How New Hope Changed Tammy Sellers' Life

February 08, 2016

If you're a patient at New Hope, you're family - and you shouldn't be treated like anything less. Because of our customer care mentality, we're proud to say we have the most loyal patients in town who continually come back to us for a lifetime. One of our most dedicated customers is Tammy Sellers from Little Rock, Arkansas. Her journey of hopping from one Prosthetic company to the next, and eventually making New Hope her "home", is truly inspirational. Here is her story.

"I have to take a few minutes to tell you about an amazing example of how all medical offices should treat their patients. I started going to New Hope Prosthetics & Orthotics in 2009. When I originally started, I was a recent below knee amputee.

October 05, 2015

If you're in need of prosthetics you'll want to read this. The Medicare administration recently announced it will be making drastic negative changes impacting ALL prosthetic patients. Medicare is now only providing outdated technology and supplies that haven't been used since the 1970s. This step back in technology is dangerous and inefficent.
