Testimonials for Trish as a Mobile Physio
Trish Duke is an excellent Community Physiotherapist. I have known and worked with her for 7 years.
She has a strong desire to see every client reach their maximum potential for enabling them to be as
independent as possible in their home environment. She works well with other health professionals to
reach common goals with the client. Trish has well developed assessment and treatment techniques and will refer clients
for additional treatment and intervention when required, therefore always looking for the best intervention for the person.
Trish’s excellent communication skills give her the ability to work intimately with clients working out a suitable treatment plan
and long term goals. I have always enjoyed working with Trish as part of the Community Rehabilitation Team with the common
goal of maximising independence for our clients.

Trish Duke has worked as a mobile physiotherapist for a number of years. 9 years ago, I contacted her with regards to providing
treatment for my mother. Trish always performed her role with a high degree of professionalism and expertise.
Over time Trish and mum developed a strong rapport and friendship. Mum often called Trish regarding health issues and always
received considerate and kind responses. Trish could always be relied upon to provide ongoing support and appropriate treatments.
Her expertise and willingness to access any other support that mum required helped mum to maintain her mobility and independence.
Trish has happily, respectfully and competently treated and supported my mum over the years and would offer all of her clients the

Following total knee surgery, I needed physiotherapy and decided to ask Trish Duke to come to my house. I was so glad I did.
Trish is a lovely person and so good at her profession, and she helped me so much. After my surgery to the other knee, I had
no hesitation in calling Trish and again she did a great job, and I can thoroughly recommend her.
