above knee amputation in 2003 due to a logging accident. My overall experience with Wright & Filippis has been great for me. Bill provides me with excellent care. I have always worn a direct fit socket but Bill recently had me try a new liner and it’s working out wonderful. It fits and stays on great and is easy on my skin.

I am an 80-year-old hay farmer and now that my prosthesis fits exactly the way I want it so I am able to load and unload hay, and also drive my backhoe and other farming equipment again. The secret to my success is getting back to my normal day and not feeling sorry for myself and Bill has helped me achieve that. I would highly recommend Bill Simon and look forward to working with him in the future.

“I encourage all amputees to try and remain as active as you can. The more you sit around the more work it is going to be to resume normal everyday life. I am happy that my prosthesis allows me to do all the farm work I need to do, cut and split wood, drive the tractor, work the clutch, etc. I do not stumble or have the knee buckle on this knee, even out in the grass. I have caught my foot on a grapevine and was still able to catch myself from falling. I spend a lot of time in the summer doing work around my pond and this prosthesis allows me to do that work with my leg on, I don’t have to worry about water with this knee.”



Prosthetist: Ryan Filippis
Office: Warren
Patient: George Costea

I have been a patient with Wright & Filippis since July 22, 2014. I visit the Warren office and Ryan Filippis is my Prosthetist. I had to have a below knee amputation July 21, 2014, on my left leg for persistent cellulitis and osteomyelitis of the left foot. My overall experience with Wright & Filippis has been great. I am a family physician and work 6 days a week. Ryan was very flexible and worked with my schedule. He provided me with excellent care which allowed me to continue working throughout the entire process of measuring and fitting my prosthesis. He also visited me while I was in the hospital and in rehabilitation. Afterward, he came to my office on several occasions and met with my surgeons in preparation of the proposed prosthesis.

Now that I am mobile with my prosthesis I am back to working 14 hour days and wearing my prosthesis up to 18 hours a day, 6 days a week. I am able to exercise again, swim, go on vacations and site see like I was once able to. I am happy with the progression I have made thus far. I would highly recommend Ryan Filippis and look forward to working with him in the future.



Prosthetist: Robin Beals
Office: Farmington Hills
Patient: Emma Wacht, Age 11 (Written by her mom Michele Wacht)

Emma is a below-knee amputee and has been a patient with Wright & Filippis at their Farmington Hills location and has had Robin Beals as her prosthetist since she was born. Emma had to have her rudimentary foot removed because of amniotic banding. Robin was in Emma’s surgery with Dr. Zaltz and cast Emma’s leg for her first prosthesis. Wright & Filippis and Robin have shown extreme care and innovation with Emma’s prosthesis.

Emma was walking at 14 months thanks to Dr. Zaltz and Robin. We enrolled her in Gymnastics at the age of 4 to avoid physical therapy and to keep her active and thriving. She is still in gymnastics at age 11 and competes competitively. She placed in her State meets this year on bars and vault. It’s been amazing to watch. Emma trusts Robin, as do we (her parents), completely. As Emma’s mom, I appreciate that Robin is very sensitive to the emotional aspects of an 11-year-old girl, I’m sure partly because she has a daughter of her own, but I think that’s just how Robin’s heart works. Robin is very caring and compassionate and her commitment to our family has never wavered. I do not say this lightly, but Robin has helped form the character and strength of our daughter by giving her wings (or a magic leg as we call it) to know that she can attempt and do anything because her prosthetic is an extension of her body, not a limitation. It has never defined her, but certainly challenged her intestinal fortitude at a very young age. I would without a doubt recommend Wright & Filippis and Robin Beals.



Prosthetist: Dave Keck
Office: Saginaw
Patient: Ken Wolschlager

I have been a patient with Wright & Filippis since August 1983. I lost my leg in a farming accident and Wright & Filippis helped fit me with a leg that has no irritation and that I can wear up to 16 hours a day 7 days a week. They were very flexible with appointments and being that I am a farmer, flexibility with time is important.

My prosthetist Dave Keck at the Saginaw office helped tremendously with the transition from my old leg to my new one. He develops a relationship with you and makes it very personal. He is thorough and makes sure everything is working properly and that you feel comfortable before you leave the office. Every little detail counts and he checks each one. Wright & Filippis helped me get back to my normal day. I am able to do the things I love such as giving my girls piggyback rides to the bus stop, working at the job that I love, farming, playing softball and just loving life. Thank you, Dave Keck and Wright & Filippis!



Prosthetist: Dave Keck
Office: Saginaw
Patient: Aidan Maratta, Age 8 (Written by his mom Jennifer Maratta)

Aidan has been a patient with Wright & Filippis since he was 2 or 3 months old and visits the Saginaw location and sees Dave Keck as his prosthetist. Aidan was born without a tibia bone and had surgery through his knees because he was also born without kneecaps. He wears prosthetics on both legs. Our experience with Dave has been great. I appreciate the relationship Dave has with my son. Dave loves Aidan, and Aidan loves Dave. Wright & Filippis is always flexible with getting Aidan in for any problems or adjustments with his legs. Dave is currently helping Aidan get running legs and is helping our family get a sponsor to help with the cost of the legs.

Aidan is able to walk correctly, tries to run, plays baseball, basketball and swims at his grandparent’s house often. As Aidan’s mom, I hope Dave sticks around for a long time so that Aidan can keep seeing him as his prosthetist. Our family has complete trust in Wright & Filippis and Dave Keck, and would highly recommend them for anyone needing a prosthesis.



Orthotist: Mike Hoisington
Office: Clinton Township
Patient: Dianne L. Dych-Sachs

I have been a patient with Wright & Filippis since 2001. I wear a long leg brace on my right leg an orthotic in my left shoe. I contracted polio when I was 13 months old and have residual leg paralysis. I have always needed some type of orthotics in order to walk. I am very happy with Wright & Filippis, whenever I walk into the Clinton Township office I am always pleasantly greeted by the office staff and taken care of. My orthotist Mike Hoisington, has helped me tremendously and is very aware of my post-polio condition and listens to me when I suggest different options while fitting my braces. I feel confident that I can call him whenever I need him at any time and he will get back with me as soon as possible. Mike is always up to date on the latest technology for orthotics and I appreciate that considering I need orthotics in order to walk.

Mike has helped me to be active again. I am able to do my own shopping, spend time with my grandchildren, volunteer at our post-polio clinic and even travel. I can’t imagine not being able to do these things on my own and because of Mike and the time he spends fitting my braces and fixing them when they break (because I am so active), I can’t thank him and Wright & Filippis enough!
