The goal was a simple one, to provide the kind of care and service for everyone that they would for their own family. Without any affiliations with doctors or hospitals, Richard and Carla started Achieve Sports Medicine and Sang, Carla, Rich and Christian Rehab. The mission statement was simple, “Put the needs of the patient first and foremost and success will follow.” Nine years later, in a very different climate for healthcare providers, the philosophy of Achieve has not changed. With the focus of healthcare becoming less about the patient and more about the bottom line, Achieve has managed to keep the family attitude and patient-centered approach that has allowed them to meet the Waldwick area’s physical therapy needs for almost a decade now. “ We were always an underdog”, states co-owner Richard Sica, “ all we could offer was quality care. We felt that if we did things the right way and provided the kind of service that we would want for ourselves, people would come and through word of mouth we would succeed.” Achieve also boasts of a very experienced and caring staff that has become part of the family atmosphere. Sang Lee, has been part of the Achieve family since 2001 and has been practicing Physical Therapy for over a decade. Recent addition Christian Atexide, DPT has known the Sicas for 15 years and been practicing for more than 18 in a variety of outpatient settings. In March of 2006, Richard and Carla joined with long-time friend and associate Debbie Dieter-Barker in opening a second facility, Achieve TruCare Physical Therapy in Wyckoff. The same values of patient first in a friendly, family environment are practiced there. Achieve Sportsmedicine & Rehab is located at 168 Franklin Turnpike. The staff will work with you and your insurance company to get patients the therapy they need. Call (201) 493-7440 with any questions.
