Angie McGriffin

Angie McGriffin, VP of Admin

My name is Angie McGriffin and I was born and raised here in the town of Valparaiso, IN. I have 1 sister and 2 brothers. My mother was born and raised in Valparaiso, IN and my dad came over from Germany when he was 12 years old. I went to elementary school at Memorial Elementary, Middle school at Ben Franklin and Valparaiso High School in which I graduated in 1983 with a Business Major. I played soccer and volley ball during my school days and participated in school plays and ball room dancing. After I graduated high school, I worked at Wendy’s until I moved to LaPorte, IN with my fiancé. I got married in 1989 and had 2 beautiful girls Ashley and Stacy. We moved back to Valparaiso, IN and I was a stay at home mom for 15 years. I went back to work at a vegetable stand in Kouts, IN for the summers. Then proceeded to work at Michaels in 2004 for a week before my aunt came to my house and told me about Orthopedic Therapy Specialists where she was having therapy. She informed me that Arlan was looking for help for the front desk. That next day I had an interview and Arlan decided to give me a chance and hire me. I have been working at OBTS for 12 years as of September 16, 2004, where I have grown as a person and have learned so many things under the supervision of Noel. I am now the VPA at Orthopedic and Balance Therapy Specialists. I am very grateful that Arlan and Noel gave me the chance to work for them and grow as an employee. I got divorced in 2007 and met a wonderful man named Mike and have been happy ever since. I love to dance and have a collection of porcelain dolls I am very proud of. I like to go to seasonal festivals and flea markets. As I get older, I value the time I have with my family. As I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason and you never know what will happen.

I could barely walk into OBTS six weeks ago. I had very bad lower back and hip pain. The progress has been life changing for me. I always walk out of there with little or no pain. The staff, Laura, Dr Diane, Angie and, of course, Peggy, have taught me so much to keep my pain at bay. I highly recommend this team.

This was the only place that could help with my TMJ. If you’re suffering from TMJ go see Noel! He really understands the condition. I no long have to deal with constant pain! The whole staff at this office is amazing and very welcoming.

Amazing staff and amazing care. I came in barely able to stand up straight due to a back injury. After 6 weeks, I feel like brand new. Everyone was extremely helpful and easy to work with. Highly recommended!

I am a PTA student that was required 16 hours of observation time. I had the pleasure of completing my hours at this Valpo location. The staff is incredibly friendly. They were quick to make me feel at home. In a way I was sad to leave, but happy to continue on. I hope to eventually work in this field with a work family this caring and knowledgeable about their profession.

My first experience with OBTS was very positive. During the course of my 13 therapy sessions I worked with many different therapists and all of them were professional and competent. They were able to help me effectively control my pain without medication using their therapy program. Unfortunately, they could not get my physical condition back to the same ability as before. However, this is due to the fact that it was later determined by my doctors that I required surgery. I plan on returning to OBTS for my post-op physical therapy and have already scheduled my evaluation appointment. Scheduling seems to be a challenge sometimes but that's probably an indication of their patient's satisfaction and good reviews. Thank you OBTS!

Everyone that worked with me was helpful. I enjoyed watching the staff interact as they worked as they laughed and smiled making me feel that it was fun to exercise. My knee pain is less and I look forward to having the same results with my back.

My wife and I have been coming here for a year. They have wonderful customer service and the treatments were great. I could say that since coming here for treatments, I am now able to walk properly and sleep well at nights. They help you in the best way possible. The people here are great and we definitely recommend it to everyone!

I have read lots of reviews that say "the entire staff of ..." is great, and you know that it is BS.. .. Butt at OBTS that statement is true. The person answering the phone, appointment setting they work around my schedule. It is truly a team concept. Everyone that has work with/on me keeps me focus on getting healthy to play golf.... Even those employees that haven't work with/on me are upbeat, positive and encouraging both their patients and me..... follow up phone calls, positive, hand written notes of encouragement, reminding me to do my homework so I can play golf this year. Great Employees, Great Business!.

I’ve had an incredible experience here at OBTS. In just two and half weeks I’ve seen and felt remarkable results. My hip mobility has improved by 30%. I credit the excellent physical therapists and the deep tissue laser therapy for my gains. I’ve gone from walking with a limp and pain everyday to walking normally and know that I’ll be back to running in the future. Every single person is warm and friendly here. Great place!
