Reviews for This Program
Upon hearing the news that I needed major abdominal surgery, I became instantly anxious. I recalled a prior surgery and the challenges associated with it. A friend recommended Chris Duffy-Wentzel and the Prepare for Surgery Workshop. I was skeptical. The experience exceeded my expectations. I used considerably less pain medication than my prior surgery AND was working with a physical therapist weeks ahead of schedule. She coached me on how to speak with the anesthesiologist and surgeon. I was surprised at their willingness to support my process. Chris followed up, ensuring everything was going well. I highly recommend the Heal Faster program and Chris.
Chris’s calming voice and presence over the phone was very reassuring and comforting. She has personal experience with the Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster program and I found her confidence and conviction powerful support tools. My shoulder surgery went smoothly and I am back to painting landscapes. I’m positive that Chris will help others feel empowered and approach their surgery with a positive attitude.
Eternal thanks to Chris for helping make my foot surgery so successful! We had been working toward a March 2020 surgery date when the pandemic shut everything down. But the work we had done helped me cope with the delays until the August operation. My surgeon is so amazed by my healing progress that he is letting me out of the boot two weeks early. When he asked my secret, I was so happy to say that it was kind, empathic, talented Chris Duffy.
