Physical Therapy Hopkins MN Susan Lutz Office Manager

Susan Lutz - Office Manager & Patient Advocate

Susan is our Office Manager and Patient Advocate here at Wellspring. Since joining our team in 2014, Susan has made it her goal to make the patient experience as stress-free as possible. Prior to the start of care, she meets with you for a discussion about your insurance coverage, which helps create workable financial options for care.

Susan infuses the office with positivity and leads with a calm confidence, creating a peaceful environment for the professional staff to provide patient care.

In her personal life, Susan focuses on nurturing and raising her young son, Coleton. "I feel proud of the fact that my son knows that when I go to work, I'm not doing it just to pay the bills, he knows that I'm going to work to help people".

Physical Therapy Hopkins MN Karla Greb Front Desk Coordinator & Patient Advocate

Karla Greb - Front Desk Coordinator

Upon entering our office, you'll be greeted with a warm welcome and the friendly smile of Karla our Front Desk Coordinator. She has been with Wellspring since its inception in 2008, and thrives on helping our patients and massage clients have an exceptional experience when they visit. She loves to witness the life changing impact that holistic physical therapy makes in the lives of our patients. When someone can barely walk into the office due to excessive pain levels and later, after completing their treatment plan, they can walk out with a smile on their face, it is more than gratifying to say the least. Over the years Karla has been able to witness miracles like these in the kids, adults and seniors that come through Wellspring's doors.

Karla will be helping you with scheduling needs, payment options and keeping you informed about special events or classes to support your care. She also coordinates our community outreach programs, including onsite chair massage and massage certificate donations for local fund-raising events.

Outside of the office, Karla is busy participating in activities around the cities with her Great Dane, Cash. She serves on the Board of Directors with a local Great Dane Rescue. "Being with the rescue brings joy and despair all in one. I am honored to be a part of saving Great Danes, but saddened that these big pups go through so much stress and heartache when left behind."
