I AM A LONG TIME PATIENT OF ROGER PARK'S. I AM EXTREMELY IMPRESSED WITH HIS ABILITIES AND ATTITUDE. HE IS BY FAR THE BEST ORTHOTIST THAT I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE DEALING WITH. I REFER HIM TO EVERY PERSON THAT INQUIRES ABOUT ORTHOTICS.
The best service all around. Roger treats ME with care and understandS my needs. Those needs are being able to continue living a life hiking and backcounty skiing. At the age of 58 and have been active 55 of those years.
Very Awesome experience and this allows me at age 56 to continue running comfortably as I have done since I was age 14. Running has benefited my health, so, this is no small benefit.
Roger's experience shines through as he interacts with his patients.
I recommend Roger Park of Acadia Orthotics, LLC for your running orthotic needs. There are two simple reasons for my making this recommendation: improved racing times and injury free running.
I first went to Roger Park in 2002 with a worn out pair of orthotics which needed re-covering. After looking at my feet and my shoes and watching me run on a treadmill Roger said, "I can build a better pair of orthotics than this." I took him at his word and had him make a pair. When they were ready I did, what you will do, I went for a run. At that time I was running on my lunch break at work and I had a regular route. My first day running with the new orthotics I was surprised to notice that my time was about 30 seconds faster than usual. That was a harbinger of things to come! Since then I have set new PR's in every race distance from mile to marathon and have qualified for the Boston Marathon three times!
Four years after my first visit I went back to Roger and asked if he could make a lighter pair of orthotics for racing. He could and did! My race times continued to drop! Roger cautioned me that the lighter pair would not be as durable as the original ones but three years later I am using them exclusively and they are holding up flawlessly.
In the years since I started running in orthotics crafted by Roger Park I have had no biomechanical running injuries and did I mention that my race times continue to drop?!
I am confident that Roger Park can achieve comparable results for any runner and I wholeheartedly recommend him to my friends and fellow runners.
DISCLAIMER: I am not an elite runner, just a dedicated amateur athlete.
DISCLAIMER 2: Its really not about the race times, its all about the joy of running.
