What Our Patients Are Saying
Ive went through breast cancer
Ive went through breast cancer, 2 infections which required two surgeries in 3 weeks. Those required lots of physical therapy. I have neurothapy from chemotherapy that required PT. Sheree King is the stuff. She has really helped me over the past 1.5 yrs. She introduced me to Reagan who was also wonderful. Now I’m returning… Read more “Ive went through breast cancer”
No longer Drowning
Experts say most people drown silently, that it’s not one of those Hollywood events where there is lots of splashing and calls for help. The stricken person just slips away when family and friends are tending to everyday things and momentarily look away from you. That is how it feels to have cancer and lymphedema.… Read more “No longer Drowning”
You all are awesome!
I was referred to Ribbons PT by my radiologist and oncologist. I was diagnosed with breast cancer, which has metastasized to bones and lungs. I feel comfortable going because I know everyone there has some kind of cancer. I don’t fell self-conscience at all. Sheree and Reagan have helped so much with my pain, my… Read more “You all are awesome!”
Ribbons is a positive place
Ribbons PT is a positive place. Everyone is helpful and responds to questions and needs. Sheree has been a Godsend for my improved health. After a double mastectomy and removal of several nodes in my arm, I was sent to Sheree. She worked with me to give me full movement of my arm. Sheree is… Read more “Ribbons is a positive place”
Brighten everyone’s day
I had breast cancer and they removed lymph nodes in my right armpit. I was in Bristol Regional Medical Center 18 times in 1 year. My friend at church who worked the Bristol cancer center told me about Ribbons. I got a referral from my doctor. The first time I visited Ribbons I was very… Read more “Brighten everyone’s day”
Job well done!
Thank you Ribbons Physical Therapy for a job well done! For over 2 1/2 years the lymphedema in both of my legs kept me in agony. I didn’t even know what was going on with my legs until I went to Ribbons. Thank you Sheree King and staff for your help.
To Everyone at Ribbons
To everyone at Ribbons, My husband and I want to THANK YOU for the level of care you’ve shown to both of us. Cancer is hard on the patient, but also on the care-giver. You all have made us feel welcome, and treated us both with kindness and patience. I can’t think of any place… Read more “To Everyone at Ribbons”
Receiving a cancer diagnosis is a life-altering event
Receiving a cancer diagnosis is a life-altering event in every category. When it came time for physical therapy after surgery and radiation, a dear friend who had breast cancer a year earlier had seen Sheree King at Ribbons Physical Therapy to assist her recovery. My surgeon gladly made the referral to Sheree as she had… Read more “Receiving a cancer diagnosis is a life-altering event”
Sheree, Reagan and Staff, I just wanted to thank you all for the excellent care I received during our time together. Your compassion, empathy, expertise, and patience are second to none!

Dear Sheree, Thank you for being such an important, effective and kind lifeline for me in the months since my mastectomy. I have encountered many health care professionals in this process and your expertise and that of your staff stand out as having made a huge difference for me. Your companionship in encountering my new… Read more “Heidi”
Sheree was recommended to me by several people, both doctors and nurses as well as individuals like me with lymphedema (in left arm) as a result of cancer surgery and treatment. I lived and worked in Johnson City so initially I could not travel to Kingsport for therapy. My lymphedema was early stage and quickly… Read more “Laura”
Just a note to express sincere appreciation. Few neck problems come and no pain in the head, and the pump is making a significant difference in arm pit and shoulder fluid accumulation. Sheree, your knowledge and problem-solving is unsurpassed. Thank you for making my quality of life so much better currently AND for the past… Read more “Ramona”
Last week I completed my physical therapy at Ribbons. It was one part of my cancer recovery treatment I was a little sad to see end. The therapists at Ribbons became my friends as they helped to work through the needed to steps to resolve my physical problems that were a result of my chemo… Read more “Emma”
After being diagnosed with lymphedema I chose Ribbons PT and Sheree King for treatment. From the initial visit I realized this was going to be more than treatment but also education. Any and all questions I had were answered, I was treated professionally and made to feel very comfortable and encouraged. From the staff, all… Read more “Joel”
I started seeing Sheree in the spring of 2020. It seemed she knew right away the lymphedema in my arm was somewhat out of the ordinary. Sheree stayed in contact with my oncologist’s office and when my lymphedema wasn’t responding to treatment as it should, she suggested more scans. Sheree is truly a God send—… Read more “Jody”
I have seen Sheree King, CLT-LANA therapist, for over ten years. I had lymphedema undiagnosed before that as I experience it more in my trunk area. A PT seeing me for a back issue recognized it and referred me to Sheree. Thankful…as I experience such relief from a burdensome problem with Sheree’s massage. When I… Read more “Donna S.”
